An honest and unsponsored Toothbrush review!
I have been very lucky with my teeth. I get regular dental care and I brush daily and floss a few times per week!
For years, I have been an avid “regular” toothbrush user. My dentist has always told me that my teeth and gums are in good health. I had a crown for a cracked tooth about 6 years ago. Other than that, no issues with my teeth.
Within the past 5 years or so I began to notice that plaque is building up on the inside of my lower teeth. It really bugs me. It makes my teeth and mouth feel less than clean. At my last dental appointment in July, I brought it up to the dentist. He said, “oh yes, as we age, that can become an issue”. I said “I don’t like it, what can we do about it?”
He suggested an electric toothbrush.
My experience with electric toothbrushes is limited to the time I bought some inexpensive ones to encourage my boys to brush longer. They did not last long and quite frankly, I had not thought about them again since then. The good ones just seemed too cost prohibitive.
But as a good dental patient, I did some more research – still found them on the expensive side and did not think about them again until Smile Brilliant contacted me a few weeks ago.
“don’t mess with the Universe when they send help”!
Smile Brilliant sent me the Caripro Ultrasonic toothbrush and asked me to use it for a couple of weeks. Below is a review of my findings.
The Look and feel of the CariPRO:
When you open the box, you are greeted with a sleek space-age looking brush. It is lightweight and has a soft feel to the handle. It looks great sitting on my bathroom counter with its cool docking station (very small and round). The brush I have comes with the toothbrush, 2 heads (super easy to switch) and the docking station with cord. Just plug it in and it is ready to go when you need it. The battery will last up to thirty days, but I just leave it on its docking station. I will be traveling some in November and will test the battery life.
Using the CariPRO:
There are only two buttons on the handle. The power button and the button that switches between the different cleaning modes. Cleaning modes you ask. Why yes, this ultrasonic brush has 5 modes – Clean, whitening, massage, gum care and sensitive.
I use the clean and whitening modes the most.
Using the brush is easy and it tickles at first. The brush vibrates rather than spins. The electric toothbrush head and the neck are slim so moving the brush around it your mouth is easy. As you are brushing, the CariPRO pauses and lets you know when to move to the next section of your teeth. Two minutes and you’re done! I actually add 30 seconds in the whitening mode on the front of my upper and lower teeth.
1 toothbrush, 2 brush heads and 1 charging dock : $119

2 toothbrushes, 4 brush heads and 2 charging docks: $199

How does it feel?
My mouth feels clean and fresh. I’ll be honest, I did not think this would be the answer to my plaque problem but it is! I have little to no plaque on the back of my lower teeth and that is just from a couple of weeks of use. Can’t wait to go to the dentist again in January. The dentist will be just as pleased as I am!
I have enjoyed using the CariPRO.
I love that I can brush for 2 minutes and get awesomely clean teeth and I don’t have to watch the time! This brush is definitely several steps up from the brushes I bought for my boys back in the day but it is not cost prohibitive like some electric toothbrushes on the market. If you are in the market for a great, affordable toothbrush you will find it with the CariPRO.
