Final Thoughts

A budget Oral-B toothbrush but is it worth buying? It cleans well as long as you don't mind the feeling of a drill inside your head.

I bought this toothbrush as my dentist recommends Oral B toothbrushes above other brands and Amazon was offering this as a nearly half-price electric toothbrush.   I was impressed to see that on Amazon it had 19,000 reviews and many of which were 4 or 5 stars.  How could I go wrong?  A budget Oral-B toothbrush with the promise of a powerful clean sounded like a brilliant buy.

My lightweight budget Colgate toothbrush and my ancient Phillips electric toothbrush I thought were inferior models to this.  Boasting a powerful motor for a budget toothbrush, and a cross-action head to ensure good cleaning, I assumed it would be a good buy.

Was I right?  Well, I’ve learnt a couple of things.

Firstly, Amazon reviews are not always to be trusted  and  secondly I obviously have higher standards than the majority of reviewers!  I am clearly used to quieter and gentler toothbrushes.  When I first turned it on I thought there was a fault with it, the engine seemed so noisy.  So maybe it would quieten down when it’s actually cleaning my teeth?  No, sadly not.  It felt like I was in the dentist’s chair.  Someone was driving a motorbike through my skull.  Not what I wanted just before bedtime, especially.  This was the noisiest toothbrush I had ever tried –  my husband could even hear the toothbrush from downstairs.

Yes, my teeth were clean but it wasn’t an enjoyable experience. For me, sadly this was £27.99 wasted – I’m not using it again and am going back to my little Colgate friend.
