This kind of power toothbrush has a small, round brush head that oscillates back and forth in a circular motion to help remove plaque. A small brush head can be very good for cleaning the hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. When using an oscillating-rotating toothbrush, you should gently move the brush head from tooth to tooth, letting the brush do the cleaning.

    I didn’t know that there were two kinds of power toothbrushes. It seems to me like the oscillating-rotating brush would be more effective. What I really need is one of the brushing timers you mentioned since I’m usually in a rush and don’t brush my teeth as long as I should.
