Top 5 Electric Toothbrushes

Electric toothbrushes make brushing easier, but they also can do a better job of removing plaque and tarter from your teeth. Here are some of the best:

Oral B Genius Pro 8000

You can connect this toothbrush to your smartphone via Bluetooth and it will help you locate the areas that you have missed while brushing. If you are over-brushing your teeth and gums, the pressure sensor technology in this brush will automatically slow down the rotation of the brush and alert you as well.

With 6 cleaning modes -- daily clean, gum care, sensitive, whitening, tongue cleaning, and pro-clean, the toothbrush allows its users to choose the setting recommended for them. The head, which is rounded, allows the brush to reach a tooth from a 16° angle between the teeth to completely get rid of the plaque. The battery of the toothbrush remains charged for up till 12 days with a USB charger and travel case.

Phillips Sonicare Diamond Clean

Priced from $119-$190, this electric toothbrush justifies its price with high quality cleaning and a beautiful, sleek design. The manufacturer promises that it “removes up to 10x more plaque” than any other toothbrush..

Whereas many brushes spin at 2,500 – 7,700 rpm, the Sonic model can go up to 30,000 rotations per minute. The toothbrush offers five different modes: clean, white, sensitive, gum care, and deep clean. The brush also has a three-week battery life and comes with a USB charger, which makes it easier to take along when traveling. The preset timer option present allows the user to set the time interval specified by the doctors in Rogoff Dental Group.
