I’m a Dentist and These are the Best Electric Toothbrushes at Every Budget
Well + Good asks one of the best dentists in NYC to evaluate electric toothbrushes that fit a variety of budgets. Dr. Jonathan Levine, Founder of JBL NYC, comments:
“Research shows that even with the best manual toothbrushing habits, electric toothbrushes are more effective at removing plaque, whitening teeth, stimulating and improving gum health, and a person’s overall oral hygiene.”
Compare electric toothbrush head designs with micro bristles that amplify your tooth brushing, automatic settings to alert you when you are done or brushing too hard, teeth whitening, and the most-considered cost of buying. While the prices vary widely, they are significantly more expensive than standard tooth brushes. Take a look at the Oral-B Pro Cross Action 1000, Burst Sonic Toothbrush, Pro-Sys Variosonic, and the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Classic.
“Investing in an electric toothbrush doesn’t have to mean breaking the bank on a $300 speciality item. While it certainly can, there are also plenty of effective options on the market that won’t leave quite so big of an impact on your next credit card statement. Here, dentists share their picks for the best electric toothbrush for every budget, so you don’t have to sacrifice any extra green for the sake of a white smile. But remember: You can’t replace good brushing habits no matter how fancy your toothbrush is.”
