3D Cleaning Action Technology vs. Sonic Technology

There are two primary types of electric toothbrushes to select from; Sonic technology and 3D cleaning action technology. Understanding the differences between these technologies is important to finding the perfect toothbrush to fit your needs.

Electric Toothbrush vs. Manual Toothbrush

Why switch from your manual toothbrush to an electric one? Did you know that manual brushes leave up to 50% of plaque behind? Plaque is a very sticky, colourless deposit of bacteria that regularly forms on your teeth. The best way to remove it is to attack it from different directions. When you use a manual toothbrush you’re only getting the outer surface of the teeth. Our electric toothbrush has a unique shape, which resembles a dental tool, oscillating, rotating, and pulsating to cover a larger surface area therefore removing 100% more plaque.
