Choice:

TheOral-B Black 7000 Electric Toothbrush possesses possibly all thepotential technology that can be placed on an electric toothbrush byindustry standards. This would possibly be the best option that Iwould replace my current electric toothbrush which does not have suchadvanced technology. However, I am conscious of the price because theOral-B Black 7000 Electric Toothbrush packs advanced technology whichmakes it too expensive for me. Maybe if I was earning a huge salary,I would consider it.
