The question is then, which makes the best electric toothbrush, Sonicare or Oral-B?

There is no simple answer to this question.  Both have their pros and cons and will appeal to some more than others.

In this guide, I present as much information as possible for you to become better informed on which brand is more suited to you and why. Find Oral b or sonicare with timer at


Most Oral-B and Sonicare brushes have timers built in. These come in two forms, a timer that tells you when to change quadrants in the mouth and a timer that tells you the clean is over.

A normal clean lasts for 2 minutes and you should spend 30 seconds cleaning each of the 4 quadrants of the mouth.  Most Oral-B and Sonicare brushes have both timers built in.  The 30 second pacer is a pause in the brush head motion that in turn changes the sound emitted from the brush.

The 2 minute timer on Oral-B is a longer/different pause pattern whereas with Sonicare the brush usually automatically turns off. Nether are essential, but both go a long way in making sure you clean your teeth for the right amount of time.
