How the quip electric toothbrush compares to your toothbrush

The American Dental Association says a toothbrush is worthless if you brush incorrectly. The fact is most of us don’t brush properly, and while most electric brushes help to remove plaque and disturb biofilm when used as directed, it can be tough to tell what features actually make the most impact on your oral health and which are just for show. quip was created to simplify better brushing by focusing on features that matter, and removing those that don’t. See how quip compares.

1. Power

quip has sensitive sonic vibrations like other leading electric brushes to give a gentle clean. The sonic vibrations are set to one sensitive mode to encourage brushing more gently, as brushing too hard can be harmful.

✓ Two-minute timer for full clean

✓ 30-second pulses for even clean

✓ Quiet motor silent to others

× No needless, misleading modes

× No abrasive pressure on gums

× No loud humming or buzzing

2. Charge

quip uses the same type of battery technology as other electric toothbrushes, but with the added freedom of allowing you to replace or recharge it.

✓ Lasts 3 months per AAA/charge

✓ Replacement AAA in refill pack

✓ Use rechargeable AAA if preferred

× No clunky charger or messy wires

× No broken brush from battery wear

× Never worry about losing power

3. Brush head

Our thoughtfully designed brush gently cleans tight spaces with dentist-recommended soft nylon, round tip bristles on a small, flexible head.

✓ Small head reaches everywhere

✓ Flexible neck is gentle on gums

✓ Even bristles for an even clean

× No medium or hard bristles

× No unproven fads like charcoal

× No angled bristles or uneven wear

4. Size

So slim and light that holding it for two minutes won’t feel like an eternity, and it will fit into your bag for wherever your mouth takes you.

✓ 2.6 ounces (under half an iPhone)

✓ 7.56" long (same as manual brush)

✓ 0.59 inches diameter

× No heavy handle

× No awkward bulk or shape

× No need to clutter your counter

5. Storage and Travel

Unlike other brush cases that take up extra space, our multi-use cover is a slim way to mount, stand, and protect your quip at home or while away.

✓ Suctions to glossy surfaces

✓ Mounts and remounts anytime

✓ Flip over bristles to go anywhere

✓ Comes apart for regular cleaning

× No more misplacing cases and covers

× No extra bulk or wasted space

6. Price

By stripping away the stuff teeth don’t need and sticking to only the features they do, we made an affordable electric brush with brush heads that cost about the same as a manual brush over a lifetime.

✓ Electric starter sets from $25

✓ Includes optional Toothpaste

✓ Includes multi-use cover mount

✓ Refills delivered to your door!

× No costly gimmicks without gain

× No middle man to increase cost

7. Refill

There’s a reason we’re the largest oral care subscription service. Fresh brush heads auto-delivered with dentist-friendly timing.
