Hey all,

Tired of these crappy manual brushes and ready to invest in a good electrical toothbrush. While Sonicare seems like "the name" in the industry I'm wonder about how it compares to the Oral-B offerings.

Do any of you have personal experiences to share?

Thanks in advance!

I have used both, and honestly I think they are very similar. However, Sonicare "feels" better due to the way it cleans your teeth.

I've used both - I have the Oral B Triumph and Sonicare 4900? and Sonicare is better by far. It cleans my teeth way better than Oral B did.

I have a Braun brush with Oral-B heads, and it works wonders. It was recommended by my dentist as being the best out there. It's great.

I have had the same Oral-B for +3 years and I just love it. I use the soft bristle replacement heads. I have never tried a Sonicare.

Sonicare: hands down. It does a much better job that the oral B (I think because of the greater surface area of the brush + the more powerful motor). Been using mine for 3 years now and my dentist always comments on how I never seem to get tartar build up at all.

Can't recommend it enough.

I've had a sonicare for about 2 years. It's great.

I have not used the oral-b.

Second a write-in vote for Braun.

I have used OralB (the one with normal brush head not the circular one) and SoniCare, prefer SoniCare for its better reach.

Get a rotodent, i have tried Oral-b and Sonic and I like rotodent the best by far, I think you might have to talk to you dentist to get one though.

I've been using my Sonicare for the past 6 six years. Don't know much about oral-b but my dentist was the one who recommended that I get a Sonicare.

Had a Sonicare for many years, finally it broke. Decided to try an Oral-B. Returned it and bought another Sonicare.

I have a sonicare. Used it for a month or two before switching back to the regular toothbrushes.
