If you own an electric toothbrush then from time to time you will need to replace the heads on the toothbrush. This is the nice thing about owning an electric toothbrush, once you have the base unit all you have to do is change the brush from time to time.
I have the Boots expert electric toothbrush for when I go away for the weekend and for holidays and so I have had to buy one pack of these extra brushes. I think it's very good value because I have had the toothbrush for about a year and granted, I don't use it everyday but only having to replace these brushes once has been great. The toothbrush came with two heads in the beginning too which was a help.
The toothbrushes have round heads which I prefer to a longer brush head as I think it polishes the teeth nicely and works well with an oscillating function like this toothbrush has. Dentists recommend that you change your toothbrush about every three months and I would have to say that yes, by this time the bristles have gone a bit soft and have fanned out a bit so they are not as effective as they were in the beginning. The brush strength of these brushes is listed as medium so they are fairly firm but not too hard that they make your gums bleed which is nice.
The brush is very easy to change. To remove the existing one from your toothbrush you just turn it anticlockwise and pull it out from the handle. There is a metal lever that keeps it in place inside the toothbrush. Then you just twist the other one on, make sure it is in place and you are good to go. The brushes come with 4 little plastic rings which are different colours. You can put these at the base of the brush unit and they clip on once you have attached the brush in place. These are intended for use if you share the base unit of the toothbrush to identify whose brush is on the unit but I couldn't think of anything worse than sharing a toothbrush with someone, even my husband so I do not use these rings.
A pack of two costs £7.14 at the moment in Boots.
