    1. The Oral-B Pro 1000 electric toothbrush, which can sense when you're brushing too hard and pulses every 30 seconds to let you know when to switch areas of the mouth, so no corner is left unclean.

    Promising review: "This is exactly what I was looking for in a powered toothbrush. It was not costly, holds a charge well, and has 30-second increments indicated when using the brush. It does not come with a case or anything but I have not really needed one. I just put it in my travel bag and it does fine. This set just comes with the brush and the charger. Nothing else is supplied. If you need new heads you will have to purchase those in addition. Pros: holds a charge well,

    30-second increments, soft bristles, inexpensive. Cons: none." —TheHobbyGuy

    Price: $44.99

    2. The Philips Sonicare Essence, an affordable sonic electric toothbrush that holds a charge for two weeks and whose "reminder" bristles fade when it's time for a replacement head, so your brush is always fresh AF.

    Promising review: "This has been the best toothbrush purchase I have ever made. This has a timer so you know when to stop brushing, and my gums have felt stronger — and even going to the dentist just a week after using it, I felt confident that this time they weren't going to tell me everything I was doing wrong...and they didn't! In fact they told me that everything looks great and I noticed my gums didn't bleed nearly as much when they were cleaning my teeth. I highly recommend this toothbrush. My teeth and gums feel amazing. And if you don't think you want to buy this because it's too cheap, just do it. The $200+ ones probably have more features, but if you're coming from a non-electronic toothbrush, this will be a huge upgrade for the price." —Cory

    Price: $24.99+ (available in pink and white)

    3. A set of plastic-free bamboo toothbrushes so you can feel just as good about your oral hygiene as you do about your ecological footprint.

    Promising review: "These are definitely not your average toothbrush. They are better. I love the soft bristles and the light toothbrush. The bamboo feels good in the hand. And when it's worn it's ok to compost it. One less thing for the landfill. They are numbered 1-4 I think to help you to remember to replace every three months, so this is a year supply for one person. I have a family of four, so it's easier for everyone to pick their number and always use that number. I will definitely order this on a subscription to save even more." —tcroc

    Price: $11.97 for a four-pack

    4. A manual charcoal toothbrush with soft bristles suitable for both adults and children, designed to eliminate dental stains, odors, and plaque all in one sleek package.

    Promising review: "I am a dental hygienist and I was very excited to try this product. My patients are always asking about the latest fads. These bristles are super soft, which I am very pleased about. The brushes are very layered in height and that causes them to really get into the nooks and crannies, especially for people with misaligned teeth. After I used it, without paste, my mouth felt like it was neutralized of odor. My teeth felt smooth and even without paste my mouth felt great. I gave one to my daughter and she loved it too." —Jennifer Wantland

    Price: $9.99 for a five-pack

    5. The PRO-SYS, an ultra-soft toothbrush with tapered bristles that's ideal for anyone with sensitive or receding gums.

    Promising review: "Wow. Where have these extra-soft brushes been all my life? I have some sensitivity due to a car accident and no matter how many soft toothbrushes I buy in the drugstore or elsewhere, none are as soft as this. It is like brushing your teeth with a feather or a cloud, and you can brush very well without causing any pain if you have issues. I will continue to order them when these wear out. It makes such a difference — now I don't have to be so careful not to hit tender areas." —Spenser2

    Price: $6.19 for a two-pack or $10.29 for a four-pack

    6. Oral-B 3D White Action toothbrush, a super-affordable, efficient battery-powered toothbrush designed to whiten teeth and break up plaque — no chargers necessary!

    Promising review: "I've tried different battery-powered toothbrushes over the years...all of them so-so. The Oral-B seems to clean better, pinpoints problem areas that are hard to get to. My oral hygienist says she sees a difference. Gums are better. I would recommend!" —Solerider

    Price: $5.97

    7. The Waterpik water flosser and sonic toothbrush set (complete with four brush heads), for a thorough floss and brush all in one device — a great choice for anyone with braces, implants, or other dental work.

    Promising review: "I purchased this for my son who recently got braces. After having them only a month, it was clear that he was having a difficult time keeping his teeth clean with his regular toothbrush. He had an awful time trying to floss with the braces. After hours of research, I decided on this brand and model. I couldn’t be happier. First, the unit is the perfect size. I love how many different attachments there are for the toothbrush. It’s perfect for those times when he gets adjusted and has pain afterwards. He can completely customize his oral care, choosing between the two different speeds, and one of the smaller or softer attachments. I’ve even bought my own separate head, and let me say… WOW. My teeth are after-the-dentist-feeling clean." —Mommyof2

    Price: $84.11 (available in black and white)

    8. The Philips Sonicare 2 Series plaque-control toothbrush, a powerful electric brush designed to remove up to six times more plaque than a manual one — with nearly 3,800 five-star reviews from happy (and clean) customers to back it up.

    Promising review: "Sweet clean teeth baby Jesus! I have been looking at getting one of these for years and wish I did it sooner. After the first use I could tell the difference from my manual toothbrush. It felt like I went to the dentist. I could feel that my teeth were more clean, and I could even see it (not that I did a bad job of brushing manually, but you'll just have to believe me on this one). The built-in quadrant timer and full mouth timer are great. Tells you when to switch from one to four quadrants and when you're done. Great price too — I signed up with the extended warranty in the box. I ordered these replacement heads. My fiancé will be getting one as well, these are WORTH the money."

    Price: $39.99+ (available in five colors)

    9. A no-frills, BPA-free set of delicate toothbrushes for your 6- to 18-month-old, with a cornerless oval shape specifically designed for your lil' one's teeth and gums.

    Promising review: "Soft and easy to grip. My 18-month-old loves to 'do-it-himself' and of course I redo them. These are a great size for his little hands and for learning good hygiene. Convenient that it is in a three-pack and was also great that I could put these on subscribe and save. Quality-wise we have no issues. These are essentially a 'green' product: recycled package, vegetable bristles, no BPA, no phthalates." —Heather Coleman

    Price: $9.95 for a three-pack or $17.70 for a six-pack

    10. And a set of colorful transitional toothbrushes for ages 3 and up — when adult teeth start to replace your kid's wobbly baby ones and you need a brush perfectly suited for the job.

    Promising review: "I'm a dentist, and this is what I use for my toddler to brush her teeth. I like that the head is a bit bigger than other toddler brushes with soft bristles. I also like the lack of Disney characters and/or superheroes." —Maureen Jacobs

    Price: $11.95 for a three-pack or $20.04 for a six-pack

    11. The Oral-B Pro 7000 SmartSeries, a fancy lil' number with six modes that's also Bluetooth-compatible, because you use an app for everything else in your life — why not for your dental hygiene too?

    Promising review: "Nice design with a lot of features. Easy-to-use Oral-B app that gives real-time feedback: initially it was weird to brush my teeth while my phone gave me feedback but it has been really helpful in aiding with habit tracking and oral care tips. The provided brush heads clean very well and they don't cause any discomfort, and the wireless charger is convenient. Long battery life: I've only had to charge it once a week. There are six different easy-to-access modes for different types of cleaning." —Nate & Amy

    Price: $159.20

    12. A super-lightweight Fairywill electric toothbrush fantastic for traveling, complete with five cleaning settings, a timer, and a long-lasting charge.,

    Promising review: "Wow. This toothbrush is INCREDIBLE! I am a previous Sonicare toothbrush gal, and my toothbrush recently broke and I wanted to try something new/different/cheaper, and I am SO unbelievably happy with this product. The toothbrush is super light which is great for traveling with it. and just in general it's very easy to hold and to use. It has five settings, which is really nice, depending on what type of brush I want. I drink a ton of coffee so my go-tos are the clean mode and then I do the polish mode for 30 seconds. My teeth are noticeably whiter, which is great. The other thing I really like about this toothbrush as opposed to others that I've used is that it doesn't use a base to charge. You just need a USB charging port. It makes it really easy for transport and doesn't take up much space at all on the counter." —Jerri B

    Price: $25.99

    13. A set of disposable mini toothbrushes, so you don't have to sacrifice fresh breath and a clean mouth when you're on the go, taking a long flight, or looking to freshen up after a meal and can't get to a toothbrush.

    Promising review: "The Wisp brushes were exactly what I wanted: a handy way to clean my teeth after a dinner out or on a day where brushing my teeth didn't quite happen before rushing out the door for an appointment. The Wisps are astonishingly good at cleaning teeth, despite its tiny head and single drop of toothpaste." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $12.49 for a 32-pack

    14. A Dr. Collins Perio toothbrush, with soft, slim, tapered polyester bristles to reduce enamel abrasion — to make brushing more comfortable for those with braces, receding gums, and general sensitivity.,

    Promising review: "This is a great toothbrush. I have really sensitive teeth and recently had braces and a gum graft. I couldn't imagine brushing with anything with harder bristles. The bristles are so soft and gentle on my teeth and gums. I can literally get my teeth squeaky clean with this toothbrush while being gentle." —mj8008

    Price: $8.97 for a three-pack

    15. The Oral-B Vitality Floss Action electric toothbrush with "MicroPulse" bristles and a two-minute timer, to ensure a deep clean that'll have you feeling just-left-the-dentist fresh.,

    Promising review: "I have the Pro 1000. I bought this as an inexpensive backup. I take it camping and stuff like that. The two features it lacks is notifying you every 30 seconds to change quadrants (but it still notifies you when two minutes are up), and it does not protect you against yourself if you press too hard. So pay attention and let the brush action do the work. Don't push hard against your teeth! It does not have a little indicator light on its charging base. (that blinks when charging/off when fully charged) like the Pro 1000, but you do not need it. Leave it plugged in all the time. If you grab your toothbrush for camping or whatever it will last a week or two. Going longer? Bring the tiny charging base along as well." —Millie

    Price: $21.72

    16. And the Philips Sonicare Diamond Clean, the holy grail of the Sonicare series, which features a travel case, charging glass, five cleaning modes, and a 30-second interval timer — plus it's available in five eye-catching colors.

    Promising review: "This is literally THE best toothbrush I've used in my entire life. Worth every penny. I bought the rose gold, and it's gorgeous. I already have white teeth, but I bought it because I have plaque that builds up around a permanent retainer installed behind my lower teeth after having braces in high school. Regular brushing and flossing doesn't remove all the food particles, and every year my dentist hounds me over it. It gets incredibly painful when she has to scrape off a year's worth of buildup off the area. I just bought this sucker, and in ONE use, it literally just blasted away the plaque residing on and around my retainer and teeth that had been there for about four months. You know that feeling after you get your teeth professionally cleaned and they're all smooth and shiny, and you run your tongue all over them? Same feeling as when you first got your braces off? Yeah, same exact feeling. Amazing. Every single tooth feels like it was just professionally cleaned in the two minutes it took to brush my teeth this morning."—Laurinda

    $159+ (available in five colors)
