Thank you to WaterPik for providing me with product, free of charge, in exchange for this honest review. All opinions are 100% my own.

For the 16+ years my husband and I have been together, he has chewed tobacco. I have tried EVERYTHING to get him to quit. He told me he would quit when: he graduated from college, when we bought our first house, when we had our first child, when we had our second child, when he started a new job, when we bought our second home…the milestone list goes on. I believe he wants to quit, I just think the task is overwhelming to him so he hasn’t followed through. If I could do this for him, I would in a heartbeat, but I can’t. What I can do, is make sure he has the best oral care products available.

For our review, WaterPik sent my husband a Sensonic Professional Plus Toothbrush.

The WaterPik’s Sensonic Professional Plus Toothbrush is made with top of the line sonic technology. When compared to the Sonicare FlexCare toothbrush, researchers found it to have 25% faster speed. It also proved to be 29% more effective in removing plaque and 26% more effective in improving gum health.

The Sensonic was designed with an ergonomic handle for comfort. It has two speeds and a 2-minute timer to guide you through your suggested brushing time. The Sensonic comes with three extra-soft bristle toothbrush heads, hygienic brush head covers and a travel case.

After my husband had used his new Sensonic Toothbrush a few times, I asked him what his thoughts were. He said he liked having two speeds. He starts on slow and after a minute turns on the high speed. I asked if he liked the two-minute timer. He said, “OH, is that what that is?!” I asked if his mouth felt cleaner than it had with his other toothbrush. He said yes. He went on to say that he really liked how the Sensonic massaged his gums.

I really appreciate WaterPik helping me provide my husband with the tools to care for his oral health. Hopefully some day soon, my husband will be able to quit chewing.

    This sounds like a very good toothbrush. I have been looking for one that will actually help my family’s oral health. From your review I believe this one could be it. Thank you for your review.

    I had an old WaterPik and have wanted to get something like this. Yes I’d use the slower speed if I’m just waking up; it seems gentler. As I nurse who has worked in surgery and seen in person what cancerous organs and tissues look like when removed and the heartache it has caused, I can’t see how anyone would use tobacco in any form. You can’t make someone quite though. Enough said.

    Oh my goodness, chewing is such a nasty habit! Way to go for being such a supportive wife! 🙂 This sounds like an amazing toothbrush! I use a crest spinbrush and couldn’t imagine using a regular one now. I just don’t feel as squeaky clean after, plus it feels weird not having that buzz lol. I definitely need one of these!

  • It’s always so difficult to figure out which ones actually do what they say, thanks for giving us a real opinion! Makes it so much easier to choose!
