Dec 15, 2020 - Mar 16, 2023
  • Excellent replacements

    Why pay what Oral B would like to charge you for essentially the same product? I wouldn't be surprised if they come from the same chinese factory.

  • Doesn't Last As Long As Original - Works Fine

    Generic toothbrush heads seem to be pretty similar, this one included. Initially they work pretty well but fade quickly. I put this brush head on my toothbrush the same time I put an original name brand head on my wife's toothbrush. For me, I only felt like I was getting a good clean brush for about a month. After that, I ended up brushing longer to achieve the same clean. The bristles just start feeling flimsy way before my wife's brush did (that one lasted closer to 3 months). The tradeoff seems to be that you can get cheaper brush heads you just have to change them more often, which might negate the savings. I also tend to prefer the bristle layout on the original ones too, but I don't know that they are more effective. I will continue to use the name brand ones when I can get them at a reasonable price and maybe these as a backup.

  • Floss action, it is not

    I was expecting this to be similar to the oral-b floss action heads, but it is not. Also didn't last as long. Switched back to the original.

    • Stops spinning with the slightest pressure

      The tooth brush heads stop spinning with the slightest pressure placed on them. This then makes then toothbrushes that vibrate. I simply took my finger and gently touched the brush while it was running and the head stops spinning.

      These replacement heads are for my Oral-B 5000. They are softer than any of the previous replacement heads. They clean my teeth well and it looks like they are well made.

    • Low quality

      These toothbrush heads aren't up to the quality of any other that I've used. It's been less than a month, (keeping in mind that I only use my electric toothbrush at night. In the morning, I use a manual one.) and it's already gone white like I need to replace it. Also, I don't press down too hard. My toothbrush warns me, so I've been conditioned out of that for a long time. On top of that, my teeth don't feel as clean. I've had to try brushing 3x a day instead, and even then, my teeth don't feel as clean. These are a hard pass from me.

    • Worst Toothbrush I Have Ever Owned!!

      This is the worst toothbrush I have ever owned!! After 3 months of use my teeth are stained yellow. I can scrape film off of my teeth after brushing for 2 minutes. I have an Oral b electric brush and will be switching back to their toothbrush heads.

    • Don't buy waste of money!

      Doesn't last really long it last only 15-20 days after it will lose color, movement head drops by 90% may because internal is plastic as compared to metal in original oral B.
      useless you end up paying more!
      as mentioned by other users too.

    • Product Sucks Do Not Buy

      Normally I like the price point and quality of Amazon products. But that is not true with these heads. They suck. The stop spinning after about a week.
      Additionally Amazon will not let me return an unopened pack that I recently purchased.
      Do not purchase this product.

    • Comparable to higher price items and the soft bristles are easy on the teeth

      Truly soft as I ordered the soft bristles. The brand is very comparable to higher-priced items. However why pay more when you get the quality well while spending less money? I'm satisfied with the quality of the toothbrushes and the fact that they come in a multi-pack which is great for my family.
