From smart watches that track your heart rate to phone apps that track your bowel movements, monitoring—and improving—your health habits is easier than ever. Now, you can even track your dental hygiene routine with a smart toothbrush—and the smartest of the smart toothbrushes is a whopping $100 off for Prime Day Early Access, which is happening from October 11-12.

With over 2,000 five-star reviews, the Bluetooth-enabled Oral-B Pro 5000 Smartseries Bluetooth Toothbrush allows you to sync up the brush to your phone for real-time feedback on your brushing habits. Simply download the free app and brush away; the toothbrush will send real-time feedback to the app on your phone, showing you spots that you may have missed as well as the amount of time you focused on brushing certain areas. This helps you cater your brushing routine to target the places you might have previously ignored.

Electric toothbrushes are heralded by many dentists for their ability to get into hard-to-reach areas that would normally take a manual toothbrush user more time to thoroughly clean. A study conducted by the Cochrane Oral Health Group has shown that swapping manual toothbrushes for their electric counterparts can reduce plaque by 21 percent and gingivitis by 11 percent.

“Research shows that even with the best manual toothbrushing habits, electric toothbrushes are more effective at removing plaque, whitening teeth, stimulating, and improving gum health and a person’s overall oral hygiene,” Jonathan B. Levine, DMD, founder of JBL Dentistry in New York City, who recommends electric toothbrushes for a number of reasons, previously told Well+Good. “The little micro movements of the toothbrush head allow for you to brush more with each pass, and new technology also allows the toothbrush to assist and even improve brushing habits.”

With five different cleaning modes, the Oral-B Pro 5000 Smartseries toothbrush allows you to brush specifically for your own dental needs, whether you need a seriously deep clean or want a brighter, whiter smile. A built-in 2 minute timer pulses every 30 seconds, letting you know when to change the area of your mouth to clean, while a visible pressure sensor lights up to let you know when you’re brushing too hard.

Usually listed with a retail price of $160, the Oral-B Pro 5000 is on sale for just $60 during Prime Day. Most dentists recommend swapping out your toothbrush after three to four months of use, and this Bluetooth toothbrush is the upgrade your smile deserves.
