As some of you may (or may not) know, I’m a Biomedical Sciences student, and nothing is more exciting to me than when my beauty blogging and science worlds collide. Today I’m partnering with Goby to share their affordable electric toothbrush with you!
Why should I use an electric toothbrush?
I’m glad you asked. An electric toothbrush is capable of rotating oscillations (aka what all the vibrations and noise are all about), which get in and around your teeth better than any manual toothbrush will ever be able to. I looked up a bunch of scientific studies comparing manual and electric toothbrushes, and the overall proven difference across the board is the reduction in plaque which in turn, reduces the chance of getting gingivitis. It might be just me, but I feel like no one is ever really that worried about getting gingivitis. However, the plaque reduction is visible just after one use. It’s that good!
Don’t most electric toothbrushes cost an insane amount?
Most, but not all. The really high end electric toothbrushes are available through your dentist, and now they’re becoming more mainstream. Goby’s electric toothbrush is the most affordable one I’ve seen, and it’s under $80! The brush heads are supposed to be replaced about every three months, and they are $6 each. What’s convenient is that you can have them delivered on a schedule, and you won’t have to think about the maintenance.
The electric toothbrush comes with a dock and charging cord. One full charge will last up to two weeks. There is also a mini set of instructions in the box, which you will definitely need if you’re not used to using an electric toothbrush. If you accidentally brush your gums, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll bleed, but it’s nothing to worry about (unless it’s excessive…in that case, you should probably practice). The toothbrush comes in all black, black/white, blue/white, pink/white, and orange/white. If you start a subscription for the brush heads, the kit is $50, and it is $65 without a subscription. They are available for purchase directly on the Goby website.
I’ve been using my toothbrush twice a day and my teeth whitening kit (more on that in a week or two ;)) at night for some really great results! I honestly don’t think I can go back to a manual toothbrush after trying this Goby one – I love coffee and sweets too much! The Goby electric toothbrush has given me a healthier, more confident smile in just three weeks, so I can’t wait to see what the long-term results will be.
