This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in January of 2019. We could all stand to embrace better habits when it comes to our teeth. While there are plenty of electric toothbrushes available on the market, it can be tough to find ones that are gentle for sensitive or receding gums, while still being effective enough to provide a thorough cleaning. Not only do all of these models meet those requirements, most also offer a number of other handy features. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

January 23, 2019:

We carefully reviewed every model on this list to ensure they perform admirably in the cleaning and whitening department, while also including special features that prevent users from overbrushing and potentially causing more damage.
