What Makes the Best Electric Toothbrushes

1). Should I Buy a Brand Name?

There is literally 100s of brands out there, keeping to the Phillips and Oral B electric toothbrushes of this world would be the safe choose. Studies have shown the Phillips SoniCare has a slightly more effective than the Oral-B in reducing Gingival Inflammation which therefore improves Periodontal. Comparing with the more main use for a ET, “removing plaque”, there is no clinical evidence for the dynamic fluid activity of the SoniCare toothbrush being more effective in removal more or less plaque than an Oral-B oscillating/rotating electric toothbrush.

2). Battery or Rechargeable?

Let’s face it, who wants to being hunting around in the morning for some batteries. Not me! In my eyes and I believe the majority of the human population, the best electric toothbrushes are definitely the rechargeable ones

3). Pressure Indicators

This I think is a must. We are all prone to brushing a little too hard, this damages both our gums and enamel. A visible light will come on when pushing too hard

4). Brush Movement

  • Oscillating-rotating technology

Brush heads oscillate and rotate to break up plaque (Oral-B’s)

  • Sonic technology

Uses larger, manual style brush (Phillips SoniCare)

5). Speed

The faster the speed the better for breaking up plaque, but with speed comes more cost. Beware though, children under 5 using the faster ET can damage there unformed gums, so look for the much slower kids electric toothbrush.

6). Quad timers

This is a great little addition. Available on many ET now and some even come with visible timers and wireless guides, to show how long you have been brushing for. Quad timers will usually buzz or vibrate after 30 seconds, which signals it's time to move to a different part of your mouth.

7). The Smart/Tablet App

On some ET you can even sync with your device and track how well you have brushed and how long. I think this great for children.

8). Price

You can spend upwards to a $1000! but $100 to $200 price range is perfect and will get near enough the same clean. You can get an all singing all dancing brush, but hey, like we said before, do we really want to be spending hours in the morning cleaning our teeth.

So What is the Best Electric Toothbrushes

$0-$100

  • Philips Sonicare HX5610/30 Essence 5600 Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush, Frustration Free Packaging

$100-$200

  • Oral-B Professional Healthy Clean + Floss Action Precision 5000 Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush
  • Philips Sonicare HX9332/05 DiamondClean Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush

Does an Electric Toothbrush Really Clean Better?

The common Toothbrush has hardly changed since the early 1930’s all except for the introduction of the electric brush, which hit the grocery stores and pharmacies in the mid part of the swinging 60s. Since then a lot of people have always wondered, are they really worth the extra money?

Well, research has shown that a massive 90% of us do not brush our teeth in the correct manner! So saying that I think it is a must to have a good electric toothbrush in our households.
