8 of the best electric toothbrushes in the UK

We have tracked down the very best electric toothbrushes so you can get a deeper clean every day.

By Joseph Green

We’re going to assume from the outset that you already own an electric toothbrush, because if you don’t, you need to get with the times. Seriously, who has the energy nowadays to move the brush back and forth manually? We’re not cavemen anymore, guys.

If you do already own an electric toothbrush, you’ll know that these devices have come an awfully long way in a relatively short space of time. Gone are the days when these brushes were all about the oscillating brush head, and nothing else. No, these days, electric toothbrushes have multiple cleaning modes, Bluetooth connectivity, pressure sensors, and much more.

So if you’re feeling pretty smug, thinking that you’ve got one up on all those still using a manual brush, we’re here to bring you back down to earth. Unless you’ve got an electric toothbrush with all the bells and whistles, you need to get off your high horse immediately and consider your options.

There is a wide range of top quality electric toothbrushes currently on the market, from some of the biggest names in technology and grooming. We have worked our way through this selection to bring you the very best devices, so that you can upgrade to the product that is perfect for you.

These are the best electric toothbrushes for 2019.


Bluetooth connected • Smart coaching • Brush heads included • Pressure control • Battery life

Pricey • Only plug charging

One of the best toothbrushes from Oral-B, with a handy pressure sensor that alerts you if you brush too hard.

1. Oral-B Genius 8000 CrossAction Electric Toothbrush

Pressure control reduces brushing speed and alerts you if you brush too hard.

  • Bluetooth-enabled:
    Yes
  • Battery:
    More than two weeks on a single charge
  • Brushing modes:
    Five
  • Included:
    Three toothbrush heads and travel case

The Genius 8000 CrossAction Electric Toothbrush is one of the best Oral-B models on the market.


The Genius 8000 uses an intuitive brushing system that helps you brush like your dentist recommends, with clever position detection technology that ensures you cover all areas of your mouth. Oral-B also claims that the Genius 8000 removes up to 100% more plaque compared to a regular manual toothbrush, although we feel like the “up to” is key here.


Your delicate gums are protected thanks to the SmartRing and pressure control technology, that reduces brushing speed and alerts you to be gentler if you brush too hard. This is great news for anyone that suffers from gum sensitivity.


The Oral-B Genius 8000 is compatible with Cross Action, 3D White, Sensi Ultrathin, Sensitive Clean, Precision Clean, Floss Action, Tri Zone, Dual Clean, Power Tip, and Ortho Care brush heads.


Five cleaning modes • Travel charger • Two-year warranty and 28-day money-back guarantee • Sonic technology • Stylish finish

One of the most expensive on this list • Reports of reliability issues

It’s a little pricey, but you’re getting a sonic electric toothbrush that provides a deeper clean.

2. Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Electric Toothbrush

Sonic technology pulses water between your teeth, to break up and sweep away plaque.

  • Bluetooth-enabled:
    No
  • Battery:
    Up to two weeks on a single charge
  • Cleaning modes:
    Five
  • Included:
    Charger and USB travel charger

The Sonicare DiamondClean electric toothbrush is probably the most stylish Philips model. The DiamondClean is finished in sleek matte ceramic, with an elegant design that’s highlighted from within by lights that glow and fade when not in use. It’s a classy and minimalist look.


Of course, it’s not all about the design. The DiamondClean also delivers strong performance, with the promise that the Premium Plaque head removes up to 10 times more plaque in just two weeks (compared to a manual toothbrush).


You get the choice of five cleaning modes, with sonic technology pulsing water between your teeth to break up and sweep plaque away. The 14-day battery life is also pretty decent, and the 28-day money-back guarantee is even better.


Artificial Intelligence tracks where you are brushing • Automatically reduces brushing speed if you brush your teeth too hard • Charging travel case • Six cleaning modes

The most expensive option

It’s the most expensive toothbrush on this list, but that’s because it’s really impressive in a number of ways.

3. Oral-B Genius X Electric Toothbrush

Artificial Intelligence tracks where you are brushing in your mouth to provide personalised feedback in the app.

  • Bluetooth-enabled:
    Yes
  • Battery:
    Up to two weeks on a single charge
  • Cleaning modes:
    Six
  • Included:
    Smart USB travel case and charging station

The Oral-B Genius X electric toothbrush is about as smart as it gets, with motion sensors and Artificial Intelligence that recognise your brushing style and guide you to your best results every day.


The Artificial Intelligence tracks where you are brushing, and this feeds into the Oral-B app, which in turn gives you personalised feedback, so you know where you need to focus more or less. It’s pretty clever stuff, and a big step up from a lot of the other models in this list.


This advanced toothbrush protects your delicate gums and helps prevent any future issues, by the combination of the Gum Guard technology, 360 SmartRing, and Pressure Control. This alerts you to reduce your speed when you brush too hard and tells you where you overbrush for a gentler routine.


The battery that lasts more than two weeks with one full charge, but if that fails you, you can rely on the charging travel case.


Good value • Five cleaning modes • Long battery life • One-year after sale service

A more stripped-back electric toothbrush that focuses on providing effective brushing for people on the move.

  • Bluetooth-enabled:
    No
  • Battery:
    30 days
  • Cleaning modes:
    Five
  • Included:
    Three brush heads

The Fairywill electric toothbrush is apparently capable of making 40,000 micro-brushes per minute, which seems like a lot. This helps to remove up to 100% more plaque and stains, compared with a regular manual toothbrush.


With five cleaning modes (white, clean, sensitive, polish, and massage) and a lightweight design, this USB toothbrush is easy to use and effective, with a two-minute smart timer that reminds
