Top 5 Best Electric Toothbrush | 2017 Reviews

A person’s smile speaks a lot about his or her confidence. After all, would you really want to show off your teeth when you do not feel like they are white, or at least, clean enough for the whole world to see?

But, getting those pearly whites is not just the work of a dentist. It’s a combination of a variety of things including the toothpaste, floss and, most importantly, the toothbrush that you use. Many people will tend to overlook it and say that all toothbrushes are the same but we beg to disagree. Some brushes have hard bristles that are a little too harsh for those with more sensitive gums such as those of kids.

More than that, there is also the issue of actually using the toothbrush. Parents – we all know how kids can be. We may have told them to brush their teeth but they probably just put the toothpaste and stuck the brush in their mouths and nothing else.

Why would your family need an electric toothbrush?

An electric toothbrush is a lazy kid’s best friend. Just stick them inside the mouth and it basically does all the hard work for you. It gets to those hard-to-reach areas such as in between teeth and around the gum line and you do not even to constantly be in the lookout at what your child does. Plus, all things ‘automatic’ usually catches the attention of young children and makes getting them to brush their teeth a much easier task to do. No more tears and drama – they will probably want to brush their teeth all day long.​​

The same thing is basically the same for adults. Adults love to be assured that these powerful toothbrushes are able to leave their mouths feeling clean and plaque-free without having to do a lot of muscle lifting.​

Oral-B Pro 7000 SmartSeries Toothbrush

Oral-B Pro 7000 SmartSeries Toothbrush

With everything connected to the Internet, you probably wish your toothbrush is, too. And guess what, this ultra powerful Oral B electric toothbrush is just the answer to what you have been looking for.

The Oral-B 7000 is the first of its kind in that it comes with Bluetooth connectivity that will allow the toothbrush to communicate with an app installed on your smartphone. The app is not just there to monitor your brushing habits but it also helps motivate, focus, track and sense it so you stick with your routines and achieve clean and healthy teeth.

In terms of brushing modes, this Braun electric toothbrush definitely comes packed with a lot of power. With it, you can switch to different modes including gum care, sensitive, whitening, deep clean and tongue cleaner but you can also opt to use different types of Oral-B replacement heads.

Another cool feature that we love about this Oral-B toothbrush is that has a pressure sensor which will let you know if you are brushing too hard. You certainly do not want to hurt your gums, right? The Bluetooth technology, pressure sensors and brush head compatibility are our reasons for putting this one in the number one spot.

Philips Sonicare DiamondClean

Philips Sonicare DiamondClean

The Sonicare DiamondClean is considered as the most loved and the best electric toothbrush for many American consumers and their dentists, so it isn’t surprising why it is on the top of our list.

From the name itself, the Sonicare toothbrush uses sonic technology to power itself up and clean the teeth up to seven times better than a manual toothbrush can. It comes with seven different brushing modes, all guaranteed to help get those healthy and beautiful pearly whites. If you have trouble taking coffee, tea or tobacco stains off of your teeth, this toothbrush will help you with just that. You can get whiter teeth within just a week of using the DiamondClean and healthier gums in two weeks.

But, another thing we really love about this Philips toothbrush is that it comes with amazing technology. The glass that comes with the package has a conduction technology so that it charges a resting toothbrush, as long as it is connected to the charging base. Even its travel case charges the toothbrush if you connect it via USB or plug it to a wall. Cool, huh?

Sonicare toothbrushes also have a timer to let encourage you to brush for two minutes and a Quadpacer that will tell you to change quadrants every 30 seconds. And, unlike other electric toothbrushes in the market, this one also has an illuminated display which gives off an even more high-tech feel.​

While there is no doubt that its sleek, modern design and the cool charging stations make it a strong contender against the Oral B toothbrush, we feel like it cannot compete with the Bluetooth technology and brush head compatibility. We will have to bring this one to the second spot on our list.

Pursonic S520 Black Ultra High Powered Sonic Toothbrush

Pursonic S520 Black Ultra High Powered Sonic Toothbrush

Running at almost 40,000 strokes per minute, this ultrasonic toothbrush is among the fastest and most powerful in the market. It basically works much like its many expensive counterparts but at nearly a third of the cost.

What we love most about this Pursonic electric toothbrush is the package inclusions. Just think about it, at less than $50, you do not only get the actual electric toothbrush but you also get four other brush heads for the rest of the family to use, 12 replacement heads and a docking station that charges the brush. The docking station itself leaves a very small footprint on your sink so you do not have to worry about your toothbrush set taking up a big space. Its space-saving stand already holds the toothbrush and the four other brush heads. Even its travel case can carry up to six brush heads.

If you are worried about its cleaning power, don’t be. Just try and feel your teeth after running 40,000 strokes each minute and you will clearly notice the difference. It also has a 2-minute timer and a 30-second vibrating to alert you that is time to change quadrants of your mouth.

We just had to push this one down to number three because we do not feel that its three brushing modes are sufficient enough to remove those stubborn coffee stains in our teeth.

Waterpik Complete Care Water Flosser and Sonic Toothbrush

Waterpik Complete Care Water Flosser and Sonic Toothbrush

The right oral hygiene routine is never complete without flossing but the latter can be so inconvenient at times, we tend to skip it and just go with brushing instead. The Waterpik Complete Care might just be the best toothbrush and flossing system available in the market as it comes with everything that you need to make sure that your teeth remains squeaky clean at the end of each day.

This one comes with a unique flossing system that uses water pressure to clean in between teeth and below the gum line. This means that even if you have braces, crowns, implants or periodontal pockets, you can still get to those hard-to-reach areas without a hassle. It uses 10 to 100psi which you can customize and take full control of and ensure you do not make a mess during the cleaning process. You can even use warm water if you have sensitive teeth or add mouthwash for extra cleaning power.

While the entire kit looks very intimidating with its use water reservoir, it does come with a premium travel case that can store both the brush and the tip. This one also has a smaller version for kids to use. Truly, we love the Waterpik for its flossing action but this might not be the best choice for an oral hygiene system for the frequent travelers. Not only is the kit huge, its voltage is only compatible within North America and its warranty may become void if used outside of North America. The size and incompatibility issues bring this complete kit to the fourth position on our list.

iBrush SonicWave Electric Toothbrush with UV Sanitizer

iBrush SonicWave Electric Toothbrush with UV Sanitizer

Searching for the best electric toothbrush available in the market is a tough job but we have found one that competes well enough to make it to the fifth spot in our list.

The iBrush sonic toothbrush is one that has been designed by a dentist with the patients in mind. We love that it works quite well, especially when competing against the big names, and yet it costs less than half the price of the branded electric toothbrushes.

While this electric toothbrush only works in three seemingly gentle modes (normal, soft and massage), it does run up to 48,000 strokes per minute which means that it can definitely take out all those plaque and bacteria trying to build inside your mouth. Coffee, tea and tobacco stains? Worry not because this extremely powerful toothbrush will do all the hard work for you.​

Of course, it also comes with standard electric toothbrush features such as a two-minute timer to get you to brush and clean your teeth for a full two minutes as well as a 30-second QuadSense technology to make sure you go through all the quadrants of your mouth. But, the iBrush is not just everything that the other toothbrushes are made of. What makes it stand out from the rest is its UV Sanitizing Light which continues to clean the iBrush even after using and rinsing it. It’s quite good because, pretty sure, we won’t get everything out in just one rinse. Once you replace the cap on the iBrush, the UV light automatically turns off and does its job.

We also love that the iBrush comes with a water-resistant docking station – scary to have this one near the sink, otherwise – and it uses ion technology so you will never overcharge your iBrush. Despite all these awesome features, we think that the iBrush still has a lot to improve on. Adding a travel pack to the kit could also help bring it to a position higher than the fifth spot.​

That’s it. We hope that you have a clearer idea on what product to use based on our electric toothbrush reviews. Beyond the price and extra features, remember to consider its compatibility, durability, and, most importantly, its efficiency in simply cleaning your teeth.
