A few weeks ago my husband and I picked up two Philips EasyClean Rechargable sonic toothbrushes at Sam’s Club. They were sold as a set (two-pack), so it seemed like it was meant to be. We’ve been talking about getting “electric toothbrushes” for a while now because my teeth seem to have issues relating to the hard to reach spots, and my husband thinks he brushes too hard. So far, we are extremely happy with the purchase. We both feel like our teeth and gums are healthier overall. For example, my gums have always had a tendency to bleed when brushing certain areas or flossing (I know…gross), and since using this toothbrush, it has completely subsided.
Two toothbrushes for only a little more than the price of one (@ Sam’s Club); inexpensive as far as sonic toothbrushes go
One button, one cycle (foolproof and easy to use)
Automatic two-minute timer (the toothbrush shuts off after two minutes, ensuring you get a thorough brush)
It looks good. The sleek look and travel carrying case make it as easy as a traditional toothbrush to travel with.
The brush heads have to be replaced every three months. A pack of five goes for around $25/3 pack. Not a huge deal, but it can be a pain to remember. And, it’s obviously pricier than replacing a regular toothbrush every few months.
Although the charger is small and sleek, the cord seems bulky if you keep it on your counter at all times.
