I have used the Oral B 1000 for a couple of years now and can tell you this thing is a really good toothbrush. It cleans NEARLY as well as my much more expensive Sonicare. Replacement heads can be purchased at many locations and like the main unit, work nearly as well and cost much less than the Sonicare. Generic replacement heads are available too at Walmart and Meijer I believe. However, the generic replacement heads do not fit quite as well and make significantly more noise than the Oral B heads. The toothbrush “pulses” its vibrations twice after each ~30 seconds to let you know that one quarter of your 2-minutes has elapsed. At the end of the 2-minute cycle, the unit “pulses” three times to let you know that the cycle is over. It will continue to run after that.
We also include links to the various brush heads so that you can be sure you’re choosing the right one, and there’s a detailed video below that we’ve created that explains the role of each brush head.
Are there intra-psychic barriers—i.e., does the patient not believe they are able to complete the suggestion or the plan they have helped to develop, and thus, does the provider need to first address the patient’s self-efficacy?
For kids under two years old, I’ve found The Radius Totz to be the best toothbrush. It’s an effective and safe brush made with recycled BPA-free plastic; it’s also great for little hands and for massaging the gums. Skip the baby rattles on the baby registry and ask for a Radius Totz instead.

Loved them, I purchased a knockoff no name brand that was supposed to be compatible to braun. The head would get caught and stop spinning, I could hear the toothbrush spinning but the brush was not. Other times I couldn’t even get the other brush off. What a nightmare. I went ahead and sprung for the genuine original Oral-B brushes and WOW what a difference. I will always use these going forward.

My old Oral-B electric toothbrush died finally after all those years together. This new one works just fine, I just don’t need all the bells and whistles. I have been brushing my teeth all my life so don’t need to be told when to move to a new quadrant, I don’t need to be told by a toothbrush that I’m brushing too hard (I just hold the damn thing in place and it does the brushing, no pressure involved because I’m lazy). I don’t need all those alarms and don’t know what they mean, I’d turn them all off if I could figure out how. I don’t need the case or that view screen thingy–to me, it’s all just a waste and I can’t fathom what type of challenged person needs this much guidance just to brush their teeth (it’s too heavy and big for

Oral-B’s website doesn’t display brush head prices (MSRP’s). So as a proxy for price, we’ve picked out a major brick-and-mortar retailer that also has an online presence that sells each type of Oral-B’s brush heads (that alone was a little difficult to find), and used their online prices as our basis of comparison.
Waterik is the undisputed champion when it comes to water flossers. But, not too many people know that they also make a pretty good electric toothbrush. Perhaps, they got tired of the never-ending argument about flossing vs brushing and decided to dominate both sides.

Often people struggle with knowing how hard or how soft to brush their teeth. If they brush too hard they may begin to experience gum recession and stress on their enamel. If they brush too softly they may not be thoroughly cleaning their teeth, leading to plaque buildup and tooth decay. Electric toothbrushes help prevent these problems because they do all the work for you!
– Replaceable battery vs. rechargeable; most electric toothbrush batteries end up going out completely after a year or two. I didn’t want to deal with having to dock my toothbrush and worrying about the impending doom regarding the charge going out, so I decided to get the AA-powered model that was cheaper. I instead am using recharegable AA batteries.

For Natasha, like millions, loved the fresh, smooth feeling a blast with a powerful electric toothbrush gave her. So much so, that she wore away the protective layer of her tooth enamel, and exposed the sensitive root, with inevitable, painful consequences.
