I’m not really a fan of electric toothbrushes so I generally stick to a manual but I’m a little bit of a germophobe so when I was introduced to the idea of Foreo’s Issa silicone toothbrush I had to try it. I’ve honestly never seen a toothbrush even remotely like this one. Since it’s silicone, it’s a lot more anti-bacterial than any other toothbrush I’ve used.
The Issa has eight speeds to choose from and it reminds you to change areas every thirty seconds while you’re brushing and to stop brushing at two minutes. My gums almost always bleed when I brush my teeth but the Issa is so gentle that I haven’t had that happen a single time in the few months I’ve been using it. My teeth feel like they’ve just been cleaned at the dentist when I’m done using it. I haven’t noticed a difference in whiteness but my teeth just feel so much cleaner overall.
You charge it through a USB post and one charge is supposed to last six months. Unfortunately my Issa must have some kind of defect because it’s never held a charge for more than a week. At first I thought it was because I was leaving it in a metal toothbrush holder but when I leave it on the counter the same thing happens. That said, it’s worth it to me to charge it more often because of the results I get. Brushing also seems a little more fun with the Issa.

While it’s quite a bit pricier than a regular toothbrush (around $200) the benefits outweigh the negatives. If you have sensitive teeth and gums, are a little bit of a germaphobe or just want a toothbrush that’s effective but you don’t have to throw out every three months (you change the brush head once a year), you need to give Foreo’s Issa a try. It’ll completely change how you think about brushing your teeth.
