Oral-B Professional Precision 1000 Electric Toothbrush *Review & Giveaway*



I have a shameful confession to make: I haven't been to the dentist in at least 5+ years. It never used to be like that; my sister, mother and I went to our longtime dentist twice a year, got our regular checkups and when need be, had cavities filled (okay, apparently that was mostly me-I loved that laughing gas).

Somewhere along the way after I got sick and my mom and I were looking into more natural options when it came to our oral care, we brought our questions and concerns to our trusted, longtime dentist and you know what happened? We were looked down upon like WE were the nutballs and treated extremely poorly!

That was enough of that.

Due to the fact that we don't have a dentist (yet), we all have to be very careful with our teeth, gums and general oral health. Brush twice daily, floss, mouthwash, etc, etc.

I admit, I can probably definitely be a lot better and thanks to Oral-B, now I can!

A little about Oral-B:

"The Oral-B brand is a worldwide leader in the over $5 billion brushing market. Part of the Procter & Gamble Company since 2006, the Oral-B brand includes manual and power toothbrushes for children and adults, oral irrigators, oral care centers and interdental products, such as dental floss. Oral-B toothbrushes are used by more dentists than any other brand worldwide.


I was lucky enough to be sent Oral-B's Oral-B Professional Precision 1000 Electric Toothbrush from their professional line of electric toothbrushes. 

I've only tried electric toothbrushes once or twice in the past and quite honestly, I haven't really been the biggest of fans

I'm more of a manual kinda gal because of the control I yield over where the toothbrush goes, how fast it goes, and in which direction. 

All that being said, surprise surprise, I quite enjoyed this toothbrush! 

It's definitely harder bristled and smaller then a manual, soft bristle toothbrush which I had to get used to the first few times I used it, but after that it honestly felt like an overall thorough clean. 

Note to those who've never used an electronic toothbrush before: once you put the toothpaste on, place in mouth BEFORE turning on. 

I made that mistake the hard way. LOL 

The other thing I really liked about this particular toothbrush is the fact that if you brush too hard, the rotating motion completely stops to let you know. I guess I have a tendency to brush hard because I had that happen to me several times. Go figure! 

The only complaint I have is how the vibrating action of the brush makes your head feel after you finish brushing your teeth. The first time I felt a little light headed and dizzy, but then again, I've never used something like this before. 

Either I'm just sensitive or it takes a little while to get used to.

I would love to have this Oral B electric toothbrush because I have a tendency to brush my teeth too hard, which pushed my gums up really and caused major recession, which means my teeth are really sensitive! The dentist said this toothbrush is good for that.
