Product Review: Oral-B Triumph Electric Toothbrush

Do you already own and use an electric toothbrush? If not, I'm sure you've had your eye on one, since you know dentists recommend using an electric toothbrush to keep your teeth and gums healthy. I just got the new Oral-B Triumph with Smart Guide ($140). Pricey, yes, but it's a lot cheaper than a filling or a root canal, and a lot more enjoyable. You can print a $15 mail-in rebate found on the Oral-B website.

What makes this toothbrush so great? To find out


The Triumph does all the work for you. It comes with a little wireless digital monitor that has a clock on it, and a little circular diagram that represents the four areas of your mouth. Once you charge your toothbrush, take it off the holder, and turn it on. You'll see the timer on the SmartGuide display begin. After every 30 seconds, the toothbrush vibrates to let you know it's time to move to a different area of your mouth, and you'll also see the circular diagram flash as well. Once your dentist-recommended two minutes of brushing are done, it vibrates again. That's it. It's so easy. This toothbrush has actually made brushing my teeth fun, and the best part is the amazingly clean feeling I have after. My gums also feel better, since the vibrating head gives them a nice little massage.

This innovative toothbrush can help you get on the road to good dental habits by encouraging you to brush at least two minutes. It will also alert you if you're brushing too hard, which can lead to gum recession. The little SmartGuide monitor also indicates when it's time to replace your toothbrush head. Another plus is that the Triumph is rechargeable, so you never have to buy batteries. This is the best toothbrush out there. It'd make a great healthy gift, don't you think? Get it through Amazon ($95), Walgreens ($140), or ($110).

Oooh. I want one badly. My dentist is always telling me to get one, but they're pricey. I guess your teeth are worth it though.

I've been using a Sonicare electric toothbrush for years and I don't know how I ever lived without it. Should I happen to forget it on a road trip I feel like I'm doing my teeth a disservice using a regular brush. Thank you Cousin T. the oral surgeon for the great Christmas gift, even though it took my a few years to really appreciate it's value. :)
