While you’ve probably been bombarded by social media ads for snazzy start-up electric toothbrush brands, when we asked dentists and orthodontists which brushes they actually use and recommend, they all said to stick to the classics — like Philips Sonicare. Backed by years of scientific research, Sonicare brushes use oscillating, ultrasonic vibrations to blast away particles and debris that are invisible to the naked eye. If you still haven’t upgraded your manual toothbrush, now’s the time: For today only, you can buy the Flexcare Platinum model (a close cousin to one we’ve called the Tesla of electric toothbrushes) for only $83 — or 45 percent off. It’s got two cleaning modes (deep clean and whitening), a pressure sensor to alert you when you’re brushing too hard, and a travel case for bringing it with you wherever you go.
