What research says

Electric toothbrushes have increased in popularity and effectivness since they were introduced. Here we look at 3 models in price ranges from $50 to $75.

There are of course some common features that you would expect, such as 2-minute brushing timers, no-slip grips, replaceable heads, and cordless rechargeable technology. Now the differences begin. As you can imagine the feature list goes up along with the price tag. We can start with the powerhouse; Braun's Oral-B 7400 series. The Braun Oral-B PC 7400 Power Toothbrush stands out as it goes 3-d by both pulsating and oscillating. Also in the powerhouse category is the Water Pik Sensonic Professional Toothbrush, which brings in a 30-second quadrant timer to let you know how long you've spent brushing a given area. Both the Water Pik and The Braun Oral-B have recharge light indicators to let you know the power status of the brush, and both of these units feature two speed adjustments. One speed for sensitive areas and a higher speed for plaque removal. Both of these units come with two interchangeable heads but the Water Pik Sensonic also includes an interdental brush head.

The Phillips Sonicare Advance 4100 Electric Toothbrush is not to be ignored, extensive studies have shown that this unit removes more than 80% of coffee, tea and tobacco stains. Most importantly this unit has a really solid construction, a long battery life and is very easy to use.

Considerations are based partly in price. The units here are more effective than the majority of battery operated toothbrushes out there and the replacement heads are widely available in most drugstores, grocery stores, department stores and more. There is a range of $25 between the bottom and top of these brushes which is all about features. All of these products are good and have excellent features so check the price tag and make your choice based on features.
