Deep clean: 8 best electric toothbrushes

For sparkling and healthy pearly whites, it’s worth investing in a hard-working brush. Here’s our pick of this year’s products 

Dentists overwhelmingly recommend electric toothbrushes over manual ones for keeping your pearly whites sparkling and your gums healthy.

But simply buying an electric toothbrush doesn't guarantee great results. You’ll need to find the best one for your needs, as well as make sure you brush at least twice daily, spend at least two minutes a session brushing and use the proper brushing technique.

With toothbrush technology improving all the time, it will come as no surprise that the newest models tend to be the most superior, with some even helping you with things like timing and technique. So we’ve rounded up the most effective new electric toothbrushes available this year.

Verdict:

Philips Sonicare DiamondClean is a lot to pay out on a toothbrush, but we think it’s an investment worth making if you can afford it. For a cheap and cheerful option, the iActive Set of Two Pocket Sonic Toothbrushes is a worthwhile purchase.
