The Quip toothbrush is a slim electric toothbrush that has a gentle vibration, and a built in two-minute timer with a 30 second quad pacer. This brush has been designed to provide easy travel use, and even has a wall mount system for easy storage. This company is not just marketing their brush; they are marketing long term healthy brushing habits. One of their big selling points is that once you buy the brush, they offer automatic brush head delivery every three months for a small fee, this additional benefit has proven to be very beneficial for many of my patients. You can also sign up for their digital reminders to help keep you on track with your routine dental visits.
Quip brushes were designed with the average person in mind, and the notion that most people struggle with good habits. It’s advertised as “The Perfect brush”, and for those who struggle with good brushing habits and changing their toothbrush head every 3 months I think this is a great brush. I have patients who are using this brush and they love it, and I’m seeing great results. Although, this brush is great for many of my patients, I do not feel it’s great for everyone.
After reading many of the online reviews I would say if you already have the Sonicare or Oral-B Electric toothbrush continue using that brush, but consider signing up for a brush head subscription through Amazon. You will get a small discount and the heads will be automatically delivered every 3 months. The Sonicare Flexcare and Diamond Clean brushes have smart apps that go with them as well to help you with your brushing habits and making sure you’re changing your toothbrush head as needed. If you do not have an Electric toothbrush, or you have tried the Sonicare or Oral-B and the vibration was too much for you, the Quip brush is a great place to start.
