Best Electric Toothbrushes of 2024

Best Electric Toothbrushes of 2024img-2278.jpg

The electric toothbrushes in this section weren’t my favorites, but they do have some great qualities worth mentioning. One of these might be the right choice for you so it felt worthwhile to include them here.

Philips Sonicare for Kids Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush

For ages 3 and up, the Philips Sonicare for Kids is just as great as Philips’ other Sonicare models. The electric brush has two different modes and a brush timer and comes in two different colors. Plus, each box contains stickers to decorate the handle. It functions very similarly to the Oral-B Kid’s Electric Toothbrush, though the brush head vibrates instead of oscillating.  

I did notice that the handle is heavier and about an inch longer than that of the Oral-B Kid’s Color Changing toothbrush. The brush head is a smaller version of the Philips Sonicare Prestige but is still almost three times longer than the Oral-B Kid’s brush head. What makes the Sonicare for Kids brush unique is that it has Bluetooth capabilities that connect to a smartphone app. I think the app is one of the best; it has educational videos and a tracking system that parents can use to see their kids’ brushing behavior.

Quip Electric Toothbrush

The Quip brush head is very close to the size of a manual toothbrush head. The Quip is simple in every aspect: It has one speed and a two-minute timer that buzzes every 30 seconds and turns off once the time is up. That’s it. There’s no app, charger or wires. This electric toothbrush is powered by an AAA battery located in the handle and the charge lasts three months.

I gave the Hum by Colgate the “best battery-powered electric toothbrush” title and not the Quip because I didn’t like the brush head of the toothbrush. Yes, it’s similar to a manual toothbrush but I found it hard to use to reach around my mouth. I also noticed that Quip’s motor isn’t very powerful compared with models from Sonicare or Oral-B. To me, it felt just like a manual cleaning. While I didn’t like that, others may not mind. If you’re looking for a smart electric toothbrush without Bluetooth or an app, the Quip may be the one.

CariPro Electric Toothbrush

The CariPro is a good brush, it just didn’t compare to the others on this list. The brush head vibrates and the top and bottom of the brush flare outward. 

My gums and teeth felt sensitive after using the CariPro, but I do tend to experience dental sensitivity. It is hard to say if it was due to the brush bristles or the way the brush head flared out. If you have sensitive gums, note that the brush has five settings and one of which is a sensitive one. There’s some good in this: I feel like the CariPro did a good job of cleaning my mouth. 

Y-Brush

The Y-Brush turned heads and piqued interest at CES in 2017 and came back to CES year after year. The strange, Y-shaped brush claims that it can brush all of your teeth in just 10 seconds. After applying toothpaste directly on the brush, the entire Y-Brush goes into your mouth. You then must bite down and press the button to activate the gentle vibrations. After five seconds, you can move to your lower set of teeth. 

I not only found that the Y-Brush didn’t clean my teeth but the vibrations hurt my head. It was an uncomfortable experience that left my teeth just coated in toothpaste. The concept of this brush is fun and interesting. It might be for you if you are tired of ordinary electric toothbrushes. 

Oral-B Pro 500 Precision Clean

My experience with the Oral-B Pro 500 Precision Clean brush compared with some others in the same price range. It has one cleaning mode and the brush head oscillates and rotates on a two-minute timer. The brush alerts you when you are finished. This simple Oral-B brush is basic and doesn’t have any special technology or paired apps.

Out of all the Oral-B brushes I tested with rotating spin heads, I liked this one the least. It wasn’t as powerful as the others and after a few uses, I found myself wondering if I needed a new brush head. I think this brush is perfect for someone testing out an electric toothbrush for the first time. It is simple and very reasonably priced. I would personally choose the Oral-B Pro 1000, but this Pro 500 is a good budget option.
