The best price electric toothbrush are clinically proven to do a better job than the manual brushes of old and should be part of everyone’s everyday dental routine. After all, we’d all like squeaky clean teeth and a whiter smile – and absolutely no-one enjoys fillings or root canal surgery.

However, finding the best toothbrush for you can be a minefield. Not only do all the toothbrushes look nigh-on identical, but the manufacturers seem to have decided that confusion is good for business, producing several different ranges with different characteristics all at the same time.

Well, rest assured that we’ve done our homework to help you pick the right toothbrush. All the models reviewed here will get your teeth squeaky clean, even if they vary widely in terms of brushing technology, battery life, accessories, extra functions and price.

Top 10 Best Price Electric Toothbrush In UK 2021

Here is a list of 10 good price electric toothbrushes that we have carefully selected for you.

1. Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Deep Clean

There’s a lot to like about this toothbrush, starting with the promise on the box: “Removes up to 10 X more plaque”. It’s about as stylish as an electric toothbrush can be, and it comes with a travel USB charging case that looks more like a Bluetooth speaker.

Then there are the variety of settings: Gum Health, which adds an extra minute for low-powered gum brushing; Deep Clean, a three-minute power wash; and White, which supposedly works harder to remove those coffee and tea stains you’re likely to get in the morning.

The brushing itself is good, and I like the extra features – if not the undersized accompanying cup. Essentially, it’s a very good electric toothbrush, charges quickly, and stays powerful for a long time. But a glance at the price will show that those features do come at a premium.

2. Colgate Pro Clinical 250+

This toothbrush has a really simple design and minimal features. It promises 5 X more plaque removal – and very little faff.

The Colgate Pro Clinical 250+ essentially doubles down on the essentials: soft bristles, a handy travel case, and the all-important timer. If toothbrushes were massages, this Colgate would be calming aromatherapy rather than a back-cracking session. The soft bristles would be ideal for those with sensitive gums. It’s also one of the quickest to fully charge, at just 10 hours.

3. Oral-B iO

One year since Oral-B dazzled us with the over-engineering of its Genius X model, the iO came for its crown with no fewer than 250 new patents, overhauling not just the user interface with a flashy new graphic display and LED pressure sensor but an entirely new brushing technique.

Combining oscillation rotation with micro-vibrations in the brush head itself, along with a redesigned brush head that contours each tooth to get to work on gumline plaque, it offers the most thorough clean you could ask of a toothbrush. It has all the flashy design add-ons you’d want for that kind of money too, from the welcome message you’ll receive when you turn the brush on to the sleek magnetic charger.

It’s bordering on ridiculous how far toothbrush tech is coming along, but from the functional upgrade to the borderline gratuitous ones, the iO sure does put a smile on our face.

4. Oral B Genius 9000

Oral-B’s Genius 9000 design is the first to incorporate a brand new “Gum Guard” technology. It has a unique position detection, meaning that in comparison to your average toothbrush, up to 100 per cent more plaque will be removed.

Through the 360 SmartRing and pressure control features, which alter to reduce speed when brushing too hard and inform you where you over-brush for a gentler routine. Best of all, you only have to charge the battery once every two weeks.

5. Oral-B Pro 2 2500N

The Oral-B Pro 2500 includes a pressure sensor, which slows down the brush and warns you with a red light if you’re pressing it too hard. There might only be two modes to choose from – daily clean and gum care – but the round brush heads do a great job of cleaning teeth and getting into the gaps. While cheaper, it manages the same 40,000 pulses and 8,000 oscillations per minute as the more expensive Oral-B brushes.

What’s more, the Pro 2 2500N feels sturdy and well made, even if the small opening halfway up the brush head is liable to get clogged with gunk. Oral-B also scores points for including a basic travel case in the box.

While the previous-generation Pro 2500 was dogged by poor battery life, the new model features a lithium-ion battery that lasts around two weeks – and there’s now a warning light to tell you when it’s running out. If you don’t need the fancy connected features of Oral-B’s high-end brushes, this does a great job of brushing – nothing more, nothing less.

6. Philips Sonicare DailyClean 3100

The DailyClean 3100 is now Philips’ entry-level Sonicare brush, but in actual use you’d struggle to tell; the core technology still works brilliantly and it’s compatible with all the same brush heads.

In fact, in some ways this is your ideal first Sonicare brush; the chunky handle is comfortable to hold while brushing, and there’s an easy start feature where the brush takes things easy during the first week of use while steadily ramping up to its full 31,000 brush movements per minute. There’s still the usual subtle vibration alert to encourage you to brush each quarter of your mouth for 30 seconds, with a bigger alert when it’s time to stop.

This brush is based on Philips last-generation Sonicare technology, which isn’t a huge issue, but it still uses a NiMH battery. Normally we’d consider this a dealbreaker, as you need to run the toothbrush down completely then charge it for a full 24 hours. What saves it, however, is that the battery life is exceptional; while Philips says it’s good for two weeks of brushing, we reckon you could easily get away with a month or more.

7. Foreo ISSA 2

Foreo’s ISSA 2 is a stylish alternative to the traditional toothbrush, with bristles and body made from hygienic silicone. There’s only has one cleaning mode, but it has an impressive 16 power levels and two brush heads – one that is completely made of silicone and one that combines silicone and soft bristles for a very gentle clean.

Using a silicone brush head feels extremely odd, and after the onslaught of an Oral B, you can feel a little short-changed in the squeaky-clean department but give it a chance and the supersonic 11,000 brush strokes per min does get your teeth clean.

It can be charged using USB and it will warn you when the battery is running low instead of just running out of steam mid-brush, although that won’t be an issue all that often, as the battery can last an entire year on a single charge.

8. Curaprox Hydrosonic Pro

If you’re fed up with braces, implants or bridges getting in the way of your brushing, look to this cleverly designed sonic toothbrush. It comes with three differently sized brush heads to help you clean both teeth and gums thoroughly, while seven cleaning modes allow for sensitive and more abrasive brushing according to your needs.

Our testers found it easy to control, with many praising its good looks and compact size. Their teeth felt much cleaner after use and the majority were satisfied with its battery life. It lacks a pressure sensor, which is disappointing at this price point, and it turned off easily while testers were adjusting the settings. But overall, we loved it.

9. Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4300 

The Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4300 electric toothbrush gently removes up to seven times more plaque than a manual toothbrush. The built-in pressure sensor lets you know if you are brushing too hard and the smart brush head replacement reminder alerts you when you need to replace your brush head. This is great news for the forgetful types.

The Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4300 uses sonic technology to drive fluid deep between teeth to effectively remove plaque in-between teeth and along your gum line. It’s a powerful device.

The included travel case makes it easy for you to take your electric toothbrush with you wherever you go. This is particularly useful for those who travel a lot, and live out of a small bag for lengthy periods at a time.

10. Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4300

The handle is slim, solid and well built and does have all the hallmarks of a more premium option. There are some more exciting colour options available, too. Although the 4300 has a single cleaning mode, it has two different intensity settings. This means you can choose a less intense brushing action if you suffer with sensitive teeth and gums.

A built-in timer and pacer encourages you to brush for the correct amount of time. It powers off at the end of the two minute cleaning cycle, so you know you haven’t brushed for long enough if the brush hasn’t turned off.

When it’s time to replace your brush head, a light on the handle of the 4300 illuminates. Worn bristles lead to less effective cleaning, so this is a welcome feature. Included in the box is a travel case, which protects the handle and brush head when travelling.

How to choose the best price electric toothbrush for you

What features should I look out for?
Battery life is the biggie. Unless you plan to keep your toothbrush recharging when it’s not in use, you should look for newer models boasting a lithium-ion battery. With one of these you can brush without a recharge for anywhere between two and six weeks, as opposed to the seven days you might have had from the older brushes.

Other nice-to-have features include a brushing timer and pressure sensors to warn you when you’re pressing too hard and risking damage to your gums. Bundled extras such as travel cases may also come in handy, and especially so if the toothbrush can be charged in the case using a USB cable – it’s one fewer charger to carry. Finally, check if the handle is comfortable to hold. Some of us just can’t get on with a brush that’s too chunky or thin.

Do I need a Bluetooth-enabled toothbrush?
Bluetooth-enabled “smart” toothbrushes are growing in popularity. They work with companion apps that time your brushes, keep a diary of your activity and provide oral hygiene tips or snippets of news. These features are fun and can be useful if you often skimp on or neglect your dental workouts, but they’re by no means essential. They’re also highly reliant on the quality of the apps themselves, and on how prepared you are to take your smartphone to the bathroom every morning for your brushing.

Which replacement heads should I buy?
This can be a confusing experience, but these days you’ll find that most modern toothbrushes make buying replacement heads a relatively simple affair.

Many of Oral-B’s current heads work on its entire range of brushes, although, as Oral-B makes several different designs of head, it’s worth buying smaller twin-packs to decide which you like best. Its CrossAction, FlossAction and PrecisionClean heads all feel quite different in use.

Conclusion

Above is our list of 10 best price electric toothbrushes. Because we have carefully evaluated each element of a brush, you don’t have to worry about the quality they deliver, just buy and feel.
