This toothbrush is the perfect combination of manual and electric toothbrushes. It cleans my teeth better than any toothbrush I've ever used...electric toothbrushes included. After brushing with the Oral B Pulsar Toothbrush, I have the same clean feeling I get after a visit to the dentist! The pulsing action is gentle yet effective. In the past, some electric toothbrushes I've used have vibrated so much, it's rattled my head and given me a headache. This one does not do that. I have a tendency to brush too hard when using manual toothbrushes and it irritates my gums. With this toothbrush, I use a softer touch and brush right over my gums with no irritation. And my teeth still get sparkling clean. My favorite feature of this is the rubbery bristles. They get between my teeth so beautifully, when I'm done brushing, it's almost unnecessary to floss. All in all, this is a fantastic toothbrush. Good pricepoint, fantastic features, and it leaves my teeth with a "squeaky clean" feeling. I would recommend this toothbrush to anyone!
