Manual toothbrushes are quickly becoming a thing of the past as more advanced, electronic options provide aid in maintaining your dental hygiene. Today, if you’re looking to buy some new bristles, it can be pretty overwhelming. Rest assured, there is a plaque-disrupting, bacteria-eliminating brush for everyone.
Most features: Oral-B 7000 SmartSeries Rechargeable Power Electric Toothbrush
The Oral-B 7000 electric toothbrush pairs with an app that gives you real-time feedback on your brushing. This means you won’t have to wonder if you’ve cleaned your teeth well enough. The brush will actually tell you when the job is done. It has six cleaning modes and a light-up pressure sensor that will alert you if you’re being too aggressive. You’ll also receive three brush heads—ProWhite, FlossAction, and Sensitive Clean—depending on your cleaning needs.
Runner-up: Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Classic Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush
The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean gets the job done with five straightforward settings: clean, white, deep clean, gum care, and sensitive. The built-in Smartimer and Quadpacer helps ensure you brush the all your teeth for the right amount of time. It beeps every 30 seconds to let you know when to switch a new quadrant of your mouth and then informs you when you’ve finished the recommended 2-minute brushing time.
Budget pick: Arm & Hammer Spinbrush PRO+ Deep Clean Powered Toothbrush
Who says affordable means you need to give up quality? If you want to try out an electric toothbrush but aren’t sure you want to commit, this might be a good place to start. The brush oscillates and rotates, so you can get a sense of what both feel like. It’s also a good option if you are traveling and don’t want to bring a fancier electronic toothbrush with you, but don’t want to give up squeaky clean teeth while away. This brush is approved by the American Dental Association, too.
