I just got an Oral B by Braun. I'll use this to see what will happen.

I've had a couple Sonicare toothbrushes and an Oral B.  I prefer the Oral B given the choice but both are far superior to a manual toothbrush.

Just noticed the Quip toothbrush also has the ADA "seal of acceptance."  Mine is still going strong after several years of use.

About a month ago, I bought a forty dollar Oral B. It has the “cross action” head. So far, it seems to be doing just fine.

I can’t make a comparison to anything other than my manual toothbrush. It’s definitely doing better at plaque removal than the manual.

Digging up the dead, I see.... Blush  Used Oral-B for years. Got a Sonicare over a year ago, dental checkups have been good with both. 
Talking to my Dentist, like 7months ago, he mentioned he used a Sonicare. Valencia or Navel.....still an orange... Winky

I really like my Sonicare and I’ve recently complemented it with a Waterpik electric water flosser. The Waterpik is much easier to use than regular floss and, I think, gets better results.

I appreciate this thread. Me and my wife have been using Sonicare for 3 years now as suggested by our dentist. Since then every 6 months my check ups have been great. Gums look good. Recently the hygienist told my wife she should get an Oral B for the rotating head. I think it all starts to get a little confusing. I appreciate the dentist comments in the thread. I'm thinking just stick with what works but paying attention to changing out the head of the brush often regardless of which brand.

Last spring, I bought an Oral B. I think it was fine. However, always in search of "better," today i purchased a Sonicare. I bought it at Kohl's. And then later today, I see a later "better" model at Target for the same price! Go figure.

Anyway, I'm going to try the Sonicare for a few months, listen to the hygenist next spring, and then decide which one I think is the better choice for me. Either one is better in terms of teeth cleaning than a manual toothbrush.

Yeah I own one of the higher-end oral-b brushes and it works well, but I’m pretty confident that I would prefer a Sonicare. To me the oral-b heads are clunky and while I have a large mouth, it can get tight back by my wisdom teeth. Also I use the waterpik flosser, too, but it’s always good to do a normal floss at least once a week because no method is perfect.

Update: I discovered that the Kohl's brush was a discontinued model. I returned it and bought the one at Target. And, by using the Target Red Card, I saved 5%.
I did like the rubberized front part of the Oral-B. The Sonicare I bought doesn't have it.

I've owned both and prefer the Oral B.  Kind of like Ford Vs Chevy.  They both work.
