Maybe one of the biggest questions of all time, are we alone in the universe? What is the meaning of life? Electric or manual toothbrush? Now, the last question may just be the most important question of them all, should we be using an electric or manual toothbrush?
It’s not so much which toothbrush is better for you, it’s important to follow a healthy routine of brushing twice a day, flossing at least once a day, changing your brush ever 3 months and most importantly visiting your dentist for check-ups every 6 months. Whatever toothbrush helps you better those routines you should use to maintain healthy teeth & gums for life.
There’s a new, simple electric toothbrush that helps you maintain those healthy routines and it’s called Quip! Quip’s electric toothbrush has a timer for 2 minutes with 30 second intervals and has 1 mode instead of 8 like most electric toothbrushes. Quip vibrates instead rotates giving your brush the perfect amount of vibrations to give your teeth a great cleaning! Another awesome thing about Quip is when you buy a Quip toothbrush, they send you replacement heads every 3 months for only $5! It’s important to replace your brush every 3 months because of the bacteria that grows on it over time. As a nation 75% of us don’t replace our brush every 3 months. I get it though, most of us don’t think about replacing a brush because we have more important things on our mind, but Quip automatically sends you a new one right to your door. That’s one less thing you have to worry about and one healthier mouth to look forward too.
At Philadelphia Dentistry we love making the experience fun and comfortable for our patients. We now are making games for our patients to play to have a chance to win one of these cool Quip toothbrushes! Our dentists recommend Quip toothbrushes because the 2-minute timer and vibrating bristles encourage our patients to brush better by creating these healthy habits. So, if you’re an oral hygiene rock star and brush your teeth everyday, twice a day for 2 minutes, floss, replace your brush every 3 months and visit your dentist every 6 months than it doesn’t matter which toothbrush you use. If you need a little help and guidance with your dental routine which most of us do, than Quip is a great toothbrush to use because it helps install those healthy habits without you even knowing it. If you’re a patient of ours don’t forget to look for the Quip games at both our checkouts for a chance to win this toothbrush everyone is talking about!
