Man, I sure am creative with my titles huh? Do you guys use a regular toothbrush or do y’all have a battery operated one like this Oral B Deep Sweep? I have always used a regular ol’ toothbrush so I was actually excited to try this out. I wasn’t sure what to expect really. I have pretty sensitive teeth because they are so bad. Dentists are expensive you know? My grandmother had dentures by 40 so who knows, I could be on that same path. One thing I can do now is brush & floss.
When I received the Oral B Sweep, it was pretty simple to setup. You simply snap the brush head in place and charge. So let me be clear here, I have NEVER used anything like this. I’m sure you can imagine my somewhat surprised reaction when I turned on and began to brush. There was obviously lots of vibration as I went all over my teeth and gums. At one point, I took it out to spit, only to have toothpaste all over my glasses, mirror, and shirt. I guess it would have been smart to turn it off before spitting and then turning it back on to finish. But no, not me. After all was said and done, I felt like I had come out of the dentist office with a full blown cleaning. My teeth looked clean, my mouth felt clean, and I could absolutely tell a major difference in using this vs a manual toothbrush. I really really like it and will continue to use it my home.
