The 10 Best Electric Toothbrushes

This review has been updated 22 times since it was first published in March of 2015. Electric toothbrushes can help you maintain stronger and whiter teeth, fresher breath, and healthier gums, leaving you feeling like you just had a dental cleaning every day. Clinical trials prove they remove considerably more plaque than manual brushes, making it a no-brainer to make the switch. In many cases, the upfront cost will quickly be made up for by the money you save on dentist visits.
