I have used both the Sonicare and Oral B electric style toothbrushes, obviously as well as a manual brush, and since some troll was harping about science I'll add that I'm a Materials Scientist. Been using these since they came out, the $30 and $200 ones are the same technology for brushing.

Oral B is superior for removing plaque. Sonicare is quicker at removing debris. So if you tend to leave food on your teeth longer or eat sugar a lot, get the Oral B. Sonicare doesn't suit me.

The difference technically is that Sonicare literally vibrates the brush stem, Oral B uses a mechanism that swipes the brush back and forth very fast. From a materials science perspective what you're doing when you brush is polishing your teeth - you're very lightly abrading the surface of your teeth with something harder (hopefully) than the debris but softer (hopefully) than your enamel. The trick to polishing if you've ever done it is to repeatedly polish the area you want clean because pushing harder doesn't help much - you need repetition. You don't want to use something highly abrasive because it will do damage. That is how Oral B works, it move the bristles over your teeth with a light abrasive (toothpaste). Sonicare just vibrates the area, it really doesn't polish. But in both cases I recommend holding the toothbrush barely against your teeth with light pressure - pressing hard will only decrease the speed of the bristles hitting your teeth.

Anyway, you simply cannot match the electric toothbrush with a manual one, it WILL remove more plaque because it will run the bristles over your teeth more times than you can. There's your science.

The only downside is one shared with manual brushes - the access between teeth is very limited, so it is NOT a replacement for flossing and if you do not floss you will notice the plaque inbetween your teeth that the electric brush misses. If only there was an electric floss like the toothbrush...

Oh and I buy the Oral B heads from Costco, however I found some cheap chinese ones on Amazon that turned out great - they are actually harder, as some have mentioned, but for me that works because I like the slightly more abrasive bristles, they speed up brushing. They also seem to last a long time since they're hard.

This is the same as $200 models. The only difference is that the $200 models have multiple brushing patterns, led screens, and Bluetooth connectivity which I find useless.

Was able to use a coupon for the black one and another coupon for the white one (so I could purchase 2). Total for two was $63.98 with tax. Thanks OP!

Replacement heads are a crapshoot. Look for units made in Germany.

Not trying to threadcrap but how is this better than a normal and bigger regular toothbrush. This is not one of the fancy $200 electric toothbrushes so what's so special about it? I'm missing something I guess, or everybody is too lazy to brush their teeth the old fashioned way.

I dont do dentists often do always brush well.... but last time I went she said "you use an electric brush"... I asked how she knew and she said because my teeth were so clean.

That was after 2 months of using a Phillips 20 dollar brush.
