Stumbled across a number of discounted Cross-Action and other ones in the last few days. Below is what I've found on Mysupermarket.com

Further savings can be gleaned by checking the price per head and loyalty offers. Also, there are smaller quantities on offer and Oral B toothbrushes at 50/60% off... in some cases.

    Really useful - thanks!

    I'd always prefer people to get the 'proper' ones from a reputable place than counterfeit or generic ones from the internet or places like poundland. A 'copy' head with too harsh bristles can do quite a bit of damage long-term.

    1. Get recommendations from friends/family/neighbours/etc.
    2. Once you have a short-list, VISIT the practices - dont just phone. Go on the pretext of getting a Practice Leaflet.
    3. Assess the helpfulness of the staff and the level of the facilities.
    4. Only book initial appointment when you find a place you are happy with.

    Wowcher and groupon usually have these on sale - I've never tried them but they're supposed to be the original ones

    I just had a google, and there are the proper Oral B ones - and there are 'Oral B compatible' ones.

    48 heads for £14.98 were the cheapest I saw!!

    If you value your gums, I would avoid that sort like the plague!

    Thank you for the price comparisons OP, I always stock up when I see a good offer in store somewhere, but was wondering, from a user point of view is there anything to be gained by using one of the variations C/A Cross Action; P/C Precision Clean; F/A Floss Action; S/U Sensi Ultrathin.

    Toothsmith - if you see this I would welcome your opinion (as always).

    There may be a difference between the cross action and the precision clean in a lab test somewhere - but in practical everyday toothbrushing, they do pretty much the same thing, and personal preference would be all that seperates them. My hygienists tend to recommend the cross action one as the go-to toothbrush head. I would also lump the floss action one in with that lot too, and personally, that is my favourite one. 'Floss Action' is a misnomer though. It does not replace thorough use of proper interdental brushes to clean in between your teeth - which is still vitally important with electric toothbrushes as well as manual ones.

    Oral be do do an 'interdental' brush which looks like a trimmed down head

    https://www.dentaldirect.co.uk/oral-b-interspace-power-tip-replacement-brush-heads-twin-pack.html?gclid=Cj0KCQiAgKzwBRCjARIsABBbFugGWFw-1rJBwcBjyn8G0lM-hXX9L65ZopxfrwJOshdzdEl1Ai49v1EaAiccEALw_wcB

    This is better than nothing in patients with grip or dexterity problems - and it's probably more efficient than things like water jets - but there is no substitute to Tepes or Clean betweens and time for effective interdental cleaning.

    The Sensi Ultra-thin is a head designed for those with sensitive teeth where over-brushing or acid erosion of the teeth is the cause.

    It is a much gentler head, and less likely over time to wear away much more tooth substance. The downside of this head is that it will wear out more quickly, so will need replacing more often. It is good if you have the need for it though.

    Good question. I started looking for offers on Cross Action brush heads after using and being disappointed by Superdrug's universal brush heads. I can only say my teeth feel cleaner with Cross Action brush heads but have never had the money nor inclination to try the others...

    Robert Dyas were doing 2 for £5 I think, but I don't know if this was a one-off or ongoing.
