What’s the best electric toothbrush?

We take our testing seriously and each electric toothbrush we review goes through a full gamut of thorough tests at an independent lab. We focus on how good a toothbrush is at cleaning, how long the battery lasts and how easy it is to use.

We have a panel of triallists clean their teeth multiple times with every electric toothbrush we review, and we collect more than 2,200 before and after plaque readings to find out which toothbrushes get rid of the most.

Ever experienced the slightly ridiculous feeling you get when manual brushing with an electric toothbrush that has no charge? Well then, you’ll appreciate the importance of finding a model with a reliable battery. We test to see how many two-minute brushes you’ll get from a fully charged battery and check exactly how long each battery takes to recharge, too.

Only after all this, and more, are we fully confident about recommending the best electric toothbrushes.
