Oral-B Pro Health For Me - Toothbrush Review

I received product for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

I know all too well the importance of oral hygiene. I know because I didn't do so well with it myself and paid a hefty price. Sugars and acid eroded my top teeth and I'm now doomed to top falsies. That's why I harp to my kids the signifigance of proper brushing and healthy eating habits.

I think any toobhrush is better than none, but I'm of the personal opinion that rechargeable toothbrushes work a tad better than manual ones. They seem to have the extra oomph to get rid of food and particles. One toothbrush that Emma has been recently using is the Oral-B Pro Health For Me Rechargeable Toothbrush.

Designed for tweens, the Oral-B Pro Health For Me Rechargeable Toothbrush has a waterproof handle with designs that are attractive to the younger crowd. Included with the toothbrush is a small charging station to plug in when the toothbrush needs a new charge. Also included are two Sensitive Clean toothbrush heads. The charging station is small so it doesn't take up a lot of space. It does, however, require an outlet to plug in the cord when charging.
There are a few features on this toothbrush that make it advanced and user-friendly. There are indicators on the bristles that fade halfway when it's time to replace the heads. There's also a brushing timer so tweens can brush their teeth for the recommended time of two minutes without having to guess. The rotating bristles help ensure gunk and food particles are removed. Although there are two heads included with the toothbrush,replacement heads can also be purchased when needed.

Emma isn't usually one I have to bother with brushing her teeth but I can tell she finds a little more excitement in the mundane chore with the Oral-B Pro Health For Me toothbrush. She says she can feel the vibrations as she brushes and likes how it feels on her teeth. She also says her teeth feel really clean after brushing. The heads, to me, seem a little tiny for her 11 year-old teeth but I think they'll do for now and I can always purchase bigger replacement heads at a later time.

The Oral-B Pro Health for Me Rechargeable Toothbrush and Oral-B Pro Health For Me Sensitive Clean Brush Head Refills can be purchased at your local local Walmart.

Tips for a Healthy Halloween from America's ToothFairy!

Make this year memorable and sweet without all the sugar with these fun tips for a healthy Halloween! Give 'em a treat without the sweet! Hand out sugar-free candy, toothbrushes or fun little toys to trick or treaters! 

Make sure your child has a healthy meal before Halloween festivities to avoid snacking and a sugar overload!

If you are hosting a party, use healthy foods to make fun treats that the kids can enjoy. With a little fruit, some paper plates and toothpicks, children can create their own Monster Face. Melon balls or grapes make great monster’s eyeballs.  Simply spear the melon balls with the toothpicks and poke through the paper plate. For the monster’s nose, spear strawberries or orange slices, and for the monster’s smile, a banana will do just fine!

For a healthy smile year round, remember to brush, and floss your teeth twice a day and visit your dentist once every six months! For children ages 6 and up, use a fluoride rinse.

Trick or Treat with America's ToothFairy this year and help raise awareness and support to portect young smiles and help kids in need!

My dentist told me that any power toothbrush is better than a manual brush. Oral B does have high quality products, and I am sure their electric toothbrush is no exception!
