Philips Sonicare FlexCare Platinum HX9172 Rechargeable Toothbrush with UV Sanitiser

Philips Sonicare
Why choose Sonicare?

Taking good care of your teeth and mouth is essential, because your oral health can directly affect your overall health. While it doesn't mean you should say goodbye to the dentist's chair forever, an effective daily routine, using a good toothbrush, such as a Sonicare, will help. Philips Sonicare brushes provide up to 100% better plaque removal in hard-to-reach areas versus a manual, thanks to the patented sonic technology. This delivers a gentle and dynamic cleaning action that drives fluid deep between teeth and along the gum-line to help prevent the development of gum disease and improve gum health in just two weeks.

Recommended by dental professionals worldwide

The Philips Sonicare brand is a leader in oral health care, but is also backed by more than 140 publications and abstracts representing clinical and laboratory studies conducted at more than 40 universities and research institutes worldwide. Philips Sonicare electric toothbrushes are proven to promote and improve oral health, from reducing plaque build-up to improving overall gum health. They have also demonstrated the ability to increase patient compliance to oral health and hygiene regimens between dental visits. Over 22 million users worldwide testify to the great experience of using Philips Sonicare toothbrushes. Philips Sonicare is recommended by dental professionals worldwide.

Product Features

Philips Sonicare
Dynamic sonic cleaning action

Sonicare’s dynamic cleaning action drives fluid between the teeth, effectively cleaning every surface, even between the teeth and along the gumline, for a difference you can see and feel.

Philips Sonicare
Naturally whiter teeth

Daily use of the White mode can help you achieve teeth that are 2 shades whiter in just 2 weeks. Proven to remove coffee, tea, tobacco and red wine stains.

Philips Sonicare
Gum health

Most adults suffer from gum disease at some point in their lives. Thankfully, FlexCare is clinically proven to improve gum health in just two weeks. Its Gum Care mode targets and cleans the gum line, removing plaque while stimulating gums.

Philips Sonicare
Clinically proven safe and gentle

Your Sonicare is safe to use on: braces (brush heads wear out sooner when used on braces), dental restorations (fillings, crowns, veneers) and periodontal pockets.

Philips Sonicare
UV sanitiser

The integrated ultraviolet (UV) sanitiser removes up to 99% of bacteria* on your toothbrush. The UV sanitiser safeguards against potentially harmful germs by using ultraviolet (UV) clean technology, similar to that used in hospitals. The sanitiser unit can clean two brush heads at the same time, and it takes just 10 minutes for the heads to be completely sanitised. The unit may also serve as a storage device until the next time the brush is used.

Philips Sonicare
2-minute timer

2-minute timer automatically tracks brushing time, ensuring recommended brushing regime is followed and turns the toothbrush off when brushing is complete.

Philips Sonicare
Quadpacer interval timer

30 seconds interval timer indicates when you have completed each quadrant of your mouth and signals for you to move on, resulting in more consistent cleaning throughout your mouth.

Philips Sonicare
Easy-start programme

Gently increases power over the first 14 uses to ease into the Sonicare experience.

Philips Sonicare
Intuitive pressure sensor

Handle gently vibrates when too much pressure is applied to reduce over brushing and helps user to adopt proper brushing technique.

Philips Sonicare
Long battery life

3 weeks of use on a single full charge or 42 x 2-minute brushings.

Philips Sonicare
3 Intensity settings

FlexCare Platinum lets you choose from three intensity settings — Low, Medium or High — to create a brushing experience that’s tailored to you.

Distinct brush heads

InterCare brush head with distinct bristle configuration - proven to remove up to 6 x more plaque between the teeth and improve gum health in just 2 weeks.

2 sizes brush heads available
Philips Sonicare

1. Standard brush head: For focused cleaning in areas of special need.

2. Mini brush head: For orthodontic patients and those with smaller mouths.

Philips Sonicare
Reminder bristles

Reminder bristles gradually fade, indicating when it's time to replace brush heads.

3 brushing modes

Philips Sonicare FlexCare has 3 brushing modes, to allow consumers to tailor their brushing experience to their own needs as well as their dental professional's advice. The brush modes range from:

  1. Clean - the standard mode for a whole mouth clean
  2. White - removes surface stains to whiten teeth
  3. Gum Care - gently stimulates and massages gums
Important information

In order to get the most out of your Sonicare’s battery life, it is essential that you charge it for 24 hours before first use.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've used electric toothbrushes for the last decade but this is my first sonic toothbrush.

After years of using Braun/Oral-Bpower brushes with rotating heads, this was a completely different experience. This Philips Sonicare brush has a conventional-shaped but small brush head and produces a light sensation of 'vibrations' as each brush bristle spins independently (rather than the toothbrush head itself spinning). It also involves a slightly different brushing technique: the 'spinning head' brushes are held to the teeth one at a time while the teeth are brushed but the Sonicare involves the user gently and effortlessly brushing from side to side so the longer bristles penetrate between the teeth.

Without a doubt, it is certainly effective. It tickled slightly for the first few uses until I became used to it and my teeth and gums definitely felt clean, polished and tingly after use.

It's a very easy brush to use - simply hold it like a manual toothbrush and brush the teeth very gently from side to side. The longer bristles reach inbetween teeth very effectively, loosen plaque and blast it away. It's a very gentle method which doesn't involve any aggressive or heavy-duty brushing and I found it more gentle than a rotary brush. The ergonomic shape is very good - the long--stemmed small, slim brush head easily finds hard to reach areas making it very comfortable even for a smaller mouth and no gag-reflex when reaching deep into the back of the mouth.

Just a few days before testing this brush, I had dental surgery which also involved cutting into my gum hence this part of my mouth was very sensitive but the brush is designed to accommodate sensitive patches thanks to its three pressure settings.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Note - I received this free as part of the Amazon Vine program - I am reviewing it based on value for money, quality and so on - I am therefore not applying buyer's remorse or bias!

This isn't actually the top end unit Philips make (that's the Diamond brush) however it's pretty high up there.
If you are determined to have all the features, and the price doesn't matter, buy it - it an excellent brush and all the bits work together.

Still reading? Okay - the problem with this unit is that the cheaper brushes - without the UV - are very very good, and much cheaper. This unit adds a revised handset and the UV lamp. I'll cover both.

As a general comment Sonicare brushes are excellent. I used Oral-B for years, then changed to these and wouldn't go back. Cleaner teeth, amazing battery life - these are excellent tooth brushes.

This brush unit however seems a bit... coarse. The finish is rougher than the soft touch models I've had previously and the rollstop has sharper edges. Nit-picking, sure. It's also seems MUCH more powerful (and noisier) than the other brushes - but I have no idea why. It has various modes, none of which I suspect I'll use (as this is how it's gone with my current multi-mode brush).

The UV works - but I can't help question the point of it. I've brushed my teeth for 30+ years without UV sanitisation. I'm still alive, never been ill, nor ever had a green toothbrush - so what's the point, other than it looks pretty when it's on? I don't think it's worth the money, especially as it's another thing to clean and replace when the bulb goes (UV loses effectiveness over time).

Verified Purchase
I'm not sure the UV sanitiser serves any purpose whatsoever, but I purchased it on a Black Friday deal and it comes with the normal charger as well, so it didn't matter.

I don't notice ANY difference to the feel of my teeth from my previous Sonicare platinum brush, but it's a nice lightweight feel toothbrush and provides the same decent clean I've come to expect from Philips Sonicare brushes. My husband, however, hates his, and doesn't think his teeth feel as clean. It does an odd shuddery thing at the start and every thirty seconds, rather than the pause we're used to, and it doesn't feel as strong or powerful as the 6902s we had before.

It's nice to have a new brush, but I wouldn't waste money and I'd go for the cheaper FlexCare instead of this Platinum as there is absolutely no difference in cleanliness achieved.

Really good toothbrush except after 2years ( just out if warranty ) it decides to stop working... This isn't a cheap brush so when I contacted Philips they said there is nothing they can do ...ie no replacement battery ... I just had to get a new one ! I thought it would last a lot longer than two years ! Grrrr very annoying !! It won't be a Philips one !

I've only just bought mine, so can't really comment much on functionality / how good it is (hence only 4 stars), however, one thing that I was unsure about when buying this was that the charging unit seemed rather bulky for travel.
When I opened mine, I found that in addition to the main stand charger and anti bacterial bit, it also came with a simple 2-pin base charger, which is comfortably small enough to travel with.
