  • What is Electric Toothbrush?


    An electric toothbrush is a toothbrush that clean your teeth through the rapid rotation or vibration of the motor core, the brush head generates high-frequency vibration, which instantly breaks down the toothpaste into fine foam and penetrates the teeth to clean dirt. 

    Benefits of an Electric Toothbrush

    Compared to a manual toothbrush, the effect of an electric toothbrush is less susceptible to personal brushing skills, and the toothbrush comes with its own function: the blind spot detection function can correct the wrong toothbrushing habits to a certain extent; Electric toothbrushes have stronger cleaning power than manual toothbrushes, which can effectively reduce dental plaque and reduce the probability of oral diseases.


    Features of Electric Toothbrush


    Vibration frequency & cleaning mode

    At present, the vibration frequency of electric toothbrushes is generally 31,000 times / minute to 40,000 times / minute. To some extent, the higher the vibration frequency, the better the cleaning effect, but the vibration frequency needs to be matched with the cleaning mode (the cleaning mode is different Gears correspond to different vibration frequencies) to choose the intensity mode that suits you; 


    Timer & area change reminder

    General toothbrushes come with a 2 minute timed 30s time zone change area reminder (divide the interior of the tooth mouth into 4 areas, 30s will briefly remind you to change the brushing area) 


    Blind area detection

    The electric toothbrush has a built-in gyroscope to divide the oral cavity area, and provide the actual brushing coverage area on the toothbrush screen / APP end; 


    Pressure sensing

    Brushing too hard will cause damage to enamel and gums. Because the force of a sonic toothbrush is often stronger than that of an ultrasonic toothbrush, modern high-end toothbrushes have pressure sensors. When the toothbrush is pressed too hard, some sensors will sound a warning sound or automatically reduce the frequency of brushing, while some sensors will immediately stop the movement of the sonic toothbrush. 


    Charging & battery life

     At present, electric toothbrushes generally use inductive charging. The charging time is closely related to the battery capacity. Generally, the larger the battery capacity, the longer the charging time, the longer the corresponding battery life, the shorter the charging time and the battery life. Long time electric toothbrushes can better meet customer need.


    5 things to consider before buying Electric Toothbrush


    Brush head related
    How to buy replacement brush head  too hard will hurt the gums, is there a variety of soft and hard degrees to choose from, is the bristles easy to lose hair?  Buy brush head: It depends on the material of the bristles and the rounding rate. The quality of the bristles will cause the toothbrush head to easily lose hair and the degree of fit with the teeth; The rounding rate of toothbrush bristles must not be less than 50%, and the rounding rate of children's electric toothbrushes must not be less than 70%. The higher the rounding rate, the less damage to the gums.

    Charging & battery life
    How long does it take to charge and how long can it be used after charging?  The charging time is closely related to the battery capacity. Generally, the larger the battery capacity, the longer the charging time, and the longer the corresponding battery life. However, the quality of the battery also directly affects the charging time. Toothbrush can be used; currently electric toothbrushes generally use inductive charging / direct charging / magnetic type, etc., inductive charging time is relatively long, generally more than 4 hours, the current direct-plug, magnetic charging is faster, In 2-4 hours, if you frequently travel and travel, you can choose an electric toothbrush with a long battery life and a short charging time.

    The intensity of the vibration frequency, will not hurt your teeth if you try too hard?
    At present, the vibration frequency of electric toothbrushes is generally 31,000 times / minute to 40,000 times / minute. Toothbrushes generally have multiple force modes to choose from, and electric toothbrushes with APP functions can customize the brushing scheme, set the brushing intensity and duration; good quality Some toothbrushes also have a pressure sensing function. When the pressure is too high, some sensors will sound a warning sound or automatically reduce the frequency of brushing, while some sensors will immediately stop the movement of the sonic toothbrush to protect the teeth
     
    How loud is the noise? Will it affect others' rest?
    The noise of electric toothbrush is generally 60dB-75dB, which mainly depends on the motor of the toothbrush (directly reflected in the vibration frequency). Normally, the higher the vibration frequency, the higher the noise level, but the higher the material of the motor and the noise reduction treatment After that, the noise level can also be greatly reduced.

    Does the body mold? Is it easy to hide dirt and dirt?
    This is closely related to the body material, because the use of toothbrushes is generally in the bathroom and the environment is humid, so the toothbrush host needs to be placed with mold to breed or the body to stay dry.
