Which electric toothbrush should I get?

Deciding which model of electric toothbrush is best for you is largely up to your personal preference; however, there are a few features that many dentists recommend you look for. Here are a few of our suggestions:


Built-In Timer

Two minutes is the amount of time that most dentists recommend you spend brushing your teeth. An increasing number of electric toothbrushes come with built-in timers that go off after two minutes. These handy timers take the guesswork out of brushing. If you've just been estimating two minutes you may be surprised at just how long two minutes really is!

Round Rotating Head

Electric toothbrushes that feature round rotating heads mimic the ideal circular brushing motion recommended by many dentists. Now all you have to do is move the toothbrush over your teeth and it will make the circular motions for you. Brushing your teeth thoroughly has never been easier! 

Small Brush Head

Models of electric toothbrushes with a small brush heads make it easier to reach the nooks and crannies behind your front teeth and in the back of your mouth. Brushes with small heads simply provide better maneuverability and access to tight spaces.

Other Optional Features

Some other great features available on electric toothbrushes include: pressure sensors, (useful for those who brush too hard, or have sensitive gums), and timers that go off every 30 seconds, so that you know exactly how long to brush each quadrant of your mouth.
