Oral B – Battery Operated Toothbrush
I recently purchased a battery operated toothbrush from Oral-B. It is called “CROSS ACTION POWER”.
It has a rotating head and also a criss-cross head which clean the teeth with a double action.
In India, this product is marketed by P&G.
- Rotating Powerhead
- Powered CrissCross™ Bristles
- Soft end Rounded Bristles
- Blue Indicator Bristles
- Refill Head
- Sleek Soft Grip Handle
- Battery Powered
The product costs Rs. 399/- and comes with a AA Duracell Battery. So it is ready to use out of the pack. It also has a detachable head so that you can change it when the bristles turn white. Oral-B toothbrushes have these color indicative bristles which change color when it is old enough.
The pack of 2 heads cost Rs. 200/-
From Oral-B’s archived website:
Oral-B CROSSACTION POWER combines a clinically proven rotating PowerHead™ with CrissCross® bristles for more cleaning action in every stroke.
Its CrissCross bristles reach deep between teeth and along the gumline to lift and sweep away plaque, while the rotating PowerHead effectively surrounds teeth to loosen and whisk away plaque from surfaces and hard-to-reach back teeth. The result is a deeper, more complete clean.
CROSSACTION POWER features an ultra-thin handle with soft rubberized grip for greater comfort and control and offers a choice of an easily replaceable soft or medium brushhead.

It is a mystery why the product continues to sell in India.
