Sonic toothbrush vs. electric toothbrush: Who has what it takes to win the test? Should you rather buy a sonic toothbrush or a rotating toothbrush? Before you buy a sonic toothbrush, you may be dealing with questions like this.
Whether you want a sonic toothbrush for whiter teeth or a sonic toothbrush against tartar to encourage you in your purchase decision, you can get an overview of the most important types in the category of toothbrushes here.
- Also known as mechanical toothbrush
- No electricity is required to clean the teeth
- Thorough cleaning is only possible with the correct technology
- The lowest price compared to the other toothbrushes on this list
- Suitable for small children who are not yet able to use an electric toothbrush
- Can be misused for cleaning the household
- The drive is via an electric motor
- it can be a round brush head that rotates/vibrates or an elongated brush head that moves from one side to the other
- Compared to a sonic toothbrush, with such a toothbrush you will need longer to clean your teeth
- Regular toothpaste is sufficient
- Best if you want to switch from a mechanical toothbrush to a motor-driven toothbrush
- Sound, together with an electric motor, drives the brush head, which moves at a particularly high frequency per minute
- Rarely available as a sonic toothbrush with a round head
- You do not need a special sonic toothbrush toothpaste
- Sonic toothbrushes with pressure control indicate when you have exerted too much pressure on the gums (a low contact pressure is sufficient for thorough cleaning)
- The elongated brush head covers a large area when brushing the teeth
- The cleaning principle is similar to that of a manual toothbrush, whereby there are significantly more movements of the brush head per minute
- these toothbrushes actually rely on ultrasonic technology that transmits itself in the form of vibrations
- special toothpaste is required, whereby the ultrasonic vibrations cause small bubbles in the special toothpaste to burst for a particularly thorough cleaning effect
- gentle and thorough cleaning of teeth and gums
- additional costs for the special toothpaste
Instead of buying an electric toothbrush that you have to charge regularly, there is a kind of transitional model, which is located between a classic manual toothbrush and a full-fledged electric toothbrush. These toothbrushes look like regular manual toothbrushes. In the handle of such a toothbrush, however, the manufacturer has integrated batteries and a control button for switching on and off.
With these disposable toothbrushes, you can also benefit from the brush head vibrating at the push of a button. The appearance of a manual toothbrush and the fact that it is a disposable product where you can neither replace nor charge the batteries make the crucial difference between such a model to a full-fledged electric toothbrush.
