For those of you who own electric toothbrush, would you say that they are worth the money? A lot of the quality ones are expensive, are they that much better than a regular manual toothbrush?

This question leads into another one: What electric toothbrush can you recommend me? I'm looking for a cheap/quality electric toothbrush under $40 if possible. I saw a 2-pack Soniccare e770 or something at sam's club for $50 but the heads don't look like they can give me the ultimate clean.

Absolutely! They are better... I didn't believe it at first but my dentist persuaded me to buy one. Prior to using the electric one I had issues with irritating constantly my gums when brushing. With the electrical brush there have been no such issues!

I use Sonicare regular: It's around $80-100. The first one lasted about 3 years before the motor died. Then I bought another of the same model, and it's still running on its 3rd/4th year or so. The bristles -- get the normal size, not the shorter ones: You replace them every 4-5-6 months or so.

80$-100$ for a toothbrush? Forget it, i'd buy a racket instead!

I've tried them, and just didn't like it. The main reason is because it tickled too much - I couldn't stand it but for just a few seconds!

Soniccare is really good. The first time you use it, your teeth will feel cleaner than they've ever felt before.

I don't think spending 80 bucks on your teeth should seem like a tremendous expenditure. God knows we waste money on more trivial matters (such as that extra tennis racquet, above poster).

I've used Soniccare since they first came out. My dentist was wowed by my teeth. He really wouldn't shut up about them.

if you're gonna spend money on your teeth, forget the sonicare and go with veneers only 600 a tooth, :)

It costs a lot more than $80 to get dental work done. When I switched to electric I started getting compliments every time I went to the dentist.

I have used a Braun electric toothbrush since I was 4yrs old (I am 29). They are well worth the money and the results speak for themselves. I have never required any dental treatment except for minor cleaning. My two brothers also use them and are the same. I recently introduced my wife to them and dentist commented on the dramatic improvement since her last visit in tartar and placque levels, even given her good teeth beforehand.

your a freak! > JK

try the Braun ORAL B Vitality dual clean...its $27 maybe cheaper / if you end up liking it I suggest going Hi End ($100 models)

I have the sonicare brand A series I think...they are awesome...I just dont like the mess it makes when Im infront of the mirror (when my mouth is open it sprays)
I also have the Oral B 3d Excel (round spin brush) doesnt make a mess at all -its just noisy vs the sonicare - both of them do the job well...drawback is that the sonicare refill brushes costs much more

Electric toothbrushes are great; they really help get rid of plaque on your teeth. You can of course, get rid of them through normal brushing, but it takes a lot of effort and time in comparison to using an electric toothprush for a bit.

I use soniccare.

I use a Sonicare and a Rota-Dent. Both are excellent. Your teeth are worth the money.

100% True. Thats exactly what I felt after I used Sonicare as well. The best 100 dollars I have ever spent.

Sonicare baby, its worth it if you ask me, makes you feel fresh, and when your smiling at that ace on your opponent people are gonna go "WOW!"

After buying the electric, brushing with a regular toothbrush feels like brushing with my finger. It's practically a waste of time.

Electrics suck. Well at least cheap ones.

^^^some cheap ones are ok and some just suck. once i had this oral b one and i was scared to brush my teeth with it because it would snag my lip under the brush head, almost about every time...lol, i soon got a different model.
