5.0 out of 5 stars Nine modes - great results, 24 July 2013
This review is from: Philips Sonicare HX9172/10 FlexCare Platinum Rechargeable Toothbrush with UV Sanitizer (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I was converted to electric toothbrushes some years ago and have had both Oral-B and Philips Sonicare in the past. The Oral-B ones had (don't know if this is still the case haven't had one in a while) a circular motion whereas the Philips ones have a massaging/vibrating one. The Sonicare model has always left my teeth and mouth feeling refreshed and clean so it has become my preferred brand. Our previous model was this one Philips Sonicare HX6902/02 FlexCare Rechargeable Toothbrush purchased in April 2011. It works fine but the rubberised material on the back of the handle has frayed and it has become unsightly and a bit uncomfortable in the hand. So this new slightly higher spec model was a timely opportunity.

It's well designed and the handle is no longer rubberised on the rear so I think it should last longer. The extra modes (3 pressure settings, 3 modes) on this one especially the whitening mode seem even more effective and it is a very comfortable and enjoyable toothbrush to use. The product details reckon that this is seven times more effective at plaque removal than ordinary brushing - the model above HX6902 was only twice as effective. I have to say that the claim feels well made.

This model also comes with the UV sanitiser which is a neat way of storing the toothbrush heads and presumably (there is no way of knowing this) does what Philips say in destroying bacteria on the toothbrush head. But if I was in the market to buy a new toothbrush I'm not sure I would shell out the extra money for the sanitiser. The toothbrush alone (I'm pretty sure it's got the same specification) from this package is, at the time of this review, about £40 cheaper Philips Sonicare FlexCare Platinum Rechargeable Toothbrush HX9112/02
