It's a SONIC toothbrush, it shouldn't spin/rotate
on November 8, 2013
I've used sonic toothbrushes for years, and I'm here to find more travel size sonic brushes for my young adult children for stocking stuffers. I have given them for Christmas a number of years and they are now expected.
People who do not give this at least 4 stars don't know what they are buying - period.
The 2 biggest complaints about this product are complaints about what this product doesn't do and doesn't have, 1. "It's junk, doesn't spin or move around very much." 2. "The head isn't big enough for an adult."
This is NOT a spinning electric toothbrush & This does NOT have a large brush-head by design. What it does -the movement of the brush head in your mouth- through a combination of high frequency and high amplitude bristle motions- creates a very high velocity of movement that is so fast it vibrates, and moves water and toothpaste around so fast that they break down plaque (not the brush itself). The smaller brush-head moves easier around the mouth, between and behind teeth. Plus...this toothbrush is meant to be taken with you to brush on the go, compact, not to be used as your main toothbrush.
That said - I would use this travel size sonic toothbrush over a manual or standard electric toothbrush any day. Results of a sonic toothbrush - even the travel size - are most obvious to your dentist, than what you could tell.
Sonic brushes do take some time to get used to because you don't "scrub" your teeth anymore!
The best place to educate yourself about what a SONIC toothbrush is suppose to do is at the Sonicare website.
