My husband and I have used an expensive sonic electric toothbrush for quite a few years now and I am a big believer in how well my sonic toothbrush cleans my teeth. A good toothbrush is an important investment, and whenever we get a check up the dental hygienist always comments on how clean our teeth are. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
But for all the good, there is one major problem with our toothbrushes… they are $$$$ expensive.
I’ve wanted to outfit our kids with toothbrushes like ours, but I just can’t afford to do it. I was thrilled when my new toothbrush arrived a few weeks ago. I couldn’t wait to see how the Spinbrush would stack up against a toothbrush that costs more than 10 times the price.
Here are my impressions. The Spinbrush works differently from my sonic toothbrush. It has a spin at the top and a back and forth action on the bottom. It feels awesome on your mouth- like a massage. I loved the way it made my gums feel- stimulating and yet still gentle. The brush head and handle feel more bulky than my brush, but I’m sure that’s something I would get used to.
I missed having the two minute timer that my toothbrush has, but it was easy to watch the clock on my bathroom counter to make sure I was brushing long enough. My teeth felt really clean when I was done.
The only other downside to the Spinbrush ProClean is that it is battery powered and not rechargable. I haven’t used the Spinbrush ProClean long enough to know how long a battery lasts… but changing batteries is never fun.
Here’s a few advantages of using a Spinbrush ProClean:
BRUSH LONGER This is purely unscientific, but I’m convinced you brush longer when you are using an electric toothbrush like a Spinbrush. I personally find it really hard to brush for 2 whole minutes with a regular toothbrush. With an electric toothbrush it feels so good the time is up before you know it.
BRUSH BETTER This is scientific. The Spinbrush ProClean is is clinically proven to remove up to 70% more plaque in hard to reach areas than a manual toothbrush.
SAVE MONEY In the long run, I’m convinced that cleaner teeth and healthy gums equates to less money spent at the dentist.
My conclusion: Arm & Hammer’s SpinBrush ProClean toothbrush is a great alternative if you can’t or don’t want to splurge on an high-priced electric toothbrush. It cleans really well, feels great to brush with, and is a fantastic price.
