I just wanted to throw out a plug for Sonicare toothbrushes. Last year we had a number of problems with cavities when visiting the dentist. We have fairly regular brushing and flossing habits but apparently our normal tooth brushes (Oral-B, etc) weren't getting the job done. I spoke with a friend and he said that after he and his wife started using Sonicare brushes, they never had cavities again. I had been thinking about getting a pair of these brushes for some time and his comments really solidified that.

Now it's been about 9 months and we just had another visit to the dentist for a cleaning and x-rays. He reported no new cavities or problems for either of us. I have 2 old fillings that need replacement (over 10 years old) but other than that - really great results. Hopefully these good results continue for some years ahead! We've found the travel case that comes with these brushes to be really useful and we've had no problem traveling nationally and internationally with them. The only thing that we would change is to make the charger work from 110-230 V like many other bathroom appliances already do (electric razors, etc). Our exact model is the Sonicare Elite e9500 (
