I tried th sonicare essence before this. I think this oral-b whitens the teeth better. That's just me.

This and the top end sonicare are both great products. both a little different. I prefer this over the sonicare, but cant justify one being better than the other. oral b has a rotating oscillating movement and sonicare has studies that it breaks up soft plaque even beyond where the brush reaches. I have seen gum recession which I think has something to do with sonicare, but no real evidence. In my office i sell oral b for $100. no sonicare mostly because i don't want to stock 2 products. NO TOOTHBRUSH REPLACES FLOSSING, and yes your dentist does know if you dont floss

I've been a sonicare user for several years now but its battery recently died. Now considering oral b as a replacement. Here's what I found so far on the sonicare vs braun oral-b toothbrush efficacy on pubmed.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12666948

There are other journal articles comparing the two technologies and most of them say that the braun oral-b oscillating toothbrush is significantly better than the sonicare in terms of dental scores and what not.

I never thought pubmed would be useful for comparison shopping. Haha. I think I would go with the oral b one.

Btw, I just found out that dental students can buy this (with included crest products) for only $45 at the crest professional website (dentalcare.com). Wish I am still near my friends who go to dental school.

Our dentist noticed our daughter has signs of receeding gums due to brushing too hard. Dentist recommended the Oral b over the Sonicare because Oral b feature stops pulsations when brushing too hard.

The P&G eStore has the "gingivitis regimen with smartseries 5000" in-stock and on sale for $100. You can use the 15% off coupon (A9Z-MN5-KY3-ISA, not sure when this expires) to bring down the price. This combo also includes other crest products.

My dentist sells this kind of toothbrush. So it must be good. Also when you do a cleaning at the dentist, they use a similar brush.

Does this work with the clean precision 1000? That would make that toothbrush about $20.
