There are two types of people in the world—those who use a manual toothbrush and those who prefer electric toothbrushes. Or, maybe you’re in the small population of those who use both. Wherever you fall, we're not judging. In fact, The American Dental Association (ADA) says that both electric and manual toothbrushes are adequate for removing plaque.
But admittedly, there’s something about an electric toothbrush that leaves us feeling like we have a healthier mouth. Let’s be frank—is there anything more satisfying than electronically removing the germy film that adheres to your teeth? Maybe it’s the oscillating heads that win us over, or perhaps it's the multiple modes that customize the brushing experience. Whatever it is, we’re sold.
And we have you covered if you’re looking to grab one at a deep discount. Head to Amazon Prime's Early Access event to enjoy steep markdowns on your favorite electric toothbrushes. And of course be sure to check out out all of our favorite Prime Early Access Deals.

Best Electric Toothbrush for Position Detection
Need help remembering when to switch quadrants when brushing? Yeah, we hear you.

And, it features five brushing modes so you can customize your brushing experience based on your specific needs.

Cons: Doesn’t stay charged for more than 4 days; strong force not ideal for sensitive teeth.
Best Long Lasting Electric Toothbrush
It’s one thing to have an electric toothbrush that cleans, but it’s another to have one that cleans and whitens. This gentle yet effective brush whitens teeth in just one week when compared to a manual toothbrush. It has a pressure sensor that protects teeth and gums from excess brushing pressure for those moments you get a bit carried away. Best of all is the phenomenal battery life. On paper, it says you can use it for two weeks without a recharge, but we squeezed out at least three weeks.
Pros: Chargeable travel case; cool color.
Cons: Vibrations for clean and gum care modes are similar.

Pros: Pressure Sensor lights up to alert you when you are brushing too hard; connects with your smartphone to give you real-time feedback.
Cons: A bit noisy.
