I remember as a kid, like in the 90′s, we had one of those old school electric toothbrushes. It was nasty and strange. The darn thing vibrated my head so bad that it made me sneeze, get a runny nose and watery eyes. I’ve never really been a fan of putting a motorized device in my mouth, not at home and not at the dentist.
I hated using that darn manual toothbrush with a passion but my mom hounded us each night and forced us to use it. The torture!
So, you can imagine my joy when my husband got his Oral-B Professional Care SmartSeries 5000 Toothbrush in the mail several months back. I was super relieved that it only came with the one toothbrush head and I tormented him about using it. I believe the words “good luck” and “have fun with that” were used. Eventually, after his rave reviews over it I agreed to give it a try and he bought some extra toothbrush heads for us.
A decade apparently leaves much room for technological advancement because this electric toothbrush isn’t nearly as bad as I remember the torture device of my childhood being. The electric toothbrush jackhammer effect is still noticeable when you press hard while brushing but I feel like it’s not nearly as dramatic and terrible as I remember from my childhood.
The Oral-B Professional Care SmartSeries 5000 Toothbrush, in comparison with a manual brush, DOES seem to remove more junk from my teeth and leaves them feeling dental office polished which makes it feel worth all the “good vibrations”.
