The rotating toothbrush and the sonic toothbrush have one thing in common: they are much more effective than manual toothbrushes at removing plaque and maintaining impeccable oral hygiene.
However, their brushing method is totally different.
The rotating toothbrush has a small round brush that spins at high speed while emitting rapid pulses.
The sonic toothbrush has an oval, elongated brush head with bristles that vibrate at a very high rate (up to 48,000 vibrations per minute).
Even if the rotating toothbrush is effective in fighting against tartar, it is not recommended for people having the sensitive gums because it can aggravate certain problems, such as:
- The thinning of enamel,
- A weakening of the gums,
- Bleeding in the gums,
Sonic technology is preferred for those with periodontal problems because it offers a gentler cleaning and significantly reduces the symtoms of gum problems.
Its sonic vibrations clean both the surface of the teeth and the sides thoroughly and gently.
Their high-speed vibrations produce micro-bubbles of water which reach interdental spaces, clearing them of plaque and bacteria.
If you have sensitive gums, think no more: the sonic toothbrush is made for you.
