I must confess....I HATE THE DENTIST! I hate everything that goes along with the dentist! I hate the drilling, the scraping, the "oops I drilled too far and now you need a root canal, sorry!" Needless to say, I generally HATE everything to do with it all! Enter my new BFF~....the Oral-B Professional Precision 5000.
I have always brushed my teeth 2 times a day (flossing is another story, though). But this toothbrush is really the Cadillac of all toothbrushes. I feel like a rockstar with my fancy pants toothbrush. It has a wireless Smart Guide that gives you real-time feedback on your brushing. (If your brushing too hard, it turns red and makes a frowny face). One of my favorite features is that it does a special vibrate at the end of every 30 seconds (1 vibrate after the first, 2 after the second, etc) so you know how long you have brushed and how much more you have to go. I think it makes my 2 minutes go by super fast!
This one doesn't just vibrate, it pulsates to break up plaque and oscillates and rotates to sweep plaque away With up to 50% more brush movements than leading sonic technology. This is rechargeable too and each charge lasts a little over a week. The toothbrush is really strong and powerful right off the charger, and after a week, you will want to throw it back on to get that super power clean.
This has gotten my teeth SO much cleaner since I have used it for a little over 2 weeks (2 times a day). I can feel the difference! (Maybe I can ditch the dentist all together now! LOL!)

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Modern Mom on behalf of Oral-B and received a product sample to facilitate my review...BUT ALL OPINIONS....and scary DENTIST stories (yeah, the one about him drilling too far and needing a root canal is true) are MY OWN.....!
