The Arm & Hammer Spinbrush Sonic ProClean Rechargeable Toothbrush uses sonic and micro-sweeping technology to clean your teeth and promote healthy gums. With the power of 16,000 precision micro-sweeps per minute, the Sonic ProClean claims to remove 95% of plaque from hard-to-reach places. The replaceable brush head has multiple angles and bristle levels, which make it easier to reach all parts of your mouth and massage your gums as well. Depending on your individual needs or preferences, you can customize your experience by choosing between 2 cleaning modes - maximum clean or gentle massage. The Sonic ProClean also has a 2-minute timer that lights and pulses in 30-second intervals to make sure you have spent enough time brushing each quadrant of your mouth.
You can purchase the Spinbrush ProClean Sonic Rechargeable Toothbrush online at drugstore.com, cvs.com or walgreens.com for about $30, or you can purchase it at your local drugstore.

Advanced sonic technology, a 2-minute timer and 2 brushing speeds aren't found on many of similarly priced electric toothbrushes.

Power Toothbrush Review
Review submitted: 2013-09-02
When I was young, I always used a manual toothbrush. After five minutes of brushing, I still felt my teeth were not clean enough. That changed when I got my braces on. I knew I had to keep my teeth extra clean, so i began using an electric toothbrush, and lo and behold, my teeth were clean.Things I love about my power toothbrush are that it really gets the job done. My teeth are crooked but the power toothbrush gets into the nooks and crannies. The disposable batteries are extremely convenient and are easy to work with and replace. My mouth always feels clean after just two minutes of brushing.

I am currently using the power toothbrush and with me having bad teeth as is I believe that this toothbrush works very well in that it really cleans your teeth. I really wish that I had had this toothbrush all of my life it is a very great product. I strongly encourage people to buy this tooth brush. It really gets rid of those hard to reach plaque spots. With the spinning action of the toothbrush you can just allow the tooth brush to go to those hard to reach places and clean the plaque right off of the tooth. This really works when trying to get the very back teeth. I had frequent toothaches with the vibration of the brush I feel that it takes the pain right away and I really enjoy it.
