Bristles are softer than original Sonicare brush. Bristles are trimmed less precisely than authentic Sonicare brush heads. But these don't seem to affect cleaning performance. (I notice that more brand-name manual toothbrushes have the softer nylon bristles. Don't know whether this is an intentional product improvement or cutting corners by the manufacturer.)
I bought these instead of the sonicare sensitive brush heads I usually buy because of the price. My gums are very sensitive and I was hoping these would be as gentle as the sonicare brush heads. I did not find them to be soft and gentle on my gums. My spouse said he would use them and I will go back to sonicare sensitive.
I will use this type of toothbrush as long as they make it! I’ve owned every brand and used electronic toothbrushes for years. Sonicare was my former favorite. This Otal B is less than half the price and twice as nice!
