Do you like to brush your teeth? No, I don’t think anyone really does. But it is a necessary part of the day to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
I have early peridontel disease and hate to brush because it is uncomfortable.I dread the dentist (gotta have nitrous oxide) and I have yet to find a toothbrush that did the work I needed and was comfortable (AND affordable) . My dentist has been suggesting a professional strength electronic toothbrush for a LONG time but I haven’t taken that jump. Mostly because of the cost of most toothbrushes he suggested. I brush at least four times a day but do not floss as much as I should. I’m willing to put in the work and make sure I brush a lot. I’ve never had any cavities, so I have been successful in that area.
So, you can imagine my relief and level of thanks when I had the opportunity to test the Oral-B Professional Precision 1000 through ModernMom. I was hoping this toothbrush would improve the problems I was having with my gums and teeth. I needed a strong toothbrush and one that would “GET” all the yucky stuff (as the girls say)! The big baby in me was really hoping it wouldn’t hurt and actually be comfortable.
The Plan: I set aside the toothbrush I normally use (a regular old soft bristle toothbrush) and instead used the Oral-B Professional Precision 1000 two times a day following the product instructions for two weeks.
My Opinion: It was so easy to put together and really didn’t take long to charge. I love that is rechargeable (up to 2 WEEKS on a charge) and looks cute on the counter. I had been having some gum pain in the back when the box arrived and almost didn’t want to start using the toothbrush. Thankfully, I did and within a few brushes my gums really felt better. Brushing was not painful and I could feel the rotating, pulsating movements. I was impressed by how clean my teeth actually felt when I ran my tounge over them after each brushing. This toothbrush was GOOD!
I really like that you can buy different brush heads for the Oral-B Professional Precision 1000. They even have one for those with braces, wish I had that when I was a teen.
I have permanently switched to using Oral-B Professional Precision 1000 as my only toothbrush. I’m looking forward to seeing what the dentist says at my next visit. My daughters now want one to match mommy too! Can you say “awesome stocking stuffer!”
