I am normally a manual toothbrush user, but my dentist would prefer that I use a powered brush. Want to see a cool video on the evolution of toothbrushes, and how manual brushes are outdated? Check out this video. So, I was more than happy to try out the Sonicare PowerUp toothbrush. This is a battery powered brush that is also super affordable. You can get it for under $20 at Walmart!
The brush is easy to operate with a simple push of a button. It also fits nicely in the hand is not overly heavy. For being so affordable, it also seems quite durable. I would not have guessed that it is under $20. It uses two AA batteries, so you don’t need to worry abut charging it. That also makes it easy to travel with.
I used the brush for a week and got noticeable results. Sonicare notes that you can get a month’s worth of brush strokes in a day with this toothbrush and I imagine that is about right. The powered brush definitely cleans better than a manual brush. The Sonicare PowerUp is also good for the gums, since I found that it could clean along the gum line a lot better than a manual toothbrush. For me, that is an important factor.
Another bonus of the brush is that it has a removable and replaceable head. So, you don’t have to buy a whole new brush when the head wears out. Simply just head out to Walmart and grab a replacement.
