Yes, I have been using boar hair tooth brushes for a couple of years now. I bought a Rooney Bone handled brush but did not like it. The bone handle was cool and looked so retro but the bristles were too stiff, so I went back to my soft Swissco brushes. I really prefer the soft the best. The bristles are more pliable and move in and around the teeth better.
These are organic brushes and you have to worry about bacteria growth. I use a ultraviolet light toothbrush sanitizer. Or sometimes I will pour a little mouth wash over the bristles.
All in all, they make brushing your teeth more pleasant but I can't say they really do a better cleaning job. As far as longevity, I had a dentist tell me that no matter what kind of brush you use, you should change it out every three months. Good luck with your new brush.
