Default PSA don't buy generic Sonicaire toothbrushes.

I needed a replacement for my Sonicaire E-series and the store didn't have them but they did have a generic brand.

Awful, truly awful.

Do you mean replacement brush heads?

I think mine is an Oral B, it's usually not too difficult to find the brush heads, but they are really expensive.
