REVIEW - Electric Toothbrush on Trial

I'm taking part in the 21 day blogger challenge testing out the Oral B Triumph with Smart Guide 5000 electric toothbrush. This really is the daddy of electric toothbrushes sitting at the very top of the range, which also makes it one of the most recommended toothbrushes by dentists.

I recently bought my first electric toothbrush which sat right at the other end of the scale; a bargain in the sale at £15. I'm really interested to see how this one compares especially as it is ten times the price, so I'll be doing a review back here in a few weeks. I'm really inspired to get a whiter, brighter smile, especially after seeing all the celeb photos from the Golden Globes today! Thanks to Oral B for sending this over and let's see if I get any compliments on my lovely teeth this week...

My verdict:

I've been using this toothbrush now for about a month and I have to say I couldn't go back. On the one or two occasions that I've used my old toothbrush the feeling just isn't the same and I find that half way through the day I want to brush my teeth again. I also noticed how the bristles of a conventional toothbrush actually irritate the gums.

The toothbrush is really easy to use and the wireless screen makes sure you've been brushing evenly and for the right amount of time. You just stick it straight onto the tiles in your bathroom, easy! The toothbrush also comes with several different heads aimed at everything your teeth and gums might need from massaging the gums to a deep clean.

Overall I'm really impressed, but would I spend £160 on a toothbrush? Probably not. That said, I'd certainly not go back to a non-electric toothbrush now. They just don't offer anywhere near the same level of cleanliness as this product does.

I'm quite looking forward to going back to my dentist now (now there's a crazy thought), last time I was there she asked if I used an electric toothbrush and I said no. It will be interesting to see if she can tell the difference.

Top benefits:
  • A dentist clean feeling
  • Great at removing stains
  • Removes plaque
  • Improves gum health
