Even a no-frills electric toothbrush is more effective at removing plaque and improving gingival health than a manual brush while both are better than sugarless gum, regardless of 4 out of 5 dentists' testimonials. A good example is the Sonicare Essence+. It offers fewer bells and whistles than the Philips Sonicare Essence -- no travel case, one less brush head, and the battery doesn't hold a charge for as long. As a result, the Essence+ is less expensive, but it is unclear where the "plus" comes in. It's the same brush with its rubber grip, a SimplyClean Standard brush head, a Smartimer -- to help meet the dentist-recommended 2 minutes of brushing -- and a battery light indicator. The EasyStart feature adjusts the power level of the brush over the first 14 uses to help ease the transition from a manual toothbrush.
This tooth brush stops the build up of plaque and bacteria on your teeth that cause tooth decay.
It is easy to use. I saw the difference the first time I used it.
I have to say, I was very disappointed in the Sonicare Essence+. The only thing the vibration did was make my tongue and lips tickle.
