So good we bought a second!,
This review is from: Philips Sonicare HX6972/10 FlexCare+ Rechargeable Toothbrush with UV Sanitiser (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We have used Braun Oral B electric toothbrushes quite happily for several years, one of which was their 'sonic' version. So we were a tad sceptical about whether the Philips HX6972 could actually give any real additional benefit.
Well, after several weeks trial, we have to say that the cleaning appears to be better and the 5(!)available modes cover every use that we could possibly need.For users new to the 'sonic' effect, it has the option of a 14 day progressive start up routine to allow you to get used to what is a different action to conventional electric toothbrushes.
Unit itself has a clean,attractive appearance, is comfortable to hold and is easily cleaned. Brushes (different sizes available) also easy to fit and Philips states the average brush life is 3 months.
As to the UV steriliser, well,I never knew that I needed one and I would suggest that it is down to each individual as to whether it is a 'must have' item. Does it work? Can't tell....but the overall unit is quite neat and the package (which also comes with travel charger and case) with the advanced toothbrush itself was less expensive than a standalone brush.
Would I buy one? Unequivocal yes...the Braun has been retired and we bought another HX6972 for junior. Can't recommend higher than that!
