Whilst browsing Costco at the weekend, I can across a new Oral-B toothbrush system which features a new kind of brush head called Triumph.
I bought my first electric toothbrush back in 1998 with the purchase of a basic Oral-B plaque remover which was half-price in Boots. Considerably more effective than a manual brush, I used that brush (replacing the head regularly) for many years. I wasn't alone, my entire family started using electric toothbrushes because they're highly recommended. Not my recommendation though, my brother's. As the profile on his website explains, Dr Jarrad Rose has now been a qualified dentist for 14 years, with a practice in Liverpool UK, and doesn't go anywhere without an electric toothbrush. As far as I'm concerned, anybody who specialises in titantium Implantology, Invisalign "invisible" braces, and Laser Whitening is a much better expert in dental care than I'll ever be so I'll happily go with his recommendation. Considering he personally covers the cost of my dental work, he's only going to suggest things that may save him money.
If was after using his Oral-B ProfessionalCare 7000 device that I upgraded my old Oral-B Plaque Remover to what was then this latest model. It was faster, had more functions (timer etc.) and the battery lasted longer. To top it off the charging light was blue!
I've been happy with the 7000 for a couple of years now, but now I see the new Oral-B Triumph ProfessionalCare (TM) 9000 Toothbrush with it's new FlossAction (TM) brushhead. The picture doesn't do it justice, in the flesh this thing just looks like it has to work. The 9000 system isn't cheap but, after close inspection of the packaging, I learned that the Triumph brushheads apparently fit onto any current Oral-B toothbrush model.
That's pretty true. Although for full functionality you need the 9000 handle unit, it will fit to my 7000 handle just perfectly and clean just as well. Yes, the 9000 has more speeds adjustment etc. but the 7000 will power it all and work just fine. I've been using it since Sunday night when I got back from Costco and it does exactly what it says on the packaging. My gums feel healthier and the backs of my teeth are the cleanest they're been for months.
So if you're in the market for a new toothbrush, or just a new head for your old one, I couldn't recommend any better.
