The Sonicare Essence 5300 has an easy-start feature that starts the brush head rotating slowly and gradually increases power to up to 31,000 strokes per minute to allow the user to grow accustomed to the sensation and continue using the brush for the entire recommended two-minute brushing time. It features a specially designed angled neck to clean hard-to-reach back teeth and a head with bristles designed to remove plaque from deep between teeth. The Essence 5300 normally retails for $40 but is available online and in stores such as Walgreens for approximately $35.
The Sonicare 2 Series Plaque Control toothbrush is a rechargeable toothbrush that features a snap-on brush head designed with specially curved bristles that match the curve of the mouth and teeth and remove up to six times the amount of plaque and tartar that manual toothbrushes do. The Series 2 Plaque Remover has the same easy-start feature as the Essence and a smart timer that alerts the user when the two-minute brushing period ends. The Series 2 Plaque Remover normally retails for approximately $50 but is available online and in stores such as Wal-Mart for about $40.Learn more about Dental Hygiene
