Every year, consumers are on the lookout for the products that are not only popular, but that offer the most value for the price. 2009 is no exception, nor is the electric toothbrush market. If you’re looking for the most popular 2009 electric toothbrushes, popular retailer amazon.com offers a glimpse at what consumers are buying, complete with customer ratings.
Philips Sonicare Essence 5300 Power Toothbrush
According to amazon.com, the Philips Sonicare Essence 5300 Power Toothbrush is the bestselling electric toothbrush on amazon.com. With over 300 reviews and retailing for just over $50, Philips Sonicare also boasts the distinction of being the #1 electric toothbrush brand recommended by dentists. With a history of quality and great consumer reviews, the Philips Sonicare Essence 5300 Power Toothbrush is one of 2009’s top electric toothbrushes.
Philips Sonicare FlexCare Rechargeable Sonic Toothbrush with Sanitizer
Philips Sonicare claims the #2 spot on amazon.com’s bestselling electric toothbrushes list. At more than double the price, it’s no wonder that this electric toothbrush (which offers more accessories than its less expensive top competitors) missed out on the top spot. Still, the FlexCare Rechargeable Sonic Toothbrush with Sanitizer is just shy of 300 reviews and offers a large selection of included accessories that can help save money in the long run. It’s no wonder that Philips is the second bestselling electric toothbrush on amazon.com.
Oral-B Triumph Professional Care 9400 Power Toothbrush
Coming in a close third to Sonicare’s top two spots, the Oral-B Triumph Professional Care 9400 is another bestselling electric toothbrush. It’s rated highly by consumers, has a price tag between the two better selling Sonicare models, and offers a good selection of reasonably priced accessories (some included with your purchase). If you prefer Oral-B to Sonicare, the Triumph remains one of 2009’s top electric toothbrushes.
Oral B Vitality Precision Clean Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush
The first inexpensive electric toothbrush to make the list, the Oral-B Vitality Precision Clean retails for right around $20. It plugs in, can be purchased at many retail stores as well as online, and still boasts the “high speed oscillating – rotating motion sweeps plaque away.” It’s no wonder that the Oral-B Vitality manages to claim the number four spot among amazon.com’s best selling toothbrushes.
Oral-B CrossAction Power Battery-Powered Toothbrush
Sneaking in with the last top 5 spot, the Oral-B Crossaction is an inexpensive alternative to the pricier electric toothbrushes that claimed the first four spots. It retails for less than $7 each, and is sold in a three-pack. It’s ideal for families, travelers, or those who want an electric toothbrush but not the commitment. In fact, at $7, they don’t retail for much more than a manual toothbrush, but still offer the added benefits of increased plaque removal.
