How do I choose an Oral-B toothbrush?
Choosing the Right Toothbrush If you have a small mouth, opt for a compact head. And some adults even prefer youth or child-sized toothbrushes because they find them easier to use for brushing behind the back teeth. If comfort is important, try a toothbrush with a non-slip grip, which makes it easy to use even if wet.

What is the difference between all the Oral-B electric toothbrushes?
The difference between them is the brush head which comes in the box (eg. CrossAction 1000 will have a CrossAction toothbrush head), and the color of the toothbrush handle. These models oscillate at 8,800 movements per minute and 20,000 pulsations per minute.
What is the difference between different electric toothbrushes?
The main differences between the two are speed of brushing and coverage. Electric toothbrushes have brush heads that rotate at a rate of about 2,500 to 7,500 strokes per minute, compared to about 300 strokes per minutes when you brush with a manual toothbrush.
When should I get a new electric toothbrush?
Many dental professionals recommend changing your toothbrush about every three months, and the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that you replace your toothbrush approximately every three to four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed.
How often should you replace your toothbrush?
“The average person should be swapping out for a new toothbrush every three to four months,” explains Dr. Sienna Palmer, DDS, dentist at Meridien Dental in Santa Monica, CA. “This is recommended to ensure that the bristles are still effective and bacteria accumulation on the toothbrush is minimal.”
