If there is one thing I have had my fair share of, it's dentist appointments! I know, I know, the majority of people dread going to the dentist but my dread goes a little deeper than the normal fears. I figure I have a high chance of making it into the Guinness Book of World Records for the amount of fillings I have in my mouth. Really, every time I go for my normal dental check-up I find out I have some sort of problem with a filling or cavity. For some reason, those nasty, cavity loving bugs just love my teeth (I think it's my love for/addiction to chocolate that attracts them so much)!
After watching this pretty entertaining video on the evolution of the toothbrush, I decided the best way to nip this tooth problem in the bud was a change in toothbrushes. So, a few weeks ago I headed to the local Walmart to buy one of those fancy schmancy electric toothbrushes and I was going to spare no expense! You can view my entire path to purchase on my Google+ photo album.
As you saw in my Google+ album, I decided to go with the Philips Sonicare PowerUp toothbrush. I chose this electric toothbrush for a variety of reasons. First of all, I said I would spare no expense but I really did not have to. The Sonicare PowerUp is a brand new, totally affordable battery powered toothbrush sold at Walmart for under $20! AND the Philips Sonicare PowerUp claims to deliver "a month's worth of brush strokes in a day." Even my husband mentioned how bold of a statement that was and I was determined to find out if it was true.
Did the Sonicare PowerUp deliver?
I am totally impressed, like TOTALLY impressed with the Sonicare PowerUp toothbrush. Compared to the regular ol' manual toothbrush, brushing with the Sonicare PowerUp seemed so effortless! I was actually expecting the bristles to spin but I was surprised by the intense vibration the toothbrush provided and how clean my teeth felt afterwards! Do you know that feeling you have when leaving the dentist office after a professional teeth cleaning? You know what I am talking about, when you keep licking your teeth because they feel so clean and smooth? Well, this is how I felt every time I brushed my teeth using the Sonicare PowerUp! I can't wait for my next dental appointment, I just know I will impressed them this time!
After using the Sonicare PowerUp for only one week, I was not the only one who noticed the HUGE difference the electric toothbrush made to my sparkly whites. My husband was so impressed with the results of the PowerUp, we had to return to Walmart and buy one for him as well! I was actually very pleased with his decision to change toothbrushes and his interest in his oral health because I realize a healthy mouth actually mirrors a healthy you.
The couple who takes care of their health together will live healthier lives together.
Did you know bad oral hygiene can lead to other health problems? That's right, not only can tooth and gum disease lead to oral and facial pain but it can also lead to heart and digestive problems according to the Office of the Surgeon General. Therefore, proper oral care is very important to our overall health. So, stop playing around with those ancient toothbrushes and get something that will do the best job because your health is worth it!
