View Full Version : Do all the sonicare toothbrushes have the same design to their attachment
05-09-2005, 08:49 AM
I found an old sonicare toothbrush here, and I want to start using it but I want to get some new attachments (ie brushes) for it. Are the attachments universal for all sonicare toothbrushes or do you need to get different kinds for different brushes? I suppose I could just go to walmart or Target and buy some attachments and test them out, but if they don't work I don't know if walmart would want to accept a used toothbrush for a refund.
Mine is years old and the attachments sold today still work with mine. They are called "Standard' when I buy them...though they do make a smaller brush head for those hard to reach areas...
Buy 2 at a time. Cheaper that way.

Sonicare has two different models (http://www.sonicare.com/products/brush_heads/default.asp), the Standard and the Elite, and the replacement heads are not interchangeable.

Pardon me, that should be Advance and Elite.
FYI I've used a Sonicare for years, and swear by it. As to the OP, I don't know.
They do sell the handle (at least I bought one) that dosen't beep every thirty seconds. THAT is a handy feature.

I was thinking of getting one (I have the bad habit of brushing/sawing across with regular toothbrushes, too hard, and it's ruining my exterior fillings), and this thread is the impetus.
Thanks for that link, Fear.
