Reader Poll: Manual or Electric Toothbrush?

Reader Poll: Manual or Electric Toothbrush?

While at Target over the weekend, I eventually ended up in the toothbrush aisle searching for a particular brand/model I tend to horde whenever I can find it (I'm going to be greedy and not share, as it's already hard to find). I also looked over the newer Soniccare FlexCare ProSeries, which is the meanest tooth cleaning solution out there and personally recommended by my dentist friend. I have an older model, but also use an old fashioned manual toothbrush half the time (strangely I prefer brushing with a manual in the evening), and I began to wonder how many people out there use either solution or both:

My 6 year old Soniccare is looking kind of worn out and the battery charge dissipates a lot quicker than it used to, so I'm pondering the possibility of upgrading to the Soniccare FlexCare ProSeries, especially after my dentist friend said it really does help clean teeth better than a manual or even the older models. But dang if the new model isn't expensive. I guess it is time to save up, since my pearly whites are more valuable than any green in my wallet.
