Summary: I came from an electric Oral-B. The clean itself is on par, but more satisfying than the electric. The bristles on the heads last an awful lot longer than the Oral-B heads, plus the battery lasts around a month and hasn't degraded like it invariably does on the Oral-B's!!! I am a convert and won't be looking back!
Fantastic Toothbrush- wish I bought one years ago.

Summary: I bought this from Amazon two months ago and used it at least twice a day since it arrived. It has absolutely changed my life- I am actually excited for my dentist appointment in October! I have always had good teeth but over the last few years I have had a few problems with bleeding gums and plaque build up despite regular brushing, flossing and mouthwash. You can immediately feel the difference when brushing with this brush. It is like a trip to the hygienist!

Summary: Over the last few years, I've had two of these models and they share one thing in common - they just don't last. Whilst they have proven effective at keeping my teeth clean, they appear to be so poorly manufactured that they either fail completely or you end up having to buy replacement cable leads, or the battery just dies. My last one, and the final straw for me, seems to like having the toothbrush heads fall off mid cleaning!
Summary: I used a Braun £30 electric toothbrush before but was struggling with plaque on teeth and bad breath. At first my mouth took a while to get used to this brush, with ulcers (possibly as I was brushing longer than the timer allows on the whitening setting) however I persevered and now I how no more problems with ulcers. My teeth feel very clean, almost as if I have been to the hygienist, and my previous problems with bad breath have disappeared.
Summary: Having used an Oral B toothbrush for years I was going to buy a replacement toothbrush until I read all the reviews about Philips ones. I am so pleased that I bought one as this is a brilliant toothbrush. My teeth feel so much cleaner after using it and it is also very good at gettting tea and red wine stained teeth white again. I would definitely recommend trying a Philips.
Summary: This is my 2nd Sonicare - the results are amazing and I would never go back to the other well-known brand! It does feel different in that this vibrates rather than rotates and you do need to keep your mouth closed around the brush if you don't want your mirror sprayed ... but all that is well worth it for the results. With the other type, I could still see the faint grey lines appearing down the edges of my teeth ... these are a thing of the past.
