Oral-B Crossaction Pro-Health Extra Soft Toothbrush Product Review

August 08, 2011

Dentists recommend to switch out your toothbrush every 2-3 months.  I like trying new toothbrushes to see the advantages and different characteristics but once I find a good toothbrush I like to keep a few handy.  I have very hard to reach wisdom teeth that I must clean every night to avoid tooth decay.  It is very important to have a toothbrush that is able to reach my wisdom teeth and clean them thoroughly.  Without this special feature, I must use a single tuff toothbrush to get back there.  Luckily there are toothbrushes that have this special feature. The Oral-B Crossaction Pro-Health Toothbrush has 2 sets of bristles on the head.  One set is the standard vertical bristles and there is a single tuff of bristles on the top of the head.  The bristles are very firm but I used a very soft toothbrush.  The “perfect angle” was able to reach my hard to reach wisdom teeth! That feature alone won me over.  Not only did it reach my wisdom teeth but the firm/soft bristles removed the majority of the plaque.  My teeth felt very smooth and clean.  Despite the firm bristles, I felt no harshness on my gums.  The bristles were soft and did not bother my gums.  My teeth felt polished as if I had just left a professional cleaning with the hygienist! The toothbrush was able to reach every crevice and all the small spaces between my teeth.  I can instantly see results with minimized plaque buildup.  Great toothbrush, good job Oral-B! I have been converted! Rating: 5 stars out of 5 Crisscross® EXTRA SOFT bristles remove up to 99% of plaque in hard-to-reach areas.* Tight spaces are the easiest places for plaque to build up--and the toughest to clean, since straight-bristle toothbrushes struggle to reach them. But CrossAction® Pro-Health® CrissCross® bristles attack plaque from the perfect angle--an optimal 16°--cleaning better than straight ones. Plus, Pro-Health's tongue cleaner helps remove germs from the tongue.
