If you don’t own an electric toothbrush, it might be time to buy one. While both manual and electric toothbrushes have been considered equally effective, provided that you brush twice per day for two minutes, electric toothbrushes are clinically proven to provide a superior clean, and overall make the brushing experience easier. This, in turn, makes you more prone to brushing while keeping you out of the dreaded dentist’s chair.
Below are some of the best electric toothbrushes that essentially provide the cleaning action for you. All you have to do is simply guide the toothbrush along the surface of your teeth, letting the toothbrush take care of the rest. All of these options are wireless, rechargeable, remove significantly more measurable plaque along the gumline than manual toothbrushes and have built-in two-minute timers ensuring you brush for the dentist-recommended time.
1. Oral-B White Pro 1000 Power Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush
The Oral-B PRO 1000 is a rechargeable electric toothbrush with a professionally-designed brush head. Known as the CrossAction brush, it surrounds each tooth with bristles angled at 16 degrees while 3D cleaning action oscillates, rotates and pulsates to break up and remove up to 300% more plaque along the gumline vs. a regular manual toothbrush. A pressure sensor stops the pulsation movement if you brush too hard and an in-handle timer ensures the dentist recommended brushing time of two minutes.
2. Philips Sonicare Essence Rechargeable Toothbrush
The Phillips Sonicare Essence Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush features an angled neck, soft contoured bristles and patented sonic technology to gently remove plaque in hard to reach areas. The toothbrush also includes a two-minute smart timer to ensure you brush thoroughly, has a charging capability that lasts up to two weeks and easy start which enables you to apply light pressure when guiding the toothbrush over your teeth, letting the Essence essentially do the work for you.
3. Liberex Sonic Electric Toothbrush MS100
Liberex Sonic Electric Toothbrush uses ultrasonic vibrations (up to 48,000 strokes per minute) to remove 100% more plaque than a manual toothbrush for more effective and gentle cleaning. Five different modes including daily clean, gum care, sensitive, white and polish allow you to customize your cleansing experience and the tooth-waved bristles made by Dupont nylon thoroughly cleanse gums and hard to reach areas.
