But that's a red herring, because what we're talking about is a mere
$100 for an ultrasonic toothbrush. Have you ever used a Phillips
Sonicare and compared it to a $3 electric brush? Gotten any opinions
from dentists or other dental professionals? Do you think there is
no difference between say a Craftsman wrench that costs $10 and a
cheap Chinese wrench that costs $1? Compared to all the other
healthcare costs, this one is miniscule and the more we learn, the
more critical good cleaning is.

My $17 Oral-B "Vitality" rechargable toothbrush uses the same heads as my wife's
$70+ Oral-B model. She swears that her toothbrush has much more "power" (I
think she is describing torque) than mine. They sound about the same when they
are running so I suspect there is minimal if any difference in speed.
My every 6 mo. dental exams are excellent, with less than normal plaque
build-up. She uses the same dentist and dental hygienist, and her checkups show
more than normal plaque build-up.
I think that your (a)diet, (b)genetic control of mouth enzyme composition and
quantity, and (c) care and frequency of flossing and brushing will affect your
oral hygiene far more than the price of your toothbrush.

I should have mentioned that our dentist strongly recommends using an electric
toothbrush because he says it provides as much effectiveness in 2 minutes as
proper use of a manual toothbrush provides in about 10 minutes (and very few
people have the discipline to spend 10 minutes 2-3x/day brushing their teeth).

He is trying to be nice to you. Leave him alone.
YOu have a considerate roommate who could be a lifetime friend. You
have a choice of being a nice guy yourself, like he was trying to be,
Or showing what migbht be the real you, and you'll never be more than
roommates if you do.
