Rotating-oscillating electric toothbrush vs sonic toothbrush

Dreaming of that stunning, white smile which will force your friends and family to put their sunglasses on? Not one to blow our own trumpets, but dentists agree that an electric toothbrush is the best for your oral hygiene.

But how to find out which technology is the best? We’ll try to answer this question below.  

SONIC TECHNOLOGY – WHAT IS IT?

Sonic toothbrushes generally vibrate at 24,000 – 40,000 strokes per minute. In comparison, normal electric toothbrushes move the brush head only at 2,500 – 8,000 strokes per minute.

Sonic technology provides a very thorough clean, because not only it cleans the surface of your teeth when it touches it, but also hard to reach areas of your mouth. Sonic pulses create a powerful vibration influencing fluids in your mouth to move into the areas between your teeth and the gum line.

If you’re not used to this technology, it may feel a bit of tickling sensation on the beginning, but don’t worry, it’ll pass.

Due to the high power of strokes per minute, sonic technology is much more innovative than other electric toothbrushes.

BUT HOW ROTATING-OSCILLATING ELECTRIC TOOTHBRUSHES WORK?

Rotating-oscillating electric toothbrushes use a back-and forth rotating motion and they can be as fast as up to 8,000 strokes per minute. As we said above, any dentist will tell you that an electric toothbrush is an obvious choice.

Thanks to the rotating head, the brush can clean your teeth precisely and it won’t put too much pressure on your teeth  

WHICH ONE IS BETTER?

There is a popular misconception that the rotating-oscillating brush head cleans teeth better, because of its movement. But as it turns out, there’s very little scientific evidence which technology is in fact more effective. Opinions are divided, and experts can’t seem to reach an agreement.

Electric rotating-oscillating toothbrushes come with lower power than sonic toothbrushes, but due to the rotating head you can find them quite powerful in removing the plaque off your teeth.

Sonic toothbrushes on the other hand, are considered much more effective thanks to the high level of vibrations they provide.

SO WHY WE CHOSE SONIC TECHNOLOGY OVER ROTATING-OSCILLATING?

The Ordo toothbrush comes with an optimum single speed motor which provides 25,000 Sonic Pulses per minute generating a powerful cleaning action that accelerates plaque removal along the gum line and deep between teeth.

We focused on a lightweight design and convenience, thus the optimum of 25,000 strokes per minute and no charger!  Oral care should be simple and so is the Ordo brush and our subscription. Ultimately, it’s all about the good brushing technique and regular replacements! We try to offer this at a fair price with a flexible service. Enjoy! ☺️
