| "What a disappointment!"|| |
|- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Boston Harbor|
|I've given this a fair trial, I think. After more than a month I have broken a tooth, knocked a fixed bridge out of line and my gums have never stopped bleeding. Since this was a "gift" from a well-meaning offspring, I know I needed to bear with it a while before throwing it out the window. . .
This toothbrush is SO bad! It's like having an electric egg-beater in your mouth. It might be reworked to shine your shoes, but it's not worth it. If you get one, be careful you don't hit anyone when you throw it out the window!
| "Hydra Toothbrush Leaves Teeth Squeaky Clean & Glass-Like"|| |
|- Reviewed By An Amazon User from California|
|I bought the Hydra Toothbrush and I'm completely happy at how fast I get my teeth cleaned. It leaves my teeth squeaky clean! My teeth feel like their glass smooth! Just like they felt when I had my braces taken off some 35 years ago. It's fast and convenient. I am a petite woman (5'2") so my mouth is a lot smaller. I've taken one of the brushes off the unit because it's too bulky for my mouth. It's amazing how fast it cleans. When I'm done with the top teeth, I brush the bottom. My 11 year old son commented how clean and shiny my teeth
look. I've flossed after using the sonic brush and have found that I don't have food stuck. I'll be getting some for my boys. They don't like to brush, but have used the sonic toothbrush unit with their OWN brushes on the unit and it's made a world of a difference with the dentist including with me. He's found our teeth in pretty good shape.
The only drawback is that the charger is not charging like it said. I have to constantly charge it. Not that big of problem. For smaller children, it's better to use only one brush attachment instead of two. Also, the unit is big, but oh well, it does a great job at cleaning and you don't have to spend the usual amount of time to brush your teeth as opposed to regular teeth brushing.

|This is very easy to use. It is fast. I haven't gone to the dentist yet, but my teeth seem to be getting very clean. My gums were quite sore the first week, but now after a month, I have no bleeding so I guess my gums are stronger now.|
| "Very Disappointed with this product"|| |

|I read all the reviews, and thought this would be an awesome product to help with my fight against periodontal disease. When I tried to use the brush, you have to bite down as the brush is rotating! I felt as if it was going to chip my teeth, it really freaked me out, I sent it back immediately. I was very disappointed in the product, and lost money when I had to send it back. Think long and hard before you purchse this product.

| "Yes, a good brushing in much less time"|| |
|- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Ridgefield, CT USA|
|This toothbrush really does let you get a thorough brushing in much less time, which is great for those of us who are chronically running late (or just impatient, or easily bored). It does take a little effort to figure out how to use it (maybe they should provide a link to a web video in their directions), but once you figure it out, it's easy. I liked this better than the Oral-B, and *much* better than the sonic (which vibrated at a frequency that was just uncomfortable to me). And it's certainly much faster! I think that's a real key. Not only is it a timesaver, but also, some people are only going to brush a short time no matter what. In that case a short brushing with this is certainly going to do a more through job than a short brushing with anything else.
Since there are only two available brush lengths, and many different sizes of teeth in the world, it is possible that a given person may not get the optimal reach, but it's fine for me, and apparently for many others. The real downside is the charging system, which is physically awkward, and has no auto shut-off to prevent over-charging. And you do want to keep it operating at close to full charge, so that's a nuisance. (At lesser charge, it can seem underpowered, and when the charge gets really low, it quickly goes from operational to a dead stop without warning.) Supposedly the current shipping model has a better charging system (and possibly stronger motor?), so that one might be worthy of 5 stars.
