Philips Sonicare Series vs Oral-B Series

Brushing your teeth every morning and before bed is an acceptable and healthy daily routine. But let us face it! How many of us brush our teeth as thoroughly and as frequently as we’re supposed to? A lot of people take their dental health for granted as long as toothaches and other related dental maladies stay away. But research has shown that almost 40 percent of Americans don’t brush their teeth twice a day. And that most people take less than the two minutes recommended by dental authorities.

Using an electric brush is a good way to up your oral hygiene game. It’s designed to scrape away plaque and remove stubborn stretches better than a manual brush and because electric brushes come with an internal timer, they ensure that the brushing takes entirely the recommended two minutes. But with so many electric brush models flooding the market, finding a brush that suits your oral sensibilities, as well as your budget, can be a challenge.

Sonicare Diamondclean electric brushes are shaped like standard toothbrushes but vibrate at extremely high speeds. Their rotating-oscillating function has proved more efficient at removing gingivitis and plaque than other types of brushes.

Sonicare DiamondClean is unlike any other toothbrushes in the market. While other electric brushes enclose the motor and battery inside the body, the cavities and crevices become dwelling places for bacteria. If you clean using an Oral-B, check out the charging contact and notice the tiny crevices that allow bacteria and water to seep in. The Sonicare DiamondClean however, is completely sealed and will not allow any water and bacteria to build up. This brush is easy to clean also easy to keep clean.

But while the Sonicare DiamondClean may claim millions of adoring consumers, the Oral-B 7000, which is made by German manufacturer Braun, is engineered to perform.

The oral-B 7000 comes in six models and is designed to produce a full spectrum of oral hygiene that includes:

  • Daily clean
  • Deep clean
  • Massage
  • Whitening
  • Sensitive
  • Tongue Cleaning

Its built-in pressure sensor technology will alert you if you’re brushing too hard and automatically slow down the oscillation and pulsation speeds of the brushing head. If your mouth has accumulated plaque along the gum line, the Oral-B guarantees to remove 300% more plaque accumulation.

The specially designed gaskets and seals are meant to keep the Oral-B water-tolerant up to 500 millibars of pressure.

The Oral-B boasts a Wireless SmartGuide that gives the user real-time information as regards modes, areas getting brushed and the time of cleaning.

Apart from the sporty design, the Oral-B is made of different hi-tech materials including silicon and the chic traveling case protects all its important technology.
