When our dentist recommended the switch to an electric toothbrush, we took the advice immediately. In true fashion, however, we decided to look at all the pros and cons of the best-recommended designs nice and thoroughly before making any decisions.
They’re not the most expensive things in the world, but we really care about our oral health, and we like to know what we’re spending our money on!
Best Electric Toothbrushes
After some friends expressed interest in knowing which electric toothbrushes we liked the best in our search, we decided to make a useful little list for other people to check out too. Enjoy!
Are you a little bit particular about the size and shape of your toothbrush heads because you have very sensitive teeth and gums, and larger brushes tend to cause some irritation? Then we think you’ll appreciate the smaller, rounded design of this brush from Braun.
In addition to having a smaller sized brush head, this model also has a more intense vibration powder. Rather than scrubbing your teeth harder in a way that might wear way enamel and irritate your gums, it instead just does a better job of loosening harmful things that cling to your teeth for a really smooth, clean feel afterward.
- Comes in at a good price.
- Works with a lot of types of head types.
- The charge doesn’t last for a very long time.
Besides looking for a good quality electric toothbrush that you can use over and over and actually make a smart investment in, are you also looking for one that travels well? that might sound funny for such a small thing, but remembering to pack your charging base and the cord can be trickier than people who don’t travel often think. That’s why this kit from Philips is so neat.
Besides offering most of the awesome features you’ve seen on the models we’ve shown you so far, this pack also comes with a sleek, space-efficient traveling case. This case fits your brush (with the handle and head attached for convenience) and the small base and cord altogether, keeping it contained and stopping the cord from getting tangled.
- Features 3 modes and 3 intensities.
- Comes with a smart timer.
If you’re going to make a healthy swap to electric toothbrushes for your own oral health, would you prefer to do so for your kids too? Well, we find that encouraging our kids to use anything always goes better when we used something that’s actually geared towards both what they need and like, so this design from Philips is certainly a great option!
Beside sits adorably colorful and cartoonish design, this electric toothbrush is also custom-designed for smaller mouths and hands, making it a much more comfortable experience for little ones to use. At the same time, it has most of the key features you’d want to see on a full-sized adult toothbrush, like timed cleaning and good but careful brushing power.
- Comes with an app to make brushing exciting for kids.
- Integrated timer.
- The brush can be a bit too big for some kids.
Have you actually been scrolling through our list hoping to find a design that’s more specifically geared towards gum health than just cleaning, but now you’re feeling rather intrigued by the idea of a good travel case for it too? Then Philips might just have what you need again!
This brush comes with three different heads that you can use in direct response to your gum health, with an instructional guide on which is best to attach when. Besides that, the brush and all its heads fit well in the travel case, as does the very sleek recharger, so you don’t lose power halfway through a trip (or lose the charger altogether from packing it separately).
- Comes with 3 brush heads.
- Features a glass charger and a travel case.
- It’s rather pricey.
5. Oral-B Genius Pro 8000 Electronic Power Rechargeable Battery Electric Toothbrush with Bluetooth Connectivity
Are you the kind of person who likes to brush gently but for a long time and wanders around the room while you’re at it? We’re like that too, so you can imagine how intrigued we were when we came across this well equipped toothbrush that also has Bluetooth connectivity!
This feature might not seem like a priority but, for the price, it’s not a bad bonus either. Now you can get a great quality brush in while also listening to your favourite playlist, podcast, or morning news station while you brush and wander! Talk about multi-tasking.
- Features 6 cleaning modes.
- It comes with a travel case that can charge the toothbrush and your smartphone at the same time.
- The brush is pretty loud.
Have we still got you feeling quite enamored with this whole idea of having a bluetooth toothbrush, but you’re also intent on getting one with a decent home station and a travel kit? Then take a look at this fairly priced option from Oral B!
The battery on this toothbrush has an awesomely long life, meaning that you don’t necessarily actually have to take the stand with you on small overnight or weekend trips, which is great since it doesn’t fit in the travel case along with the brush. The stand itself is awesome for your counter at home, giving you spots for extra heads if the handle is a shared one with your partner or family. As an added bonus, the brush also does, of course, have Bluetooth capabilities!
- Has 5 cleaning modes.
- Comes with Bluetooth capabilities.
- Pressure sensor is not very sensible.
Are you and your partner or spouse both planning on swapping over to electric toothbrushes at the same time and you’d love a cheaper option than just purchasing two separate ones, but you don’t like the idea of sharing a handle and just swapping out the brush heads like some people do? Then we think you’ll get along better with this sleek duo series from Aquasonic!
This particular kit comes with one black and one white set so you can always easily tell your brushes apart. Additionally, you get multiple coordinating heads with each handle, a linked stand that keeps things organized, and a travel case for each brush. It’s an awesome deal for the price and certainly cheaper than buying two whole separate brushes elsewhere.
- Comes with 2 travel cases.
- Features 3 modes and smart timers.
- Taking the heads off is difficult.
Were you almost feeling sold on the option we just showed you above, except that you’re just not sure that you need a stand and one of you has always liked bright colours better than plain black and white? Well, we’re the same, so we can’t really blame you. That’s actually why this set duo set from Fairywill caught our eye!
Besides coming with multiple kinds of toothbrush heads for each handle that will help you best care for both your teeth and gums, this set also features a color coordinated travel case for each. On top of that, the second toothbrush that’s paired with the black handle is a lovely bright pink instead of white! The prices are comparable, which is excellent as well.
- Great, as there are two brushes.
- Comes with lots of replacement heads.
- Pressing the mode buttons can be difficult.
Have we really caught your eye with all this talk of a fun, bright pink toothbrush meant for adults, but you’re buying only for yourself, and you don’t need a duo pack? Then Dnsly has just the alternative for you.
Of course, the color of the handle and travel case isn’t the only good thing about this toothbrush. It also has multiple heads, timed brushing, different settings for how your gums are feeling, and a reasonable price point. If we’re being totally honest, however, we mostly like it because it’s fun and pink.
- Features 8 brush heads and 5 modes.
- Comes with an integrated smart timer.
- The case isn’t large enough for all heads.
When we say we care a lot about our oral health, we mean that we’re total toothbrushing nerds who want to do everything to perfection like our dentist tells us to, right down to how long we brushed for. We’re sure you can imagine our excitement, then, when we came across this model from Fairywill!
Besides soft bristles, a sleek design, and a rechargeable battery, this particular toothbrush comes with a timed feature that tells you through changed vibration when to swap brushing sections in your mouth. This helps you make sure that each quadrant of teeth gets the right amount of attention. It’s also a bonus that the pack comes with multiple brush heads and a precision tool!
- Cleans great.
- It’s light and slim.
- Charging takes a bit long.
