There is no question that it's very important to find an effective toothbrush that can effectively clean teeth and gums, and electronic sonic toothbrushes definitely have a tendency to do a better job of cleaning than standard manual toothbrushes. I have used a wide variety of electric toothbrushes over the years, but I was the most excited about trying the FOREO ISSA HYBRID SONIC TOOTHBRUSH. I love the innovative modern design, the ergonomic handle for comfortable use and the combination of gentle silicone bristles that surround the inner core of PBT polymer bristles. 

The silicone bristles gently and effectively clean gums while the combination of silicone bristles and PBT polymer bristles do a remarkable job cleaning my teeth. On the back of the brush one finds a series of raised ridges that were specifically designed to clean the tongue, and it does so quite effectively and efficiently because of their shape in conjunction with the sonic vibration.

I use my FOREO ISSA HYBRID SONIC TOOTHBRUSH in Lavender every single day, except when I am traveling light, and I can say that it is gentle enough so as not to be rough on my teeth, gums and tongue, but powerful enough to thoroughly clean without stripping, and it does a formidable job removing plaque, whitening my teeth and leaving my mouth feeling exceedingly well cleaned. I use a variety of toothpastes from the whitening variety to normal drugstore brands, and the end result is consistently high performing. 

I have not tried the all silicone brush head that FOREO makes, but the FOREO ISSA HYBRID is definitely my preference since I find that the silicone bristles alone don't provide enough friction for my liking when it comes to cleaning my teeth. I really like for my teeth to feel ultra clean, and for me the inner core of PBT polymer bristles provide the requisite degree of tension against the teeth to remove food particles, stains and plaque.

If you are looking to buy yourself a sonic toothbrush, or were planning to buy one for someone on your holiday gift list, then the FOREO ISSA HYBRID SONIC TOOTHBRUSH is definitely worth your consideration.

AVAILABLE COLORS: Lavender, Cool Black, Cobalt Blue and Mint.
According to FOREO,

The FOREO ISSA Hybrid Sonic Toothbrush provides a more vigorous brushing experience for those with more plaque buildup. Its brush head features gentle silicone bristles for use on the gum area and PBT polymer bristles on the inner segment of the brush head to cover the surface area of the teeth. The brush head's unique cross design offers both a massage and gentle clean on the gums as well as a stronger cleaning experience.

The ISSA™ Hybrid Brush is designed with soft, gentle silicone bristles for the gum area, while integrating PBT polymer bristles on the inner segment of the brush head cover the surface area of the teeth. This unique cross-design both massages and provides gums with a gentle cleaning as well as a stronger cleaning experience—making it perfect for those who have more plaque buildup. Its 3D flexible brush head allows it to reach every crevice of the mouth. 
Suggested Usage: 
-Use with regular toothpaste. 
-After applying brush head, turn your ISSA™ Hybrid on using the center button. 
-Adjust speed and use like a manual toothbrush. The pulsations will pause every 30 seconds indicating it is time to move to a new quadrant of the mouth. 
-Two minutes of use, twice daily is recommended. 
-Foreo recommendation: anyone who suffers from a serious dental condition should consult their dentist before using this product. 
-For those with more sensitive gums, use the original ISSA silicone-only brush head.

    1. Yes, I think that it was a really good idea to have changed it from an all silicone head to a combination of silicone and polymer bristles. I never tried the original head, but the interior polymer bristles are what really clean the teeth.
