Which electric toothbrush tells you when brushing too hard?
Oral-B brushes with a pressure sensor In the Oral-B range, most brushes come with a sensor, including the brush we recommend as the best value electric toothbrush, the Oral-B Pro 2 2500.

How do I silence my electric toothbrush?
The easiest way to make an electric toothbrush quiet is to upgrade to a sonic toothbrush, as these oscillate much faster and hence, make less noise. An alternate method is to wrap the toothbrush in a washcloth or hand towel to muffle the sound.
How long should an electric toothbrush last?
The average life span of an electric toothbrush is around 5 years. Manufacturers normally offer a 2 year warranty should the brush fail sooner. But some brushes will last a lot longer — we know of people still using electric toothbrushes that are 10 years old.

Why does my electric toothbrush stop and start?
At the end of the 2 minute cleaning cycle, the motor in the brush pauses and restarts briefly three times. This is your signal that the 2 minutes of brushing time has been achieved. Normally at this point you would turn the toothbrush off, by holding the power button for 1-2 seconds.
Why does my electric toothbrush turn on by itself?
There could be a failed seal either at the button or at the top of your toothbrush that has allowed water to go in. It’s possible that the circuit board is wet from the ruined seal causing the button contacts to go on at random times. I’ve seen this happen with my sonicare toothbrush.

Can you hear an electric toothbrush?
But electric toothbrushes aren’t complicated. Inside the toothbrush are a rechargeable battery, the circuit, a gear, a cam, a motor, and the head attachment.

Brush head not attached properly Reattach the brush head. Make sure that the brush head is well placed and not loose or wobbly. A small gap between the handle and the brush head is normal. This is needed for vibration.
