1170

Dentist told me to get an electric tooth brush.

Found this as the most reasonably priced one without silly Bluetooth features.
Says 1-3 weeks dispatch but mine is due 26/10/21.

Other colours are $79 at Amazon and $100 at jb-hifi.

Same motor as the more expensive ones with the built in timer but no pressure or positioning sensor or Bluetooth.

Dark blue only, no travel case.

Also available at the shaver shop thanks Emperor Nasi Goreng
Or $48 via shaver shop eBay using after pay thanks CC123

Sonic (vibration) vs osscilation
Dentist is adamant that oscillating were better than vibrating. She is an Oral Health Therapist - BHthSc that specialises in proactive care for adults and children.
I found a Randomized Controlled Trial:
A 12-week clinical comparison of an oscillating-rotating power brush versus a marketed sonic brush with self-adjusting technology in reducing plaque and gingivitis

Conclusion
An advanced oscillating-rotating power toothbrush produced substantial, statistically superior reductions in plaque and gingivitis via multiple outcome measures compared to a new sonic toothbrush after both four weeks and 12 weeks of tooth brushing.

    Thanks OP! Seems like they are price matching Shavershop which is also going for $58

      Nice. I'll add that.

      I originally thought it was an error on Amazon's part as it was on back order.

      Guess not

    • Thanks Emperor, bought one!

      Thanks, bought one with afterpay.

    • Says code already applied for another order.

      • When I try, there isn't an option to pay with Afterpay.

    • cheers

    Great toothbrush, good battery life.

    Two things missing compared to more expensive models that i miss are:
    - battery indicator (it's just all or nothing)
    - sometimes i forget if it's been 2mins brushing already lol

    • +3

      It vibrates 4 times after it's been 2 mins. How do you mean you forget?

      Great toothbrush, my only disappointment was that after about 2 years of use the blue rubber coating has worn out. But toothbrush still works fine.

      • I zone out when brushing my teeth, was nice before when I had an app or that digital clock to see haha

        • Seeing how 2 min is the lowest recommended brushing time, anything over 2 min is just a bonus. 😀

    These also regularly go on sale at Coles, have seen it half price reduced to $35 at least 3 times in the past couple of months, bought 2 for my kids.

    • +1

      You do realise that you can just get your kids to use two heads instead of two toothbrushes

      • +1

        Sounds like a recipe for sibling fights to me

        This!
        The travel case has space for 2 heads and 1 handle. I got called a tight arse for doing this, but it's by design.

    • +3

      Pretty sure Coles doesn't stock the pro models? They only have the lower models.

    • Sure it is the same model?

    • +2

      You might be getting confused with the models (Oral B has insanely confusing model numbers). They only sell up to the 700 series. The 2000 isn't sold by coles. Main advantage of the 2000 is the pressure sensor and lion battery.

        🦁🔋

        😆

      • Woolies has them half price at the moment but I think the pro 800 and pro 1500 are the only “pro” models they sell…then again I’m not convinced there’s a tonne of difference anyway

        • +4

          The 800 is NiMH, while the 1500 and 2000 Pro 2 are both Li-Ion, with about twice the oscillating speed and easily five times the battery capacity. The battery is also vastly more resilient - after three years the NiMH batteries are toast, you're lucky to get a single good brush out of them, while the Li-Ion versions will have a bit over half the capacity they started with, but that's still a good week off charge with a couple of full power uses a day. We have an 800 and 1500 series in our bathroom, no one else uses the 1500 because my wife hates it (too strong for her mouth, it makes her teeth rattle) and the kids say it hurts their gums. So the 1500 gets charge for one night every fortnight, the 800 lives on the charging block. They might not like it, but I'm never going back to a NiMH toothbrush ever again…

    • Coles doesn't sell this model

    • +2

      Ah yes, you guys are right. It is the Pro 100 model that Coles sells for 70 marked down to 35. I have given this deal a like then 😃

      And yes, I need to buy two as my two kids brush together and hold each other accountable to the 2 mins brushing haha 🤣

      • Woolies has the pro 800 and pro 1500 half price at the moment

    • Coles doesn't have this model. The ones you see are Pro 100. This one is much better.

    Currently the base model Oral B is $19.99 (down from $49.99) at Chemist Warehouse, for anyone unsure about the jump to electric.

      Horrible NiCd batteries tho

      I upgraded to the pro 2000 after using that model for years and I wish I’d done it sooner

    • +1

      base model Oral B

      I’ve found the higher models are a lot better at cleaning than the base models.

      • I'd hope so for the money, but currently using the cheap one, and it does do what it says on the box.

        • +6

          Mate let me tell you, after using the sub $100 models for two decades and then getting a Pro 1500 for $42 last year, the difference is chalk and cheese. Do you like the way the lower models seem to feel tired and slow if they're not used straight off the charging base? Do you hate the fact you have to chuck them and buy a new one every couple of years because they just won't hold enough charge? Do you want a toothbrush that actually properly cleans your teeth? Seriously, when you go to the 1500 or above with the Li-Ion battery, it has good, strong power every time you use it for weeks off the charger. It has more than twice the oscillating speed and significantly more torque, so it brushes faster, which means more passes across the surface of your teeth - the difference for me was it literally changed the colour of my teeth, because they'd been gradually going yellow over the years, and after a couple of weeks of use that yellow appearance disappeared. I honestly thought just the same as you, and the dentist would always say there wasn't much difference between the base and more expensive models, but from my experience the difference is absolutely huge - I certainly won't be going back, and if you look out for deals, it doesn't even need to cost all that much more for the 1500.

      • More than twice the oscillating speed, significant more deliverable power (basically torque).

    bought, who wants my old toothbrush? its vintage

      Mint condition or mint flavour?

  • If chemist warehouse ebay has lower price than Amazon, OP do you mind adding it to the title?

      Sure, just send me the chemist warehouse link

      Because as far as I know it's $70 there

      • Link is in CC123’s comment.
        Sorry I meant Shavershop ebay store.

        • Yeah mate

          $48 via ShaverShop eBay(ebay.com.au) with AFTERPAY10 (need to check out using AfterPay to use the code)

          That is shaver shop, not chemist warehouse.

          I have already included that in the body of the post and credited CC123.

          I am not adding it to the title as it requires after pay. I feel like that makes it different and fairly targeted.

          Feel free to create your own deal.

    This has pressure sensor with red light indicator

  • +4

    The next model up is worth considering only because they finally replaced that stupid rubber handle that disintegrates and separates from the toothbrush over time.

    Their range is half price at Woolworths currently too, the 1500 is there for 65 and has a pressure sensor.

      I can't find how the 1500 is better value for an extra $7?

      • You can walk into a store and get it, some prefer that.

  • +4

    I bought this at the last deal, when it was $48. Honestly, I can't recommend it.

    Compared to my experience with a much cheaper brush from Amazon, this model feels incredibly unrefined, and bulky, and its unnecessarily loud. Anecdotally, I'd say cleaning performance is on par.

    Adding insult to injury, Shaver Shop moderated my honest review and prevented it from being published. So, take 5 star reviews on their site with a grain of salt.

    • +1

      Hmm that’s dodgy. Bad Shaver Shop.

  • I have similar model but battery is dead. Can we replace the battery or buy a new one?

  • Thanks. My partner ended up getting this for $43 via Amazon without prime - not repeatable though (via re-issued Amazon credit by support).

    There was an issue with the payment method for the order - not enough credit on card but unable to update payment details. So Amazon support provided similar credit to place identical order with different card, but the once off credit somehow ended up including additional credit for free shipping from first order.

  • Anyone know if these have the soft rubber handle that goes mouldy or is it a hard plastic handle?

    • I believe you'll find the answer to your question above

      • Which comment in particular please?

      • I'm guessing you were referring to pipe and pizzaguy's comments, thanks for the heads up as I'm in Sunday mode lol.

  • Why does it say it comes with a AA battery? I thought this is rechargeable?

    I have been using the vitality. Does anyone know how does the cleaning compare?

    I previously had the iq5000 and didn’t notice any difference with the cheaper vitality

    • Lazy copy paste from another listing.

      Likely same if not similar performance

  • I recently purchased this model from Amazon based on the post and whilst it does provide a much better clean, that cleaning power comes from an incredibly loud motor compared to the lower vitality models I’ve used before. You wouldn’t want to brush your teeth late at night or early morning if your partner was sleeping nearby, even your neighbours, as it WILL wake them! Would I purchase again, probably not simply due to the noise level.

    • Yes it's so loud

  • Delivery keeps getting delayed

    • Not surprising with 2300 clicks I guess
