With dental work as costly as it is, the best line of defense is a good toothbrush. Perhaps you’ve always used the most affordable multi-pack you could find at the drugstore. Maybe you’ve always used whatever your mom bought for the house. Maybe you are still responsible enough to make it to the dentist every 6 months like clockwork and that’s where your toothbrushes come from. But if you’re looking for something more, something better, something more thorough, electric toothbrushes are among one of the most adult belongings you could come to own.
