Quip Electric Toothbrush Review
I hate going to the dentist. I always have and always will. As a kid I had some pretty bad teeth and getting cavities filled was pretty routine for me. Today the thing that motivates me the most to care for my teeth is the scary thought of what going to happen at the dentist if I don’t! There are three things my dentist always tells me to do:
- Brush daily
- Floss Daily
- and Rinse with warm salt water to kill bacteria.
I thought I was a great teeth brusher but during my last dentist appointment by dentist pointed out that my gums are started to reseed because I wasn’t brushing correctly. Yikes! He recommended I look into getting a electric toothbrush. This is what brought me to find the quip toothbrush (a very stylish electric toothbrush)!
What is Quip?
Quip is a mouth hygiene company that came up with a great design for a powerful and effective electric toothbrush. Their products are top-of-the-line and beautifully designed to include all the features you would need in a electric toothbrush. Quip’s toothbrush is very simple and easy to use. It just has one mode (a 2 minute timer with 30 second intervals), mental vibrations, soft bristles, and a travel-friendly compact design. Quip also offers tooth paste and brush replacements.
Quip Toothbrush Design
The first thing that I noticed when I saw a advertisement for Quip is the sleek design. At first I didn’t realize that it was a electric toothbrush since it was to compact and thin. The typical electric toothbrush that I was used too was big, ugly, and bulky. The compact design makes it really nice in terms of not taking up too much space in the bathroom. My husband used to have a regular bulky toothbrush that would always sit in it’s charger on the bathroom sink and it was a huge eyesore!
With the Sonicare that my husband used to have there was always a cable that plugged into the wall to charge it. The Quip toothbrush not only takes up a lot less space but it’s battery powered! These regular batteries will keep it powered for three months so you don’t need to worry about and cords or having access to a wall outlet.
Battery power makes it also a lot better for traveling! You don’t need to bring any chargers with you. This is especially great if you will be traveling for weeks or going over seas. Another cool feature for traveling is that the tube part of the stand can also work as a cover! Speaking of the tube, it also has a sticky strip on it so you can mount it to your bathroom wall or mirror and free up counter space.
There are two different material options you can choose from, either metal or plastic. There isn’t really that much of a difference between them other than the cost. Plastic is $25 and metal is $40. The metal toothbrush will feel a little heavier which makes it feel higher quality and more expensive. I liked the metal one because of just how it looked and felt in my hand.
Brushing with Quip
The whole goal behind this product was to help people develop better brushing habits and teach you how to brush your teeth correctly. When you use Quip it will automatically start a 2 minute timer and you will hear a “ping” every 30 seconds that will signal you to move the brush to a different part of your mouth. This is pretty standard when it comes to electric tooth brushes.
However, what was nice and unique about Quip is the way it vibrates. It’s not super load and obnoxious. It’s a lot quieter than Sonicare brushes. It’s also quite enough that it shouldn’t wake someone up if they are sleeping in the next room. My husband is a bit of a night owl and I can’t tell you the number of time he would wake me up brushing his teeth with the Sonicare. Since we’ve made the switch to quip I can sleep undisturbed!
I also noticed that the bristles are much softer than Sonicare’s. The soft bristles and quite vibrations just make the overall brushing experience very pleasant. Both my husband and I agree that we prefer brushing with Quip but in the end it will just come down to your personal preference.
