  • When it comes to coronavirus essentials, everyone knows you need plenty of FDA-authorized KN95 masks, Purell hand sanitizer, and Clorox wipes.
  • There’s one more must-have purchase you should make though, and not everyone realizes how important it really is.
  • You absolutely need a good electric toothbrush so you can avoid having to go to the dentist during the pandemic, and Amazon is running an awesome one-day sale that you need to check out.

What are the first things you think of when you think about coronavirus pandemic essentials? FDA-authorized KN95 face masks like Nan Qi Xing KN95 masks that NIOSH says work just as well as 3M N95 masks are probably at the top of the list, and Purell hand sanitizer likely isn’t far behind. And needless to say, you’ve got to have things like Clorox wipes, Lysol spray, toilet paper, paper towel rolls, and so on.

But there’s one more item that most people likely don’t think of as a pandemic essential despite the fact that it’s absolutely crucial: An electric toothbrush. After all, the last thing you want is to have to go to the dentist where it’s obviously impossible for you to wear a face mask while you’re being worked on.

Philips Sonicare toothbrushes are generally quite expensive, especially if you want the best of the best. Despite deep Amazon discounts right now, models like the Philips Sonicare ExpertClean 7500 Bluetooth Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush and the DiamondClean Smart 9300 Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush are still well over $100 each. Even if you want a bare-bones model, you’re still going to spend at least $50 on something like the ProtectiveClean 4100 Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush (though it’s down to $39.95 today on Amazon). On Thursday, however, there’s another great option that you need to check out.
