Today, I just have a simple question.
Do you use an electric toothbrush or a manual toothbrush?
I use a good old fashioned toothbrush: the Colgate Wave to be exact.
I think I had an electric toothbrush at some point during my childhood, but obviously that trend didn’t stick. I’ve heard amazing things about using a Sonicare…but I’ve never pulled the trigger to purchase one. I know people swear by them, but forgive me for my skepticism.
My question is: do you really need an electric toothbrush? This is NOT to say that people who use electric brushes don’t know how to brush their teeth…not at all! I’m just saying…I’ve never had a cavity, so using a manual toothbrush has obviously not done wrong by me (and I realize that I just jinxed myself big time by making that statement…gulp). Plus…I like to replace my toothbrush. A lot. I probably replace mine about every two weeks. I feel like I need to…but I also probably brush my teeth more often than the average person. Once when I wake up, once more before I leave for work (after breakfast), again when I get home from work, before I go to the gym/after an afternoon snack, and finally again before bed. Yep. An average of 5 times a day most likely. I’m a monster.
I love the feeling of using a new toothbrush; I’d probably use a new one every day if that wouldn’t be completely ridiculous. I feel like I’d be spending a LOT of money on replacement toothbrush heads if I were to buy an electric toothbrush.
But then again…I’ve heard great things about the Sonicare…
What kind of toothbrush do YOU use? And I have to ask…does anyone else out there brush their teeth as much as I do?
