Top 6 Best Electric Toothbrushes You Should Buy

The right toothbrush for you depends on your personal preference—do you want a classic brush that costs a couple bucks at the drugstore? Or do you want to shell out for an electric toothbrush that does some of the work for you? According the American Dental Association, they both work equally well to clean your teeth. But a powered toothbrush might help you ditch some of your bad brushing habits—like not going for long enough and failing to hit hard-to-reach spots—and a 2014 Cochrane review of gave powered models a slight edge over the classic toothbrush. Ready to put some power onto your pearly whites? Try one of these dentist-recommended best electric toothbrushes.

7 Best Electric Toothbrushes

1. Oral-B GENIUS X Electric Toothbrush – $59.99

“The Oral-B Genius X is the number one recommended brush by dentists and superior in a number of ways,” says Jonathan Levine, oral health expert and dental specialist and associate professor at NYU Dental School. “The oscillating and rotating bristles are moving 48,000 brush movements versus the 600 that a manual brush will do to disrupt and remove plaque, and it’s 32% better than the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean.”

“Toothbrushes are as individual as automobiles. Everyone has a preference. I personally use a Sonicare DiamondClean toothbrush,” says John Comisi, a dentist based in Ithaca, New York. “I like its small diameter toothbrush head, with a 2-minute timer. It comes with a very convenient travel case. Overall, it is probably the electronic toothbrush I recommend most.”

3. Pro 1000 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush – $31.47

With over 7,500 five-star reviews, it’s no surprise this Oral-B is one of the best-selling electric toothbrushes on Amazon. It has all the benefits of an electric toothbrush, like a rotating head to remove plaque, a pressure sensor to prevent you from brushing too hard, and a two-minute timer — at a fraction of the cost of many others! While it only has one mode, you can use it with other Oral-B replacement toothbrush heads, including whitening options or ones with soft bristles for sensitive teeth and gums.

4. DiamondClean Smart – $329

Ever wondered what toothbrush your dentist uses at home? Here it is: DiamondClean by Phillips Sonicare “Having tried nearly every toothbrush on the market, this is the one my wife and I use for our teeth!” says Dr. Reynolds. It has different settings like Clean mode and Deep Clean+ mode, plus brush heads that address specific concerns like plaque control or gum care. It also works with the Sonicare app to guide you during brushing and alert to any missed spots.

5. Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean – $50

Philips prides itself on using a unique sonic technology that uses fluid to gently remove plaque both along the gum line and in between teeth. All it takes is two minutes of brushing and within two weeks you’re bound to notice a much healthier set of pearly whites. Cleaning results are a top priority (you’ll be alerted to replace your brush head when it’s no longer performing with optimal impact), but we’re also super into its sleek black design. A much needed addition to your bathroom shelf.

6. Fairywill P11+ – $60

Fairywill P11+

An Amazon bestseller, we were intrigued to see how this lesser-known oral-care brand stood up to the relative oral big shots. The short answer is, well, it doesn’t, but that’s not to write it off completely. At only £29.99, this is as nicely designed a toothbrush you’ll get for the price, sitting on your sink-side looking plenty pricier than that thanks to its sleek back body and golden light-up ring. But unlike its pricier competition, a straightforward operating system incorporates only three brushing modes – clean, soft and massage – only one of which (the first) packs the oomph to do a half-decent job (those opting for soft may as well squeeze the toothpaste right onto an index finger).

That being said, there’s one standout feature that gives Fairywill quite the edge: battery life. There’ll be no more leaving your brush to charge overnight, with two hours plugged in (to a USB charger, rather than a pesky two-pin socket) providing 30 days of juice.

7. Foreo Issa 2 Silicone Sonic Toothbrush – $188

Keep forgetting to charge your toothbrush? You’re going to want the Issa 2, which claims to last for a whole year on a single charge – a relief for your growing collection of two-pronged charges fast taking up all the space in your bathroom. Its bristles are unconventional, too, made from silicone that channels the brush’s 11,000 high intensity pulsations to help break up plaque. A good choice for anyone with softer gums.
