Should I Buy a Sonic or Rotary Electric Toothbrush?

Rotary and sonic are two of the options when buying an electric toothbrush for cleaning your teeth. Your dentist can advise you on the most suitable electric toothbrush for your use.

Key takeaways:

  • Sonic electric toothbrush heads spin faster than the traditional rotary electric toothbrushes, cleaning teeth quicker.
  • The sonic toothbrush could be better at reducing gum inflammation through faster removal of plaque.
  • Both types of electric toothbrushes remove plaque more efficiently than manual toothbrushes, helping reduce oral health issues.

“Both sonic and electric toothbrushes have been shown to be well-tolerated, meaning they are effective without being damaging to the oral cavity.”
