Oral B vs Sonicare

Lately I’ve noticed my patients who use an Oral B electric toothbrush seem to have less calculus & better tissue health, than those using the Sonicare. Can anyone else agree? Just curious as to which is really best to recommend for my patients

In my opinion, which toothbrush does better depends on the patients brushing technique. I’ve personally seen better results with the Sonicare. A Sonicare basically does the work for you by just brushing regularly. When using an Oral-B, a person must go around every tooth. So it depends on how a person brushes, on an individual basis. Not a definitive answer because it really comes down to the individual persona and brushing technique.

I agree that it all comes down to what brush a pt will use. For me, personally, I prefer Sonicare 100%, although I’d agree that they clean comparable and far better than a manual. For some reason I feel cleaner using Sonicare vs Oral B. Also, Sonicare says the patented way their brush moves whips the toothpaste/saliva/water in your mouth into a foam which can push fluid btwn your teeth to clean beyond where the bristles actually touch. Oral B is more mechanical and “clacky” sounding, which I don’t care for. Some pts have said the vibration of the Sonicare are too much and they don’t like it, so I usually recommend splurging for one that has the 3 speeds so you have the option of turning the speed down if you need.
