Oral-B 4 Pack Floss Action Refills Brush Head
Advantages: Fantastic toothbrush head, coloured bands, good price, long lasting, works well.
In the past I've nearly always used the standard toothbrush heads because these are cheapest and these are the ones that I'm used to using also. Recently I needed to stock up after realising that our toothbrush heads were looking a little bit knackered and because I wanted to change them sooner rather than later I found myself in Sainsburys that evening looking for some replacement heads on my way home from work. Stock was fairly low but there was a third off all Oral B replacement heads so I picked up a 4 packet of these floss action heads for around £12.25. This was a reasonable enough price and only a fraction more than I normally pay for my standard ones so I wasn't worried at all.
Fitting these heads is very simple, just remove your old head and this one will slot in to place. It is then quite secure and I've never had a problem with any of mine falling off and I've had an oral B for a number of years now, probably at least 3, maybe more. The only thing that is annoying about fitting the heads is the ridiculously annoying packaging. I have to cut mine open with scissors and then I keep the spare heads in a sealed pot under the sink just to keep them free of dirt and germs before I come to using them. I don't like the packaging much and wish it was something resealable that would keep the toothbrush heads clean.
The main feature that is really useful about these toothbrush heads is the small coloured circles that you get in the packaging. There are always four different colours within the packet, often different ones too. This is a fantastic feature as it allows my husband and I (with the same brushes and heads) to know which is which and keep things clean and hygienic by not using each others toothbrushes. These click in to place at the bottom of the toothbrush head and they do not fall off or slip down at all.
The heads themselves are white in appearance and they are very firm bristles. These are quite a generous size compared to the standard toothbrush heads that I buy and I like that as it helps me clean my teeth more thoroughly in the same amount of time. The bristles on the heads are blue, green, white and then there are the yellow and blue pieces that are designed to clean your teeth how floss would. The different bristle sizes and designs are fantastic and I can really feel the difference between using this toothbrush head and the one that I was using in the past, the standard one.
An electric toothbrush is just fantastic and with the addition of these heads it is even more improved. I use my toothbrush in a slow motion throughout my mouth and every area of my teeth and gums gets brushed several times while I have the toothbrush on and it rotates furiously. These toothbrush heads definitely leave my teeth feeling lovely and soft, smooth and sparkling clean. I would definitely say that my teeth were more effectively cleaned with these toothbrushes and that they definitely need less flossing than before. I do still floss my teeth after using these, normally once a day, just to maintain good hygiene and ensure that nothing is left behind by my gums and teeth. I have definitely seen a noticeable improvement in the quality of the clean of this toothbrush head compared to the standard one we normally use and I will definitely be purchasing these again in the future.
In all I am going to rate these particular heads 5/5. I still like the clean that comes from using the non floss variety however I am likely to stay using these in the future and perhaps try some of the other heads too. It is recommended that you change your head every 3 months but I probably change mine every 2 as I find that they become worn and the edges start to flay out in different angles and this annoys me as well as makes me feel like I'm not getting the best clean I can. I feel that these are worth every penny as you only get one set of real adult teeth and I want to take care of mine. My husband has also noticed a difference since we switched to using these and he is a smoker too with teeth that are finally starting to look a little more white!
Summary: A fantastic packet of toothbrush heads.
