    1. An entry-level Philips Sonicare HX5611/01 Essence electric toothbrush for those hesitant about making the switch (and investment) from manual brushing. An easy-start option gently increases power with the first 12 uses to help newbies adjust.

    2. A five-mode (cleaning, whitening, sensitive, polishing, and massage) Fairywill electric toothbrush with USB to make charging (and brushing) on the road as easy as it is at home.

    3. A four-mode AquaSonic Black Series Ultra Whitening electric toothbrush, because the hidden cost in switching from manual is always in replacement brush heads and this one comes with eight of them! That means you might not have to buy new ones for up to two and a half years.

    4. A Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4100 electric toothbrush with a pressure sensor that gently pulses to let you know when you're brushing too hard. Take it easy on those gums!

    5. An Oral-B Pro 1000 electric toothbrush which pulses every 30-seconds (during the two-minute timer) so you know when to move to the next quadrant of teeth for an evenly clean mouth.

    6. A two-pack of five-mode Sonic electric toothbrushes (but not Sonicare) for significant others who enjoy dental hygiene and saving money. Bonus: a five-minute fast-charge via USB will get you a full day's worth of use.

    7. A three-mode Oral-B 3000 Smart Series electric toothbrush with Bluetooth to track and personalize your brushing habits via the Oral-B app. A little extra for sure, but super helpful too.

    8. A three-mode (clean, whitening, and gum care) Philips Sonicare 5100 HX6850/60 electric toothbrush for those looking to spend a few extra bucks to get all the quality basics (and a quality brush) but not really looking for any bells and whistles.

    9. A five-mode Oral-B Pro 5000 Smartseries electric toothbrush with Bluetooth connectivity for real-time feedback about how well you're brushing and a light-up pressure sensor for keeping things nice and easy on your teeth and gums.

    10. A three-mode Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 6100 electric toothbrush that basically guarantees (says it on the box) that your teeth will exhibit "up to 100% less stains in seven days" compared to a manual brush. Talk about putting your money where your mouth is.

    11. A six-mode Oral-B Genius Pro 8000 electric toothbrush with smartphone-enabled "Position Detection" which uses facial recognition so you know exactly where you've brushed, and more importantly, where you've missed. Also, you can charge your smartphone, as well as the brush, with the smart travel case.
