Electric Toothbrush

Are they better than your standard toothbrush? Do Electric Toothbrushes clean your teeth better? Or is the technology behind it placebo?

    They can't possibly be worse. I don't want another filling in my lifetime so I'll risk wasting a few bucks.

      Spoiler alert, your teeth are all going to rot and fall out by the time you reach 70.

        I'm not gonna make it to 70, and you've got bigger problems by then anyway. Like cancer.

    It'll make the job easier. First thing you'll notice is how smooth your teeth are. But with effort you can achieve the same with a standard toothbrush.

    They should make it to where you can insert toothpaste and water into the toothbrush that automatically dispenses while it runs on your teeth.

        These work pretty well, but I mainly use it for my tonsils.

    It's wild that toothbrush tech hasn't innovated at all in all these years beyond "it vibrates now".
    Surely somebody can invent something to make brushing your teeth take seconds instead of minutes. Like a special toothbrush that's molded to your teeth or some shit.

    And most dentists recommend electric toothbrushes these days. They’re not a magic bullet, but they do result in a better cleaning.

    I looked into this and found out that apparently most people are so stupid they can't even brush their teeth properly. These things are helpful for those people and everyone else should just buy a pack of toothbrushes for 7 dollars every year or two.

      This method is too slow for me. I like fast and hard brushing.

        I do too, sometimes I autopilot back to my old fast technique if tired. But something about the sweeping saves me from spitting blood so I take my time.

    If you are a hard brusher they can actually make shit worse and wear down your teeth
    I switched to a bamboo handle one with natural bristles because I got uncomfortable with the idea of grinding plastic against one of the more sensitive areas of my body

    yes they are better. you'll never achieve the clean feeling of an electrich brush with a manual one, especially for shit like molars where you basically have no room to move the brush. i've basically used all the high end shit from oral-b and philips, and overall the philips shit is better. you don't need the super high end crap and something like a sonicare 4100 will do, just don't buy the shittiest brush heads.

      and if you want something cheap with similar power to the high end philips, get a laifen wave. no difference between the model aside from handle material (plastic, aluminum, stainless, i went with alu) and far more adjustable brushing settings. the laifen heads suck though, but they are compatible with philips heads which are much better, but expensive. but again, if you want something cheap that works, just get a sonicare 4100.

      They're made shitty tho, I've opened mine like 3-4 times to fix the magnets not being separated or a loose screw. Philips is some gigaisraelite brand.

        the 4100? i mean yeah they're shitty, because they're cheap. i've been using the diamonclean for years prior to the 9900 and the only downside was scale buildup in the buttons which was a pain to clean ever 1-2 years, and battery starts noticeably degrading after 2-3 years. oh and you might break the thing if you drop it. electronics aren't really meant to handle those sorts of vibrations so wouldn't be surprised if shit got loose on the shittier models.

          I've had both a cheap and an expensive one and both have had the exact same issues.

            either you're unlucky or you keep dropping the things. the only time i've had a sonicare go bad when when i dropped it almost 6ft onto shower tiles, and even then it still worked, just a bit finnicky at times. i literally keep a brush in the shower at all times and they've never had issues from regular use.

      Is that 9900 worth stepping up to from a 4100?

      • 3 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        almost certainly not unless you're autistic like me. i wanted the travel charging case (usb-c), stronger motor, and ended up paying $200 extra for those, while disabling all the extra smart shit the 9900 came with. stupid huh? better upgrade is to get the A3 brush head since it speeds up brushing a bit due to the massive head.

        i've only used it for a month, but the laifen is so far a bit better than the 9900 too, aside from the shitty pogo pin charging and lack of travel case. i'm keeping that one as my new shower toothbrush since im a lazy frick. some advice if you actually want an electric toothbrush
        >get the largest high quality brush head that's comfortable for your mouth to speed shit up
        >don't keep that shit always on a charger, only charge when needed to preserve battery health
        since you're probably going to be swapping brushes every 3-5 years due to battery degradation and brush heads every 3-6 months due to wear, probably not worth it to get the highest end crap unless you have money to burn.
