Am thinking of buying one. Is it effective in cleaning ? What brand is good ? How often to change the bristles and anything to take note of ? Thanks.

I use the Oral B electronic toothbrush, very satisfied with it, which ever brand you buy make sure it got some good motor installed (e.g Braun).
Change bristles about once in 4-5 months...bristles cost about $20(3 pieces) while the toothbrush itself cost around $35

I'm a convert. It cleans much better than normal brushing. the teeth feels much much cleaner especially around the area near the gums where plaque tends to accumulate even with normal brushing.

The replacement brush heads are not cheap though but definitely worth it.

I started with the circular action round brush heads:


now changed to double action heads:


the double action heads feels more like the standard toothbrush because of the larger brush contact area. It cleans better because of the combined circular and up-down action.

Braun is good and lasting. Last one I changed, used for 5 years, not the brush head of course.
Present one is also Braun.

Am thinking of buying one. Is it effective in cleaning ? What brand is good ? How often to change the bristles and anything to take note of ? Thanks.

i will advise consulting the dentist first if using for a 2 yr old though....their gums may be abit more fragile and may bleed easily. There may be electrical toothbrush just for kids...i'm not sure...uou may want to check cool.gif

The lazy part about brushing your teeth is to shift and brush other teeth.

Wa, u all too pamper your kids liao. Ma chiam making them lazy by using all automated equipments.biggrin.gif My personal take is that it is a matter of teaching. Kids are very intelligent, I'm sure they will learn not to bite the toothbrush in the end!

haha that's what i worry too...

his argument is that the toothbrush have fix duration of brush once we turn it on, so we will follow the duration.

but i think when we are short of time, we can still switch it off even if full duration not over yet.
laugh.gif

and i think it would have been better if they design something that lets me spit out the toothpaste and foam after brushing while i am seated at my sofa reading newspapers laugh.gif

yes.....

say you can do up-down stroke manually 20 times in 10 secs.
In the same 10 secs. the eletrical toothbrush head would have swept the same area 100 times or more wink.gif

ok.... lazy to type so cut and past:

Features Of A Power Toothbrush

Simply stated, rechargeable electric toothbrushes (or power toothbrushes) provide superior plaque removal to regular manual toothbrushes. And because they provide the brushing action for you, many people find using power toothbrushes easier than using regular manual ones. Additionally, with so many different types and features available, its easy to find one that suits your specific oral health needs.
Superior Plaque Removal

According to a 2005 independent study, Brushes that worked with a rotation oscillation action removed more plaque and reduced gingivitis more effectively than manual brushes in the short and long-term... No other powered brush designs were consistently superior..."* Oral-B pioneered this oscillating-pulsating and cupping power technology in 1991 and has incorporated it into its premium power toothbrush range ever since. Recently, it has also incorporated oscillating-rotating technology into entry tier (lower cost) options, like Oral-B Vitality.

* Robinson PG, et al., Manual versus powered toothbrushing for oral health, The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2005; Issue 2. This study did not endorse, and is not affiliated with, Oral-B products.
Ease of Use

Whereas you have to move a regular manual toothbrush back and forth along your teeth, power toothbrushes provide the cleaning action for you. That means you need only guide it along the surfaces of your teeth. Once they get the hang of it, many people find this method of brushing easier. Likewise, people with arthritis or other similar conditions may find using a power toothbrush less painful. Power toothbrushes may also help kids brush their teeth more effectively, but sure to check the age recommendations on an electric toothbrush before letting your child use it.
Technology and Features

Generally rich in technology and features, some power toothbrushes can even enable you to improve your brushing habits. And most come with convenient features like a brush head or toothbrush holder, bathroom-counter storage units and travel toothbrush chargers. Hi-tech features may include:

* Numerous brushing modes specialized for sensitive teeth, whitening benefits or gum-massaging action
* Pressure sensors to signal when youre brushing too hard
* Timers to help you keep track of how long youre brushing each quadrant of your mouth
* Digital reminders to replace your brush head
* Oscillating-pulsating and cupping, oscillating-rotating or sonic technology
* Multiple brush head compatibility so you can choose which kind of bristle design you prefer
