We were at the dentist the other day, and the technician gushed about how awesome sonic toothbrushes were for kids with braces, and everyone else in the universe, and how we would be crazy not to own some ourselves. Just angle it 45 degrees at the gum lines and the plaque disappears like turkey dinner in my house.
So I bought some.
It was only $20 for mine, and my son’s upgraded model was $30 with online coupons, courtesy of that online behemoth commonly known as Amazon.
I was eager to test this puppy out, but I had to wait through a twenty-four hour charging period. And, I’m a rule follower, so I didn’t cheat. A full day after arrival, I dampened the bristles and put my pea-sized dollop of toothpaste on the brush and put it in my mouth. Hit the button.
The whirring and vibrating began in earnest. What a strange feeling! Not bad, but different. Oh, man, and then the little bristles glanced off of my lip.
It was the craziest tickling sensation. Have any of you out there felt it? Experienced it? It’s been three days, and I guess I am getting used to it, but I’m not sure. It’s so weird. So weird.
My teeth feel polished and clean, though. Which was the point. So if my teeth are healthier, I guess I can deal with the strange tickling sensation.
I posted a link to the toothbrush I bought below, if you’d like to check it out. Pretty cool. Very cheap. Take note … replacement heads are needed every few months.
As always … happy reading & keep a good book handy!
