We're honing in on self-care – namely oral hygiene – with an incredible deal on this top-rated Oral-B Toothbrush.

Down from £219.99 to just £64.99, you can boost the health of your teeth and gums for a fraction of the top-rated toothbrush's usual price.

An amazing bargain like this Oral-B buy is unmissable. Not only are electric toothbrushes proven to be more effective than the manual kind, but they last for many years, so it'll end up saving you money in the long-term rather than constantly replacing cheaper throw-away styles.

In fact, there are five reasons that your old toothbrush, or toothbrush head, might need to be binned right now:

  1. If it has bristles that are splayed, bent, unusually stiff, or otherwise worn

  2. It smells bad

  3. Your teeth still feel fuzzy or unclean after brushing

  4. After an illness like a cold or flu

  5. If you drop your toothbrush on the floor or in the toilet

Why we rate it

The Oral-B Smart 6 6000N CrossAction Electric Toothbrush delivers a squeaky-clean smile every time.

The bluetooth communication allows the brush to connect with the Oral-B App to provide real-time brushing guidance through Smart Coaching, as well as feedback on what might improve your brushing routine.

Plus, the battery lasts more than two weeks with just one charge, and the brush comes with three replacement heads, to keep you going for a while.

It also comes with three toothbrush heads and a travel case, so it has everything you need.

The design of the CrossAction toothbrush head surrounds each tooth with bristles angled at 16 degrees, and the brush oscillates, rotates and pulsates to break up and remove up to 100% more plaque than a regular manual toothbrush.

The pressure sensor lights up if you brush too hard to prevent harmful over-brushing and there are five modes – Daily Clean, Gum Care, Sensitive, Whitening, and Deep Clean – as well as a timer to help ensure you brush for the dentist-recommended two minutes.

What the reviews say

It’s clear that people are happy to splash out on superior oral care and this bargain is not to be missed as shoppers have left over 14,000 glowing ratings.

One woman even admitted it had made her feel happy to clean her teeth again. So it's no surprise that another happy customer hailed this design a "definite upgrade" to an old and basic toothbrush they previously used; and a first-time electric toothbrush-user admitted she wished she'd invested years ago.

"50 shades cleaner" raved one reviewer, while another insisted it was "truly worth investing" in for whiter and cleaner teeth. "It's awesome"; a "major player"; "amazing", and "excellent" is just more of the praise heaped on the Oral-B Smart 6 6000N CrossAction Electric Toothbrush.
