It is no secret that the best way to ensure that your teeth stay in a healthy condition is brushing them at least twice a day (or preferably, after every meal, but who has time for that?). Still, there is much more to oral hygiene than simply brushing the teeth – the type of toothpaste, technique, movements, and so on and so forth.
But another aspect of oral hygiene that most of us neglect is the type of toothbrush we use. While your standard, manual toothbrush works just as fine, an increasing number of dentists and oral hygiene professionals are stressing the benefits and qualities of electric toothbrushes. To support that idea, in this article, we will be taking a look at the best the market has to offer in terms of electric toothbrushes, and we will discuss some good oral hygiene practices as well.
Our first addition to this list is the Waterpik Complete Care Water Flosser, a sturdy electric toothbrush that will carry you through many a cleaning session. What makes this device stand out from the others and one of the best electric toothbrushes on the market is the sonic aqua jet, which adds an additional cleaning element by allowing users to carefully clear their gums from any unwanted intruders. Furthermore, the sonic aqua jet (which looks similar to a tool that you would see in a dentist’s office) is capable of reaching and clearing places that your standard electric toothbrushes usually miss.
While this factor alone makes the Waterpik worth buying, however, there is more to this product than a seemingly tangential cleaning gimmick. This toothbrush comes with a technology that improves the bristle speed by about 25%, as opposed to other models. The brush itself is, as expected, high-quality, so you can rest assured that you will not have to deal with annoying pieces of food sticking around even after a thorough scrub.
We could not write an article about the best cleaning practices and electric toothbrushes without mentioning at least a couple of products from Oral B. This model, powered by Braun and called the Pro 7500, has a few additional features that ensure that a great user experience and longevity.
First off, thanks to its 360 LED Smart Ring, you can customize your brushing experience in any way you like by using the official Oral B smartphone app. A second great feature that we thought is worth mentioning is the three-dimensional brushing motion, which rotates, oscillates and pulsates by taking into account teeth arrangement and angling.
Last but not least, this electric toothbrush comes with five cleaning modes, each with an alert timer that lasts about 30 seconds. If you are not very impressed by its smartphone connectivity, this feature alone makes the Oral B 7500 worth purchasing, because the timer lets the user know when to switch to another section of the mouth. However, there is a slight drawback, namely the fact that you have to keep the charger connections and handle as dry as possible, otherwise it might start to rust. Other than that, the Pro 7500 is a sound option.
According to the description page, the producers of this particular electric toothbrush claim that it is capable of reducing up to 10 times more plaque than a standard manual toothbrush. And considering the fact that Philips has a long history of delivering high-quality and lasting products, it is hard to contest this claim.
In terms of features, the Flexcare Platinum comes with nine fully customizable brushing modes, as well as a pressure sensor that lets you know if you are focusing on an area more than you should. Other than that, it has a sleek, ergonomic design and a good body, so you can expect it to last for many brushing sessions. Moreover, to ensure that you can use your toothbrush for an extended period of time, don’t forget to also opt for a toothbrush sanitizer.
The saying ‘’don’t judge a book by its cover’’ – for the sake of avoiding the clichéd ‘’size does not matter’’ catchphrase – will become especially relevant as soon as you get your hands on this electric toothbrush from Rembrandt. Despite the fact that it is smaller than your average electric toothbrush, according to the producers, it can remove seven times more plaque than others, and its body is quite sturdy, too.
Like other electric toothbrushes, it has several modes – daily, max and gentle – that allow users to customize their brushing experience according to their wishes and make brushing in circular motions easier than ever. This feature is helpful as it contributes to a correct brushing session. While it does not have any fancy features such as mobile connectivity and sensor alerts, for $35, you get a decent electric toothbrush that will carry you throughout the years.
This is a list of the best electric toothbrushes that will help you not only keep the teeth in a good condition, but also instill good and healthy cleaning practices. Whether you are looking for something with fancy features and lots of customization or you simply want something that is goods at its job, you will surely find something worth your attention in this guide.
