Growing up I was not that good at brushing my teeth regularly and it wasn’t until I was too old to know better that I started really taking care of my teeth. With kids now I’m trying to lead by example and good oral hygiene is daily opportunity. The bedtime routine has me brushing my teeth with the boys, each of us with our toothbrush of choice, and modeling how long to brush and what face to make into the mirror for maximum entertainment. Our visits to the dentist have shown that we are doing something right.
After a lifetime of manual brushing I was given the chance to test out the Oral-B ProfessionalCare SmartSeries 5000 with SmartGuide. The Smart Guide shows how long to brush and gives you feedback on how you’re doing during brushing. I’ve been using it for a week now and I think I’m just now getting the hang of using a power brush and as a man I’m predisposed to like any sort of power tool, am I right. After another week of use I will tell you more about how it’s going but until then you can check out Oral-B on Facebook and Twitter or head over to their website for a special deal (Oral-B is offering a $10 mail-in rebate on select power toothbrushes April 29 through June 16, 2012. Please visit OralB.com for more information)
