We LOVE our Sonicare toothbrushes! I have always heard great reviews of the Sonicare toothbrush. I have even had dentists, orthodontists, and periodontists recommend it to me (and my kids). I wanted one but just wasn't willing to spend that much money on a toothbrush! But when Target had a sale AND I had a coupon AND there was a rebate I took advantage of it! Now all four of us have our own Sonicare toothbrushes! We love them! They have been worth every penny and more! We just went for our six month dental cleaning after only using them for one month and received rave reviews on our dental care! (My son told the dentist he has a "secret tool"!) There is a timer (once you turn it on, it goes for two minutes and then automatically turns off) to be sure you actually brush long enough - big plus! But the biggest plus:
There was a visible difference in my son's teeth after one day!
There was a visible difference in my husband's teeth after two days!
There was a visible difference in my teeth and my daughter's teeth after just one week!
(Yes, that is a lot of exclamation marks - but, WOW! We LOVE our toothbrushes!)
Now let me warn you, as the instructions did: The first time you use it, it really tickles and is uncomfortable - your gums and lips get all tingly. You want to stop before the two minute timer is done. That is okay. The next time you use it, it is much better - you at least know what to expect. By the second full day of using the Sonicare, you notice the "tinglies" but it is not an issue. After that, it is all just routine and completely comfortable.
Oh, another warning: make sure you keep your lips closed unless you want beautiful splatters all over your bathroom! :)
