Long gone are the days when buying a new toothbrush was simple. Today there are many choices from manual to battery powered or rechargeable. A good electric toothbrush can improve oral health, while a bad one costs a lot of money and does not do what advertisements promise.

Two brands dominate the market for rechargeable toothbrushes for years, Oral-B and Philips. And that did not change in 2017. They both have a wide line of products from budget to luxury toothbrushes.
