Revolation Toothbrush vs Rotadent Toothbrush

by Carrie Ibbetson, RDH Oral Health Coach

I’ve been a huge fan of a “rotary” style toothbrush for many years. Why? Because it works very similarly to the polishing tool that we as hygienists use to polish teeth, but it has a distinct difference. Instead of a rubber cup, the head has thousands of micro-filaments that come to a point and allow a person at home to get to the nooks and crannies that most “tooth” brushes miss.

Think of this one as a “gum” brush that will also clean your teeth. Hands down, this tool is one of my favorites for healthy and clean teeth and gums. Check out the difference between the Revolation and the Rotadent.

Hi this is Carrie from Natural Gumption and today we’re talking about the Revolation Electric Toothbrush. For a long time we only had Rotadent but now we have Revolation and I’m really excited about this brush. I can’t say enough about it. It’s really quiet. There’s a UV sanitizer in the base so it helps to kill the bacteria. There you go, I think you can see it. The battery life lasts a long time.What I love about this type of toothbrush is the pointed head and this is the most important one. There’s three different ones. There’s flat, which they call a hollow. And there’s a short pointed, which is what I think really everyone should use almost every day, and then there’s a long pointed one as well.And because it rotates in a full 360 degrees, it really allows you to get in between the gums and then the tooth itself. And then the pointed head you can also do the tops of the teeth as well.If you hear this one, it’s actually, really, really, really quiet which is one of the things I like about it. There’s three different speeds. There’s normal, there is a sensitive which is a little bit slower and there is a pulsed. So sometimes if you aren’t paying attention you are actually hitting it and all of a sudden your toothbrush starts to change sounds, it’s usually because it’s on pulsed setting.Again, it’s the only toothbrush really that rotates in the full 360 degrees and these little bristles are silk filaments so they’re not nylon, they’re not going to damage the gum tissue.What I like to say about this one is this is a gum brush which is going to clean your teeth, whereas all the other electric toothbrushes are toothbrushes that might clean your gums.This is also really effective for whitening your teeth, because it gets down to the staining that a lot of other toothbrushes can’t get to.The reason that I like this one so much is because I liked the Rotadent for years, and years and years, I think for about 15 years I recommended Rotadent and they came out with this new one called the Rotadent Plus and they have just had issues after issue after issue. It’s really loud and the heads continue to have issues and the battery continues to have issues.This one was my favorite for years and I really loved this product, but I’ve been really disappointed with the Rotadent Plus, so luckily the patent ran out on the Rotadent and another company has come in and just made a superior product.So, Revolation, Revolation, Revolation. It’s an amazing product and everyone would benefit from it. Truth be told, I use the flat head for my little three year old and it’s amazing at how clean it’s kept our entire family.Anyone with special needs it’s a great tool because if you just have a short amount of time to get in there, it’s really, really effective. I can’t say enough about it. I think it’s an amazing brush. Everyone should have it. Get it, use it, try it, love it, Revolation. Thank you. Thanks for stopping by.
