Get pearly whites with the best electric toothbrush

An electric toothbrush can remove up to 100% more plaque than just a normal toothbrush, protect your gums from overbrushing and thanks to built-in timers, ensure you brush for the recommended amount of time. If you’re looking to take the plunge into the world of automated gnasher polishers, we recommend our overall choice, the no-nonsense Oral-B Pro 650 Cross Action option.

Tickle your ivories

If you’re new to the world of electric toothbrushing, we recommend either the Philips Sonicare CleanCare+, or our overall best choice pick, the Oral-B Pro 650 Cross Action toothbrush which is very simple to operate but offers a vast improvement over traditional brushes.

Another thing to consider is battery life. The Soniclean Platinum HDX will give you a remarkable six weeks battery life, while the Fairywill Sonic follows close behind with a month’s worth of cleaning and thanks to its waterproof rating, can also be used in the shower.
