I was contacted to review the Oral B Professional Deep Sweep electric toothbrush. I've been an electric toothbrush user for years, so I was curious to see what the Deep Sweep had to offer versus my current brand which was recommended by my dentist. First, the brush was easy to assemble and charged quickly. It has a slim feature, and fits nicely on my counter without taking up much space.
This little baby packs a lot of power too. It has a larger head than my current brush and the bristles are stiffer. During the initial use, I did have difficulty maneuvering the brush around my mouth because of the larger head. I've gotten used to it now, so it's quite easy for me to use. There's little spatter with this brush. A lot of electric brushes sent the toothpaste everywhere when your brushing, not the Oral B. This model has a few cool features. The bristles fade when it's time to change the head. I love this, you don't have to guess. It also pulsates if you're putting too much pressure on the brush. This is a great feature, you won't up end with sore or bleeding gums if you have sensitive teeth. My current model lacks both of these features. The brush also prompts you to switch from the front to the back and from the upper to the lower teeth every 30 seconds. Dentists recommend that you brush for 2 minutes for a thorough cleaning. My current brush has this feature.
The best feature on this brush, the bristles move in a side to side motion. This action gives you a better cleaning than regular electric brushes. It is also the most important feature for me because I have deep pockets around my lower, front teeth. Flossing is a must for me even after using my electric brush. With this model, you get a deep clean. It goes deep into the crevices. One of it's selling points is that it removes 100% more plague. I don't know about 100% more, but it does give a great cleaning.
The only negative that I found, was the head lacks a cover. It's small and would be great for travel. Because the charger on my current electric brush is rather large, I take a manual brush when I travel. Unfortunately, a manual brush doesn't come close to giving the cleaning that an electric brush gives. To remedy the lack of a head cover, I'll just stick it in a plastic bag before placing it in my cosmetic bag. I really want to take this baby with me.
I highly recommend the Oral B Professional. I'm not a dentist, but I switched from a manual brush years ago and will never go back. Let me also add that my dental cleanings take less time since I switched to an electric brush. I have both brushes setting next to each other. I find myself reaching for the Oral B now.
