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 two 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 per cent 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
Three 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.

Two 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.

Three Brushing Modes

Philips Sonicare FlexCare has three 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.
