Buy Braun Electric Toothbrush [CRACKED]
Powered toothbrushes have been shown to remove more plaque and do more to reduce gingivitis than manual toothbrushes, though that reduction may come only from having a brush that encourages the habit of brushing for two full minutes per session.2 If you find yourself struggling to brush for a full two minutes, if you tend to brush unevenly, or if manual brushing feels like too much labor3, upgrading from a manual toothbrush to an electric one that automates these elements may make sense.

Electric toothbrushes are more expensive than manual ones, and not just at the outset. Powered brushes typically cost more than 10 times as much as manual toothbrushes, and you have to replace the brush heads at the same frequency (every three months), each for about the same cost as a manual brush. What you get for the higher cost is less friction in achieving good brushing habits.
For this guide, we focused on electric toothbrushes with rechargeable batteries. Those with replaceable batteries tend to have less-powerful motors and produce more battery waste over their usable lives.
In September 2017, Oral-B became the first brand of electric toothbrush to receive the ADA seal, with five series of the Oscillating-Rotating-Pulsating Power Toothbrush earning this distinction. Our pick was included in the first group of electric toothbrushes to receive the ADA Seal of Acceptance, in September 2017 (two years after we first recommended the model). The ADA has since given the seal to other manufacturers, including Philips Sonicare.
The brush heads compatible with all Philips Sonicare brushes, including the 4100, each come with a tiny plastic hood you can pop off and on to help guard against the coliform sprays flying around the bathroom if you store your toothbrush in open air. Our top pick brush from Oral-B does not include brush caps. (These are, of course, additional pieces of hard-to-recycle plastic.)
The funny thing about electric toothbrushes is how similar a $70 model is to a $200 one. Beyond an automated two-minute timer, there are precious few necessary value-adds to an expensive rechargeable electric toothbrush, but a lot of unnecessary ones: a travel case, a UV sanitizer (which is of negligible use), maybe a couple of extra heads, a slightly sleeker body, a longer-lasting battery, or maybe the ability to sync to an app. As for sonic cleaning and different cleaning modes, experts tell us they are not necessary.
Around $150 puts you in the realm of Bluetooth brushes (and, generally, a dip in battery life). Also known as smart or connected toothbrushes, these brushes pair to companion apps and typically come with several brush heads, in addition to a charging travel case, and even more cleaning modes.
If you want a vibrating manual brush, or have found the brushing motions of higher-powered brushes from the likes of Oral-B and Philips Sonicare too intense, you will likely be happy with a Quip. Over years of testing this brush, some of our adult and kid testers have found that while it requires manual brushing, the gentler, quieter Quip provides a preferable experience. (In fact, we like the Quip Kids model as an electric toothbrush for children because of its gentler vibrations.)
Smart-toothbrush capabilities vary widely, but mainly these devices automate the process of tracking your brushing habits, typically by connecting to an app via Bluetooth. Some smart models, like the Quip Smart and Oral-B iO, attempt to track where the brush head is in your mouth, with varying specificity and results.
Toothbrushes and toothbrush heads that are no longer usable for toothbrushing make excellent cleaning tools. In addition to using old toothbrush heads for cleaning the crevices of your electric toothbrush handle, you might also find them handy for scrubbing grout, shower heads, hair brushes, almost any type of shoe, the hard-to-reach components of radiators, stubborn spots on area rugs and car seats, the dishwasher filter, dusty camera lens caps, bird feeders, and many varieties of mesh baskets or metal gears.
The Philips Sonicare 3 Series feels similar to and works much the same way as the 4100, with a glossy plastic handle and minimal gripping ridges. Now that our runner-up comes with a quadrant timer, this toothbrush has no features that we think are worth spending extra on. (It offers three total levels of intensity.) Overall, though, the brushing experience is roughly the same as with our runner-up pick.
Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart series includes several toothbrushes that connect via Bluetooth to an app, including the 9500. It is sleek, with a matte plastic finish, and it has some real luxury features, like an inductive charging glass and travel case, but its price is a lot to spend for those items. The DiamondClean Smart 9500 has five cleaning modes (four too many) that you must manually cycle through if you need to turn the brush off before reaching two minutes. It also has some of the most expensive brush heads, at around $11 apiece.

Our best electric toothbrush is as gentle as a manual one, with the deep clean effect of a hygienist session. Its rapid sonic vibrations push toothpaste and air to hard to reach areas, successfully removing plaque, reducing staining and freshening breath.
This toothbrush claims to help prevent cavities and improve gum health. It offers three cleaning modes, with a separate purpose-built brush head for each one. It automatically detects which brush head you're using and selects the right setting.
The bristles felt soft for all, while many said it was easy to reach all areas of the mouth. The panel praised its high-quality design, with one tester saying that it was gentler than their previous electric toothbrush. Although the brand is based in the US, they do ship internationally to the UK.
This Ordo toothbrush is available either as part of a subscription or on its own. Our testers liked its four different brushing modes that offer a customisable clean and appreciated its impressive three weeks of battery life. They found it easy to control and gentle, yet effective.
Coffee addicts keen to make discoloured teeth sparkle again should give this whitening set a go. The sonic toothbrush vibrates quickly to tackle surface stains, while the included toothpaste and whitening gels target and neutralise yellowing.
A standout for its unique look, this toothbrush is made from medical-grade silicone, which is not only super easy to clean but bacteria resistant too. It impressed everyone with its long-lasting battery life and proved to be straightforward to use.
We are often contacted by customers whose Electric Toothbrush has stopped charging. A charging problem is quite common and can sometimes be mis-diagnosed as a faulty charger/faulty battery when the opposite is true. This can lead to frustration and people buying a whole new toothbrush when replacing a part is a cheaper alternative.
Below we run through how to tell if you have a faulty battery, a faulty charger or other problem with your electric toothbrush. This applies equally to Braun Oral-B, Philips Sonicare and Colgate Omron rechargeable toothbrushes.
If no lights come on when you put the brush on to charge, even after an hour on charge, has the charger and/or bottom of the toothbrush been getting slightly warm? In normal use the charger or toothbrush will be slightly warm to the touch after charging for a few hours. If there is no warmth check that the charger is plugged in to the wall socket firmly. If it is, also check the wall socket by plugging a lamp or other electrical item into the wall socket to verify that the socket is live and switched on. You can also try plugging the toothbrush charger into a different wall socket that is known to be working.
Assuming that the wall socket is live, if you have access to a spare charger via a friend, relative, colleague or neighbour then try putting your toothbrush on their charger. You can also try their toothbrush on your charger.
If you have now deduced that it is your charger at fault, head over to our Oral-B chargers page or Philips Sonicare chargers page to find a suitable replacement charger. Otherwise, continue below for help fixing the toothbrush itself.
If you have dropped your electric toothbrush or knocked it onto the floor then an internal solder connection might have cracked causing a bad connection. Upon opening the toothbrush handle carefully inspect the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) and the solder connections to other parts of the toothbrush such as the motor, battery and charging coil. You can find guides to opening your toothbrush on our website. Any cracked solder joints can be repaired by reheating them with a soldering iron. The fine copper wires from the PCB to the induction coil in the bottom of the handle can easily break too.
Finally, if you decide that your toothbrush is beyond repair or it is prohibitively expensive/complicated to do so, we can help you decide which new toothbrush to buy to replace it using our best new electric toothbrush page.
This is a toothbrush and will be placed very close to water and contact with water, so water damage would be least to worry about, the manufacture should be seriously do something to solved this problem.
It could either be a failed battery or it could be water damage to the PCB inside the handle. Inspect the PCB by opening the toothbrush. The Sonicare HX6210 toothbrush should open up in a similar way to the DiamondClean model here.The battery needed for your HX6210 is available from our secure online shop here.
The problem could be the charger, or a break in the fine copper wires inside the toothbrush connecting the charging induction coil to the circuit board. There could also be water damage to the circuit board.
