I need to purchase a new toothbrush today and need help deciding which electronic toothbrush is better. I want something to help whiten my teeth.

Have any of you tried these brushes? How do you like using it?
Which one would you recommend I purchase and why?

I am considering either the Sonicare Flexcare or the Oral B Triumph

I use to work in a dental office and we always recommended Sonicare. We tried the Oral B for awhile and just didn't see the same results. IMO you can't go wrong with the Sonicare.

Wow. Those are really fancy looking! I have an Oral-B one, but it looks nothing like the ones in the pics. I don't use it much; it feels weird heh. Let us know what you get though, and how you like it!

Sonicare is my choice, for the more precise and detailed brush movement.

Several years ago, I switched to Sonicare from Oral B. My ex BF, who is a dentist, also sold Sonicare at his office. Unless Oral B improved their product, my

Sonicare is my choice when it comes to toothbrushes, and I somehow feel insulted by toothbrushes that come with a display that shows me how to brush my teeth and pops up a smiley face when "done".

I've heard that they've done studies that showed that Oral B works better because of the oscillating heads. Being a newbie here, I don't want to post a link and get booted from the forum so when I think the cost is clear I'll post a link to that article.

I have the Sonicare Flexcare, the one with the sanitizer and I really like it. I've used other Sonicare brushes as well and they are all great. I've never used Oral B so can't comment. You can't go wrong with Sonicare and if you've never used an electric toothbrush before you're in for a real treat. Your teeth will feel so much cleaner than a regular toothbrush. Let us know which one you pick and how you like it.

does anyone have any opinions on the rotodent? it's like a requirement at my dentist's office...i told them i already had a clarisonic and they said this one's better. but it's so old looking and i don't know if they're just trying to sell me something...

I have the exact same Sonicare one... love it! Though I never bother to use the sanitizer, even though it's pretty cool looking.

I have the exact sonicare you've included in the pic, and I love it! I've been using Sonicare exclusively for the last 5 years, and recommend the brand 100%.

I've had that model of Sonicare for at least a year and it works very well. My DS had an oral-B electric (not the model pictured though), and he asks up to buy extra heads for the sonicare for him as he prefers to use our toothbrush.
