We know that toothbrushes come in all different sizes, colors, and price points. We also know that all of them do the same thing: Clean your teeth.
But according to Good Housekeeping, there are two best toothbrushes that stand out from the pack. They are the so-called “Cadillac” of toothbrushes; brushes that reportedly do all the work for you.
Pricey, but Powerful Toothbrushes
Good Housekeeping calls the Philips DiamondClean electric toothbrush a powerful toothbrush — and for good reason. This slim and sleek brush has a clean interface (only one button turns it on and switches between modes, and each mode is illuminated when in use) and it comes with a drinking-style glass charging station. There are 5 options, ranging from a basic “clean” mode to the minute-long “polish” level meant to brighten your front teeth.
The consumer testers said the brush felt “like a pressure washer for your mouth.” Another commented, “After brushing, my teeth felt like I just had a cleaning at the dentist.” In particular, several testers commented on the smaller size of the brush and brush head, which made it easier to reach every single tooth while brushing.
The Journal of Dental Research found that this brush removes up to five times more plaque than a manual toothbrush in four weeks.
The Oral-B ProfessionalCare SmartSeries 5000 is one smart toothbrush. Not only does it come with a handy digital SmartGuide, but it’s also a lot of fun. When brushing, it keeps track of the time you devote to cleaning, and the image of a frown changes to a smiley face after two to three minutes (depending on what mode you’re in). The consumer testers at Good Housekeeping said their kids might enjoy making a game out of brushing.
Additionally, The Journal of Contemporary Dental Practice found that “subjects using the power brush with the wireless display brushed with less force than subjects using the power brush alone after 30 days of home use.” The publication came to the conclusion that using this Oral-B model improved brushing technique, including “brushing pressure and thoroughness.”
