Laifen Wave review: the electric toothbrush of the future


Most of us know that keeping our teeth clean and maintaining good oral hygiene is important. It’s not just about vanity, it’s about health. Did you know that there have been studies that found a correlation between bad oral hygiene and the increased risk of heart disease? This is why choosing the right toothbrush is a good place to start, and if you are looking for an electric toothbrush that’s chock full of features and is easy on the wallet, the Laifen Wave could be a good choice.

Sleek, modern design

The majority of electric toothbrushes out there look alright. To be fair, function matters more than form in this case, but having a nicely designed toothbrush is a bonus. That’s something that Laifen has achieved with the Laifen Wave.

Right off the bat, the Laifen Wave stands out by looking very clean and simple. If you prefer a minimalist aesthetic, you really can’t go wrong here. It will fit in any bathroom just fine without standing out too much.

The base model features a body made out of ABS plastic. This offers a slightly shiny and slippery looking surface that’s very simple but pleasing. But if you prefer something a bit more robust and industrial, Laifen also offers the Wave toothbrush in an aluminum alloy finish that has a more textured grip, or a stainless steel mirror finish, which is honestly the sexiest electric toothbrush we’ve ever come across.

All three models, regardless of the finish, feature the use of a pressure sensitive button that lets you control the toothbrush. This is versus other brands that rely on physical buttons which can wear out and discolor over time, so we can appreciate this little design touch.

There are also different indicator lights for the different modes of operation (which we will discuss later) that makes it easier for you to see what you’re doing.

The Laifen Wave is also IPX7 rated and has most of its gaps and ports covered to prevent water from getting in.

Efficient and effective cleaning

Now that we’ve covered how the Laifen Wave looks, let’s talk about its performance, which is pretty much the meat and potatoes of the toothbrush.

One of the main features that the Laifen Wave offers is that it is a dual action electric toothbrush. This means that it can oscillate and vibrate at the same time. Why is this a big deal? This is because a lot of the competition, especially the cheapo models out there, only offer one. This forces customers to have to decide which is more important to them, but with the Laifen Wave, you don’t have to choose.

While oscillating, the toothbrush does this at a 60-degree angle. This is actually an optimal angle for brushing as part of the Bass brushing technique recommended by dentists. This helps to prevent gum disease or control it better for those who do have it. This helps to brush under the gumline which is where nasty things like bacteria and plaque accumulate.

Of course, this isn’t where the fun ends! In addition to oscillating, the Laifen Wave can also vibrate at a whopping 66,000 vibrations per minute! This helps to provide a deeper clean compared to more traditional manual toothbrushes or lower-end competitors that might not have a very powerful motor. According to Laifen, its motor offers 6.1W of vibration compared to 2.0W you might find on other models.

Seeing as we all have different oral hygiene needs, Laifen has you covered. The company actually bundles three different brush heads with the Wave toothbrush. One brush head will be aimed towards those who might need something more gentle, especially for gum care. Another brush head is more for those who need something powerful and want to make sure their teeth are sparkling clean. Then there is another brush that’s kind of a happy middle that’s good for general purpose cleaning and polishing.

As expected of most modern day smart devices, the Laifen Wave comes with its own app. This app allows users to choose from the different modes and levels, and it can also save the user’s preferences so that it’s good to go right out of the box.

The toothbrush also features dual 900mAh li-ion batteries that the company claims is good for up to 30 days, so you can travel with it and not worry about having to charge it.

Easy on the wallet

Last but not least, we have to talk about pricing. One of the main selling points of the Laifen Wave is its price. Starting at $69.99 for the base ABS model, this is a relatively affordable electric toothbrush compared to other similar toothbrushes in the market. We know that you can probably get a much cheaper one, but those models are probably too basic and might not be as pleasing to the eye.

Also, buying an electric toothbrush also means having to buy brush heads in the future when it wears out. In this regard, Laifen does a pretty good job on price. You can grab a 6-pack of replacement brush heads for only $16.99. It is recommended that you swap out new brush heads every 3 months, which means that for $16.99, this 6-pack will last you one and a half years!
