Think it’s too late to score a jaw-dropping gift in time for Christmas — and get it at a steal? Not with Amazon on the case! The retailer never ceases to amaze me, and today they’ve given us all a major reason to smile.

The best-selling Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4100 Electric Toothbrush, which has more than 38,000 rave reviews and an impressive 4.7 star rating, will get to you in time for Christmas if you snap it up today on Amazon. Better yet, you save $35 on this lean, mean, teeth-cleaning machine that’s typically $70 — yep, that means it’s half price!

If you need one more gift, a Philips Sonicare toothbrush is really a no-brainer. First of all it’s suitable for anyone, and that includes you (nothing wrong with a little self-care in the new year). Secondly, studies show that electric toothbrushes are more effective at removing plaque and preventing gum disease — even the National Institutes of Health says so.

And of all electric toothbrush brands out there, Philips Sonicare is the one most recommended by dentists. In fact, brushing with the Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4100 Electric Toothbrush is truly like going to the dental hygienist for a cleaning every single day. You know that silky smooth feeling when you run your tongue across your teeth after a professional deep-clean? That, but on demand.

This Philips Sonicare model has me particularly intrigued. It doesn’t just remove more plaque than a manual toothbrush — it removes seven times more plaque. The device has a two-minute timer, which lets you know you’re brushing according to the American Dental Association’s recommendations. Studies show that people who brush for two minutes remove 41 percent of plaque — compare that to folks who brush for one minute and remove 27 percent of plaque.

The Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4100 electric toothbrush also has a pressure sensor that lets you know when you’re brushing too hard, a feature that reminds you it’s time to replace the brush head and a battery indicator that lets you know it’s time to recharge — but the battery lasts 14 days!

So many features, so little money. I can hardly believe Amazon is selling this little powerhouse for half off, or just $35 — and you get it by Christmas. Seriously, what a score. It’s even a handsome little devil sitting on your bathroom vanity.

Let’s check in with those 38,000 customers who are absolutely in love with their Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4100 electric toothbrushes.

“I've used Sonicare brushes for 10 years, and this one is the best of the lot for a budget price. You can pay 4 times as much and get the bells and whistles, but if your main aim is to clean your teeth, this brush does it well,” is how one fan summed it up.

“I am absolutely pleased! my back teeth have never felt cleaner after brushing, they feel like they do at the dentist all around. My teeth have also gotten whiter,” wrote another thrilled customer.

“My dentist highly recommends Sonicare,” wrote an experienced shopper. “This is my third Sonicare toothbrush in 20 years and by far the best one yet... The smaller brush head does a great job cleaning each tooth like a dental hygienist would and goes around the corners inside as well. My mouth has never felt cleaner.”

Score the Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4100 electric toothbrushes for someone you love right now — and a deeply discounted price you’ll adore, too.
