There’s nothing quite as satisfying as leaving the dentist’s office with a nod of approval from your doc. One thing that has helped get me and keep me there was switching to an electric toothbrush. If you’re in the market for some cleaner, healthier teeth and gums, Amazon has answered the call by offering almost 50% off on one of the best oral hygiene tools in the biz that some reviewers say is “worth every penny”: Philips Sonicare Electric toothbrushes. Specifically, the Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 5300 is 45% off in Amazon’s Early Prime Day Sale, clocking in at just under $60 for a limited time.

This particular rechargeable model (the ProtectiveClean 5300) provides a customized brushing experience. In addition to the three cleaning modes (white, clean and gum care), it also has a pressure sensor to ensure you’re not harming your gums or overbrushing.

Coupled with the QuadPacer technology, which lets you know just the right amount of time you should spend cleaning each part of your mouth, the guesswork of oral hygiene is eliminated and you can be confident that you’re achieving the ideal clean. We can’t forget to mention the super convenient travel case for carrying your brush on the go. Its battery is claimed to last up to 14 days on a single charge, by the way.

“Fantastic electric toothbrush!” raves user Swede63. Great cleaning action at a great price. I feel like I’ve been to the dentist office for a cleaning every time I use this brush.”

Many Sonicare converts are pleased with their transitions from manual to electric cleaning. You can see their testimonies below, many of which mention happy dentists and improved gum and teeth health. Grab yourself one while the early Amazon Prime Day sale is still going on.

Read on for more promising reviews of the Phillips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 5300 electric toothbrush:

Fantastic electric toothbrush! Great cleaning action at a great price. I feel like I’ve been to the dentist office for a cleaning every time I use this brush. I really like timer function that prompts me to move from quadrant to quadrant and brush for two minutes. Brush pauses and emits a beep every 30 seconds and shuts off automatically after two minutes in the CLEAN setting. Two and a half minutes for the WHITENING setting and three minutes for the GUMS setting. Haven’t tried the latter two settings but I assume they have the same feel, just longer durations. Brush comes with a charging stand, but I’ve only charged it once initially and have been using it twice a day for a week without having to recharge. Mine also came with two extra brush heads. The sonic action is a little disconcerting at first and it sort of tickles if a touch the roof of my mouth with the brush. Can be a little messy if you don’t keep your mouth closed around the brush as much as possible. And you will drool a little when brushing for two minutes.” — Swede63

This is a repeat purchase in our house with 6 family members as my husband uses a bit too much pressure and can’t stop this, so his lasts about 2.5 years while I get 3+ out of mine. The battery life on this is fantastic and charges very fast if you forgot to put it on the charger. Love the more basic brush-head as it’s wider, but have used others with it as well. Easy to reach all parts of the mouth and the timer advises when it’s time to change sections. Overall really great product and still very happy my dentist got me onto these in 2017. I do not use the app, but it’s an option.” — Amazon Customer

This is easy to use and leaves my teeth feeling clean. It tells you to break your mouth down into quadrants, and then times you for each quadrant, so you just wiggle it around until the pause. It’s worth the price to keep your teeth!” — Dustin Harper

I was on the fence about an electric toothbrush for a really long time. Between thinking a manual was more effective and an electric was unwieldy, I put it off for years. I ended up ordering this on sale because I wanted a travel case. In the end, this was one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. I love the toothbrush and it’s not even a question that it cleans better than a manual. The travel case is a bit bulky but protects well. The extra heads are nice to have, but I haven’t needed to replace the original yet. I have had the toothbrush for almost 3 months and have only charged it once. I use it for the advised 2 minutes twice daily and it’s amazing how long the charge lasts. I can’t speak for its longevity, and it might eventually fail. But I plan on taking care of the lithium ion battery (you know, how you’re supposed to with all batteries). I’ll report back if the battery life starts to go, or if it the toothbrush dies.” — Knuckles

I’ve had other sonics and this one is by far the best. I didnt buy the higher end model to save a few bucks and this toothbrush is perfect for the price. the batterie will last long time and I love the 3 cleaning modes. They really do get my teeth alot whiter and cleaner than a regular toothbrush. Worth every penny.” — Gina Hall
