While routine checkups and professional cleanings are a must for a happy, healthy mouth, they’re also not the end-all-be-all. Good oral care starts at home, and that means investing in a superstar toothbrush.
Unfortunately, toothbrushes are not created equal. While both electric and manual brushes are A-OK according to the American Dental Association, many electric brushes have added bells and whistles, like timers and app compatibility, both of which help you remember to reach those spots in the back of your mouth and of course, brush for the appropriate amount of time. The Philips Sonicare DailyClean 1100 Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush—on sale for $20 at Amazon, down from $25—takes it one step further: It’s as gentle as it is effective, and that’s why dentists can’t stop raving about it.
Shoppers shared that their dentists suggested this brush in particular.
“My dentist suggested this electric toothbrush but told me to give it a week to get used to it,” said one shopper. “Very strange the first couple of days, especially if the plastic vibrates on your teeth. But, it leaves my teeth squeaky clean way better than a regular brush! Beeps after 30 sec to move to the next section. Ok to sit on the charger all day and has a plastic cap to keep your brush clean. Glad I made the switch!”
Even dentists notice when patients make the switch.
“I could tell a difference right away,” one shopper shared. “My dentist commented on how great my teeth and gums looked at my recent appointment.”
Why all the rave reviews? For starters, the brush comes with a two-minute timer, which encourages proper brushing time. A quadpacer also lets you know when you spent enough time in each section of your mouth, and when it’s time to move on. The brush is also safe to use on braces, veneers, fillings and crowns, plus the bristles are designed to prevent and remove plaque buildup on your pearly whites. It stays charged for a full 14 days, too.
“So underrated,” one reviewer shared. “A dental assistant recommended it because I was in pain and needed work and she said hey take your time, go buy this toothbrush and you'll be okay for a bit! I bought one and within like a day my pain went away!”
The top-rated brush — it has over 1,700 perfect five-star reviews — won’t stay in stock for long. Be sure to grab it ASAP — your dentist will thank you!
