Electric toothbrushes make brushing your teeth more fun. The American Dental Association recommends you brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time, so you might as well try to make the most of it. The basic features of an electric toothbrush are pretty standard, but they vary in style, battery life, and functions. Here are a few of the ones we recommend.

Quip Electric Toothbrush

An electric toothbrush for minimalists.Amazon

Quip’s specialty is their sleek design and how user-friendly their brushes are to use. It feels like holding a pen or marker, and it’s hard to tell the AAA battery is even there. You’ll need to change the brush head every three months, which is easy to remember because it’s the same amount of time you’ll need to replace the battery. It’s waterproof, so you’ll be able to shower with it.

The Philips Sonicare Rechargeable toothbrush has a few unique features. In addition to a timer, a common feature amongst electric brushes, this one will let you know when you’re brushing too hard—an important reminder for anyone with sensitive gums or who tends to be too firm. It has a two-week battery life and will also remind you when it’s time to replace your brush head.

The head comes off easily, so if you purchase multiple, you can share the device within the family. Unlike the others, brush head slightly rotates instead of vibrating forward and back. The battery life is one week.
