When I started having kids, everything went downhill as far as my teeth were concerned. As you can imagine, when I was told I had 7 cavities at my last check up in April, it was a bit of a shock! I cried. Yep, I totally did. After I had half of the cavities filled, I went in for a cleaning. The hygienist was SO nice and pointed out a few of her favorite products. She pointed out a few Sonicare items they had for sale in office but told me any electric toothbrush would do fine for my needs.
Since I can't afford a Sonicare toothbrush, I took her information and left the office. A few weeks ago, I heard about a new toothbrush from Philips Sonicare that I COULD afford! I headed out to Walmart to see what the hubbub was all about. I quickly found the display and at under $20, quickly put a Sonicare PowerUp in my cart!
I was hesitant to try it at first because my teeth are pretty sensitive. The brush I was using was a super soft manual brush. I was only able to find a medium brush and was worried it might be too stiff for my teeth. It wasn't at all! Since I am so used to using a manual toothbrush, it did take me a few days to get used to the vibration of the electric toothbrush but, it wasn't a big deal.
Because you get a month's worth of brush strokes in just one day with the Philips Sonicare PowerUp toothbrush, I know my hygienist is going to be super impressed at my next check up! Oh, and just what do I plan to do with my old manual toothbrush? Well, use it for cleaning of course!
