Brio2As children, there are a number of things we do at our parents request. We go to bed, eat, bathe and brush our teeth as part of our daily routine. As we get older, we learn to appreciate those routines as well as why they are so important for our health. Many people are unaware of the dangers of not brushing, or not brushing well can do to your dental health. The issues can range from swollen and irritated gums to brain damage from infections stemming from your mouth. If you have wondered if there were any advantages of using an ultrasonic toothbrush over a manual brush, you are in good company. Here is some valuable information I discovered on the subject:

5 Reasons To Use An Ultrasonic Toothbrush

  1. Speed: A sonic toothbrush gives an average stroke between 30,000-40,000. A manual brush can only afford up to approximately 300 strokes per minute.
  2. Comfort: A sonic toothbrush is easier to use for anyone with dexterity issues like arthritis.
  3. Gums: The sonic toothbrush is able to massage your gums better, therefore making them healthier.
  4. Reduced Build Up: A sonic toothbrush reduces plaque and gingivitis both short and long term over a manual toothbrush.
  5. Reduced Bacteria: Use of a sonic toothbrush has shown to be more effective in reducing bacteria and germs. This in turn reduces the occurrences of periodontal disease.



Just as a sonic toothbrush is important for superior dental health, choosing the right one is equally important. The sonic toothbrushes from Brio are reliable, affordable and built to tackle that stubborn plaque! They not only clean, but they brighten your teeth with their 100% ultrasonic technology.

  11. I am looking for a new power toothbrush. Your review is helpful because I have not even heard of this brand.

  12. I think I may finally be turning the corner…ever so slowly…on switching from a manual toothbrush to an electric one. I like to be able to control the brushing of my teeth myself. Although, I know that the electric brush would do a better job!

  13. I have never tried a sonic toothbrush before. This sounds wonderful and easy on the teeth. Those thousands of oscillations per minute on the teeth must make you teeth feel like you just left a dentists office.

  14. I use a sonic toothbrush and love it. I like your recipe post, and would like to try your Italian Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf

  15. The tooth brush helps to get rid of a lot of bad things. I like that it can get
    rid of more bacteria than a manual toothbrush.

  16. I switched to a sonic tooth brush a while back, and ever since then, NO tooth problems at all. I floss too, and get sterling reviews from the dental hygienist! I have been buying these for all the grandkids, and still have more to go, I hope I win this one!

  17. My dentist has told me for years to get a sonic brush cause they are the best. I may now get a chance to just mean what he is talking about…I hope!

  19. I use an electric toothbrush and feel that I can reach all areas of my teeth and that this type of toothbrush cleans your teeth better than a manual.

  20. We use ultrasonic toothbrushes, and find it so much better – we can’t dream of going back to a manual one. The best part is that they are so easy for people with arthritis to use!

  21. My Dentist highly recommends a sonic toothbrush because of the speed and the cleaning benefits

  22. I used to have a sonic toothbrush until it wore out after years of use. I’m ready for another one.

  23. I’m currently using a manual toothbrush, but my dentist has been recommending that I start using an ultrasonic toothbrush.

  24. I like the fact that it would reduce plaque and tartar, since I have yellowish teeth that I’d like to deal with naturally. Also, massaging the gums sounds really good!

  27. The ultrasonic toothbrush sounds awesome. Cleans better and faster than a regular toothbrush.

  28. I used to have a sonicare but it bit the dust a couple of years ago and I never replaced it. I’d love to have an ultrasonic brush again.

I LOVE that this one has a 6 week battery life, I’m totally guilty of forgetting to charge things. 🙂

  29. I have never used an electric toothbrush, I think i would enjoy the speed it would seem much cleaner to me.

  30. I don’t use a sonic toothbrush but I’d like to. This looks like a great sonic toothbrush – I like that the handle is not huge. I drink a lot of coffee, too much, and it stains badly at the gum line, as well as between my teeth. I like the small head which requires you to concentrate on a small area.
