The Best Electric Toothbrushes

You may think you’re doing a good job taking care of your teeth. But then you head to the dentist, and they inform you that you’ve got some gingivitis or plaque buildup. Your dentist may be concerned about your developing periodontitis if these things can’t be remedied.

Your dentist may make some suggestions as to how you can fight gum disease to prevent your gingivitis from advancing. One of the suggestions often made is to brush with an electric toothbrush. Electric toothbrushes can help to remove plaque – maybe even better than a traditional toothbrush. 

If you’re considering purchasing an electric toothbrush, take a look at these that are often recommended by dentists.

Phillips Sonicare Diamond Clean

Phillips Sonicare has long been a leader in the electric toothbrush business, and the Diamond Clean is one of their highest rated products. The Diamond Clean includes an “AdaptiveClean” brush head specifically designed to help remove plaque from your teeth. This brush head removes 10X more plaque than a traditional toothbrush and has five brushing modes to fit all of your needs.

Oral B Pro 1000 Power

While brushing your teeth is important, how long you brush your teeth may be equally important. Dentists recommend brushing for two minutes twice per day and with the Oral B Pro 1000 Power you can be sure you are brushing for the recommended two minutes as there is an in-handle two-minute timer.

This toothbrush also has 3D cleaning action which oscillates, rotates and pulsates to break up more plaque than a regular toothbrush.

Phillips Sonicare 2 Series

If you’re looking for an excellent electric toothbrush that won’t break the bank, the Phillips Sonicare 2 Series may fit your needs. This toothbrush comes with the “ProResults” plaque control brush head that helps to remove 6X more plaque than a manual toothbrush. It also includes a two-minute timer to ensure you are brushing for the proper amount of time.

Sonic Electric Toothbrush

With four modes of cleaning, including “gum care,” the Sonic Electric Toothbrush is another excellent choice to help fight gum disease. This toothbrush delivers 38,000 brush strokes per minute and has a long battery life making it perfect for travel.

If you’re trying to get your gum disease under control, brushing with an electric toothbrush and products specifically designed to control periodontal disease, like Perfect Smile Oral Care products, can go a long way to help. Gum disease can be reversed when treatment is started early – so don’t delay.
