Buying advice: How to find the right product in our sonic toothbrush comparison 2022
The most important in a nutshell
- Sonic toothbrushes use a transducer to generate 30,000 to 62,000 vibrations of the brush head per minute. This makes an extremely thorough tooth cleaning possible.
- The brush head on a sonic toothbrush is elongated. This distinguishes it from the round brush heads of normal electric toothbrushes.
- The application of the sonic toothbrush is similar to a normal toothbrush. You do not need special toothpaste for a sonic toothbrush and the brushing time remains unchanged for at least 2 minutes.

On this page, you can read important test criteria such as the size of the toothbrush, the scope of delivery including brush heads, and the question of whether a pressure control and/or a timer are available.

What exactly is a sonic toothbrush?
A sonic toothbrush is a further development of a regular, electric toothbrush. The further development consists in the fact that the brush head moves at an even higher frequency. But how exactly does a sonic toothbrush work? This list provides information about this:
A sonic toothbrush does not simply use an electric motor, but an electric transducer.
An electric motor drives this transducer.
The transducer generates vibrations that are transmitted to the brush head and set it in motion.
Between 30,000 and 62,000 vibrations of the brush head must be per minute for it to be a sonic toothbrush.
It should be emphasized at this point that it is not the case with a sonic toothbrush that you clean your teeth with sound. Rather, the sound only plays a role in the drive of the brush head, while you continue to clean your teeth with it.
In addition to the many movements, another special feature of a sonic toothbrush is that it has an elongated brush head, as you should know from a manual toothbrush. A round head, on the other hand, is a rarity in sonic toothbrushes, while regular electric toothbrushes rely on it.
Which toothbrushes are available for special requirements?
In addition to electric and manual toothbrushes, there are also a number of toothbrushes for special requirements. These include, for example, interdental brushes, which are also known as interdental brushes and are needed for cleaning these gaps. Chewable toothbrushes, on the other hand, are intended for use on the go, while finger toothbrushes are suitable for oral care in babies.
