Re: Electric toothbrush recommendation?

My dentist recommends the Philips Sonicare. He's no fan of the round Oral-D brushes.

Re: Electric toothbrush recommendation?

I've been using Philips Sonicare for more than 15 years I think and am really happy with it, as is my dentist.


But yes, more and more I choose the basic model, no need for multiple modes that you activate by accident. I'm using the HX6511 now and that's totally adequate, for under 50 Fr.

Re: Electric toothbrush recommendation?

Okay, as background I have really lousy teeth (genetic my dentist tells me as I have a very short root to gum/crown ratio).

I have 3 implants and at least 7 crowns. To put this into perspective, I was the youngest of nine children and dental hygiene was not the foremost on my Mom's mind (Heck she was just trying to keep up with the wash, laundry and grocery shopping - notwithstanding cooking!)

My OH has joked with our kids and said, "If you find your soul mate, ask to see their dental records!" - That is how much money has gone into restoration of my teeth.

And so, my dentist tells me to try the new ORAL B electric toothbrush last year and I do. Fast forward, and my cleaning this summer took only 20 minutes when in previous years it took ages (and lots of blood - despite my flossing).

These electric brushes are a Godsend!

Here is a link to the equivalent to what I purchased in the US:

Hope this helps!

Re: Electric toothbrush recommendation?

Oral-B (Pulsonic) and it worked wonders. I don't need bleaching etc.

Re: Electric toothbrush recommendation?

Do I get two bodies and one charger with this link? I have a discount code that will take CHF10 off from the price.

From the image, it looks like I will get two sets (one charger only)

Lieferumfang
Anzahl Zahnbuerstenkoepfe 2 x (Do they mean the actual main body or just the top brush head?)
Anzahl Ladestationen 1 x

It is two devices, One charging station and two brush heads. (If it's like mine you can also charge in the carry case, with a USB cable)

Only the 9000 series and 7000 series have charging travel cases.

I read it as only two "brush heads".

Re: Electric toothbrush recommendation?


Going for Philips Sonicare 4300s, even cheaper, CHF 109 for 2 (one for my female companion). This is all I need based on the YT reviews comparing it with 5100, 6xxx. It is also on the list of what my dentist recommended.

But the images shows 2 bodies. 4300 vs 4300s maybe CHF109 for just one 4300 would be too expensive otherwise, so I think it must be two bodies, 1 charger and 2 brush heads/top part.

I hope he receives more than dentists that sell Oral-B i.e. the majority.

Re: Electric toothbrush recommendation?

Simply get any Sonicare that has 62'000 brushhead movements per minute, i.e. ultrasonic cleaning (which appears to be the case for anything from the 4300 series upwards, but check the technical details all the same). Beyond this they all take the same brush heads anyway so beyond this you are paying for the details (i.e. various levels of strength, do you get a charging glass, travel charger, app connectivity, etc.).

From what I can see the cheapest one on microspot is currently: https://www.microspot.ch/de/beauty-g...u--p0002301302

This being said: since this is a classic razor / razorblade product. You can also get something with more bells and whistles up front, since the brush heads will end up being more expensive anyway.

This being said not quite sure if the following is good value for money:

Re: Electric toothbrush recommendation?

Just to confirm, yes, there were two 4300s in the package. Has two speed settings. Brushing the inside front upper teeth tickles the hell out of me, oh those good vibrations

Re: Electric toothbrush recommendation?

You get used to the vibrations. You'll learn quickly not to touch the back of the brush head (plastic part) against your teeth - it is not a pleasant sensation.

Re: Electric toothbrush recommendation?

After using Sonicare 4300 for 1+ month, I would say that anyone in the market should go for it. Anything more expensive in my opinion is not worth it unless you have money to burn.
