There’s no doubt that brushing with an electric rather than a manual toothbrush is more effective at maintaining healthy teeth and gums; it’s what professionals have been advising clients for decades. As the market for electric toothbrushes has now become so advanced, there are a range of devices available to buy that often creep to prices in excess of £200. However, it is widely stressed that a mid-range toothbrush will suffice and this Oral-B version by Philips is no doubt a solid choice.
This could well be the best electric toothbrush for helping to maintain oral health and keep teeth looking white and clean. It comes packed with a range of useful features for top hygiene, including 3D cleaning (pulsating, oscillating and rotating movements), which claims to remove double the amount of plaque as other market leading brushes. It also pulsates at around 40,000 times per minute, as well as rotating 8,000 times per minute, which gives the feel of a powerful clean.

Philips claims this brush gives naturally whiter teeth in 21 days. In order to achieve a whiter shade with this brush, however, it’s important to brush in the correct way.
- Ensure you spend equal amounts of time on each individual tooth, rather than blanket brushing the teeth; around 10 seconds per tooth is recommended.
- Make sure you brush the gum around each tooth to avoid yellow plaque build up in the corners.
- Don’t press too hard; the right amount of pressure enables you to polish the tooth effectively, brushing away build-up that can cause staining. This brush contains a handy visible pressure sensor that lights up when you press too hard on the tooth. To prevent you from over-brushing, there’s also a quad timer that tells you how long you’ve brushed for.
