Oral health is something that many Canadians take pride in, with 73 per cent of of us brushing twice or more daily, according to a 2017 study published by the Canadian Dental Association.

While basic toothbrushes can certainly get the job done, sometimes you need a deeper clean that manual brushes just can’t compete with. While top of the line devices are great for that clean feeling, they’re not always great for the wallet, with prices that can be upwards of $100 for a single toothbrush.

Luckily, there are some affordable options on the market that perform just as well as their pricey competitors, and have the support of thousands of happy customers to boot.

The details

The Landwind Rechargeable Sonic Electric Toothbrush is one top-rated electric toothbrush that features sonic technology to clean and whiten teeth, all at a fraction of the cost of other similar toothbrushes. It retails for just $40, and is packed with extra features that guarantee a cleaner and brighter smile.

This toothbrush provides customized dental hygiene with five modes for cleaning that caters to different teeth and gum types, ranging from sensitive to those looking for a deep clean. A built-in two minute timer keeps you on track, and encourages you to spend the recommended two minutes brushing every time.

Sonic technology helps remove seven times more plaque and stains, and improves cleaning efficiency by 150 times compared to a regular manual toothbrush. Each kit comes with two types of brush heads to customize your experience - one with comfort bristles that effectively cleans plaque and stains, and one with professional bristles to target teeth and gaps.

Since it’s a rechargeable, battery-operated toothbrush, a single charge is meant to last 100 days of twice-daily usage. As an added bonus, it even comes in different colours like black, blue or pink.

What customers are saying

With a respectable 4.1 star rating from more than 1,200 Amazon reviews, shoppers have called this toothbrush a “great buy” for the value, and deemed it just as effective as others on the market.

“This electric toothbrush is surprisingly high quality,” admitted one reviewer. “I had bought Philips Sonicare from Costco, but the brush head is too expensive to replace, so I bought a new set from Landwind. I have to say the toothbrush is made with high quality material, it’s very quiet, and the results are no different than the big brand like Philips. It is a great buy!”

“So far this toothbrush works very well, especially considering the good pricing,” added another. “I've had dental issues and have used many different products, but this electric toothbrush makes my teeth, gums, and mouth feel clean and refreshed.”

Some reviewers have noted that the brush heads are on the medium to stiff side, so if you’re used to using soft bristles, you may have some time adjusting to the ones included with this brush. Luckily, if that’s the case, other reviewers have shared that replacements brush heads from other brands are also a good fit for the Landwind brush.

“Super cheap, work great and last a long time. Absolutely no reason to not switch to these if you have one of the compatible brushes,” reads one review.

Final verdict

If you’re on the hunt for an affordable yet effective toothbrush that offers deep cleaning capabilities, then the Landwind Rechargeable Sonic Electric Toothbrush is certainly one to consider. Its versatile settings and compatibility with other electric toothbrushes make it a great choice for a wide range of users, but it may just take some getting used to at first.
