Why an Electric Toothbrush?
You might balk at the cost of an electric toothbrush when the old-fashioned kind is so inexpensive. But there’s little doubt that an electric toothbrush will do a better job of safeguarding your oral health. They’re better at removing plaque that causes gum disease, and if they have a built-in timer as many do, you won’t quit on brushing before you’re done a thorough job, something that all too many of us are prone to do when using an old-fashioned toothbrush.
But of course not all electric toothbrushes are created equal, and when you choose one (or even an old-fashioned one), you should do so bearing your particular needs in mind. But here are ten great options to consider as you make your search.

Coupled with its signature ultrasound toothpaste gels, this toothbrush uses ultrasound technology to accomplish tooth whitening and antibacterial cleaning. The 60 million air oscillations get rid of bacteria and build-up in just 90 seconds.
Electric Toothbrush #2: Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Toothbrush
The Sonic technology in this electric toothbrush provides up to 31,000 brush strokes per minute. The sweeping motions are great for getting fluid into the tight spaces between teeth as well as along the gum line.

This option provides 35,000 micro-brush strokes per minute and gets rid of up to 100 percent more stains and plaque. The makers guarantee clean, healthy teeth in one week and generally improved oral health in two. This electric toothbrush is light and makes less noise than many others.
