Must-Have Electric Toothbrush Accessories

When my husband and I first got married, he tried to convince me to switch to an electric toothbrush right off the bat. A convert himself, he insisted that once I tried an electric toothbrush, I’d never go back. He’s right, and now with two kids in the house, we’ve turned into an electric toothbrush loving family.

If you’ve made the decision to ditch your old toothbrush and move to an electric toothbrush, and done the same for your entire family, you’ll want to stock your medicine cabinet with these must-have electric toothbrush accessories.

A Set of Rechargeable Batteries

A Set of Rechargeable Batteries

Battery-powered electric toothbrushes are wonderful for their ease, portability, and the power that they offer for a lighter price tag. However, batteries can get pricey, so if you opt for a battery-powered toothbrush, you should invest in a set of rechargeable batteries. While the upfront investment for this accessory may seem large, it will help you save in the long run.

Extra Toothbrush Head(s)

You’ll always want to have an extra head for your toothbrush on hand in case of an emergency. You never know when your child, or dog, may get a hold of yours and you don’t want to be caught without a spare. Popular electric toothbrushes are available in this website and you can find additional toothbrush heads there, too. Be sure to purchase the right brand/model electric toothbrush refills and save yourself the hassle of returns.

Electric Toothbrush Sanitizer

While the verdict is still out on the effectiveness of the electric toothbrush sanitizer, there’s certainly no harm in keeping on one hand. If you own the uSmile Pro, for example. you could spend an additional $30 on the UV Sanitizer, which offers hygienic storage and UV cleaning for your electric toothbrush. With both storage and cleaning potential, these items may certainly be worth the investment, especially if your whole family uses electric toothbrushes.

Electric Toothbrush Storage

If you are worried about germs, but don’t want to invest in the electric toothbrush sanitizer, another must-have accessory is electric toothbrush storage. For children, invest in a fun, covered toothbrush holder, like the Flipper Animal World Toothbrush Holder. For adults, any toothbrush head cover should do.

Toothpaste and Dental Floss

Toothpaste and Dental Floss

The most important electric toothbrush accessories are, in fact, the most obvious. An electric toothbrush is pointless without a toothpaste geared towards your unique needs (whitening, plaque, sensitivity, etc) and dental floss, both with the ADA Seal of Approval.
