powerupI’m proud of many things. My smart and beautiful daughter, my ability to remain mostly calm during one of her meltdowns, my homemade chicken pot pie recipe. I’m also proud of my lifelong track record when it comes to oral hygiene. Zero cavities – that’s right, zero – for the first 30 years of my life.

And then pregnancy happened. As many moms know, your teeth can sometimes be affected during pregnancy thanks to alterations in body chemistry. That’s how I got my first cavity. Well, that and all the ice cream and brownies I ate during those nine months.

I still take good care of my teeth, which is why I was excited when I was asked to review their Sonicare PowerUp toothbrush. The battery-powered toothbrush is a brand new offering from Sonicare and is available for just $19.99 at Bed, Bath & Beyond in the “Personal Care” section located near the checkout counters.1-26I’m normally an old-fashioned manual-powered toothbrush kind of gal, but I’ve been wanting to try a battery-powered toothbrush for a while. Long story short: I’m no longer an old-fashioned manual-powered toothbrush kind of gal!

The Sonicare PowerUp toothbrush is powerful, but not in an overpowering way that you might expect a powered toothbrush to be. It makes brushing soooo much easier and it really did leave my teeth feeling cleaner than I might get with a manual toothbrush. That extra clean feeling is due, in large part, to the Sonicare PowerUp delivering “a month’s worth of brush strokes in a day.”

It also comes with a one-year warranty and when the brush head wears out, you can buy a replacement head wherever Sonicare PowerUp toothbrushes are sold. Oh, and here’s the best part: The Sonicare PowerUp automatically shuts off after two minutes, so you know exactly how long you need to brush to get a good cleaning. Needless to say, my days of using an old manual toothbrush are over.

For more information about the Sonicare PowerUp, be sure to visit Sonicare on Twitter and Facebook. Feel free to also check out this cool video about the evolution of the toothbrush. And finally, you can find out more about my Bed, Bath & Beyond shopping experience in my Google+ album!

  17. I love the Sonicare! I got one for me and the kids because I love it so much. Dental hygiene is really important to us and why not make it easier with a great toothbrush? I’m doing it if I can – I got sick of hearing about how great it was and plunged in! Glad I did it, too!

  18. I had to come back to show this post to a friend she was just asking me about this brand.

  19. I like the idea that it’s timed because I actually think I brush WAY too long! But I like how thorough this is.

  20. I have been wanting to try one of these for a long time! Glad it’s hear a great product!!!

  28. I tried an electric toothbrush probably 8+ years ago and all the bristles were the same length and stiffness and it didn’t feel lke it cleaned as well as a manual so I haven’t tried any since then but the have improved SO much that I reall need to try again and the sonicare powerup sounds great!

  32. I know electric toothbrushes make my kids brush more. They are a wonderful invention.

  33. I need to try this brand for my son.

  34. I like all the different colors it comes in. I’ve never tried one before because I’m afraid of how my sensitive teeth would react with the vibration, but I may give this one a go.

  35. I don’t think my teeth would enjoy this, they aren’t very strong (so don’t count me as an entry). Always wanted to try one though, just don’t think I can now.

  36. Got one toothbrush like this though it’s not of the same brand. Want to use it soon.

    Id love this for my son he has CP and sensory issues

  41. I just went to the dentist today for a 6 month cleaning and they told me I have the beginning stages of gum disease in some areas even though I brush regularly. I will be looking into a brush like this to see if it helps!

  42. Wow – I’m an old-fashioned girl too and never had the interest in a battery-powered toothbrush – but now you have me interested. But do you really keep it in your mouth the full 2 minutes? That seems so long…..especially if it’s brushing every spot in your mouth.

  43. Jennifer Van Huss says:

    Im old fashion and like a standard tooth brush. My kids on the other hand love spin brushes!

  44. I would love the to try the sonicare toothbrush. Like Ashley, I have the beginning stages of gum disease as well, and so I’m in the market for a toothbrush that would help with that. 🙂

  45. I am dying to try this. My teeth have gotten awful since my last child and I need all the help I can get.

  46. I drink a ton of coffee and that would probably help prevent stains on my teeth.

  47. Love that you can get a replacement brush if you need one. Very cool!

  48. I’ve been using an electric Sonicare for a couple of years and love it. I’ve never used a bettery operated one, though.

  49. I’m a huge fan of these toothbrushes!

  50. I have always wanted to try electrical toothbrushes, but never bought any. Love the colours they have!

  51. I haven’t used an electric toothbrush in a long time – it seems that they have made some real improvements since I first tried them! Will definitely be trying these out.

  52. Neat looking toothbrush! Thanks for sharing, will check this out. Thanks for the giveaway, too!

  53. My girlfriend has one and LOVES hers — haven’t made the jump yet but will soon.

  54. That sounds like an awesome toothbrush for only twenty bucks! I will definitely have to try it out! Thanks for the giveaway 😉

  55. I need to try one of these!

  56. I don’t think I’ve ever used an electric toothbrush! Now I need to pick one up.

  57. I used to use one ages ago and I remember what a difference it made.

  58. Oh that’s funny, that’s how/when I got my first cavity too – when I got pregnant!! Pregnancy destroyed my teeth!! Anyway, thanks for all of this info, I’d love to try the sonicare. My husband has one, but now I need one.

  59. I don’t have this and would like to try one. Thank you.

  60. it’s really good to know about the warranty. My daughter has been wanting one and I was afraid it would break quickly. I am going to go ahead and surprise her with one for the first day of school. everyone needs a clean pair of chompers for school right?

  61. We’ve been looking at electric toothbrushes – these look awesome!

  62. I have an old Sonicare toothbrush… I’d love to upgrade to the newest version!

  63. Those are some great looking toothbrushes. I can color coordinate them with my bathroom LOL! (just a bit OCD). Can’t wait to try them out.

  64. Love those toothbrushes! We use them all the time 🙂

  65. I had a chance to review this toothbrush also and I fell in love. It makes your teeth feel dentist clean.

  66. That is so great that you went so long without a cavity…gosh, I wish I could say the same. I think that 2 minute timer feature is going to be my favorite thing about it.
