You’re ready to jump on the bandwagon. Everyone else is doing it. Electric toothbrushes. They’re all the rage, but which one should you choose? There are the top contenders and a few things you should think about before making your choice.

Also, consider that, when you use an electric toothbrush, you may not need to visit the dentist as often. And, even if you don’t or can’t reduce your cleaning frequency, you can still visit Carefree Dental for information on how to lower your dentist bill.

Either way, these brushes will help you improve your oral health, and reduce your reliance on the dentist to clean plaque off your teeth.

Sonic Electric Toothbrush

Philips makes some amazing products, and one of those is its Sonic Care Toothbrush. Philips pioneered the Sonic technology. This brush reduces up to 2x more plaque than an ordinary manual toothbrush, and it’s rechargeable, which gives you about two weeks worth of brushing before you have to charge it again. It has an inbuilt dynamic fluid action that helps you clean the teeth along the gumline.

This is an excellent brush to use, and you’ll notice results after the first brushing. Your teeth will feel noticeably cleaner. You will remove plaque you never knew existed. It’s actually a little gross the first couple of times. But, it makes you wonder what you ever did without it.

The Oral B Pro 3000

This brush claims to remove up to 97% of plaque from your teeth, and it can reach into the gaps where it’s not possible to get with a manual toothbrush. It will effectively reverse gingivitis, and has an built-in pressure sensor that helps stop pulsations when you brush too hard. In that sense, it helps preserve your teeth. It offers three different modes with are “daily clean, “sensitive,” and “whitening.”

It’s one of the best brushes on the market right now.

Waterpik Complete Care Water Flosser And Sonic Toothbrush

This brush and pick promises to give you cleaner and healthier gums in just 2 weeks. It’s an all-in-one solution for flossing and brushing. Most people have to floss and brush separately, and they find it a bit annoying — so much so that many people do not floss at all.

It has a solid finish and also comes with a travel case. It’s compatible with a 120VAC/60Hz outlet and saves counter space as well as wall outlets.

iBrush SonicWave Electric Toothbrush with UV Sanitizer

What sets this brush apart is the fact that it was developed by a dentist. Dr. Patty Martin developed this brush to help improve the quality of products being offered to consumers. It’s considered one of the best brushes on the market. Offering three different operating modes, which include “normal,” “soft,” and “massage,” this brush helps you do more than just clean your teeth.

It helps keep teeth fit and blood flowing to the gums (thanks to the “massage” mode). The QuadSense technology has a two-minute timer and makes it possible to reach hard-to-get-to areas of the mouth. It’s got a dedicated UV sanitizer too. The sanitizer destroyed 99% of germs and harmful microbes on the brush head between brushings. It can be powered for up to 6 weeks due to its water-resistant ionic charge docking station.

This makes it one of the best brushes for traveling, due to the extended time between required charges.

The Panasonic EW-DE92 Sonic Vibration Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush

It’s kind of a hard name to remember, but this brush is pretty cool. Unlike other options on this list, this brush offers a pulsing option, which pulses every 30 seconds, and twice every 2 minutes. It’s equipped with 4 different brushing modes: “white mode,” “soft mode,” “sensitive mode,” and “gum care mode.”

It comes with two extra brush heads, too, which means that you’ll save money right off the bat by not having to buy additional brush heads just to use the device.

The Pursonic Sonic Toothbrush

This brush features what the company calls “Pursonic Technology.” It can produce up to 40,000 sonic strokes per minute, with a built-in 2 minute timer. It gives an alert every 30 seconds, too, which lets you focus on a different area of the mouth every 30 seconds. It also comes with a 1 year warranty and a guarantee with 12 additional brush heads — more than any other on this list.

If you’re looking for a single unit that could hypothetically cover the whole family, this is it. While it might be a pain to change out the brush head each time, it’s not impossible, and it would save on buying a bunch of extra units for each family member.
