I had been looking at quip for a while but never bought one because I was confident with my manual toothbrush and floss routine. Luckily, a relative gifted me a quip - it's been a month and I still love it!
Very simple design, no bells and whistles that are ineffective or worse, damaging to your gums. Also, I love the materials Quip sent over (in the box or online) and had available on their site. Who'd have thought I'd still have more to learn about dental hygiene?
- If you're used to using a manual toothbrush, keep in mind you'll have to readjust your grip and the strength at which you brush your teeth. You don't have to scrub as hard anymore, so hold your toothbrush more gently. Also, use toothbrush angled away from gums (not perpendicular) to best clean your teeth without potentially damaging your gums.
- I'm an adult with a pretty normal-sized mouth (I think), but my relative bought me a child's size toothbrush. It's been great! With the smaller brush head, I can more easily clean behind my teeth and molars. Just a thought.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
