Oral health is an important factor in caring for your overall health and wellness, so a toothbrush that keeps your mouth in top shape is essential at every age.

While there's nothing wrong with a good old fashioned manual toothbrush, electric versions have come a long way in bringing that dentist-clean feeling home. Take the Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 6500 Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush for example.

This top-rated electric toothbrush is a hit among Amazon shoppers, and right now you'll find it on major sale.

The details

Philips’s advanced sonic technology allows you to tackle your tooth and gum health efficiently for an “effective, yet gentle clean.” If you’re someone who brushes too hard, the Sonicare’s built-in pressure sensor issues a warning to help protect your gum health.

The BrushSync technology also allows your brush to select the best mode and intensity to protect your gums and teeth, and even alerts you when it's time to replace your brush head.

This Sonicare features three cleaning modes: clean, white and gum care mode. While the clean mode focuses on cleaning your teeth and removing plaque, you can add an extra polish and remove surface stains with white mode or focus on optimal gum health.

What people are saying

This toothbrush has earned a 4.6-star rating based on more than 7,000 customer reviews. Amazon shoppers have called this rechargeable toothbrush "outstanding" and a great way to keep your mouth feeling clean and fresh.

"Feels like I've just been to the dentist," one shopper noted. They went on to add that this toothbrush makes it possible to reach "difficult places with ease" and it has become "a helpful tool" in their nighttime routine.

One reviewer praised the Philips Sonicare for being the "best toothbrush I have bought so far" while another called it "sleek, light and great value for money."

"Cleans well and is comfortable to use," reads one review.

Despite all of the positive reviews, some shoppers have found that "there really isn't a difference" between this toothbrush and less expensive models. If you're someone who likely won't use all of the added bells and whistles of the Philips Sonicare, you may be better off opting for one of the similar and more affordable alternatives.

Verdict

If you're looking to improve your oral hygiene to protect your gums and get a deep cleaning at home, the Sonicare ProtectiveClean brush might be for you. However, if you're not looking for a toothbrush with various settings and speeds, this might not be the best option for you.
