Electric toothbrush reviews

We test 10 electric toothbrushes in the CHOICE labs, including models from Colgate, Oral B and Philips.

Last updated: 19th May 2014

The cost of an electric toothbrush can seem pretty extravagant compared to a twin-pack of disposable brushes. So do they outperform their cheaper cousins? We put 10 of the most popular models, priced from $47 to $300, through their paces to find out which ones:

  • were easiest to use,
  • cleaned teeth best,
  • had the longest-lasting battery time

Part of our test results came from a user trial. Trialists were given each toothbrush to use and asked to fill out a questionnaire rating ease of use, how comfortable it was to hold, and how clean it made their teeth.
