Don’t be fooled into spending much more for higher-end Sonicare models. The more expensive versions only add features you will never use that don’t remove any more plaque than this basic one. One mode, small charger, simple, effective, awesome. It’s got the quadrant timer and pressure warning, which is really all you need. Same frequency vibrations as the top of the line, just not different modes which don’t do anything magical and nobody ever uses. Only gripe, which applies to every model I’ve used, is the black gunk that accumulates between the brush-head and the handle. Mold? Bacteria? The last thing I want in my toothbrush. You can clean it out, but I wish it could be designed away. Anyhow, this basic model is really as good as anything you can buy, at a terrific price.
I wish I could give this 10 stars! I cannot say enough about how much I love this! Best money I ever spent!! It is absolutely amazing! My teeth have never felt so clean. I went to the dentist after several years of being terrified and had some pretty bad gum disease. I was scheduled for a deep clean the following week. I got this toothbrush and in less than a week the dental hygienist saw a huge improvement! I noticed a difference in the color of my teeth after one day! I'm seriously obsessed now and use it 3-4 times a day. You will not regret buying this!
I bought this toothbrush because I felt like a normal toothbrush was no longer making my teeth white. I used an electric Oral-B toothbrush in the past and liked it, but this one is a different animal. There aren't any spinning heads. This works by vibrating so fast that it basically buffs your teeth while blasting water and toothpaste in places it normally wouldn't go without a water pick. I combined my Philips toothbrush with Crest Brilliance toothpaste and did notice a big difference very quickly. My only complaint is that it makes a huge mess of my bathroom mirror. The toothbrush blasts water so hard that it flies out of my mouth and onto the wall/mirror/sink. But to me the effectiveness is worth it. The battery life is also fantastic.
