If the only time you care about your oral health is before and after the dentist — no sweat, we get it. If you want to do minimum work for maximum reward (and spend less time on the receiving end of a scolding from your dental care provider) you need to invest in a reliable electric toothbrush. Not only can one greatly improve your oral health, it also makes it so much easier (and dare we say it, fun) to brush your teeth.

Luckily for your pearly whites, the Oral-B 1000 CrossAction Electric Toothbrush is on sale for $40, or $25 off at Walmart. That’s 39 percent off!

The electric toothbrush features an interchangeable brush head, which is designed with specialized angled bristles that can surround each tooth in a “cross action” motion for a better cleaning experience when compared to traditional manual brushes. It brushes with more power to break up plaque to prevent tooth decay and cavities, which means fewer visits to the dentist.

The Oral-B 1000 also features pressure sensors that alert you if you’re brushing too hard, while its built-in timer can help you brush for the dentist-recommended two minutes.

For only $40, this is an easy and powerful way to have cleaner teeth and a healthier smile.

Shoppers love this toothbrush, too. Here’s what a few had to say:

“I've used various versions of this Oral-B toothbrush for the past 20 years, because it was immediately obvious how much cleaner my teeth are vs normal manual toothbrushes,” wrote a delighted five-star Walmart reviewer. “I bought this one (the Oral-B ProfessionalCare 1000) because the battery on my previous model had died - it would no longer hold a charge. This happens eventually with all of them, but it takes several years... This toothbrush works great and is well worth the cost.”

This satisfied shopper added, “Excellent quality, easy to use electric toothbrush that lives up to the Oral B quality reputation. Excellent value too.”
