I was recently given an Oral B electric pulsonic toothbrush as a gift. I already had a basic Oral B electric toothbrush and have been really happy with it. The new model is a more upmarket affair! It is slimmer and a lot more stylish for a start ! As I know how expensive replacement toothbrush heads are for these units,I decided to buy a replacement set when I saw them on offer in my local Tesco.
My old Oral B toothbrush unit uses round style heads. I have always been happy with these as they do an excellent job of cleaning my teeth and gums. However I was intrigued to find a pack of 4 replacement heads for my new pulsonic,that looked just like a manual toothbrush. I paid £10 for a pack of 4 heads and was really keen to try them out!
The replacement heads come packaged in tough,clear plastic. Each toothbrush head is individually wrapped inside,so you can keep any you don't need clean,whilst storing . The packaging is really awkward to open and you will need scissors! Each toothbrush head has its own little coloured metal ring,so everyone will know their own toothbrush. The rings are easy to put onto the plastic neck of the toothbrush and snap into place. There are 4 colours including yellow,blue,turquoise and pink. The blue and turquoise and a bit too similar as far as I am concerned and I would have preferred another colour such as red.
The bristles are white and 2 tone blue. The blue colour will begin to fade as the brush ages. When the colour is very pale it is time to replace the brush head. I tend to find a brush head lasts for around 3 months.
I really like these elongated style brush heads. They seem to make my teeth feel cleaner than when using the round variant that I have been used to. I find that the elongated shape makes it easier to brush along my gum line too,another bonus!
The pulsonic brush heads are designed to fit all pulsonic Oral B electric toothbrushes.
