We used are Sonicare's for the first time
So it's been over 15 days since we actually received our new Sonicare toothbrushes from are good friend's James and Amy. And tonight we finally got around to using them for the first time.
If you don't know much about these things. They are high powered electric toothbrushes. I forget the exact number but they operate at such high speeds it equals like 36,000 regular brush strokes a minute.
So we've been delaying the rollover to the Sonicares from our regular brushes because our friends recommended that we read the manual and what-not. So tonight we were finally ready...
The manual says to have the Sonicare in your month when you turn it on, and to keep your month closed at all times during the brushing, because if you don't do both of those, toothpaste will splatter all over the place. So I have the brush in my mouth, and I turn the thing on and the sensation of the vibrating device caused me to jerk the thing out of my mouth. "It tickles!" I immediately exclaimed to my wife who was already laughing at me. So I tried again and ended with the same results. As did my 3rd and 4th and I believe 5th try. By the 6th try and using the Sonicare I was finally able to keep the thing in my mouth for a full brushing.
All said and done, they are cool. Wife doesn't think her mouth feels as clean when brushing with the Sonicare, I on the other hand think it does the job right. She prolly just had better technique to start with. I think on the road to whiter teeth!
