Summary: I am not a drooler but I remove the brush section after every use and spray peroxide and collect whatever grime (toothpaste, saliva) is inside and also collects in the grooves on the side of the handle. I even tried brushing sideways but the product always has grime inside. When I can, I'll upgrade to the Diamond model. In the interim, other than that issue, I have and will continue to use Sonicare products.
This product does a great job of cleaning my teeth & gums.

Summary: This product replaces one that I purchased from my former dentist over 10 years ago. It surpasses that product and is easy to maintain and find replacement heads for extended use. I strongly recommend it.
Summary: Went with sonicare several years ago! Great check ups and clean feeling, loved it but kind of wore it out. I (mistakenly) took hygenists advice and bought oral b to replace it. My teeth never felt as clean with the oral b and at first checkup had to get the intensive and expensive below the gumline cleaning (scaling and root planing) for the first time ever. I recently purchased another sonicare! The way it cleans is incredible.
Summary: I have used a Sonicare for almost as long as they have been manufactured and I love it. My old one was essentially the same as the Essence is now. I wanted the Diamond Care with the Ultra Violet light but was not able to afford it. This Easy Clean was a good compromise.
