What is up guys, Holly Olson here and today we’re going to be reviewing some of the most popular electric toothbrushes on the market to see if they’re more effective than Manual Toothbrush.
So I have been one of the biggest advocates of electrical toothbrushes out there and have seen some pretty incredible results for my patients on oral dental. But being the hypocrite that I am, I have been using a regular toothbrush for most of my life. So I decided to practice what I preach. I contacted my local Sonicare and Oral B representatives to see if they could deliver some of the most premium electric toothbrushes that they have. And Philips Sonicare delivered by giving me one of the most premium products: The Sonicare diamond clean. The Oral B told me to buy my own toothbrush. So I did. But instead of opting for the most premium oral B product, I’ve got the oral B 1000 a little bit more in my budget. Now I know that in this review there’s a premium product from Philips Sonicare in the more baseline product from Oral B.
And of course there are plenty of other brushes on the market, but my patients have been asking me about the difference between Sonicare and Oral B, so I’m going to stick to those two popular brands. So let’s get started.
Sonicare VS. Oral-B, which power toothbrush is better??
The main difference between these two has to be the toothbrush head design. The Sonicare offers the very familiar oval-shaped design that looks similar to the brushes I been so accustomed to. They cleaned that their diamond shape bristles is highly effective with stain removal. The brush heads have blue bristles that fade to white, which is meant to serve as a reminder to replace your toothbrush head up over time. I absolutely love this feature because sometimes I forget to replace my toothbrushes as they get worn down or ob. On the other hand, it shocks us with the unconventional round toothbrush head design.
Oral B claims that this small head design can provide for a better tooth by tooth cleaning.
The bristles of the brush have a crisscross pattern in our angle that 16 degrees to give what they claim to be a superior cleaning. The bristles of this brush feed just like the Sonicare and they claim that this brush removes 300% more plaque than the regular toothbrush. I actually love this design. I believe the small circular shape head forces me to brush my teeth one tooth at a time, which would be way more beneficial in the long run.
The next thing difference we have to talk about involves the mechanism of movement each brushing uses in their design. The Sonicare uses a core technology, high frequency, high amplitude brushing movements. In fact, they claim that they are performing over 31,000 brushstrokes per minute. Oral B, on the other hand, uses a rotating oscillatory movement to clean teeth. So I’m actually kind of curious to see how this fields in the mouth.
Sonicare felt very familiar when I was brushing my teeth. The toothbrush had design is similar to that of the regular toothbrush that I’ve been using most of my life. The vibrations give you a tingling sensation in your gums, which feels strange, but something that I could definitely get used to. The oral B, on the other hand, is a completely different beast. The round head and the counter oscillatory movements felt strange in my mouth, but it also felt as though I was getting a deeper cleaning because I was forced to go one tooth at a time. So they were different experiences. Oral B, and if you turn it on, it’s really loud. The Sonicare is loud, but it’s reasonable. So there’s a difference, but the difference really isn’t that noticeable unless you’re making a video on it.
SONICARE vs ORAL-B which one should YOU buy?
Another excellent feature is an indicator like mentioning whether you are brushing too hard in the fact that you may need to lay off the grip strength. This represents the most baseline model of the oral B. It has a pressure sensor and only one cleaning mode, but the most premium version of this oral B product offers almost everything that the Philips Sonicare offers.
The differences between the most premium products are really not that noticeable, but everything I’ve stated in my opinion, in my opinion alone, in September of 2017 the 88 recognize the oral B line of electric toothbrushes as having the Ada seal of approval. That’s a seal that you see on the back of toothpaste in the back of toothbrushes that the American Dental Association supports. I hope this review helps you get a better understanding about some of these premium products out there on the market. I do believe electric toothbrushes are more effective than the regular manual toothbrush. And I’m excited to start cleaning my teeth morning and night, two minutes a day — first thing you do in the last thing you do at night for the rest of my life.
