While you’ve likely been bombarded by ads on the subway or social media for new, start-up electric toothbrush brands, when we asked dentists what actually works they recommended sticking to the classics — namely, Oral-B. These toothbrushes rotate and vibrate to blast away plaque, and the small, round brush heads let you get to every crevice of your teeth and gums. Pia Lieb, founder of Cosmetic Dentistry Center NYC, loves this advanced version. It features a pressure sensor that turns red if you’re brushing too hard and comes with a phone holder so you can follow guidance on the app while you brush. “Having the app does work because it makes you self-conscious of really brushing for two full minutes,” Lieb says. This tricked-out brush will normally set you back $180, but for today only you can get one for just $100 (or 44 percent off) at Amazon.
