Electric Toothbrushes: Are They Really Worth It?

Who likes going to the dentist? Nobody! Lying there with your mouth wide open, not knowing what is going on, imagining the worst possible stuff!

Even though I've never had anything really bad happen (knock-on-wood), I do want to go in with my best foot forward. And after spending so much time and money on my last visit to the dentist, I promised myself that I was going to "up" my dental care game by making small investments now so I won't have to pay for it in the future.

My dentist recommended a new toothpaste for me to use, and I went and bought a new mouthwash, and dental floss picks. Yes, I admit that most days, I was only brushing; I am either rushing in the morning or too tired at nighttime. Please tell me I'm not the only one?! But now I see how valuable it is.

While researching all the ways I could improve my dental hygiene routine, I kept coming across electric toothbrushes. Could they really make that much of a difference? I highly doubt it...don't they just do the same job as my manual toothbrush but for a much much higher price? And there was no way I could afford one of them.

I was out for lunch with my friend, who has the best teeth ever and brushes after every meal, something I need to take on perhaps. She took her toothbrush out of her bag, and it was soo pretty. Not another new plastic-colored manual toothbrush, it was sleek and slim and looked so expensive.

What is this? I asked her, and she told me it was her new GLEEM electric toothbrush that she was obsessed with. She told me her teeth feel so much cleaner now, and she knows she's brushing the full 2 minutes that dentists recommend.

I looked GLEEM up online, and It claimed to be a slim, lightweight portable electric toothbrush with soft bristles and quiet vibrations. The best part of all, it's only $25. I could definitely afford that. GLEEM offers a 60-day money-back guarantee, so I figured I'd give it a shot.

I ordered one, and the hardest part was trying to decide if I wanted it in the clean white or sleek black color? I chose white because it goes better with my bathroom decor.

It arrived at my door in a neat compact box, and I couldn't wait to try it. I took it out and couldn't believe how lightweight it was!

I turned it on right out of the box and tested it right away. I was beyond impressed. With no loud noise coming from the motor, I could continue listening to Spotify before bed.

It also paused every 30 seconds to alert me to move to a different section of my mouth. I never thought about this timing before, since I'm usually half asleep when brushing my teeth.

I went to bed that night with my teeth feeling slick and clean. This was the perfect addition to my new routine.

I am recommending GLEEM to everyone; how can I not when I'm getting so many compliments on my teeth? It makes a real difference!
