Sonicare® Toothbrushes: A Better Way to Fight Plaque

Sonicare®  -- A Sonicare toothbrush empowers you to fight plaque.

The Sonicare power toothbrush may not be the greatest invention since sliced bread; but it's a close second in the minds of many dentists. Since introducing the world's first "sonic" toothbrush in the 1980s, Sonicare has empowered countless people to dramatically improve the quality of their oral hygiene.  Brushing teeth with a Philips Sonicare toothbrush takes daily dental care to a whole new level.

What sets Sonicare apart is that its toothbrushes use patented fluid dynamics technology to remove the hard-to-reach dental plaque that is impervious to manual and oscillating electric toothbrushes. Plaque is a leading cause of gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis and a likely contributor to conditions ranging from heart disease to osteoporosis. Thanks to the remarkable cleaning power of Sonicare toothbrushes a real revolution has taken place in home dental care.

The Sonicare Advantage

It's hard to believe user-error could be problem with a tool a simple as a manual toothbrush. Fact is millions of people who think they're taking great care of their teeth actually brush incorrectly. Typical mistakes include using the wrong motion, brushing too hard and not brushing long enough. Sonicare makes it easier to brush correctly by automating virtually the entire process.

Some of the features that make a Sonicare toothbrush so effective at improving oral hygiene include:

More Brushstrokes Per Minute -- A Sonicare toothbrush generates between 30,000 and 40,000 brush strokes per minute, according to WebMD. Standard electric toothbrushes only produce 3,000 to 7,500 brush strokes per minute. The best you can hope for with a manual toothbrush is about 300 strokes. Despite their high brush stroke, Sonicare brand toothbrushes are gentle enough to use on sensitive teeth.

Patented Plaque-Removal Sonic Technology -- The cleaning action of a Sonicare brush head is specially designed to remove plaque by whipping your toothpaste and saliva into an oxygen-rich foamy liquid. Sonicare then directs the fluid between your teeth and below your gum line where plaque bacterial grows. A Stanford University clinical study shows that this effect, called fluid dynamics, is able to remove plaque without the brush head making direct contact with your teeth.

Perfect Brushing Motion -- The patented bristles in Sonicare brush heads are designed to rotate in the back-and-forth motion recommended by dentists. This ensures a perfect brushing motion every time.

Gentle Massaging Action -- The massaging action of Sonicare brand toothbrushes improves gum health by stimulating blood circulation as it dislodges plaque at the gumline. Many people using Sonicare toothbrushes notice an improvement in their gum health in as little as two weeks.  Brushing with a Philips Sonicare toothbrush can have a major impact on your overall health because of its effectiveness in fighting plaque. Research shows that dental plaque has been linked to conditions ranging from heart attack to diabetes.

Perfect Timing Every Time -- Sonicare brand toothbrushes feature SmartimerTM technology -- innovative built-in timers which automatically let you know just how long you need to brush. Philips Sonicare has removed the error factor from brushing your teeth.

More Dentists Recommend Sonicare

Few commercially available dental products can have as great an impact on the quality of your oral hygiene as a Sonicare toothbrush. Philips Oral Healthcare reports that more than 175 clinical studies conducted by 50 universities around the world have found Sonicare toothbrushes to be highly effective at improving gum health and removing dental stains and plaque. This may be why dental professionals have made Sonicare the world's most recommended brand of "sonic" toothbrushes.

Which Philips Sonicare Toothbrush Is Right for You?

Philips Sonicare manufactures a variety of power toothbrushes ranging from state-of-the-art models featuring rechargeable lithium ion batteries and built-in UV sanitizers to battery-operated models specially designed for teens with dental braces. With nine models to choose from, you'll find there's a Sonicare toothbrush that's well-suited for every budget and dental condition.

Sonicare: The Next Best Thing to a Dental Cleaning

Philips Sonicare toothbrushes can make a major improvement in your dental health. While their ability to fight plaque is undeniably impressive, using a Sonicare power toothbrush is not a substitute for daily flossing or regular dental cleanings by a dentist or dental hygienist. If your teeth are overdue for a cleaning, it's time for a dentist visit.
