When it comes to oral hygiene, you should always opt for the best oral products. Healthier gum and teeth will bring you a high quality of life, and a white smile is always what people notice first when they see you. This is why electric toothbrushes are the number one item when it comes to people who really care for their teeth and gum.
What are they scored on?
Good electric toothbrushes will give you the after-dentist clean sensation after only one use. When used properly, they can also give you whiter teeth and keep your gum healthier. Also, because their heads are slightly smaller than manual ones, electric toothbrushes tend to make easy to clean those hard-to-reach areas, such as the teeth located at the very back on the mouth. The more precise mechanism allow to brush each teeth better, or to reduce the amount of pressure and injuries caused on the gum.
Cost: They don’t have to break the bank
When choosing between the best products, it is better to invest a little bit more money, a product that will give you the best results for its value. Of course, you can buy a 10-20 dollars electric toothbrush at your local grocery store. However, these cheap models are barely a step up from manual brushing. Also, because they are often not rechargeable, you may end up paying much more just in batteries. On the other hand, you certainly do not have to spend 200 dollars to get quality results. Good electric tooth brushes come in different price ranges, and it is up to you to decide whether additional features are important to you.
To help you make an informed decision, we’ve put together what we think are the three bestselling electric toothbrushes currently available of three popular brands: Sonicare, Oral-B and Waterpik. Each brand has its advantages and disadvantages, but are three overall great choices.
Best Rated Electric Toothbrushes
In a lifetime, chances are that you have used a manual Oral-B toothbrush. If you thought they were good, wait until you try the electric Oral-B toothbrush.
Being one of the favorite, this awesome product uses an impressive technology that combines both oscillations and pulsations. They have smaller head brushes, which make them the favorite for people with a smaller mouth. What really makes wowed me in first place with the SmartSeries 5000 is the pressure sensor, which automatically detect if you are putting too much pressure on the toothbrush. If the amount of pressure detected is too high, the toothbrush simply stops, preventing you from damaging your teeth and gum over time. The visual timer is also a great addition to a regular toothbrush, at it allows you to visualize exactly when to change side when brushing. If you think it is a bulky gadget to have in your bathroom when not in use, you will be happy to learn that it can also be used as a clock when you are not brushing.
One of my favorite of all electric tooth brushes has always been the Sonicare Flexcare by Philips. A few months ago, Philips has announced its newer model, the FlexCare Plus, which is fancier version of the FlexCare. The Sonicare FlexCare offer an amazing brushing with the patented sonic technology. With this technology, the bristles move so fast that it remove every little bits of food stuck to your teeth. This awesome toothbrush is highly recommended by many dentists, and will have your dentist or dental hygienist wonder where the cavities and plaque went in so little time. Although it doesn’t have the visual quad timer the Oral-B has, the Sonicare has a built-in quadpacer, which is basically a beep every 30 seconds to let you know that it is time to switch to the other side of the jaw. The Sonicare Flexcare Plus also comes with a sanitizer, which kills most, if not, all the bacterias and germs left on your toothbrush head.
By the way, although the Flexcare Plus offer some nice upgrades, if you already have the Flexcare, I would suggest you stay with it until it is time to change your toothbrushes, as the changes are minimal enough that you do not need to invest another chunk of money in the slightly upgraded model.
My last pick is the Waterpik Sensonic Toothbrush, which is one of the best option out there if you don’t want to spend over 100 dollars on a toothbrush. If you are looking for a less pricey model, you might want to consider this one. The Waterpik Sensonic is very similar to the Sonicare. It uses a sonic technology as well, uses similar brushes (the square/rectangular ones) and has a built-in quadpacer that beeps every 30 seconds. But the Waterpik is not only a copy of the well loved Sonicare, it has some great features of its own, such as the use of two different types of brush heads for superior cleaning. As a matter of fact, the toothbrush comes with a standard head brush and the “interdental brush head”, which was created to help you brush between your teeth.
The Waterpik may not be the high end models the Oral-B 5000 or the Sonicare Flexcare Plus are, but is an overall good product for its price. Plus it is so much affordable!
