10 Best Electric Toothbrushes of 2024 [Tested and Reviewed]

Toothbrushes have come a long way from the disposable ones you get when you go in for a dental checkup. Today, electronic toothbrushes made by brands like Oral-B and Sonicare reach the crevices of your mouth faster and more effectively than manual toothbrushes. Some even feature round heads and bristles made from silicone. With so many electric toothbrushes on the market, though, it can be a challenge to figure out which models are both easy to use and get rid of plaque.

So we rounded up the latest and best-selling electric toothbrushes from top manufacturers and compared them on five quality measures. In this review, we’ll break down how 10 popular electric toothbrushes performed.


Our benchmark? The best electric toothbrush is one that effectively removes plaque, is user-friendly, and makes daily brushing comfortable. We ranked the toothbrushes and highlighted the pros and cons of each model so you can find the best option for you.

The Benefits of an Electric Toothbrush

More Efficient Than Brushing Manually

More Efficient Than Brushing Manually

Electric toothbrushes are known for providing fast and effective cleaning. To see this for ourselves, we tested toothbrushes using model teeth coated in artificial plaque. While taking care not to break any bristles, we observed that it was much easier to clean teeth and remove plaque with the electronic models. Their vibrating action helped dislodge more of the sticky film of bacteria than manual brushing.

Key Differences Between Electric Toothbrushes

For Starters, Pay Attention to the Shape of the Brush

For Starters, Pay Attention to the Shape of the Brush

Electric toothbrushes can provide effective cleaning, but when we drilled down, our testing revealed notable differences in the amount of plaque removed between the top- and bottom-ranked products. For instance, the superior products cleaned both the crowns of the teeth and the molars. The lower-tier toothbrushes, however, only provided surface-level cleaning.


Likewise, electric toothbrushes boast different features, including rotational and ultrasonic drive systems and a range of speeds. Our review showed that the shape of the head made the most difference in performance quality. Below, we break down the features to look out for so you can find the best electric toothbrush for your needs.

Flossing before brushing your teeth is the most effective way to ensure you properly clean the spaces between your teeth.

How to Choose Electric Toothbrushes

Here are the points to keep in mind when choosing the best Electric Toothbrushes.

1

Choose a Curved Brush and Thick Bristles

Get Better Reach and Maximum Scrubbing Power

Get Better Reach and Maximum Scrubbing Power

We tested the electric toothbrushes using a dental model that was coated with artificial plaque. Each session lasted for two minutes to gauge how easily and effectively each toothbrush removed the plaque. 


Across the board, the curved toothbrushes with thick bristles got rid of more plaque than the other models. The curved shape reached the contours of the mouth, and the bristles got in between the teeth and covered each tooth from crown to gum. So for comprehensive cleaning, make sure your selection has a curved head and dense bristles.

Avoid Silicone Toothbrushes That Don’t Thoroughly Remove Plaque

Avoid Silicone Toothbrushes That Don’t Thoroughly Remove Plaque

Should you opt for a silicone toothbrush? Our testers found that the large heads of the silicone models didn’t effectively remove plaque because of their size and inflexibility. In fact, they observed that plaque residue remained in the grooves and on the molars after brushing, even though the smooth, flat surfaces appeared to be somewhat clean. The testers noted that: "The head is big, and there is a feeling of pressure in the mouth" and "It was difficult to maneuver around the back teeth.” We recommend you avoid large silicone toothbrushes since they’re hard to use and they don’t do a good job of removing plaque.

2

Choose a Toothbrush With a Small Head that Fits in Small Spaces

Electric toothbrushes with small heads, meanwhile, help you reach every corner of your mouth for a thorough cleaning without straining the sides of your mouth and jaw. Look for a design that allows you to brush all the surfaces of your teeth and gums for effective plaque removal and overall oral hygiene.

Brush Your Molars With a Thin Head

Brush Your Molars With a Thin Head

An electric toothbrush with a thin head is easier to maneuver and gets into the hard-to-reach areas in your mouth. A thin head also allows precise cleaning around individual teeth and along the gum line. If you’re looking for control and the ability to reach tight spaces, we recommend a toothbrush with a thin head for your oral care.


Our testers appreciated the slim design as well. They provided positive feedback, such as: “The thinness of the head resulted in less pressure on the mouth" and "It could easily reach up to and behind the back teeth."

Ayuka Yokoyama
Head of Personal Care Products at mybestAyuka Yokoyama

Most of the models with a circular brush head were rather thick. If you’re used to using an electric toothbrush, these thicker brush heads may not pose a problem for you. However, if you aren’t, check our rankings for thinner brush heads to make your brushing experience comfortable.

Select a Toothbrush with a Sensitive Mode to Reduce Discomfort

Select a Toothbrush with a Sensitive Mode to Reduce Discomfort

One feature that takes some getting used to for people who are accustomed to manual toothbrushes is the vibration of electric toothbrushes. In fact, the vibration might bother people who have sensitive teeth and experience gum irritation. During testing, however, we concluded that electric toothbrushes that feature a Sensitive mode decreased the level of discomfort.


When an electric toothbrush is in Sensitive mode, the vibration is gentle, unlike the more intense modes also offered by some electric toothbrushes. The Sensitive mode reduced discomfort for individuals who feel pain when brushing, an attractive feature. The testers said that: "When the mode can't be changed, and the vibration hurts, I just want to stop using it."


So if your teeth and gums are sensitive, opt for electric toothbrushes with modes that allow you to adjust the level of the vibration for your comfort.

Ayuka Yokoyama
Head of Personal Care Products at mybestAyuka Yokoyama

The Sensitive mode may be called something else, depending on the product. However, starting with this gentler mode can help you work your way up to more powerful modes.

3

Look for a Model That Is Easy to Use Every Day

Go With a Handle Width of 1.3 Inches or Less

Go With a Handle Width of 1.3 Inches or Less

Electric toothbrushes are generally wider than manual toothbrushes, which allows for a more stable grip. During our testing, we discovered that a handle that’s 1.3 inches wide or less is easier to use than wider models. Electric toothbrushes that are more than 1.4 inches wide can be hard to wrap your hand around, though, making it challenging to brush thoroughly. Testers noted of the wider models that: "It was too thick to grip firmly" and "It was unstable because it was hard to hold.” So choose an electric toothbrush that fits well in your hand and has a handle that’s less than 1.3 inches wide.

Select a Toothbrush With a Display Screen or a Visual Indicator

Select a Toothbrush With a Display Screen or a Visual Indicator

You’ll have an easier time changing modes if your electric toothbrush features a digital screen or other visual display. Illuminated text is more visible in dimly lit areas, which makes the device easier to use. We recommend you choose an electric toothbrush with a display screen. That way, it’s a cinch to change the mode for pain-free brushing.

Choose a Toothbrush With Buttons That Click

Choose a Toothbrush With Buttons That Click

Buttons play an important role in operating an electric toothbrush. Since you’ll need to turn the brush around when you put it in your mouth, you won’t be able to see the button. So opt for an electric toothbrush with a button you can easily operate and that clicks when you use it.


The clicking lets you know that you’ve changed modes without needing to see the button itself. We found that when toothbrushes didn’t have this functionality, it was hard to know if you had successfully changed modes. We included this feature in our ranking so you can make sure the toothbrush you're considering comes with a button that clicks.

4

Choose a Brush in the 70dB Range

They Remove Plaque and Are Easy to Use Without the Loud Noise

They Remove Plaque and Are Easy to Use Without the Loud Noise

While there are many advantages to using an electric toothbrush, its vibration and sound level can cause users to experience headaches. That’s why we suggest you choose an electric toothbrush that emits 70 decibels (dB) of noise or less.


Anything over 80dB will cause vibrational effects that can last beyond your brushing session. That said, toothbrushes that operate at 60dB or less aren’t as effective at removing plaque since the vibration level is part of what gives the device its cleaning power. We recommend choosing a toothbrush with a balanced sound level in the 70dB range.

5

Look for Smartphone Connectivity

Tracking Your Dental Habits On an App Can Help You Improve Your Brushing Technique.

Tracking Your Dental Habits On an App Can Help You Improve Your Brushing Technique.

Some brands of electric toothbrushes work with apps that allow you to keep tabs on your dental hygiene and brushing technique. For example, when you connect with an app, it may help you keep track of the following:


  • Pressure: Make sure you’re applying enough pressure for thorough cleaning

  • Coverage area: Keeps you from missing any spots

  • Brushing time: Ensures that you brush long enough for a comprehensive cleaning

  • Gum protection: Records any bleeding from the gums


By linking to an app that can track this information, you’ll get more insight into your daily habits and how you can more thoroughly clean your mouth and safeguard your dental health.

mybest's Top Choice: Comfortable to Use and Removes Plaque

What we loved

  • Two buttons that click make this toothbrush user-friendly
  • State-of-the-art tech helps track dental hygiene habits and brushing technique

What we didn't love

  • The width of the head might make it harder to use
  • The app might not be helpful for users who are not comfortable with the tech

Procter & Gamble's Oral-B iO Series 9 Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush features seven modes and an AI position-detection feature to help you improve your brushing technique. Plus, you can link your toothbrush to an app that allows you to track your dental habits.


When we tested Procter & Gamble’s Oral-B iO Series 9 Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush for plaque removal, we were able to reach both our front and back teeth for a thorough cleaning. Its curved head and thick bristles covered each tooth. In addition, we could barely feel the vibration, and the noise level was minimal. The handle also provided a firm grip and stability while brushing.


This toothbrush features two buttons: one for power and the other for changing modes. The seven smart modes included Super Sensitive, Whiten, Intense, and Daily Clean. The buttons click to let you know you’ve changed modes—another benefit when you’re in the midst of brushing. You can also keep tabs on your progress with the digital screen, which displays which mode you’re in and how long you’ve been brushing. Plus, the app allows you to track your dental hygiene over time.


That said, the width of the brush made it challenging for some testers to clean behind their teeth and reach their molars. To make sure they were removing plaque build-up between their teeth, they still had to floss and use interdental brushes.


This electric toothbrush received extremely high satisfaction ratings. Users commented on how brushing with it "leaves you feeling refreshed" and "makes your teeth feel clean" after each use.

This product not only effectively removes plaque, but it’s also easy to hold and operate for most users. Our verdict? We rank it as the best electric toothbrush and highly recommend it for those who are dissatisfied with their current electric toothbrush.

Has a Thin, Maneuverable Head and Is Easy to Handle

What we loved

  • The curved stem helps users reach the whole mouth
  • User- friendly

What we didn't love

  • It’s noisy
  • The bristles aren’t as thick

The Sonicare DiamondClean Smart 9300 Sonic Electric Toothbrush HX9903/01 from Philips is equipped with four modes that allow you to adjust intensity levels in three stages.


This electric toothbrush from Sonicare effectively cleaned the front, back, and crowns of the teeth during our testing. The slight curve just below the head easily navigates the mouth, and the thin head reaches the back teeth. Additionally, the wide handle makes it easy to grip, and the device’s light weight allows you to brush your teeth for two minutes without your hand getting tired. 


This toothbrush is designed with two functional buttons. The power button features an indentation that clicks to let users know when the device is in operation. That said, it’s not easy to reach plaque stuck behind the teeth and in the grooves of the molars with this device. And it emits high-pitched sounds during use.


The bristles were not as thick, and simply applying the toothbrush to the teeth did not completely remove plaque. So you need to adjust the angle of the brush and focus on brushing the back of your teeth and grooves of the molars. However, this toothbrush’s slim head and easy-to-hold grip make this product suitable for people new to using electric toothbrushes.

Brush Head Is Slim and Fits in Tight Spots

What we loved

  • The lightweight body makes this toothbrush easy to use
  • The one-button operation also contributes to its ease of use

What we didn't love

  • The handle gets slippery when wet
  • The intensity comes as a bit of a shock if you start at a higher level

The VarioSonic Electric Toothbrush by Benco DentalPRO-SYS features five speed levels, each with its own brush. For this test, we used the “Normal Soft Brush.”


This toothbrush’s curved head came in handy when we tested how well it removed plaque. We were able to remove the sticky film of bacteria from the front and back teeth. The thick bristles also provided ample coverage over each tooth. This toothbrush is also easy to maneuver, which makes it ideal for beginners who are switching to an electric toothbrush. Additionally, the lightweight, easy-to-grip handle makes it easy to brush for two minutes. You can start with a gentle level of vibration that won’t irritate gums. And the one-button operation makes this option user-friendly.


That said, this toothbrush has a few drawbacks. The handle is made from slick material so that it can get slippery. This device also emits a slightly high-pitched sound, which makes it one of the noisier options. The bristles may leave some plaque behind in the grooves and crowns between teeth, so you’ll still want to make sure you floss.


This toothbrush’s advantage? Its slim head is easy to move around your mouth and reach every corner. But because the vibrations can be strong, you might start at level 1 and then increase the intensity as you get used to this device.

Despite a Loud Vibration, The Device Removes Plaque

What we loved

  • Thick bristles effectively remove plaque
  • The head’s shape encircles most of the tooth

What we didn't love

  • Large handle
  • Noisy

The R2 Rotating Toothbrush by Bitvae comes equipped with five modes and includes eight replacement heads, so it saves you the hassle of buying replacement brushes. The product specs claim that a full charge will keep the battery running for over 30 days.


We were able to thoroughly clean the surface of our teeth while testing the R2 Rotating Toothbrush’s plaque-removal ability. The curved shape and high-density bristles provided adequate coverage of each tooth. Its round head also allowed for easy maneuvering. Although this toothbrush is a bit heavier than some other models, it’s light enough that it’s still user-friendly. The handle features two buttons—one for power, one for mode change—with a light that confirms you’ve switched modes. Similar to other models, we advise you to floss and pay extra attention to the crowns in order to completely remove plaque.


The drawbacks? Because of the width of the head, we felt a little pressure when brushing our molars. This toothbrush is also loud and has a thick, elliptically-shaped handle that’s hard to grip. Its curved shape and thick bristles help you effectively clean your teeth, but the handle is better suited to people with large hands.

The Philips Sonicare 4100 Sonicare 4100 Series Sonic Electric Toothbrush has a pressure prevention sensor that keeps you from pressing the brush too hard against your gums. This toothbrush also features two levels of intensity.


If you’re looking for a simple option, this could be the toothbrush for you. With its thin head and minimal pressure, this device feels comfortable in the mouth. We could reach behind the teeth and molars without experiencing any irritation from the vibration. A two-minute brushing session was no problem since this brush is lightweight and a cinch to operate with its one-button control.


Unfortunately, this toothbrush didn’t do such a great job at removing plaque. Its thin bristles slipped off the teeth and didn’t reach all around the teeth. This model doesn’t have a light that shows when you change modes, and it’s also relatively noisy.


This product is great for beginners to electronic toothbrushes because of its thin head that resembles a regular toothbrush and slender handle. Unfortunately, this toothbrush doesn’t provide as comprehensive cleaning as other models. Some plaque may remain, which might require you to spend more time cleaning your teeth.

Difficult to Brush Molars, but Simple Operation

What we loved

  • Thick bristles
  • Lightweight and curved

What we didn't love

  • Uncomfortable vibration and noise level
  • Hard to use in tight spots

Procter & Gamble's Oral-B Clinical Battery Powered Toothbrush is a battery-operated product that’s more affordable than its rechargeable counterparts.


This device’s curved shape and high-density brush helped us target plaque. The small, round brush also cleaned the molars and the back of the teeth effectively. Additionally, this device is easy to control and doesn’t irritate the gums. The handle is thicker than others, but it’s got a non-slip grip that will keep it from sliding around in your hand. This battery-powered device is heavier than other toothbrushes, but it’s still lightweight enough for easy use. And its one button makes it simple to operate.


The downsides? You’ll need to still use an interdental brush and floss to ensure complete plaque removal. The device’s thick head also may not fit into all the crevices in the back of your mouth. Also, this toothbrush’s motor is quite noisy, and the button doesn’t click when you press it, which can make it hard to tell if it’s been activated.


Although the high-density, curved-shaped brush easily removes plaque, its rough vibration can potentially make it difficult for beginners to use. Therefore, you might want to consider it as a portable substitute rather than for everyday use.

Loud but Lightweight and Easy to Grip

What we loved

  • The handle won’t slip
  • It comes with replacement heads

What we didn't love

  • The noise is too loud
  • The bristles don’t provide adequate coverage around the tooth

The Black Series Sonic Whitening Toothbrush from AquaSonic features four modesThe package comes with eight replacement brushes, so you should be set for about two years.


This toothbrush gets points for its thin head, which makes it easy to move around your mouth, and its level of vibration, which is gentle on the mouth. It’s also lightweight, and the handle is user-friendly. Testers noted that: "The matte finish makes it less slippery" and "The thickness is just right, and it’s easy to grip.” Another advantage? This toothbrush is designed with two buttons and indicators that light up to show whether the device is on and what mode you’re in.


One drawback is that because this model has thinner bristles, you have to apply more pressure to dislodge plaque. And despite its curved shape, this brush doesn’t reach the back teeth. Testers also had negative experiences with this product, noting that: "When it touches my teeth, the sound resonates in my head and is uncomfortable." They also pointed out that the buttons don’t click and that the power turned off when the button was accidentally touched during use.


Although the handle is easy to hold and the thin head helps this brush reach and clean corners of the mouth, a downside is that the bristles don’t adequately grip the tooth, making it difficult to remove plaque.

Despite Large Buttons, the Brush Tends to Float Away From Teeth

What we loved

  • The low price tag
  • Large buttons that click when activated

What we didn't love

  • No friction or grip between the bristles and the teeth
  • Doesn’t completely clean teeth

The ProSpin Ultra Whitening from AquaSonic features three modesSince it comes with six replacement brushes, it will save you the hassle of having to buy more for a while.


Even with its round brush, this device is easy to maneuver in your mouth. Test participants said they barely felt any pressure or gum irritation from the vibration. They also noted that: "The moderate thickness makes it easy to grip, and its lightweight design goes easy on the arm. You can brush thoroughly for a full two minutes without any trouble."


Other beneficial features? The large buttons click when you press them. This functionality makes the toothbrush user-friendly, along with icons on the buttons that display the selected modes in bright letters.


The downside is that this toothbrush slips off the teeth since its stem is straight instead of curved. The head also has low-density bristles, which makes it hard to clean in the grooves of the molars and in between the teeth. Another drawback? The thickness of the toothbrush made it challenging to reach the molars in the back of your mouth.


When it came to the vibration, test participants indicated that: “There was no discomfort, but the motor sound was rather loud.”


This product is quite user-friendly. However, its overall design and thin bristles don’t allow for a thorough cleaning that results in teeth feeling polished.

Quiet but Barely Removes Plaque

What we loved

  • Compact enough to use while traveling
  • Two separate buttons for turning it on and off and for adjusting levels

What we didn't love

  • The bristles are too short and thin
  • Doesn’t provide enough reach to clean the back teeth

The ISSA 3 from Foreo features a silicone brush. While operating this toothbrush, you can choose from 16 levels of intensity.


This toothbrush is quiet with minimal vibration, which makes two minutes of brushing a breeze. Small and lightweight, this device was also easy to operate, with a power button and mode button that allows you to switch between intensities. 


That said, the brush itself falls short, as it’s extremely thin and has short bristles that don’t adequately clean teeth and remove plaque. Participants also mentioned that: "The head was too large, and it was difficult to reach the back teeth."


Another disadvantage? The buttons don’t click to confirm when you change modes. It was also difficult to detect the difference in the intensity level from one mode to the next. If you’re looking for thorough plaque removal, this product might not be the best option.

Easy to Hold but Bad at Removing Plaque

What we loved

  • Features lights that show mode changes
  • The app helps you to track your dental habits

What we didn't love

  • It doesn’t deep clean your teeth
  • The bristles are too short and thin

The Colgate Smart Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush from Colgate-Palmolive comes equipped with three modes. Plus, you can link this product to your smartphone.


This toothbrush features a slim head that’s easy to move around your mouth without putting pressure on your gums. We also found this device to be easy to grip, with a handle that’s an ideal width. Plus, it's lightweight, so it won’t strain your arm when you’re brushing for two minutes. When you change modes, the lights change from blue to purple to green, so you can easily see which mode you’re in.


On the other hand, the stem of the toothbrush isn’t curved, and the brush itself is on the thin side, so it doesn’t adequately clean between teeth or in crevices. Moreover, the test participants stated that "The bristles were thin, and it hurt the gums." They didn’t like the loud noise from the motor either, which was especially noticeable when using the device’s Deep Clean mode. And while this brush is easy to operate with just one button, it doesn’t click to confirm that you’ve pressed it.


This product isn’t a good option for people considering buying an electric toothbrush because it hardly removes dental plaque.
