COVID has changed a lot, but your dental hygene doesn't have to be one of them
With 2020 confining many of us to our homes, our dental hygiene should be a priority.
Our toothbrushes are right there in the next room, and while we've all fallen prey to waiting suspiciously long before showering, bad breath and bad teeth are inexcusable. With us spending so much time at home, what better time to invest in a toothbrush you're actually going to enjoy using? There remains an overwhelming number of electric toothbrushes on the market, and all of them are relatively pricey compared to the normal 2-for-1 packs of toothbrushes we're used to buying. So where should you spend your money? To help you narrow down your options, here are the best electric toothbrushes of 2020, in the hopes we can all go into the winter with slightly better dental hygiene.
Ranked by The New York Times as one of the best electric toothbrushes of 2020, the ProtectiveClean is devoid of unnecessary features, and instead offers only the essentials. A two-minute timer lets you know when you've efficiently brushed your teeth, and a pressure sensor beeps and lets you know when you're brushing your gums too hard. it offers a variety of brush heads for those hard to reach areas and has a long lasting 14 day battery life. Not to mention it's devoid of any unnecessary plastic, so it's very easy to wipe clean.
Another fantastic toothbrush honored by The New York Times, the Oral-B Pro offers a variety of colors, and its minimalist design is sleek and never takes up too much space when charging. It comes with a two minute timer, a pressure sensor and a unique brush head, with bristles specifically angled at 16 degrees. The head then rotates when in use, fighting to break up 3000% more plaque along the gum line specifically. It may be a little loud, but the Oral-B makes up for it with a refreshingly clean brushing experience.
Oral-B remains one of the best toothbrush brands on the market and for good reason. the SmartSeries offers six cleaning modes for every part of your mouth, and offers Bluetooth connectivity so you can track your hygiene on your iPhone. The SmartSeries brushes are on the smaller side too, which is good for those with reflux issues.
For those who really want to invest in a new toothbrush, the DiamondClean's $250 price tag might sound scary until you see what you're getting. Five different brushing modes, and a sexy minimalist charger, the DiamondClean also offers automated progress reports and real time feedback as your brushing, so you never miss a spot. It also comes with a sexy traveling case. It doesn't necessarily rotate like other electric toothbrushes, but for those who really want an upgrade, the DiamondClean is just that.
For those with softer teeth, the Colgate Hum is a perfect brush for you. It's lightweight, has a sturdy grip, and has an intuitive app that helps you not miss a single spot. The Hum also offers a 30-second-timer. When it pauses, it's time for you to move to a different side of your mouth. The battery also doesn't automatically turn off after the two minute marker is hit, which is helpful if you wanna get extra cleaned up. It's also as quiet as a mouse, and the app is free, so it doesn't jack up the price of the brush. Saving money is always a plus.
