Let me tell you a story of how I ended up loving my new electric toothbrush: Somehow every time I have a baby, I end up having a root canal. I have always had good oral health. Sure I have had a cavity here or there, but I wasn’t one of those people who had big dental things going on… heck! I never even had braces! Until I had a baby.
Then when my first was about 3 months old I was up for a middle of the night feeding when a pain so intense struck I didn’t even know what was happening. All I knew was that 6 hours until the dentist opened was TOO long! Many hours and pleading phone calls later I had an appointment with a dentist that came in from his vacation after hours to see me (yes I begged that much!) And it was as he had expected… (dun, dun dun) a root canal was needed!
Fast forward two and a half years and one kid later. Same story, same result. I visited my dentist with some serious tooth pain and it was indeed, another root canal. I explained my theory to my dentist that 1 baby = 1 root canal. He assured me that there was no conclusive evidence to support that, but I am not sure I am buying it! I kinda think those precious little angels suck all the nutrients right out of my body, starting with my teeth!
Whether I have made a medical break through or not, it had become crystal clear that I needed a change when it came to oral health. If I am already brushing and flossing what can I do to really be more effective cleaning my teeth?
Enter the Philips Sonicare PowerUp. I have always been a manual brush user. Sure those fancy brushes look nice, but the price tag has always left me hesitant to make the leap. When I found out that I could get the powerful clean of a Philips Sonicare in an affordable battery operated option, I was in! Around $20 and a trip to Walmart later, I was the proud owner of a brand new orange Philips Sonicare PowerUp toothbrush. You can see more about my shopping trip here!
I took my new orange beauty home and was so excited to try it out! I put the batteries in and turned it on. It was really powerful! I wasn’t sure if the battery operated version would leave me wanting more and better, so i was really happy with how it worked. The best part came when I started brushing my teeth. It seems almost effortless compared to brushing with a regular toothbrush. All I did was guide it and the hard part was done for me! They say “A month’s worth of brush strokes in a day,” I’d totally agree! Philips shares a great video that puts this all in perspective about the evolution of the toothbrush on their Facebook page. You can see it here! When I finished up, my teeth felt dentist clean. I know I can’t be the only one who loves how smooth your teeth feel after you leave the dentist! That was exactly the feeling of satisfaction I had after I brushed with my new Sonicare PowerUp! Life was good!
Two weeks later I am still loving my new toothbrush and my teeth feel cleaner and healthier than ever. I am so glad I made the switch and lucky for me they sell replacement heads so that I can continue to brush this way without having to buy new units.
