If you're not sure exactly what to buy, Sophya Morghem, DMD, MS, a dentist at Sunset Dentistry in San Francisco, suggests a high-tech electric toothbrush. "I recommend an electric toothbrush to 99 percent of my patients," says Dr. Morghem. "You want to make sure it comes with a pressure sensor, so it tells you when you're brushing too hard, and a replaceable head." She's a big fan of Sonicare products, like the DiamondClean ($229) or the ProtectiveClean ($69), which is $20-off.
As for other dental accessories, don't skimp on the floss. "People seem to think that flossing is just to get the food out, when it's actually to get the sides of the teeth you're not cleaning with a toothbrush," says Dr. Morghem. "My favorite is Cocofloss which gets thicker as moisture is added to it so it kind of acts like a loofah."
As for things to avoid? Teeth whitening kits are a no-no, on and off Prime Day: "It's best to go see your dentist," Dr. Morghem explains. At-home products, like gels and whitening strips, can hurt the enamel and burn your gums if they're not placed on your teeth properly. "There's nothing better than custom trays."
The best toothbrush and dental hygiene product deals for Prime Day
Dubbed the “Tesla of Toothbrushes,” the Philips Sonicare ExpertClean 7500 is currently $20 off the regular price. This high-tech toothbrush makes brushing correctly a breeze, splitting your teeth into six sections and alerting you each time a section is complete. It also pairs with a free app, so you can track progress and build healthy habits the more you brush. Available in black, white, and light pink.
If you’re looking for a more affordable option that doesn’t skimp on serious cleaning, check out the Oral-B Genius X Limited electric toothbrush, now 30-percent off the regular price for Prime members. This powerful toothbrush comes with all the bells-and-whistles Dr. Morghem recommends: a soft, replaceable head, different cleaning modes for sensitive teeth, and a pressure sensor that tells you when you’re brushing too hard. Available in black, white, and purple.
According to a survey of 40,000 people, the Colgate Hum was voted the best electric toothbrush of the year. Not only does it have a Bluetooth-based app that allows you to track your brushing habits, it also leverages a pressure sensor, three cleaning modes, and a timer, so you actually complete those 2-minute sessions. Choose from a bright royal blue or summery teal and brush your teeth in style.
This water flosser has over 17,000 reviews and it’s almost 25-percent off for Prime Day. While Dr. Morghem says a water flosser shouldn’t replace your regular floss, a liquid flosser can help gently flush-out any food that gets stuck in between your teeth. This Zerhunt model packs 1,800 pulses per minute, so debris won’t stand a chance, while your gums will relish in the high-intensity massage.
You can never go wrong with a classic. The Aquarius Water Flosser is 43 percent off its regular price ($70.) Each flosser has an advanced pressure control system with 10 settings and seven different removable tips, so you can customize your whole experience. It’s available in black, white, gray, purple, and navy.
Stock up on Dr. Morghem’s favorite floss and snag a four-pack of Cocofloss for 20 percent off. This coconut-oil infused floss is coated in a vegan-friendly wax that gently sweeps away debris and plaque—all while making it easy to get a 360-degree clean of your teeth.
