It’s time I got clean: I hate brushing my teeth. I do it because I have to, but it’s a time-consuming, uncomfortable process — standing in front of the mirror for two minutes can seem like an eternity. My dentist says I brush too hard. And don’t even get me started flossing.
Electric toothbrushes make the whole experience easier. Their vibrations and vibrations can remove plaque on your teeth and gums more effectively, and most brushing models have a timer that encourages you to brush for the full two minutes. We tested different types, from basic models to the deluxe models with oscillating brushes and everything in between. We found that a good brush doesn’t have to cost you more than a few Hamiltons. Below you will find the best electric toothbrushes you can buy. We also have eco-friendly non-electric options if you don’t want to have another device to charge.
