For anyone who's looking to ditch their manual toothbrush, electric toothbrush deals are here to save you some money.

Most of us will have been repeatedly reminded by our dentists about the advantages that electric toothbrushes have over manual toothbrushes. Not only do they tend to feature smaller brush heads that can get to all the nooks and crannies that are often overlooked by their manual counterparts, but the electronic mechanisms mean that they're able to vastly outperform manual toothbrushes when it comes to the number of oscillations per brush—meaning that your teeth can get a more robust scrub that you're able to give them by hand. Most electric toothbrushes will also feature technology that alerts you whether you're exerting too much pressure, as brushing your teeth too hard can lead to a reduction in the protective enamel that coats your teeth.

But much like we have to splash out a bit when upgrading from an ache-inducing hand whisk to one of the best blenders, moving onto an electric toothbrush does involve a degree of investment. However, it seems like over the years electric toothbrush deals have become increasingly easy to come by, with sales on at least a few models most of the year round and mega price drops on even the most expensive electric toothbrushes popping up during special discount seasons. With the most in-demand electric toothbrushes usually selling for a few hundred dollars, the best way to save is wait until those models drop to around half price, which they often do.

The best electric toothbrush deals tend to be on during events like Black Friday, which takes place in November, with some discounts continuing until Christmas and even into the New Year January sales. However, look out for summer sales or special events at common toiletries and cosmetics retailers like Walgreens, CVS and Boots. Large supermarkets like Target and Walmart are also great options for electric toothbrush deals, as well as online retailers like Very, QVC and Best Buy and of course, Amazon. Look out for Amazon Prime Day sales in July and October, as they tend to offer some of the best electric toothbrush deals you're likely to come across.

If there ever was a Tesla of dental care, this is it. The first indicator that this toothbrush is just a little bit special (apart from the gorgeous sleek look and feel) is the sunny 'good morning' welcome that shows up on the interactive screen when you pick it. Clever iO technology monitors your brushing to detect how well you're cleaning each part of your mouth and it relays the information to you using smiley faces on the screen of the toothbrush. If you want to really dig deep into the analysis in order to keep your teeth at their healthiest, you can connect this to the smartphone compatible app which will show in real-time where you're brushing and what kind of pressure you're using. We're not going to lie, it's a little bit addictive watching the virtual teeth turning from blue to white when you've done your best brushing work and it's also helpful to know the parts that need a little bit more cleaning. The dual pressure sensor alerts you whether you're brushing either too hard or too soft and will glow green when you're at the correct pressure. This also features seven smart modes so that you can personalize your brushing and has a snazzy magnetic charger that loads it up to 100% battery in just three hours. And back to the gorgeously sleek look and feel—there are no nooks and crannies to get into and rinse on this one, because it is just one seamless gadget from start to end and the pearly finish gives it an ultra-luxe feel. Even the vibration level of this brush is luxury. Gone is the juddery first-time car sensation we're all used to, this really is one smooth ride that glides across your teeth. While it might be quite the investment, this model does see some of the best electric toothbrush deals around, so it's worth keeping an eye out for when it's on offer.
