Sonic Pic

Sonic Pic is a pick like dental tool that uses the same sonic power as electric toothbrushes. The sonic pulses scale away plaque. Scale tooth surfaces and in between your teeth too. Enamel safe, it gently removes tartar and stains while providing superior cleaning and whitening. You can use it in addition to your regular dental care to get behind teeth and in between them, removing any build up that is still lingering after a meal.

Sonic Pic Commercial

Features

  • Removes Build up

    These pics gently remove stains, plaque, and tartar allegedly right on contact with your teeth.

  • Healthier Teeth

    With this unit you get to remove stains, whiten your teeth, and enjoy healthier gums.

  • Sonic Power

    This unit uses sonic waves to clean your teeth in front, behind, and in between. It uses three thousand sonic vibrations per minute.

  • Rubberized Grips

    With rubberized grips it is easier and safer for you to control. Stability is ensured which means anyone in the family can use it.

Pros

  • Full Set

    With this unit you get the special Sonic pic, in addition to teeth cleaning tips, mirrors to help you see behind the teeth, and finally a set of sensitive teeth and gum cleaning tips.

  • Simple to Use

    There is a built in timer that helps you know when your teeth have been cleaned. What's more, you get the ultra bright LED light to help guide your way around your teeth.

  • Safe for Children

    This unit is fun and easy for kids to use at home in order to ensure better teeth cleaning.

Cons

  • Batteries

    It runs on batteries in order to pulse and provide light. You need three AAA batteries to make it work. Without these batteries you can still use the gum cleaning feature to try and remove food particles but you won't be able to scale away any plaque or build up from your teeth or gums.

How it's Different from Competitors

Regular dentists use standard teeth cleaning tools just like these. There are similar kits available in stores for home use. This particular kit is different insofar as it is battery operated which makes it portable. The low profile tip means better cleaning while the ergonomic design means it is easier to use. Gum health is ensured with the soft tip attachment that you can use to floss and clean your gums. Whether you have dental work like braces, veneers, implants, or crowns, you can use this to clean the hard to reach places where plaque normally hides.

Save Money

Overall, whether it works well or not it is certainly a cheaper alternative to serious dental care. If you use it regularly you can help to remove some degree of plaque and food particles at the very least. The more food particles you can remove from your teeth, the healthier your teeth will be and the better off your dental visits too.

Does It Really Work?

In theory, sonic toothbrushes are electric toothbrushes which not only have bristles to remove food particles but have the high speed sonic pulses to break apart any plaque. When you are moving a toothbrush by hand you can only get a certain number of strokes, but when something is sonic it is high powered and offers more strokes per minute. This does offer a higher level of clean. The technology used in such toothbrushes is the same thing used here, but instead of bristles it has the single tip which you use to get into the finer areas of the mouth.

In theory it should work to get your teeth cleaner, but not necessarily to whiten to the degree you want. Any level of teeth whitening will surely be the same level of whitening you get with regular brushing, something contingent upon the toothpaste you use. Also, based on toothbrush you use, what you eat or drink, and how often you brush.

It Works

It works! Uses 1 AAA rechargeable or regular battery. If you look at the bottom cap which twists off you will see a + sign (for the positive end of the battery) its a tight fit but it does go in. To assemble battery, note alignment arrows (white on white) on cap and unit. Insert battery with negative going inside the unit. Cap cover must be inserted~1/4" to the left of alignment arrows, then twist cap clockwise to align arrows on cap and unit. You can try 1 AAAA battery instead (per other reviews) if you cannot fit 1 AAA battery. Important: It takes two hits of the switch to get the light AND vibration. One hit gets only the light, the second hit for the vibration and third hit for stop, so you might think it's broken Tried the pick for two days now, find it a bit difficult to use (not as simple as it seems to imply in the pictures on the packaging). You have to try and see as well as using the sensitivity of your gum and tongue for positioning and moving the pick as you are working the teeth. I find that it works better if you angled the pick slightly (45 - 60 degrees Approx.) and not use at a 90 degree per the pictures on the packaging. Be very careful as not to press too hard, esp. If you have sensitive teeth, I find a light pressure and a side to side movement along the face of the tooth works better. Before using the pick I did notice a ridge of something near the gum of 3 teeth, which I could not remove with brushing, the dentist suggested that I book a hygienist for cleaning, but this ridge was there when the hygienist cleaned my teeth last year. I have noticed these ridge near the gum of the 3 teeth seem to be not as noticeable on the tongue, but not sure still early days. Cannot see how the teeth will be whiter, as the speed does not seem fast enough. The teeth do feel different smoother. You should persist to try and get your pick working, give you another tool to keep your teeth clean and delay decay.

Update! The batteries that I am using at the moment are 'Kodak-AAA-Alkaline', 'Memorex-AAA-Alkaline', 'One pound store AAA rechargeable' all these fit, other brands also fit. The first battery lasted 4 days. When I changed the battery the new battery did not work (no light or vibration), I found a problem when changing the battery, the metal contact strip on the bottom cap can be distorted so preventing proper contact when you replace the bottom cap, so you have to take care when tightening the bottom cap. Looking at the bottom cap metal contact strip there was what looks like a dividing line, so the quick fix was to bend the metal contact strip outwards along this dividing line carefully and then insert the bottom cap back, it works again! I suspect this is the first hurdle problem that many are encountering when they first open the item and insert the battery and it does not work, it's the contact strip! I have not noticed any whitening in my teeth, however, I do notice that the teeth do feel cleaner. But do be careful when you are using the item as it is very easy to nick the gum and make it bleed.

Your comment about the metal strip being distorted got it working for me. I did need to use a thin nosed pliers to get it to bend correctly.

Unit Works Well

Technologically challenged senior male. Paid CAD 4.50 from China. Took 1 month to arrive. Works well. Uses 1 AAA rechargeable or regular battery. To assemble battery, note alignment arrows (white on white) on cap and unit. Insert battery with negative going inside the unit. Cap cover must be inserted~1/4" to the left of alignment arrows, then twist cap clockwise to align arrows on cap and unit.

Does NOT Work I Bought 3

I purchased 3 of these, bought brand new AAA batteries and all three did NOT work. I have tried to reach out this company and no one has contacted me about this, so I felt forced into writing this BAD review. Thank you, Madonna Marron Park City, UT Madonnamarron@gmail.com.

Battery Doesn't fit

And there is no recourse. No phone number. No legible address. From China. Piece of shit! Don't buy this. I'd give it a minus star if there were such a thing. Please stop advertising this faulty product! See all the posts that say the same thing!

It Works but Does it Clean?

I bought it at Target for 10 bucks. Battery fits, cover is hard to fit but it does and it works but I don't see stains gone yet. Maybe.

Beware

After waiting for the Pic for 7 weeks, it does not work. Came from China so returning it won't happen. Never again!
