Face it. Part of being healthy means making sure your mouth is healthy. It’s one of those things that impacts your whole. That being said, can we talk toothbrushes?
I’ve been a manual toothbrush girl for years. Sure, I dabbled in battery operated toothbrushes, but I just didn’t fall in love. So manual brushes have been chilling in my toothbrush holder for years. I diligently replace my brush and haven’t been looking for anything different — I’m happy with my manual toothbrush.
Still, recently I was asked to give the Philips Sonicare PowerUp toothbrush a try and I agreed. (Seriously. Why not?) It’s a battery-operated toothbrush with a head like a manual one — not that far off from what I was already using. And it promises “a month’s worth of brush strokes in a day.” It sounded intriguing.
Setting a high bar there, no?
So I tried it. For a week. Twice a day.
From the first brushing, I could tell that this toothbrush is something special. There’s something about the vibrations of the Philips Sonicare PowerUp toothbrush that just does an amazing job of cleaning teeth. It adds a whole new dimension to the whole brushing experience, leaving teeth feeling smooth and clean.
Even better, the slim toothbrush head fits easily into all the far-reaching areas of the mouth. Every time I finished with my two minutes of brushing, I marveled at how darn clean my mouth felt.
That’s a big thing. And, um, I’ve been converted.
One more thing I love? When the brush gets all used up, you can just replace the head on this brush. Easy peasy. It’s available for less than $20 at stores including Bed, Bath, and Beyond (hint: use a coupon!!).
