4 electric toothbrushes with very good reviews

Electric toothbrushes are more effective and thorough than a manual toothbrush. But which model is the right one? And what should be considered when buying?

First of all, there are two different techniques: rotating electric toothbrushes or sonic toothbrushes. Depending on the type, different cleaning techniques must be used. The sonic toothbrush has to be moved, the so-called sideways movement. For an electric toothbrush with a round head, it is sufficient to hold it against your teeth. But here you have to pay more attention to really work on each tooth individually and to brush a little more thoroughly. And, the gaps still have to be cleaned with dental floss, since the most expensive brush is of no use. We looked at different models and compared them. Here are our recommendations:

The basic model: PRO 1 200 from Oral-B

The PRO 1 200 from Oral-B with a rotating cleaning head has already convinced Stiftung Warentest as the best electric toothbrush for less than 100 euros. In fact, it is unbeatably cheap at under 30 euros and can offer a surprising amount.

Three cleaning modes are available: Daily Cleaning, Sensitive and Lightening. In addition, the timer reveals when sufficient cleaning has been carried out (two minutes) and notifies you to change the cleaning area after 30 seconds. The pressure control is not conveyed by a light signal, as with other manufacturers, but by a changed running noise. That could be a little clearer. There are deductions for the battery. The manufacturer promises 10 days, but in practice the toothbrush weakens. The battery will noticeably drain after a few months.

Positive:

  • price
  • three cleaning modes
  • Timer function
  • Many different attachments available (Sensitive, 3DWhite or deep cleaning)

Negative:

  • Battery weak
  • a bit loud

The sustainable one: happybrush

Known from the television show “Höhle der Löwen”, the HappyBrush sonic toothbrush aims to impress with its good price-performance ratio and sustainability. HappyBrush advertises with transparent production, social commitment and essays made from 40 percent renewable raw materials. In addition, an environmentally friendly packaging and a vegan toothpaste is also included. This electric toothbrush also has a timer and three cleaning modes: normal, sensitive and polishing. The HappyBrush also scores with up to six weeks of battery life and 40,000 vibrations per minute. This toothbrush does not report whether the pressure is correct during brushing, which is a clear drawback. There is actually only one brush attachment, if you include the activated carbon brushes, two.

Positive:

  • long battery life
  • three cleaning modes
  • Timer function
  • sustainable

Negative:

  • no pressure control
  • no specific attachments available

The deluxe version: Sonicare DiamondClean from Philips

The sonic toothbrush Sonicare DiamondClean from Philips is by far the most expensive electric toothbrush in the test. However, it was convincing at Stiftung Warentest last year. With 62,000 brush head movements per minute, it is particularly effective and thus achieves excellent cleaning results. It also has four cleaning programs: Clean, White +, Gum Health (gum health) and Deep Clean + (deep cleaning). The battery life is up to two weeks, which puts it in the middle of the field. The toothbrush is charged in a stylish glass. However, this device is quite unwieldy and heavy when traveling. A charging travel case can be purchased for this.

A special feature is the associated app. This provides precise instructions while cleaning and prompts, for example, to clean up forgotten areas afterwards. You can also have your teeth cleaning statistics displayed and then send them to the dentist. However, if the toothbrush is used by different family members with different brush heads, the app cannot separate them. They all end up in the same statistic. It is noticeable how many rights the app requires on the smartphone and also requires personal data to be entered.

Positive:

  • four cleaning modes
  • Timer function
  • Pressure control
  • various brush attachments available
  • Personal Coach App

Negative:

  • very expensive
  • The app siphons off an unnecessarily large amount of data

Also interesting: Many electrical devices are given a lower energy class

The travel companion: Pulsonic Slim 1000 from Oral-B

The Pulsonic Slim 1000 from Oral-B is the lightest and smallest model and therefore most similar to the manual toothbrush. Since the price is less than 40 euros, this toothbrush is ideal as a second model for traveling. With 31,000 vibrations per minute, it is likely to be a little less effective than the other two sonic toothbrushes presented here. There are also only two cleaning modes: daily cleaning and sensitive. The battery lasts about two weeks, like most electric toothbrushes. The small selection of brush attachments is also negative here.

Positive:

  • price
  • Timer function
  • slim and light design

Negative:

  • two cleaning modes
  • a brush attachment available
