Which is better: an electric or a manual toothbrush?

Which is better: an electric or a manual toothbrush?

Point 1: What are the main differences between electric and manual toothbrushes?

  1. Differences in how they clean
      Manual toothbrushes clean by using wrist motions to brush off the food residue.
      As for electric toothbrushes, there are two ways: rotational and sonic vibrations. Rotational electric toothbrushes utilize high-speed motors to achieve rotational movements in order to clean the teeth. Sonic vibrational toothbrushes use the sonic waves to create high-frequency vibrations in order to loosen the plaque and brush off the food residue. SOOCAS electric toothbrushes are all sonic electric toothbrushes for better results.
  1. Differences in price
      It is not a surprise that manual toothbrushes tend to be cheaper, ranging between $2~$8 depending on the brand and material. In comparison, electric toothbrushes can range from $20 to as much as $200 depending on the model, the number of brush heads included, and their functions.
  1. Differences in travelings
      Manual toothbrushes are more portable in terms of traveling since they are easier to pack. Electric toothbrushes can also be packed for traveling, but it often requires you to pack the chargers as well.

Point 2: What are the advantages of an electric toothbrush?

  1. Electric toothbrushes can more effectively clean our teeth. Especially for those who have fast-paced lifestyles, it allows us to brush our teeth with higher efficiency and more coverage for both teeth and the gums.
  1. Electric toothbrushes are more suitable for those who cannot move around freely. Although they do weigh slightly more than manual toothbrushes, they are more convenient to use since the motor does all the work so your hands and arms do not have to constantly move while brushing your teeth.
  1. Electric toothbrushes have a built-in timer to make sure you have brushed your teeth thoroughly to prevent plaque and clean food residue.
  1. Electric toothbrushes contribute greatly to the environment since they reduce waste. When it's time for replacement, simply replace the brush head instead of replacing the entire toothbrush.

Point 3: Which one should I get? An electric one or a manual one?

  1. Children under age 12 may lack proper control of a regular-sized electric toothbrush . We recommend using a kids' electric toothbrush.
  1. For those who lack flexibility, especially in hands, we recommend using electric toothbrushes. SOOCAS X3U Sonic Electric Toothbrush is a great option to consider.
  1. For those who have a busy work schedule, we recommend using electric toothbrushes to save more time.
  1. For those who travel often, we recommend using manual toothbrushes since they are cheaper and more portable for packing. In case you forgot to pack one, manual toothbrushes are more accessible to acquire.
  1. For those who want to reduce the cost of living, we recommend using manual toothbrushes.
