Long ago and far away, I had a dreadful dentist appointment where my sensitive teeth and I were put through the (figurative) wringer, and in a fit of dentalphobia, I stopped going to the dentist. For, ummm… well, the number of years is unimportant. Ahem.
When I resumed (with a different, kinder, dentist), I was told to get myself a fancy sonic toothbrush for maximum dental health. And I shopped around and bought myself something and used it for many years, but these days I find myself going for my regular toothbrush more often than not, because my sonic toothbrush feels big and bulky and sometimes it hurts my sensitive teeth.
So perhaps you’ll understand when I say that I have a big ol’ crush on the new Oral-B Pulsonic Toothbrush; it’s the slimmest, lightest model they’ve ever made, but it boasts over 27,000 vibrations per minute. It not only has a 2-minute timer (and beeps every 30 seconds to facilitate equal cleaning for all four quadrants of your mouth), it has a “sensitive” mode, too. For sensitive people. Like me.
