A nice no frills power tooth brush that’s easy to use and charge

Oral-B has a number of power tooth brush variants and all are very good. Some of the costlier options come with neat features like phone apps that track brushing and all manner of other tooth related activities but I like this one for its simplicity.

This is a straight forward no-frills power brush that gets the job done. Something it shares with the other brushes are the brush heads variants, there are a number of different replacement heads. The action of these heads varies from straight back and forth in a circle to pulsing and bobbing kind of actions. The point is that the variations you can have on this brush make it useful for a wide variety of people and the various situations individuals have with their teeth. There is one standard back and forth action brush included in my package. This is enough to get anyone going and I find the brushes last about as long as a regular stick brush but do a far better job.

Like most other power brushes, it has a signal at the 30 second mark that it’s time to move on. Theory being that you spend 30 seconds on each quarter. It’s a handy thing to have so that I don’t spend too much or too little time on any part of the mouth. The indication is a double temporary interruption pulse in the motor and then it continues on. Some other brushes simply power down after the 2-minute mark, here it keeps going and giving the 30 second pulses.

The main thing is that the brush does a stand-up job of cleaning the gunk and I can say that with using power brushes I spend far less time in a dentist’s chair while an assistant cleans plaque off of my nashers. I also appreciate that with all the action my gums don’t get beat up, something that I was expecting the first time I used one of these 20 some years ago. Oral-B has been making these things for a very long time!

Charging is a breeze with the provided stand. Simply drop the power unit in its charging base and the unit is wirelessly charged, no open contacts means no worries about being electrocuted or contacts that might need cleaning. It takes a few hours for a full charge and I just leave it on the base overnight but then I get over a week’s worth of brushing, usually twice a day.

For practical use I appreciate the silicone outer portions, they allow for a good grip even when wet.
