A good product, but high priced (to my evaluation).  Many dentists and
hygienists really like it a lot.  I, personally, feel any powered brush is
going to give comparable results.

The best brush is always the one which stays in your mouth for the longest
time at each brushing.

I couldn't agree more Doc.  The best toothbrush is the one being used......
with modified bass technique ofcourse!

No bad experience, although I get real tired of accidentally
spattering toothpaste over things including myself. It seems to make
some difference in my plaque development, but that theory will get
tested when I make my six-month dental visit in a few weeks.
Hopefully, it's also exposing my gums to less abuse, since I don't
seem aware of how hard I brush manually.

I know this may sound simplistic, but it will really help if you don't turn it
on until your lips are around it in your mouth.  Then after using it, turn it
off before removing it from your mouth.  :)

I use a Sonicare toothbrush myself, per my dentist's recommendation.  I
found, on the other hand, it was not helpful with my son.
Even with the ultra-compact head, the brush is too big to fit in a small
mouth, and we were missing spots.
   We switched to {*filter*}sonic, which has a much better shape for a small
mouth.  It works on the same principle, but the brushes are much cheaper.
Whether or not
rotating at such a high speed is actually effective, is debatable, according
to the professionals who participate on this newsgroup.
     The problem with the {*filter*}sonic, on the other hand, is that the whole
handle buzzes and vibrates, which is annoying.  And who knows how long this
company will last.
   The Braun electric toothbrushes also have a nice shape for a small mouth.
They now make one that has the same high speed  of rotations as the
Sonicare.  I think this might be the best, if there is any truth to the
"sonic cleaning" claims.  I would have bought this instead of  the
{*filter*}sonic, if it had been available at the two places I looked.
  The Sonicare can also have a problem with stuff growing on it.  Some
dentists don't recommend it because of this. Once again, it is because if
the shape.
   If you look at epinions.com, some guy claims he never had a cavity until
he used a Sonicare.  I think it probably did not fit into his mouth well.
  Any of these is probably better for you gums, if you have a tendency to
overbrush, like I do.  Good luck,

Alex Maas

Well, the instructions say to close your mouth around it, but I can't
imagine how you're supposed -- for instance -- to get the brush head
between your lips and teeth to clean the lip-side surfaces of your
front teeth. And I can't reach lots of other areas of my mouth without
opening my lips either. Just ain't practical! So I spatter. :-)

Actually, it's a little more complicated than that. The morons who
designed the thing, put in a little circuitry to automatically turn it
off after 2 minutes. What's with this? Do they think I'm too stupid to
turn it off myself? So every once in awhile, it turns itselt off just
as I am finishing and I, thinking I am turning it of, actually turn it
back on, and splatter junk all over everywhere. I'd love to get my
hands on the idiot who invented that little feature.

You must be neater than I am. The mirror is the least of what gets
spattered in my bathroom!

Actually, this feature almost forces the user to brush for an entire 2
minutes, as recomended by dental professionals.  Most people don't, and
without this feature, most would brush for 30 seconds or 1 minute and stop.

 It sounds VERY believable to me!  I am a patient.  I have been using an
electric toothbrush for decades, since they first came out.  I get consistent
good reports from my dentist on my own {*filter*}hygiene.

However, I didn't know that my electric toothbrush (not a Sonicare btw) has a
timer on it.  Surprise, surprise!  I watched the clock as I brushed and
discovered that it DOES have a two minute timer.  I just never used it that
full two minutes!  I suspect I was using it maybe a minute to a minute and a
half, but had NEVER triggered the timer that I didn't realize was there
already.

I am now using it the full two minutes.  :)

If you're not brushing for 2 minutes, your dentist has a "bridge" to sell
you at some point.  ;)
