I've been using this for as long as I can remember. I go to the dentist every three months for cleaning and this brush head has been the bomb. Hardly much cleaning to do when I get there. And no bleeding!!!
Two of my grandkids spent the night with me and brought along their Oral B toothbrushes. While it's admirable that they brush for two minutes, they must not be rinsing the brushes long enough after each use because the little holes were FILLED with black gunk. I would suggest that the design is poor to have these openings in the brush head. Especially for young users. They are 6 and 8 and quite capable of getting themselves ready for bed. I showed them how to thoroughly rinse the brush after use. Hopefully they will do that. I suggested to their mom that she look for a brush without holes to prevent this build-up of germ gunk.

Gigi, it sounds like your family knows how to brush, and we're happy they chose us to join them on their dental adventures! We do want to share that the openings are designed to allow water to flush through the brush head tube, and to also allow air inside. This venting ensures the brush head dries sufficiently after use and also reduces moisture inside the tube. It's so important to always rinse the brush head thoroughly after each use to prevent residue from building up and blocking the openings. It sounds like this is happening with your grandchildren's brushes, and a good, deep clean can remove that residue and prevent it from spreading.
I have a rather old electric Oral-B toothbrush which has always worked well. When I bought these new type brush (FlossActiion with Bacteria Guard Bristles Replacement Brush Heads) it caused my toothbrush to shut off. I don't understand why this isn't working better. I bought 3 brushes at once and using this first one makes me think that I made a poor choice. This isn't exactly like the brush I was using, but the colors of the brush are similar so I bought this. The other brush was not circular. What am I doing wrong or what is wrong with this brush

We'd like to get you back to getting a great clean again, Ann! It's possible that toothpaste residue has built up, causing the brush head to stop working properly. We recommend rinsing your brush head thoroughly under running water and then completely removing the head from the handle. Clean both parts separately under running water and wipe the head and handle both dry before using it again. If there is hardened residue, try soaking the brush head in hot water for 3-4 minutes and then be sure to rinse it. It's also possible that your brush is nearing its end, as our electric brushes typically last 3 to 5 years. So we can give you a clean and healthy smile again, could you give us a call at (800) 566-7252?
