On top of refreshing our wardrobe and switching up our skincare routines, we also replace our toothbrushes every season. Why? Well, Dr. Tina Saw, a dentist and founder of Oral Genome, gave us the real tea about holding onto your old toothbrush for more than three months. Here's the deal: Rather than cleaning your teeth and gums, an older toothbrush actually transfers harmful bacteria to them. Not a good look, are we right? Which is why we're springing for Best Buy's day of the deal on the best-selling Philips Sonicare 2 electric toothbrush.
Until midnight, you can scoop up one for yourself—and maybe one for your partner and teen—for $30 (on sale from $50). The toothbrush features patented sonic technology that emits up to 31,000 brush strokes between teeth and along the gumline per minute to help gently remove plaque (up to six times more than a manual toothbrush, btw). Several customers have confirmed this in the review section. One writes, "Excellent electric toothbrush. Can’t ask for anything better. Cleans really well. Stays charged for a very long time." Yes, it's chargeable, so you will have to plug it in every once in a while, but the top-tier clean you'll get makes the extra step so worth it.
The Sonicare 2 also has a smart timer that lets you know when you've brushed for at least two minutes (which dentists recommend). And within the first 14 brushes, it will gradually increase power to ease you into the switch from your old toothbrush. So what we're hearing is you really can't go wrong.
Ready for that superior clean? You know what to do.
