I have always used those usual cheap toothbrushes and never been totally satisfied. I have tried them all looking for better results and never found them until I found Sonicare Essence Toothbrush. I was hesitant at first because it is a little pricey, but it is worth every penny. My mouth has never been so clean.

My Experience: Using this electric toothbrush has changed my mouth dramatically. My teeth feel cleaner, stays cleaner longer, and my gums look more healthy. I have noticed that when I floss my teeth now that there is less build up. My teeth feel smooth all day. I have noticed my teeth are a lot whiter and I feel more confident in smiling.
Learning Curve: You do have to get use to this toothbrush. The vibrating motion was very surprising and kind of scary at first. I also had to learn to keep my mouth open because when the back of the toothbrush hits your teeth, it doesn't feel to good. Also for some reason I drool a lot more while I brush my teeth, not sure if its because you have to keep your mouth open or what, but just make sure that your over the sink. I also had to get use to the size of the toothbrush, its like four regular toothbrushes put together. The battery inside of the electronic toothbrush adds some weight, you have to use your whole hand now instead of a few fingers like you usually would.
How To Use: Unlike the usual manual toothbrush with this very quiet electronic toothbrush you don't have to do any of the work. All you have to do is move the toothbrush over each tooth and the vibration does the rest. It doesn't hurt to brush your teeth, the only thing that is kind of painful is if you hit the back of the head where the bristles aren't there on your teeth.
Battery: When the battery gets low there is a green light that blinks, then all you have to do is set in on the charger that plugs into the wall. It does take a few hours to fully charge but it last for a week or so. There is a two minute timer that automatically shuts the toothbrush off when the two minutes are up.
Replacing The Heads: You can buy replacement heads at most retail stores. They cost about 30 dollars for two of them. I have had this toothbrush head for 4 months and It looks brand new still (but I haven't tried a new head yet so I am not sure of the difference between a new one and a four month old one). Your suppose to change them out every 6 months, so it can get a little pricey in the long run.
