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.
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.
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.
