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.
Best electric toothbrush deals
1. Oral-B iO Series 9
Best overall electric toothbrush
Reasons to buy
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.
2. Spotlight Sonic toothbrush
Best electric toothbrush for your vanity
Reasons to buy
Spotlight's famous Sonic toothbrush is like the cool younger sister of the Oral-B electric toothbrushes that will look beautiful on your vanity. It features a sleek matte design and playful logo—but it's not just the aesthetics where it makes a mark. With three speed settings, including one that buffs away stains for a whiter finish, you can adjust it to whatever you and your teeth need. And if the family tends to get their toothbrushes mixed up then you can even get this personalized with a name on the side—how cute!
3. Philips ProtectiveClean 4100
Best electric toothbrush on a budget
Reasons to buy
Even when you snap up the best electric toothbrush deals, these gadgets can still set you back a fair bit, so this Philips model is a great way to get the benefits of electric on a budget. Considering the massive price difference between this model and the more high-end ones on our list, it's understandable that it doesn't boast the same smart technology or multi-mode capabilities—but it's still a good-performing electric toothbrush. You'll still get the benefit of a handy timer and all-important pressure sensor, and with just one brushing mode, there's less to think about during your bleary-eyed morning bathroom jaunt.
4. Foreo ISSA 2
Best electric toothbrush for a manual feel
Reasons to buy
If you're someone who prefers the feel of a manual brush buts wants all the benefits of an electric then this is the one for you. With an ergonomically-designed handle that you would hold like a manual toothbrush, this model has all the comfort you're used to without the usual heavy, bulky handle you would find on an electric model. It cleverly pulsates under the radar while you brush away, however, be aware that you will have to put the same arm power into this as you would with a manual toothbrush. That said, this is a fantastic option to take on the go to keep your teeth squeaky clean—and it comes with a super impressive 365-day battery life!
5. Oral-B Genius X
Best electric toothbrush to buy on sale
Reasons to buy
Being another Oral-B great, this toothbrush is well worth your money. And while it doesn't have as many bells and whistles as the iO9, what stands about it is that it's often on offer at a number of retailers, including Amazon, usually retailing for just a fraction of its original cost. So if you're looking for the very best of electric toothbrush deals, then you're likely to find it on this model. Just like the Oral-B iO9, you can track your brushing in the brand's app to see exactly where you are and are not cleaning properly. The AI isn't as intuitive as the iO9, but then you are saving some money with this model—and this does also come under some of the cheapest electric toothbrush deals when it's on offer so definitely worth looking out for. The lithium-ion battery gives you two weeks battery power and the pressure sensor will let you know when you're brushing too hard.
6. Philips DiamondClean 9500
Best Philips electric toothbrush
Reasons to buy
Clever technology and smart brush heads automatically decide the best mode to use when brushing depending on what type of brush head you're using in both of these models. It also connects to a phone app that will give you real-time advice on whether you need to apply less pressure, change your movements or work on different areas of your mouth—and this toothbrush even alerts you when it's time to change brush head! It doesn't have as many brush modes as other models on our list but it's still a super product.
Note: 9500 is not available in the UK
