So What Is The Best Toothbrush For Oral Health?

We get a lot of questions from patients on how best to keep their teeth clean, and one of the most common subjects is how to pick the “best” toothbrush for oral health. We love this question, as it shows a proactive mindset towards oral health, something that is great for healthy teeth and a healthy smile. Truth be told, you can keep your teeth perfectly clean and healthy with just about any proper toothbrush, but to help you pick yours, we have compiled a few of what we think are the best toothbrushes on the market.

Best Affordable Toothbrush – Colgate Plus Bi-Level

While it is not the prettiest or fanciest toothbrush in the world, you cannot go wrong with a good bi-level toothbrush, and Colgate’s is the best affordable toothbrush. The brush is made with soft bristles at two levels, allowing even cleaning around corners and crevices of the teeth. With conscientious and regular use, a bi-level toothbrush can keep your teeth strong and healthy with regular use.


  • Diamond-shaped head for easy access to back teeth
  • Rubber grip handle
  • Two levels of bristles

Best Precision Toothbrush – Oral-B CrossAction Pro-Health Soft

For more precision cleaning, it may be a good idea to get a toothbrush with a smaller head. This makes it easier to maneuver the brush into the tight spaces around teeth, helping to remove food and plaque from even the toughest locations. For that kind of precision, Oral-B’s CrossAction ProHealth Soft toothbrush is an effective and efficient choice.


  • CrossAction bristles lift out and sweep away 90% of plaque
  • Extra long bristles to clean hard to reach places
  • Indicator bristles fade when time to replace your brush
  • Tongue and cheek cleaner

Best Electric Toothbrush – Philips Sonicare DiamondClean

You can think of this as the Ferrari of toothbrushes. While it may be a bit flashy, it seriously works. In the opinion of our Green Bay dentists, the Sonicare DiamondClean is the best electric toothbrush because it comes with five different brushing modes, including whitening and gum care, and it also includes an automatic timer that stops after you have brushed for two minutes. For someone looking for the best toothbrush, the Sonicare DiamondClean has it all.


  • Sensors and app help improve cleaning technique
  • 3 different premium smart brush heads automatically select optimal setting from 4 modes and 3 intensities
  • Timers to encourage a full 2 minute brushing
