Best Electric Toothbrush for Plaque Control
The Philips Sonicare 2 is one of the least expensive electric toothbrushes Philips offers. With over 5,000 positive reviews on Amazon and a 4.3 rating, this older model will not be going anywhere anytime soon. It features a two-minute timer, rechargeable battery, and less noise than any other pick on our list, all for right around $50. Need we say more?
Does not include a travel case and some users report the toothbrush being a bit nosier than advertised. Additionally, replacement brush heads for the Philips Sonicare 2 Series are slightly more expensive at $27 for three ($9 each), almost double the cost of Oral-B Pro 1000 replacement heads.
- Rated #2 in 7 Best Electric Toothbrushes
Details: Philips is a popular and trusted brand that consistently offers quality and value, and the Philips Sonicare 2 Series is no exception. In fact, given the superior sonic technology, you cannot buy a better sonic brush for this price. Oh, and did we mention it comes in 5 different colors?
Features: Like all of the brushes on our list, the Philips Sonicare 2 Series features a 2-minute timer and 30-second quad pacer that alerts you when it's time to move from one quadrant to the next. While this Philips model is slower than the DimondClean, with up to 31,000 brush strokes per minute, the ultrasonic design more than makes up for what this brush lacks in power and will remove plaque and eliminate destructive bacteria, leaving your mouth feeling cleaner than you ever thought possible.
The Philips Sonicare 2 Series is much quieter than our top pick and also has about twice the battery life. However, the ultrasonic vibrations are a bit too vigorous for some, so if you've got very sensitive teeth or a small mouth maybe consider looking elsewhere.
Price: At just under $40 for a long-lasting, ultrasonic toothbrush (including a 2-year warranty) we guarantee you will get your money's worth from this product.
