If you really do care about the health and hygiene of your teeth, you probably know just how important it is to use an electric toothbrush.
If you are still not sure about that just think about the fact that an electronic toothbrush will be able to gently brush your teeth thousands of times more than you could with a regular brush.
Best Electric Toothbrushes of 2020
And all the newer models also come with some type of pressure gage so, even though you are brushing the teeth at a faster speed, you are not actually damaging them in any way.
However, here at Best Reviews Advisor, we understand that it can be difficult to pick out the right toothbrush for your needs so we have created a top 10 of the best electric toothbrushes available.
1. Oral-B Professional Healthy Clean 5000
If money were not a concern at all the Oral B Professional 5000 would be the only toothbrush we would review for you. It does everything you would want from a toothbrush and more.
It delivers 40,000 pulsations per minute to dislodge any residue or plague and, at the same time, has 8,800 oscillations per minute to clean away the plague.
But that is only the beginning because what we really love about the Oral B 5000 is the fact that it comes with 5 pre-programmed modes so that you can use not only for daily cleaning but also for sensitive teeth, to massage the gums, and to polish the teeth, as well as to go through a deep cleaning cycle when you really feel the need to.
Lastly, it can last for 10 days, presuming you brush your teeth twice a day, for two minutes and it has a visible battery indicator on the handle so that you can know when to charge it.
2. Philips Sonicare Essence Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush
The only problem with the Oral B 5000 is that it is basically the most expensive toothbrush that we are going to feature here and one of the more expensive toothbrushes in the world.
The Philips Sonicare Essence, on the other hand, is one of the cheapest electric toothbrushes you will be able to find. It does not have the same type of pulsating technology as Oral B, but it does use sonic pulses to break up the plague.
In our experience, and according to several trials, the Sonicare technology is not as efficient as the pulsating technology, but then, as long as you are using it daily, the Sonicare Essence should be just fine for you.
3. Oral-B Professional Healthy Clean Precision 1000
The answer Oral B was able to produce to the Sonicare Essence is the Oral B Professional 1000. It only delivers 20,000 pulsations per minute, but the same 8,800 oscillations per minute like it bigger brother, the 5000.
Still, it comes at almost the same price as the Sonicare Essence and it still is better at breaking up plague. However, the reason you are paying the big bucks for the Professional 5000 is that the Professional 1000 does not have hose interesting pre-programmed modes and, although it will simply stop brushing if you apply too much pressure, it will not give you a visual signal.
It will also only work for 7 days on one charge under the same conditions as the Oral B 5000.
4. Philips Sonicare HX6511/50 Easy Clean Toothbrush
As you can see our list is somewhat dominated by Philips and Oral B products simply because these two manufacturers are among the very few who really take innovation to heart and try to deliver new levels of excellence.
We are also going to look at a few electric toothbrushes or alternatives produced by other companies but for now, we have to dedicate this spot on our list of the top 10 best electric toothbrushes to the Philips Easy Clean.
It is slightly more expensive than the Philips Essence but it comes with a built-in 2-minute pacer that signals you when it is time to move from one quadrant of the mouth to another.
Besides this interesting feature, we were also very impressed that the Philips Consumer actually managed to get a 4.6 Amazon star rating, more than any other electric toothbrush produced by either Philips or Oral B.
5. Oral-B Professional Healthy Clean 4000
If you are looking for a toothbrush that will deliver the perfect balance between price and features then we recommend the Oral B Professional 4000.
It only has the sensitive, whitening, and massage pre-programmed modes but those should be more than enough considering that you will be paying almost half of what the Oral-B 5000 would cost you. It still delivers 40,000 pulsations and 8,800 oscillations per minute as the 5000 and it lasts for 10 days on one charge under the same conditions.
It also lights up when you are applying too much pressure and it also stops working. So you really get the best of both worlds, a good price and a good amount of features.
6. Oral-B Professional Sensitive Gum Care Precision 3000
The Oral B Professional 3000 is the one electric toothbrush that we really do not think is worth buying. It still has some excellent features like sensitive and whitening cleaning modes and it lights up when you are applying too much pressure.
The problem is that it only lasts for 7 days on one charge and it lacks the gums massage mode and it costs just a couple of bucks less than the Oral B 4000. Still, we have to admit that, at 4.4 stars on Amazon, it got a better rating than the Oral B 4000.
7. Waterpik WP-900 Water Flosser and Sonic Toothbrush Complete Care
The most interesting feature of the Waterpik WP-900 is not actually the electric toothbrush but the water pick that comes along with it. This machine is basically a dental floss and a plague remover that works only on the principle of water pressure.
The fact that you are getting an electronic toothbrush on top to really give your teeth a professional finish is just gravy at this point.
8. Philips Sonicare HX6731/02 Healthywhite Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush
The Philips Sonicare Healthy White is the toothbrush to choose if you prefer Philips products over Oral B and you need a whitening program on your toothbrush.
It is a relatively expensive toothbrush considering that it only has the whitening and the regular cleaning modes but, if you have more faith in this manufacturer, then the Healthy White Philips electronic toothbrush is the one you should go for.
9. Philips Sonicare Elite Premium Edition Toothbrush with Quadpacer
If you liked the time feature on the Philips Easy Care, but were not too happy about the price, the Philips Sonicare Elite is the package deal for you.
Basically, you get two electric toothbrushes with the Quadpacer technology that tells you when it is time to move on to another quarter of the mouth. The only thing is that you need to find a friend with whom to share the cost so as to make this investment a really good one.
10. Health HP-STX Ultra High Powered Sonic Electric Toothbrush
Finally, we are going to close our list of the best electric toothbrushes of with a product that has earned a 4.4 star rating on Amazon and that was not produced by Philips or Oral B.
Health is a relatively new company in this space but it has managed to come up with a more than a decent product, and we would be remiss not to mention them here.
