Motor Toothbrush?

Anyone have feedback on how well those little motorized toothbrushes run? I almost bought myself a Braun-Oral-B power toothbrush at the drugstore today, but I was unnerved by the price tag and settled for a traditional CVS medium-bristle diamond-head with an extended plaque-fighting tip. I like it. The plaque-fighting tip works quite well.

    We used to have one of those motorized toothbrushes. It works fairly well, since it’s tiny and it can reach parts of your mouth that the regular toothbrush can’t. Plus you don’t have to tire out your wrist because the bristles rotate.

    It’s a very brilliant idea, but I still prefer the traditional toothbrush :)

    I’ve tried those spinning toothbrushes (I picked up the virtually unknown Reach brand). Be sure to get one that is rechargeable and not one that runs off batteries: The batteries tend to run out after a week or so of regular use, so unless you intend on getting MH batteries I suggest against getting a battery-powered toothbrush.

    The best “electric” toothbrush on the market as far as I’ve heard is the Sonicare brand, which is shaped like a regular toothbrush (rectangular, not circular) and vibrates thousands of times a minute. The kit costs almost $100 though, but it IS the best.

    The Brauns are good though.
