Top 3 Toothbrush Subscription Boxes
Monthly subscription boxes are all the rage, and it was only a matter of time before someone came up with the idea of offering toothbrushes and toothpaste that can be mailed straight to your door. We get a lot of questions from patients wondering which toothbrush subscription box they should choose, if any. Read on to learn more about the most popular subscription boxes available on the market and find a list of reasons to give your husband when he asks why you signed up for one more monthly subscription box.
Quip is one of the most affordable toothbrush subscription boxes on the market, and it’s also one of the sleekest. For just $40 for the initial startup kit and an additional $5 per month, you can receive an American Dental Association certified, electric metal toothbrush, a full-sized toothpaste, a travel-sized toothpaste, and a toothbrush holder that can be placed on a countertop or attached to a shower or bathroom wall. Quip toothbrushes are also available in a variety of colors, including:
- Rose Gold
The most unique feature of Quip toothbrushes is the timer that will notify you to switch to another quadrant after 30 seconds. This allows you to get your recommended 2 minutes of brushing time in twice a day without setting a timer on your phone or having to count manually in your head. Quip is also ideal for those with sensitivity issues, since the brushes use slight sonic vibrations to clean teeth rather than harsh movements that can feel abrasive on sensitive teeth and gums. Plus, Quip rewards you for sharing the good news. For each friend you refer, Quip will also give you a $5 credit to apply towards your account.
Like Quip, the Goodwell Company offers you the option of paying a one-time fee for a startup kit and a small monthly fee afterwards for a high-quality toothbrush kit and replacements send right to your door, or mailbox. What makes Goodwell Co.’s brushes unique are the fact that they’re created using 100 percent biodegradable, compostable materials using sustainable and ethical business practices. Choose from their bamboo and binchotan manual brushes, premium biodegradable brushes, or sleek hybrid toothbrush that offers the power of an electric toothbrush without the batteries.
If you’d prefer to stick with name-brand toothbrushes and oral care products you already know and love, or if you can’t convince the kids to give up their Spiderman or Disney-princess themed toothbrushes in favor of a biodegradable brush, Toothbrush Hub offers popular brand options at an affordable price. Brands offered include:
- Philips Sonicare
With plans starting at around $2.00 per month, you not only save time spent at the pharmacy buying toothbrushes and toothpaste, but you also save on quality oral care products recommended by dentists.
Benefits of Toothbrush Subscription Boxes
Not convinced you’re ready to make the switch. Consider these top reasons consumers switch to toothbrush subscription boxes to save time and money on their toothbrushes and toothpaste.
1. You’ll Never Wonder Whether it’s Time to Switch Toothbrushes Again
Let’s be honest. Do you keep up with how often you replace your toothbrush? Are you having trouble remembering the last time you replaced your toothbrush? It might be time for you to consider investing in a toothbrush subscription box to make sure you’re switching out brush heads at least once every three months as recommended by the American Dental Association.
How bad is it bad to use the same toothbrush for several months?
It’s not as bad as overloading your electric outlets with Christmas lights or forgetting to keep the family pets away from Christmas tree wires (thanks Clark Griswold!), but it’s pretty bad. Germs that cause bad breath and bacteria that can lead to cavities build up in the bristles of your toothbrush, so the longer you delay switching to a new one, the higher your chances of distributing those germs across your teeth and gums. For diabetics and those prone to infection, this is especially dangerous, since oral infections can cause serious problems if bacteria lurk beneath the surface but make their way to the bloodstream.
2. It’s Fun!
Admit it. You’ve considered signing up, or maybe you’ve already signed up, for a subscription service simply because you enjoy the feeling of receiving a gift in the mail each month. A toothbrush subscription service is a lot more affordable than your monthly book, tea, snack, or makeup subscription box, and it’s actually something you’ll need and use. What better way to justify giving yourself a gift.
3. Sleek High Quality Toothbrushes
While most name-brand toothbrushes available at the drugstore are recommended and approved by dentist, toothbrush subscription boxes actually do provide high quality toothbrushes created using quality materials that are meant to last. If you like the idea of investing in an electric toothbrush that works well AND looks pretty on your bathroom counter without having to worry about tracking down replacement heads, a toothbrush subscription box could be the answer you’ve been looking for.
