Every 30 seconds the toothbrush also vibrates, reminding you to switch to a different quadrant of your mouth for brushing. The toothbrush guides you to make sure you are getting each section cleaned well. One of the obvious benefits of having an electric toothbrush is that you can change the brush heads and the handle can be re-used. When it is time to replace your brush head, the bristles will fade half way. I always have a hard time knowing when to toss my toothbrush so I can appreciate the reminder. This is recommended for a better clean and to also prevent any germs that may linger around your toothbrush over time. I also noticed that in the manual it states you can use a variety of Oral B brush heads with this model.
After using the Oral B Precision 1000 for two weeks, there is not one manual toothbrush left in my bathroom. It was love at first brush and my teeth have never felt so clean. Even though it provides a more vigorous cleaning, this electric toothbrush did not leave my teeth or gums irritated. I also noticed a huge difference in how white my teeth looked. Using the Crest 3D White Toothpaste like I normally do, the Oral B toothbrush made a visible difference in the overall color and brightness of my smile. I would recommend this product to anyone who is skeptical on making the switch from manual to electric. The experience was beyond pleasant and I highly doubt I will ever go back to the standard toothbrush.
