Top 3 Toothbrushes

In the world of toothbrushes, there are many options.  The good ole' manual brush does the job, yet an electric toothbrush is going to do the job best. On average you'll get 300 strokes per minute with a manual brush versus up to 31,000 vibrating rotations per minute with an electric toothbrush.  The choice is simple.  Electric is the way to go!  The best part is the brush does all the work for you.  So here are our top 3 Electric Toothbrush picks for you!

#3 Oral-B 4000

Oral B 4000

The Oral-B 4000, 5000, and 7000 series brushes are all great choices. The 4000 is a bit less expensive than the others and still offers fantastic performance.  This will clean your teeth just as well as any Sonicare and it’s head replacements are much less expensive. The battery will last a long time given user reviews of the brush and your gums will love you for using it. This is the best Oral-B you can get for under $100.

#2 Sonicare Flexcare Plus

Sonicare Flexcare Plus

This is the best Philips Sonicare that you can buy. The pros of this toothbrush include: its ability to improve gum health over manual brushes, it’s precision timer, 31,000 brush strokes per minute, and a few preset modes. The preset modes are cool however it seems like very few people would use the refresh or massage modes. How often do you feel like massaging your gums? There is a sensitive setting which brushes more gently, which can come in handy. Overall this is an excellent solution for long term oral care and worth every penny.

#1 Oral-B 5000

Oral B 5000

The first thing to know about the best powered toothbrush you can buy is that there is a more expensive Oral-B 7000 series brush, but as a smart consumer you should avoid the 7000. The extra cost gets you nothing more than a travel case, and a tongue brushing mode. So assuming you would rather hold on to your extra bucks, we are left with the 5000 series as the cream of the crop. It does the job and does it well!  The replacement heads are inexpensive compared to Philips Sonicare, so the brush will be more cost effective to run in the long term.  Overall, it is the best electric toothbrush on the market giving you the most bang for your buck!
