Usually I use a regular toothbrush, but, my dentist reccomended that I buy an electric toothbrush. When I was younger I never liked electric toothbrushes because I have sensitive gums and it would hurt to use them, so I was a little reluctant to buy one. When I got to the store I just decided to buy a non expensive one, just to try it out. I was very delightfully surprised by this electric toothbrush, it didn't hurt my gums at all to use it. An added bonus is that it is rechargeable which is pretty awesome seeing as it didn't cost much at all when usually you see rechargeable toothbrushes going for fifty dollars or more. The only small problem I have with it is that the spinning is very fast and it sometimes sprays the toothpaste everywhere. I think if I get a gel toothpaste I could fix that problem though. The fast spinning also causes it to be a tad loud which can be annoying at first, but you get used to it. I'd say it's worth the noise though seeing as it is very effective and my mouth always feels refreshed and clean after every use. This is a really good electric toothbrush for the price, and I'd reccomend it to anyone, if they didn't want to spend a lot on a toothbrush.
