No-timer electric toothbrush?

Is there a quality electric toothbrush available without a blasted 2-minute timer? I have advanced-stage gum disease with a lot of extra tooth surface to cover, and it takes over 10 minutes to do it right. I hate having to stop and re-start my toothbrush because of the stinking timer, and I'm looking to buy another toothbrush that doesn't have one. But I can't seem to find one!

My dentist recommends a round-headed oral-B; he thinks it will get my teeth better than sonicare's traditional head. But neither brand seems to offer a toothbrush without a danged timer! Anybody know of one I can get?

Many times when you over-brush, you can traumatize your gums and enamel (toothpaste especially the whitening ones are very abrasive). You can use some other aids like waterpik. With advanced-stage gum disease, you will need more frequent gum maintenance visits. Be aware that in modern times, the gum specialists (periodontists) have no incentive saving your teeth because they make more money placing implants.
