Electric toothbrush fell in toilet

My sonicare toothbrush just fell in the toilet bowl. It wasn't in there for more than a second or two. I threw out the removeable brushhead. I ran the body under hot water and wiped it down several times with bleach, but to use it again, in my mouth of all places? I'm not sure. It does still work and would be expensive to replace, but it was in toilet water. My question then is, should I continue to use it, and is there anything else I should or can do to further decontaminate it? Thanks [more inside]

Ultrasonic toothbrushes: Which has least noise/vibration?

Which ultrasonic toothbrush has the least noise and vibration? This is for my 12-lb dog, who has a correspondingly small head. He's already great about letting me brush with a manual toothbrush, which I do nightly, but still had some periodontal pockets at his recent dental cleaning. I think I can get him to accept an ultrasonic one if I introduce it very gradually, but I want to get the gentlest one possible. Related issues inside. [more inside]

Should I replace the brush head now or can I wait?

Replacing Sonicare Toothbrush Battery

I own a Sonicare Toothbrush. The battery has now died. Phillips used to replace these toothbrushes for about 75% of their original cost. However, Phillips now has suspended this practice. Would anyone know of a small independent company that would repair my Sonicare by replacing the dead battery? Thanks in advance.

Sonicare Vibrates Toothpaste Right Off of It ...

I recently bought a Sonicare. I like how it makes my teeth feel cleaner than they had been, and anecdotal evidence from others suggests it's going to help my gums. But I really can't figure out how the toothpaste works with this thing. [more inside]

My Sonicare-fu is weak

Should a Sonicare toothbrush be used instead of, or in combination with regular brushing? Also, what is the best technique for using the Sonicare?
