Over the years we have heard countless dentists, regular people, and celebrities with impeccable grins sing the praises of their favorite electric toothbrushes. And depending on your particular dental situation — sensitive gums, delicate enamel, or even stubborn coffee stains — we’ve likely written about the very best electric toothbrush for you.
This one, the Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4100, happens to be a favorite of ballet dancer Erica Lall, whose mother is a dentist. Lall says it gets into crevices in a way regular toothbrushes can’t and that it has made a noticeable difference that even her dentist has mentioned. It’s also our favorite of Sonicare’s many electric toothbrush models, and today it’s on sale for just $30 — 40 percent off its already affordable price. According to Sonya Krasilnikov, dentist and co-founder of Dental House, the ADA-accepted toothbrush uses “vibrations that are designed to break up particles and debris and allow toothpaste and fluids to access hard-to-reach places.” And if that weren’t convincing enough, it features dentist-recommended soft bristles, a timer, a pressure sensor, and a little light that tells you when to replace the head.
