Healthy teeth are a big part of a happy life. Look no further than popular vlogger Casey Neistat to see why eating too much candy is a bad idea (he’s had plenty of painful visits to the dentist which have been catalogued on his YouTube channel and has publicly vowed, and failed, to quit eating too much sugar multiple times). Healthy teeth and gums are something many people either take for granted or wish they could get back. So where and how does technology come into play? In the form of the electric toothbrush.
While there are 2 major brands that everyone knows and that most stores stock, they aren’t the only options when it comes to the best electric toothbrushes. And even within those 2 brands, there are several different products with unique features and prices. Choosing the best electric toothbrush can be kind of tough and time consuming. Well, until now, that is.
In this post I’ve narrowed things down to my top 3 choices for you. No, I’m not a dentist, but I am a tech-enthusiast who has done all the research you would probably normally do for you (but seriously, ask your dentist before just going with my non-expert opinions).
To me, a smart electric toothbrush is one that doesn’t just have batteries (although studies have shown that electric toothbrushes do much better at cleaning teeth and manual brushing — just do some Googling to see for yourself). It needs to do more: it needs to give you tips and point out what you are doing right and wrong. It needs to guide you with a timer to ensure you are brushing long enough. It needs, in short, some smarter features.
Both myself and my wife have used electric toothbrushes for the past couple of years (at the behest of our dentist) and have been pretty happy with the results. Recently, however, mine gave me reason to believe it was time to move on (and for a tech guy, move on is a good excuse to upgrade). So, as usual, this article is the result of a real-life need to find the best possible tech product in a given category; and today that category is electric toothbrushes.
Let me know what the best electric toothbrush is in your opinion down in the comments!
