(Pocket-lint) - If you like oral hygiene as much as you like saving money, well, you're in luck - Oral-B's Black Friday savings have landed.

Electric toothbrushes are one of the few essential Black Friday items to consider. While it's a hard purchase to justify any other time in the year, the devilish savings on offer during November act as a great get-out when somebody questions why you dropped a three-figure sum on one. 

Save £290 on the Oral-B Special Edition iO8 - now £159.99

Luckily, Oral-B has gone positively berserk with this year's offerings, starting with the high-end iO8. The price has been slashed by 60%, bringing it down from the, frankly, ludicrous asking price of £449 to a very-reasonable £159.99 on Amazon UK. For those serious about keeping their teeth in top shape, this is obviously the one to consider.

Oral-B claims the iO Series 8 can provide a clean that rids your teeth of six times more plaque than a manual clean, using a frictionless magnetic drive to distribute energy into every bristle. There's also an interactive display to let you cycle through different brushing features, cleaning modes and welcome greetings. Naturally, it's compatible with the Oral-B app, too, letting you get a 3D graphic of your cleaning sessions - or whatever you call them.

If you're after something a little more affordable, you're also covered. In fact, you can save even more on the Genius 9000, with Amazon UK offering the mid-level electric brush for £145, down from £299.
