Product Description

Product Description

Take care of your mouth--your body will thank you
One of the first things people notice about a person is their smile. That’s one reason it’s important to look after your teeth and gums--you only get one chance to make a first impression. But brushing your teeth also gives you a healthy mouth, and that can make an impression that’s much more important than the first: a healthy body.

Research shows that your oral health can significantly contribute to your overall health, especially the health of your gums. Gum disease has been linked to a variety of conditions that affect the entire body. One recent study showed that bacterial by-products present in diseased gums can damage the heart once they enter the bloodstream. In fact, there is growing research that says people with severe gum disease have a significantly greater risk of stroke or heart attack. We’re also seeing studies that show a link between gum disease and diabetes. People with diabetes are more susceptible to gum disease. In turn, gum disease makes diabetes harder to control. It’s a harmful cycle that’s centred in the mouth.

And what if there is more than one mouth to worry about? Most pregnant women have heightened oral care issues, and certain pregnant women with severe gum disease are more likely to deliver a preterm, low birth weight baby. This risk can be significantly reduced, however, by treatment before the third trimester.

Philips Sonicare HX6972 electric toothbrush twin pack

From the makers of the number one recommended power toothbrush brand by dental professionals, Philips Sonicare introduces the FlexCare rechargeable sonic toothbrush, the most advanced power toothbrush ever. Featuring new innovative technology, FlexCare removes more plaque than a manual toothbrush and even Sonicare Elite. The integrated ultraviolet (UV) sanitiser removes up to 99% of bacteria* on your toothbrush.

The Philips Sonicare brand is not only 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 power 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. Philips Sonicare is the number one sonic toothbrush brand recommended by dental professionals worldwide.

FlexCare--five brushing modes

The Philips FlexCare sonic toothbrush’s 31,000 brush strokes per minute guarantee effective and efficient oral care. Built for your individual oral care needs, FlexCare offers five different brushing modes to enhance your brushing experience. It comes with a standard bathroom-compatible two-pin plug. The toothbrush can also be plugged into a standard three-pin wall socket with a converter (converter not included).

Three flexible brushing modes
(i) Clean: for maximum cleaning efficacy
(ii) Gum care: improves gum health
(iii) Refresh: perfect for a quick freshen-up
(iv) Sensitive: extra-gentle on sensitive teeth
(v) Massage: to stimulate gums with an invigorating and pulsing motion
3 Flexible brushing modes

Patented sonic technology
Dynamic cleaning action drives fluid between teeth and along the gumline.

Illuminated display
When on, unique backlighting indicates selected mode. When off, display becomes invisible, for a clean look.

Three week battery life
Lasts three weeks between charges--ideal for travel.

Smart chrome front panel

The Philips HX6972 sonic toothbrush’s chrome front panel gives it a remarkably unique and eye-catching look. Its luxury soft travel case and three additional colour code rings make it a unique and exciting brushing experience.
Sonicare FlexCare features

ProResults brush head--designed for better fit

The Philips HX6972 sonic toothbrush is clinically proven to remove significantly more plaque than Sonicare Elite and manual toothbrushes. It is specially designed for a better fit with your mouth. The HX6972 brush head's contour fit, wider bristle range and broader sweeping motion provide better tooth coverage. It enables you to reach those contours of your mouth and clean the areas which others can't, and provides better plaque removal and a comfort-enhanced brushing experience.

Two contoured brush heads
The contoured brush head fits along the gumline to gently clean and massage gums. The Philips HX6972 comes with two contoured brush heads: 'standard' is ideal for complete cleaning while 'compact' provides precision cleaning.

Philips Quadpacer and Smartimer® technology
The Philips Sonicare HX6972 toothbrush comes with a Smartimer, which encourages two-minute brushing as recommended by dental professionals. The Smartimer automatically stops your Sonicare toothbrush after the dentist-recommended brushing time of two minutes has elapsed. If you switch the toothbrush off at any time during the brushing cycle, for instance to rinse or apply more toothpaste, the Smartimer interrupts its timing and resumes where it left off when you switch the appliance back on again.

Although a two-minute brushing session is recommended for optimal results, you can always stop or restart the toothbrush at any time by pressing the power button. When the handle is placed in the charger, the Smartimer automatically resets to ensure a complete two-minute brushing cycle the next time you use it. The Smartimer also resets itself if you stop your Sonicare toothbrush for more than 45 seconds.

Philips Quadpacer® 30-second interval timer
The Philips HX6972 Quadpacer feature beeps at 30-second intervals during the two-minute brushing period, telling you when to move the toothbrush to the next section, thus making sure that you brush all sections of your mouth evenly and thoroughly. The Quadpacer takes the guesswork out of when to move the brush from the outside of the teeth to the inside, and from the upper teeth to the lower teeth.

Deluxe recharge gauge
The deluxe recharge gauge prompts about the charging left in the the electric brush.

Worldwide plug
This toothbrush comes with a worldwide two-pin plug for use in a standard bathroom two-pin socket. It can also be used in a three-pin wall socket via a converter. Converter not included.

Multi-voltage compact travel charger
The toothbrush comes with a multi-voltage compact travel charger to save you from hassle while travelling, so you can enjoy FlexCare while you're on the go.
Smart Timmer
Two Contour Brush
Smart Timmer
All-in-one sanitising, charging and storing solution
The Philips HX6972 rechargeable sonic toothbrush comes as an all-in-one UV sanitising, charging and storing solution. It is so convenient to carry anywhere and you can enjoy 20 two-minute brushings from fully charged. The multi-voltage charger and deluxe soft travel case give you peace of mind to carry it anywhere in the world. The deluxe recharge gauge helps track the battery charge by showing a light signal. The green light level tracks battery charge and the yellow light signals when to recharge.

Philips Sonicare UV sanitiser

Behind those pearly whites, the mouth harbours hundreds of different types of micro-organisms (germs), some of which are transferred to a toothbrush during use. Micro-organisms in the bathroom or household environment may also collect on a toothbrush. So how can you be comfortable that your toothbrush heads are as clean as can be? Philips Sonicare, the number one sonic toothbrush brand recommended by dental professionals worldwide, introduces the Philips Sonicare UV sanitiser, designed to sanitise Philips Sonicare and other leading rechargeable toothbrush heads.

Why Philips Sonicare UV sanitiser?

The Philips Sonicare UV sanitiser safeguards against potentially harmful germs on the toothbrush by using ultraviolet (UV) clean technology, similar to that used in hospitals, to alter the DNA of germs that may be residing on a toothbrush, preventing germs from reproducing and thereby rendering them ineffective. As a result, the Philips Sonicare UV sanitiser helps eliminate germs for a clean, hygienic brush head in one simple sanitisation cycle. Conveniently, the sanitiser unit holds two brush heads, and multiple family members may clean their brush heads in one go, without any cross-contamination.

How to use the Philips Sonicare UV sanitiser

The Philips Sonicare UV sanitiser is simple to use and has a built-in automatic shut-off for a hygienic and chemical-free sanitisation process. Users place one or two rechargeable toothbrush heads inside the unit, close the door and push the button. It is that simple. A blue light will indicate that the product is on and working. Once the sanitisation cycle has begun, the sanitiser will run for 10 minutes, and will automatically shut off when the cycle is complete, leaving fully sanitised brush heads ready for their next use. The unit may also serve as a storage device until the next time the brush is used.

Sanitise your brush head daily with Philips UV clean technology

Frequency of sanitisation is at the user’s discretion, but it can be done as often as you brush to be sure that your toothbrush head is sanitised before each use.

UV Sanitiser
Philips UV Sanitiser How do I sanitise a Sonicare brush head?
  • After brushing, rinse the brush head and shake off excess water.
  • Place your finger in the door recess on the right-hand side of the sanitiser and pull open the door.
  • Place the brush heads directly on the drip tray with the bristles facing the UV light bulb.
UV clean technology

Specially engineered Philips UV sanitising technology helps kill germs on brush heads.

All-round clean

All-round clean reflection for optimal results. The reflector distributes sanitising light around entire top of the brush head for optimal results.

One touch

It is so simple to use. A simple push of the button safeguards against germs.

Auto shut-off

You don't need to tie up yourself with the sanitising cycle. It just automatically turns off after 10 minutes when the UV clean cycle is complete.

Hygienic storage

Hygienic storage for your brush head.

Compatible design

The Philips UV sanitiser fits all leading rechargeable brush heads.

Why Philips Sonicare?
  • The contact of Sonicare’s specially-designed soft bristles, supported by unique, dynamic fluid forces, has a thorough cleaning effect, even in hard-to-reach areas.
  • Sonicare gives a uniquely stimulating clean feel that encourages you to brush for almost two times longer than with a manual toothbrush.
  • Sonicare is clinically proven to reduce plaque bacteria in hard-to-reach areas.
  • Sonicare is clinically proven to improve gum health, reduce gingivitis and help shrink periodontal pockets.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    I was never, in any form, a brand snob, and would raise my eyebrow high and proud at people hell bent on spending an additional £20 or more on a product just for a label.


    Back in the day I used to use an electric toothbrush which cost less than £20 and did the job very nicely thank you very much.
    I upgraded via Vine to an Omron 548 (varying from £45-90) - now it might sound ungrateful but I was a little dissapointed, and if Id bought it I wouldve contemplated returning it, as it was absolutely no better (in some respects worse) than my old one.

    This Philips one however is exceptional.

    The brush head (comes with two sizes) is remarkably comfortable - the larger one feels like its cleaning 2 or 3 teeth at once, very thoroughly. The "clean feel" is just ok first time - but from the third or fourth use onwards feels honestly fantastic. Whether thats because its acheived a much deeper clean over time or because Im getting used to it, Im not sure, but my mouth felt really fresh afterwards, my teeth are - definitely - brighter and lighter (which horrified me as much as it thrilled me - I always thought my teeth were pretty white. Seems not) and they stay feeling cleaner for longer - now, for instance, its been 14 hours since I brushed my teeth and they still feel squeeky clean even though Ive had countless cups of coffee, a bar of dairy milk and two full meals since then. This cant just be down to the toothpaste, because Ive used the same brand now for months (Beverly Hills Formula in case you were wondering)
    It feels like it cleans in all the interdental areas, and my tongue and gums feel somehow "lighter"... I dont really know how to explain that, but basically my whole mouth feels like its had a really high class valeting.

    Like all Philips products This Toothbrush and station is Very well made and has a quality feel to it, (designed and made by Philips medical devision i'm guessing, who also make the MRI scanners).

    Firstly as to what you get in the box:

    1 x Electric Toothbrush
    2 x ProResults brush heads (mini + Standard)
    1 x UV Brush Head Sanitiser
    1 x Travel Charger
    2 x Hygienic travel caps (that cover the heads of the brush heads)
    1 x Hard travel case

    Firstly about the Toothbrush, it is well weighted and features two buttons on the front, an ON/OFF button and a slimline button below that you press to select which mode you want to use...The modes range from: CLEAN (standard use)....Gum care, refresh, Sensitive, Massage...and i'm sure you can work out what which is for!

    Unlike other toothbrushes this one vibrates and uses ultrasonic pulses against your teeth to gently BUT effectively dislodge food between your teeth and remove plaque from you teeth. It does it very well and over a period of a week use you can notice the difference! Teeth DO appear whiter and cleaner than they were when i used my old "oral B" Pro from Braun. on the standard setting you get 30 seconds or there about in each quarter of your mouth before it vibrates irregularly, telling you to move onto the next section (just as i guide). The brush heads are contoured which also help remove more plaque that other brushes around the gum line which is the most prone place so i hear.

    On to the sanitizer, and its a closed unit that only operates when the door is closed, it works by placing your brush heads inside, closing the door and pressing the button on the top...

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    The Sonicare comes in several pieces, each of which is worth discussing separately. There are the toothbrush heads, the toothbrush handle, two charging stations, and a travel case.

    There are two heads provided, one of a standard size, and the other slightly smaller, presumably to allow for `precision' cleaning. The bristles are tightly packed, and a rather pleasant blue-green colour, presumably to indicate brush-wear. I believe these are standard Philips toothbrush heads, but have yet to need to replace them in order to confirm this.

    The first, `travel' charger is similar to a standard charger on other sonic/electric toothbrushes. A two pin lead which goes into a plastic base, with a prong on which to set the toothbrush. Unfortunately, I can't confirm the `multi-voltage' claim, though I didn't note any way to change the accepted voltage. Still, it's a perfectly good toothbrush charger, if not particularly exceptional.

    The second charger is rather larger and more elaborate. It contains the standard prong for charging the toothbrush, and then a small cabinet type installation. Inside this cabinet is space for the appropriately sized toothbrush, and a bulb which emits UV light. The principle, apparently, is that the user should brush their teeth, then put the toothbrush head into the `UV Chamber', where the lightbulb will then sterilise the brush head of any nasty bacteria lurking there.

    Whilst I quite like the wider, more stable base, it's a bit of an issue if you're used to charging your toothbrush on the edge of the sink; the broader platform will necessitate charging elsewhere. The UV bulb appeals to my inner gadget-nerd, but feels a bit gimmicky. People have somehow survived up until now with bacteria on their toothbrushes.
