I've always hated electronic toothbrushes. They're bulky, ugly, clunky, and the sound they make reminds me of a trip to my dentist's office. It's so unpleasant at any time of day, but especially right before I go to bed and certainly immediately after waking up.
That's why I feel badly even calling the Oral-B Pulsonic an electric toothbrush. It's in a different class, folks. I used it for a good month before recommending it to you, because I couldn't believe that I'd actually dropped manual for this buzzing apparatus. (I thought I'd get over the novelty.) But the thing is, it's the most unoffensive sonic toothbrush yet. I can't imagine ever going back.
It's only slightly thicker than a regular toothbrush, and it's lightweight. (The last electronic toothbrush I tried was so clumsy, it reminded me of a curling iron.)
Best of all, it's so quiet. Now, I don't have to worry about waking up my boyfriend every time I brush my teeth, thankyouverymuch.
All that, and it takes up the same space as a bar of soap.
The toothbrush hits shelves in September. Get ready to retire that lame stick with bristles you're using now.
