Whether you get your teeth cleaned every six months or haven't seen the inside of your dentist's office in who knows how long, we could all be doing more for our oral health.
It's estimated that up to 47 per cent of adults have some form of gum disease — a troubling statistic considering gum disease has been linked to cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis and even pneumonia.
However, hope is not lost. Studies have found that electric toothbrushes offer a more enhanced clean than manual toothbrushes, resulting in less plaque and bleeding.
For those looking to whip their oral health into shape, it's worth checking out the Oral-B Power iO Series 6 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush, which is currently $50 off at Amazon Canada.
The Oral-B Power iO Series 6 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush has earned an average rating of 4.6 stars from Amazon shoppers, and for a good reason.
The rechargeable toothbrush uses AI recognition and an interactive display to provide real-time coaching to its user. Its smart pressure sensor helps keep you from brushing too hard to protect your gums and enamel, and the two-minute timer pulsates every 30 seconds, helping guide you to a complete clean.
The toothbrush features five smart modes for personalized brushing: daily clean, whitening, gum care, sensitive and intense, and is available in three countertop-friendly colours.
What people are saying
With 230 five-star reviews singing its praises, many Amazon shoppers say the Oral-B toothbrush is a great buy.
No other toothbrush has "cleaned as thoroughly as this one," according to one reviewer, who noted that the $150 investment is "worth every penny."
The rotating brush head "makes a world of difference," says another shopper. It provides the same "fresh cleaning" feeling you get "after you go to the dentist," they write, adding that it's "life-changing."
According to a third self-proclaimed "picky" reviewer, the Oral-B Power iO Series 6 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush is the "best" toothbrush they have "owned in [their] life." It makes you "feel like you've been to the dentist," they say.
Despite its positive reviews, some shoppers complain about the size and design of the toothbrush.
It's "ergonomically awkward," writes one user, and can be difficult to "manipulate in your mouth," they say.
It "cleans well," but the "brush it too big," says another.
For that post-dentist feeling, Amazon reviews stand by the Oral-B Power iO Series 6 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush. With a 4.6-star rating behind it, users say its "worth every penny" — especially at its sale price — however, some note that it can be awkward to handle.
