Design, Build and Hardware
When we talk about the electric toothbrush, Philips or Oral-B are some of the well-known brands that usually come in our mind. They do provide quality with best results. Xtech may be a new name in the dental industry, but it is certainly not the weakest one. The company has released some well-established toothbrushes on the market, but the company being less popular, hasn’t really received a huge support. However, XHST-100 is an ultrasonic toothbrush that works on par with the best ones in the market.
The package comes with a brush handle, charging the unit with UV chamber, Drip Cup, and 3 brush heads. The brush handle has a nice semi-glossy touch on the sides and the back. The front panel is made from rubber to support handling. The matt finished rubber panel provides an appealing look to the device. At the top of the panel is the power button and an operational mode button. The interface is extremely simple. The overall look of the brush is simple and classy.
The package also consists of a UV sanitizer, which is extremely useful in cleaning out the brush head after the brushing session in order to kill the bacteria accumulated at the head. The UV chamber accommodates up to 4 brush heads and takes around 7 minutes to kill 99% bacteria. The package does lack a travel case, which could have been extremely useful if included.
It may not have the best looks in the market, but it certainly have an excellent level of performance. The brush works on the Ultrasonic technology, which makes around 40,000 vibrations per minute. The dynamic cleaning action ensures a complete cleaning of the teeth and gums. It is known to be twice effective than a normal toothbrush.
The brush comes with a standard two-minute timer for an effective brushing session, with a 30 seconds interval to adjust the brush to different quadrants of the mouth. After 2 minutes, the brush automatically turns OFF.
The brush functions at 5 different operational modes:
- Clean: For daily cleaning of the teeth
- Sensitive: Useful for people with sensitive teeth
- White: For extra whitening of teeth and removal of stains
- Gumcare: For effective and gentle cleaning of the gum area
- Massage: For massaging the gums.
Each mode functions on the preference of the users. Using the modes, users can also brush over dental implants like crowns, braces or veneers. The battery life seems to last for around a week with daily usage of twice. However, the brush lacks any warranty, hence you need to be extra careful not to damage any part of the device or else, it will cost you.
Brushing is a great experience and it gets even better if the users are satisfied at the end of their brushing session. Naturally, an expensive product is bound to have better features than an affordable one, but when you have a product like Xtech 100, it is better to buy it without any second thoughts. The extremely cheap price tag and superior features make it one of the most desired toothbrushes in the market. Don’t just worry about it being a new brand, as it delivers the same level of performance as the other top brands in the market.
