An easy, safe, effective way to brushFeb 10, 2004
By Tobin Coziahr
"Intergalactic bounty hunter"
Dentists all over the country are recommending the Oral-B electric toothbrush. There are several reasons. It does the work for you, vibrating thousands of times a second, massaging your gums, it lets you clean your teeth without scraping your gums with a toothbrush, which can cause them to recede and bleed, and it reaches between your teeth to catch plaque and germs. This is a wonderful toothbrush, and I recommend it. However, if you want a review of a toothbrush, you'll read the toothbrush page. This is a page for replacement heads.
There's a lot of confusion about replacement heads for Oral B electric toothbrushes on Amazon, and I just want to give you all some facts. There are only three kinds of heads for ALL Oral-B electric toothbrushes. Flexisoft EB17, Extrasoft EB17, and Ortho OD17. I prefer Flexisoft EB17 (The Extrasoft is a little too soft, and the Ortho is overpriced)
What worries me about this listing is that it claims to be the Extrasoft EB17, but the picture of the item shows the Flexisoft EB17. Be warned, Amazon might be confused about this item and selling it incorrectly labeled. On the Extrasoft EB17, all the bristles around the outside edge are the same color. If you're looking for Extrasoft, make sure you find an item where the picture matches the description.

Superb brush head, this is the same as the ones sold for youngstersApr 23, 2006
By D. B. Spalding
Though it might not appear so, these "Extrasoft EB17" brush heads are functionally the same as the "children's" heads sold with various cartoon characters on the package. If you find them listed for about $5 per brush head, that's a good bargain (I've seen 1-2 sold for $18).
Note that the standard adult Flexisoft EB17 has dual colors, while the Extrasoft heads are all blue. Ensure that the description states "extra-soft" and the illustration is the all-blue bristle head.

Pricey but worth it!Sep 18, 2006

The extra soft is much more gentle than the standard soft. Noticeable difference, particularly if you have sensitive teeth
They wear fairly well though not quite as long as the regular soft brushes. This is probably because with electric toothbrushes you don't use as much pressure on your teeth.
Another option to get them inexpensively is to use a 20% off coupons at Bed Bath and Beyond which carries all the Oral B heads

Great for sensitive gumsAug 09, 2007

This soft head is the only one I can use for my tender gums. Other ones cause discomfort and may wear away my gums. I need soft brushes because unknown to me I wore away gum tissue by over-brushing.

Nice productJun 25, 2010
By Kiarash Z. Aghaie
I was using Oral-B "Precision Clean" heads for a long time. I used to buy this type, because this was the only choice that I could find in the retail stores. Usually, "Dual Clean" heads also were available, but I do not like them. They are just so big. I wanted to switch to another type, and I did a little research. I found Oral-B "Sensitive" heads, and I found good reviews on this product. I am using this heads for a few weeks now. I bought this product because it probably has the highest bristle density, and the bristles are extra soft so they are very gentle on the gum. In my opinion, they do a very good job. I feel that they clean better than "Precision Clean" heads. I use HydroFloss after brushing. When I was using "Precision Clean," I used to still see some stuff coming out of the area between my teeth during cleaning with HydroFloss. However, this stopped when I switched to "Sensitive" heads. I feel that "Sensitive" head is cleaning better. It is also more gentle on my gum.
