When I last wrote about my teeth cleaning experience at my dentist’s office, several people threw a flag after spotting the photo of the Spinbrushes used by my dear wife Karen and I.
Including a dentist I know — not my dentist — who wrote on my Facebook page how the old electric brushes were so worn that new heads were needed immediately. They’re doing no good, he warned. Mine, especially, was squished and squashed. I press harder.
Well, our week away to the Happy Cottage in Cape Cod came shortly thereafter and we brought our travel hand-drivens.
Upon return, it was back to the old ‘spinners.
But shopping this week, we past the tooth care aisle, and there we were with Karen explaining to me again how Spinbrush had discontinued our model, so what did we want to do about it?
SoniCare came to my mind as the brand that several people had recommended back on my last post.
We read boxes and compared prices and bought two.
They’re identical, but Karen came up with the idea of also buying small colored stickers to put at the bottom of the bases so we can identify them.
Lo and behold, they were charged already, and Karen used hers immediately. Different, she said. Bumblebees in her mouth, she said.
I looked mine over, and liked the small head. It’ll fit the way way back. I dotted it with Colgate Total Tartar Control. My mouth hummed like a hive.
Have you ever had a household favorite gadget have a necessary replaceable part get discontinued, and if so, what was it and what did you do?
What brand and kind of brush do you use for your teeth? What’s your favorite toothpaste, and why?
