Oral B Indicator
Advantages: Clever way of telling you to change your brush
Disadvantages: Gimmicky for some maybe?
Oral B is a brand I really know and trust in toothbrushes and I have personally bought and used many Oral B toothbrushes over the years and our little lad uses one at the moment. This particualr one I really like as I think it is really very clever and not too expensive. My other half thinks its a bit gimmicky, but I personally do not agree.
I have used this particular type of toothbrush before mainly because you are supposed to change your toothbrush fairly regularly to maintain good dental hygiene, I have read about once every three months. I tend to forget or lose track of how long I have had it for and for this reason I thought this Oral B Indicator would be a good idea as it keeps me on my toes, so to speak!
The idea is simple but clever. The toothbrush head is white and long and slim and the one I have has medium textured bristles (but you can get them either hard or soft). There is a blue line of bristles on this brush head which runs side to side. Once you have almost worn the brush out you will gradually see the blue part of the bristle changing and fading in colour until eventually it becomes white, then you know it is time you need to change your brush for a new one. Clever!
The handle is long and slim and allows for a really good grip and also the head itself is long but slim at the same time, and this allows me to be able to reach right at the back of the mouth to get to areas which can often get missed.
I really do recommend this brush - I think it is great value for money and worth the three pounds price tag.
