I admit it... I am becoming spoiled as a consumer. Just think, not too many years ago we had to wait for the day and time of our favorite TV show, carry a map in the car when we travel, and actually GO to the store. Savvy companies are filling high demands for convenience. I watch what I want when I want on Netflix. I push a Bluetooth enabled button, and the next day Amazon ships a new jug of Tide so I never have to leave the house.
Quip is a new company that combines tried and tested oral care concepts with the modern convenience of automated shopping.
Quip's electronic toothbrush is sleek and sexy, yet minimal. They cut out all of the unnecessary gadgets and buttons for the sake of simplicity. The toothbrush gives a distinct vibration every 30 seconds to help you adhere to a two-minute routine. This is helpful because most of my patients who struggle with cavities or gingivitis got that way due to lack of proper brushing, whether not often enough or not long enough each time they brush.
Quip comes with a holder that doubles as a toothbrush cover so you can easily travel with it or take it to work for a post-lunch brushing.
When you order Quip, you don't just get a toothbrush, you get a complete care kit. The tube of Fluoride toothpaste is perfectly sized to last you about three months- the same amount of time your brush head should last you. If you haven't been quite the toothbrush saint and replaced your brush every three months like you should, this is your solution. Quip automatically sends you a replacement toothbrush head and toothpaste refill every three months. The Quip brush heads are affordable and economical.
So, in a nutshell, here is my professional Quip review:
The pros: Affordability over other popular brands like Oral-B andSonicare; emphasis on proper brushing technique (2 x per day, for at least 2 minutes); automated brush head and toothpaste refills, nice design. Quip also reminds you when it is time to see your dentist (me).
The cons: Still more expensive than conventional toothbrush and toothpaste; no unbiased studies to show that Quip removes plaque better than the contenders;
