I don’t think too much about the toothbrush I use, but I should. Brushing your teeth is one of the most important hygiene and health based activities one can perform on a daily basis. The quality of the brus you use and how you brush your teeth is super important.
Believe it or not, brushing has an impact on your gut bacteria and also helps with digestion. Now why would I talk about brushing on a Xiaomi website?
Well, Xiaomi has an electric toothbrush that has taken the world by storm. People are raving about it, talking about it, using it and have rated it highly.
We take a look into this Xiaomi Electric Toothbrush phenomenon and see what the fuss is about.
Inside the Box
Inside the box, you can find the Xiaomi Electric Toothbrush, a Charging port, a cable and an instruction manual.
The design is rather simple and comes in two colours – Black and White. It looks beautiful and it’s pretty simple. The only thing you will notice is the thick base, which will definitely take some getting used to, for people who haven’t used an electric toothbrush before.
On the body of the toothbrush, there are touch buttons for various functions such as cleaning mode, sensitive mode, new hand mode and whitening mode.
There is also the main power button to turn on the device and to turn it off. I was a bit concerned about the size of the toothbrush charger and I realized that the size is pretty great and isn’t too big. It’s perfectly size and doesn’t take up too much space.
Compared to the body, the bristles seem very small, but they are of the standard size. Even if your bristles wear out, you can buy them separately for cheap.
Function and Use
Coming to the function of the device.
The first question on everybody’s mind is – Electronics around water, is it safe? What if you get a shock. This electric toothbrush is IPX7 rated and can be placed underwater and there are no hassles. You can clean the bristles, as well as the body of the toothbrush without nay worries.
The best part about the toothbrush is the various cleaning modes. The four modes are
- Standard cleaning mode : This is for your normal mode at normal speed.
- Sensitive mode : This is for people with sensitive gums and it goes slower than normal
- Gum Care mode : it is suggested that one should massage their gums regularly and the gum care mode can be used for that
- Whitening individual mode : This is a quick movement of the bristles that you should run only on your teeth for a quick shine
My favourite aspect of brushing my teeth with the Xiaomi electric toothbrush is the data. Now, I’ve been in the past known to have brushed very quickly without paying attention because I need to get out of the house quickly. But with the data, I can tell how much time I spent brushing.
I can also set the mode I want through the app, before brushing. Therefore I’m mindful and I know exactly what I’m doing.
The app also identifies your brushing habits and syncs it with the app.
Coming to the charging, the battery inside the Xiaomi Soocas is pretty big and has a capacity of 1000 mAh. This is a much bigger battery than a lot of smartwatches I’ve reviewed. It has a 25 day standby and the charge lasts for 16 hours, which is pretty great. After you are done using it, you can immediately put it at the charging dock that starts charging.
The Swing and the Bristles
So how does an electric toothbrush actually work? It swings from top to bottom. The fastest swing in this toothbrush is 37,200 times a min. The brush or bristles are FDA approved and are designed differently compared to normal toothbrushes.
Normal toothbrushes have bristles all pointing at the same direction, the Xiaomi electric toothbrush has different angles that can reach different parts of your mouth.
People can live without an electric toothbrush, but in terms of value addition, you don’t know how much value it can add without having used it yourself. I’ve used it personally and it has made me more mindful during the brushing process. All the different modes are perfect and you can let the brush do all the effort without having to do much yourself. You can also educate yourself about your brushing habits and keep improving it.
In my mind, this is an ideal tool to reduce visits to the dentist, which can be expensive.
- Better brushing experience
- Cleaner teeth and suits your gums
- 25 day standby
- Water resistant
- Information on your brushing
- Expensive one time investment for the brush
- The bristles are more expensive than a brush
