Over the past few years, I've become obsessed with oral hygiene—a habit I developed when, during the pandemic, dentists' offices had shuttered indefinitely. The specter of a cavity haunted me, pushing me to invest in high-quality toothpaste, miles of dental floss, gadgets like tongue scrapers (a game changer), and, of, course, a state-of-the-art electric toothbrush.
Once I made these investments, I noticed that tooth stains and stale breath had, for the most part, become things of the past. So although the doors to my dentist's office are now wide open, I remain fastidious about my dental routine, which is why I was delighted to learn that a number of electric toothbrushes are now being sold at a tremendous discount as part of Amazon's holiday beauty haul, which takes place from October 24 through November 6.

Best Electric Toothbrush for Braces and Retainers
This impressive brush has a five-star rating on Amazon, and with good reason: It provides real-time feedback on the handle itself to let you know if you're brushing too hard, too soft, or if you're not brushing enough. Reviewers love it, and note that it also works well on braces and retainers.

Best Electric Toothbrush for Brushing Feedback
I've been obsessed with this toothbrush since a friend of mine posted about hers on Instagram a few years ago. This brush not only allows users to track how well they're brushing their teeth via mobile app, but it also comes with a built-in timer so you can experience real-time sensory feedback while you're brushing. Users write that the brush is also durable, that the battery is indeed long-lasting (ten days!), and that it makes brushing fun.
Pros: real-time brushing feedback via mobile app; easy setup
Cons: requires charging chord
Best Electric Toothbrush for Gum Health

One reviewer, who has struggled with gum health problems, says that their gums are now considerably tighter and healthier after switching to this brush.
Pros: targets gum health; targets whitening; pairs with a mobile app to track progress
Cons: requires charging chord
Best Electric Toothbrush for Sensitive Teeth
This toothbrush boasts a long battery life, quick charging time, and comes at an affordable cost. Customers rave about how convenient it is, and many love how its small head makes it easy to reach molars, the back of one's bottom teeth, and other crevices.
Pros: affordable; charges quickly; long battery life; small head; can be customized for sensitive teeth
Cons: vibrations not intense enough for some advanced users
Best Electric Toothbrush for Cleaning Gums
This toothbrush is great for cleansing gums as well as the gum line. It does so by gently pulsing fluid against the gum line to remove plaque, food, and more. One reviewer says that it was perfect for removing popcorn kernels that were stuck in her gum line, and she said it worked well without irritating her sensitive teeth.
Pros: long battery life; customizable (five different settings and three colorways); cleans gums
Cons: vibrates instead of spinning; vibrations may be too strong for some
Best Electric Toothbrush for a Thorough Cleaning
This soft-bristled brush comes a travel case and a whopping eight extra heads, so when you buy this item you can rest assured that you'll be set for a while. It also features four different brushing modes, all of which are designed to get into all your mouth's little nooks and crannies. One reviewer even said that their dentist praised their teeth cleanliness after they started using this brush!
Pros: wireless charging; comes with replacement heads; comes with a travelling case
Cons: no power indicator to let you know if it needs to be charged
Best Electric Toothbrush for Immediate Results

Pros: provides feedback on brushing; battery-powered
Cons: takes time to set up
An Electric Toothbrush For a Full-Mouth Cleaning
This toothbrush, which is battery operated (no chord mess here!), includes cheek and tongue cleaners for full-mouth plaque removal. Plus, its head includes floss tips in order to get the gunk out from between your teeth while you brush (though I personally swear by flossing and say you should floss in addition to brushing no matter what). One reviewer raves that after one brush, their teeth mouth felt cleaner than it did after their last professional cleaning!
Pros: inexpensive; battery-powered; includes tongue and cheek cleaners; comes with replacement heads
Cons: bristles vibrate but don't spin
Best Charcoal Electric Toothbrush

Plus, the price can't be beat!
Pros: inexpensive; comes with an extra brush; battery-powered
Cons: dentists have mixed feedback about using charcoal on teeth; doesn't come with extra heads
