Summary

This is a great set of brushes for a fantastic price. They feature slightly larger yet compact heads, so they cover the entire tooth as well as your gums. As you know, I normally recommend a smaller head, but the size of these is just right, and the bristles in these are very soft, so they are very gentle on your gums, unlike many of other big-headed toothbrushes do.

They come in a variety of colors and with six of them per pack you really get a good deal. Overall you will be very satisfied with these toothbrushes if you feel you are better off with 100% manual brushing.

Pros

  • Great value
  • Gentle on gums
  • Cheek & tongue cleaner
  • Perfect head size

Cons

  • Manual brushing
