This is the common problem with Christmas gifts – they’re a lovely idea in theory, but often a complete faff in practice. I’m always torn between buying someone what they want, and buying someone what I want them to have (it’s also a reflection of what I’d like to receive!).
I’m sure you can relate to receiving gifts you don’t really need, want, or ever use. They get stashed away, given away, or worst of all, recycled as another gift next year. My formula for the perfect gift is to look for something practical, something that everyone will need, and something that is truly useful. It may not be something fancy that they’re hankering for, but certainly something that they’ll treasure, use and benefit from it.
To put it simply, I look for Christmas gift that is affordable, sustainable and from the heart. So, I’m getting Oral-B Power Toothbrush as Christmas gift for my family this year.
Just a short brand introduction here, although I’m sure all of you are already familiar with Oral-B. 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 centres and interdental products, such as dental floss. Oral-B toothbrushes are used by more dentists than any other brand worldwide.
Oral-B power toothbrush removes 100% more plaque for a dentist clean feeling every day. Its Oscillating Rotating Technology cups each tooth separately for a precise and thorough clean. According to a 2005 independent study, brushes that worked with a rotation oscillation action removed more plaque and reduced gingivitis more effectively than manual brushes. Oral-B pioneered this oscillating-rotating power technology in 1991 and has incorporated it into its premium power toothbrush range ever since. Not mentioning their pulsating technology, which further helps to provide that ultraclean feeling every day. Combining the three powers together and you get their ultimate 3D TECHNOLOGY!
Why toothbrush, you may ask. Oral care is very important, thus I want to give the best possible oral care for my loved ones. Power toothbrush provides superior plaque removal than regular toothbrush. It provides the brushing action for us, so many people find power toothbrush easier to use than regular manual ones. Additionally, with different types and features available, it’s easy to find one that suits our specific oral health needs.
I love my power toothbrush. Since I started using a few months ago, I could never go back to regular toothbrush. Every time I brush my teeth with a power toothbrush, I experience the same clean feeling like I just came back from the dentist (minus the pain!). It gives me the confidence that I need to start my day.
Brushing with a power toothbrush is easier once you learn how to do it properly. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean that it’s difficult to start using one. To use it, simply put toothpaste on the brush head and hold the brush at a 45-degree angle, just as you hold a regular toothbrush. Then, turn it on and move the toothbrush from tooth to tooth.
It’s just a matter of getting used to it. Instead of “actual brushing” with your regular manual toothbrush, you just need to move the power toothbrush from tooth to tooth to brush it. You should spend about two minutes with power toothbrush to ensure that you’ve cleaned each tooth properly. When you’re finished, simply rinse the toothbrush head with water and allow it to dry.
Oral-B Professional Care 3000 provides dentist-inspired cupping action in which a unique, round brush head surrounds each tooth for a tooth-by-tooth clean. It attacks plaque from the perfect angle, while the bristles reach deep between teeth. You’ll be surprised that it can provide up to 40,000 pulsations and 8,800 oscillations per minute!
Three lovely features of this power toothbrush that I really like:
1. It has a visible pressure indicator and sensor that stops pulsations when you’re brushing too hard. I don’t have to worry when buying this for my son.
2. It has 3 customized brushing modes – Daily Clean, Sensitive, and Whitening, that are best matched with their own brush heads.
3. It has Indicator® bristles to remind me to replace my brush head every 3 months, once they’ve faded halfway.
Oral-B Professional Care 3000 set comes with Oral-B Precision brush head (3pcs), charger and a brush head compartment with protective cover.
Edison has been longing for a power toothbrush since he saw me using it a few months ago. So, he’ll be truly be excited to get one this Christmas. Moreover, during his last dental check-up, his dentist noticed that his gums are slightly inflamed. Thus, he was advised to brush his teeth thoroughly and floss them daily to prevent plaque accumulation and gum disease.
Hence, I’m confident that Oral-B power toothbrush with 3D technology can give his teeth a precise and thorough clean.
Christmas is a season of sharing, giving and receiving. And it’s the perfect time to show our loved ones how much we care for them. Thus, I recommend Oral-B power toothbrush as a great Christmas gift for your loved one. Give them the best dental tool that they deserve, and in return, you’ll be happy to see them with a happy and healthy smile every day. =)
