If you’re like me and spent many of your teen years wearing braces, taking care of your hard-earned smile is probably pretty high on the list of priorities. If you don’t remember those palate expanders, wire retainers and the dreaded elastic bands (not to mention the $$$) then lucky you. But if you feel my pain, then you understand why it’s practically required that I keep my teeth in tip-top shape. This means frequent trips to the dentist for cleanings, religiously wearing my nightly retainer and flossing (still need to work on this one). And of course, using an electric toothbrush.
Anyone who’s ever seen the inside of a dentist’s office knows how highly they espouse the benefits of using an electric toothbrush, so by this point in my early 30s, I feel like I’ve tried them all. But while I’ve appreciated some aspects of the various options out there, I’ve never really loved brushing with an electric. I’m always inevitably reaching for my ol’ manual brush on those nights I forgot to charge it, or I’m just feeling extra lazy. That is, until now.
My discovery? Swedish brand FOREO’s new silicone electric toothbrush, the ISSA 3. Since finally finding an electric toothbrush I’ll actually use feels like kind of a big deal, I felt compelled to share this FOREO ISSA 3 review with everyone who might be in the same boat. Here’s why it’s my new holy grail.
