Having up to 31,000 brush strokes per minute, this model is slower than the diamond clean. But, do not fool yourself. If you have never used an ultrasonic toothbrush before, you will feel the vigorous power of this elegantly designed teeth cleaning gadget. Despite being slower, the 2 Series Sonicare is also considerably cheaper and it works wonders for removing plaque and eliminating destructive bacteria in your mouth.
Daily tooth brushing is the most basic of oral care. Research suggests the ideal brushing time is two minutes, and the ideal pressure is 150 grams, which is about the weight of an orange. Brushing your teeth too hard and longer than necessary may cause more harm than good, so there’s no reason to brush harder or longer. Ideally, brush twice or three times a day — in the morning, evening and 30 to 60 minutes after your main meal.

Nothing but frustration with Phillips USA that owns Sonicare. My product failed and at first Phillips said they would do nothing. Then they agreed to replace it, but sent me a computer battery instead. Then they sent 3 Sonicare AIrfloss. I had to go to the post office four times to return items they sent by mistake. My chats and calls to the company were disconnected. Promises were made then rescinded. In frustration I wrote the CEO about the hours of my time they wasted with their compounded mistakes. Mr Brent Shafer, the CEO waited weeks before they would respond and all they would do is of free couple brush heads – not appropriate in my book given the massive amount of time and frustration they caused me.
Ultimately, insurance companies argue that this gateway approach to services controls costs, which in turn allows them to offer more comprehensive dental coverage. Some of the drawbacks to the insured are the additional amount of time it takes to obtain the services that are actually needed and the multiple co-payments that must be made with every additional office visit. A co-payment is the out-of-pocket contribution that insurance companies require insureds to pay whenever they make an office visit.
There are three cleaning modes (clean, white, gum care), as well as low, medium and high intensity settings, which are described as a choice of ‘nine brushing experiences’ by Philips. This particular model has parts across the entire brush which glow a different color according to which experience you are supposed to be having.
This Fairywill Sonic electric toothbrush has exceeded my expectations. I have had this toothbrush for going on 3 weeks now and I absolutely love it. This is a sonic toothbrush so it doesn’t spin or twist. It vibrates/pulses by using one of three modes; Clean, Sensitive and Massage. There is one button on the front of the toothbrush that turns it on/off and cycles through the different modes. There is also a built in timer set for 2 minutes which is the recommended brush time.

Therefore if you own the Sonicare, 2 Series plaque defence, 3 Series gum health, DiamondClean, EasyClean, FlexCare, FlexCare Platinum, FlexCare+, for Kids or HealthyWhite any of the following brush heads can be used.

Health and Human Services Secretary Marylou Sudders told the Public Health Committee in September that establishing a new mid-level practitioner would be “the right thing to do,” though it remains to be seen whether the administration can support the details of the compromise.
Battery powered toothbrushes are generally very affordable, but they lack the power and features that you’d get from a rechargeable toothbrush. People who choose to buy a battery-powered toothbrush usually choose them as they are a little more affordable, convenient and they don’t need an electric outlet to be plugged into.
It comes with a two-minute sand timer that your child will love to watch to figure out when it’s time to stop brushing. It also comes with a cute rinse cup that your child should love to use, a stand to hold everything, and a replacement head.
Manual and electric toothbrushes can be equally effective if used right, research suggests. To brush manually: Put the brush at a 45-degree angle against gums; move it back and forth gently in toothwide strokes over all teeth; move the “toe” of the brush up and down to clean inside front teeth; and brush your tongue gently to remove bacteria and freshen breath. With an electric brush, be sure to cover all surfaces, and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
Great product and a significant saving compared to the original brushes. The head is slightly larger and the bristles are off-set which I think makes them more effective. I have been using this product for 2 weeks and am very happy with the results. Feels good on my gums. Of course the ultimate test is an oral hygiene visits at the dentist. It’s too early for that measure but I feel confident this product will serve me well.
You have the option of choosing from the three operational modes, Clean- the standard mode, White- for whiter teeth and Gum Care- for gentle massage over the teeth. The brushing options allow you to maintain the oral health without damaging the mouth. Since it works with a sonic technology, it rotates at a speed of 31,000 strokes per minute to provide whiter teeth using dynamic action.
An air flosser is a great option when you have braces, but I would also consider using inter-dental brushes too. It is essential to make sure you are doing all you can to clean your teeth properly when wearing braces to avoid any issue later.
In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. leftover toothpaste or floss). Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping. You cannot ship dripping packages.
Artificial saliva or saliva substitutes can be used to replace moisture and lubricate the mouth. These substitutes are available commercially and come in a variety of formulations including solutions, sprays, gels and lozenges. In general, they contain an agent to increase viscosity, such as carboxymethylcellulose or hydroxyethylcellulose, minerals such as calcium and phosphate ions and fluoride, preservatives such as methyl- or propylparaben, and flavoring and related agents.
I thought the waterproof handle was a nice feature as it makes it convenient for the kids to brush their teeth while they are in the bath or shower without having to worry about any type of water damage to their electric toothbrush.
The catch is, we did a Google search of Oral-B’s entire English version website and only found two pages that even made mention of this mode. And that was just as sentence-fragment promotional/marketing blurbs and nothing really detailed or substantial.

This series of four papers reports and interprets the findings of the Adult Dental Health Survey (ADHS), 2009, published in early 2011. This is the fifth in a series of surveys repeated every decade since 1968. The evolution of the surveys and the way the supporting methodology has changed to meet the changing needs and circumstances over the last 40 years is described. In 1968, 37% of adults in England and Wales were edentate. By 2009, only 6% of the combined population of England, Wales and Northern Ireland were edentate. Among the dentate in 1968, there were a mean of 21.9 teeth. By 2009, not only had the dentate increased by 30 percentage points as a fraction of the population, but the number of teeth in this group had also increased by nearly four teeth on average to 25.7. There were significant variations in oral health according to geography and social variables and smaller differences according to sex. The retention of 21 or more teeth is widely used as a way of defining a minimum functional dentition. The proportion of adults with 21+ teeth increased from 73% in 1978 to 86% in 2009. Further huge improvements are projected as younger generations age, assuming future tooth loss continues at current low rates. We might expect that over 90% of those aged 35-44 in 2009 have a realistic prospect of retaining a functional natural dentition of 21 or more teeth by age 80.
Goby aims to change all that by mailing you a new brush head every three months. They only make one variety. It’s round, it oscillates, and it gets into crevices well. All in all, it’s a pretty good replica of the Oral-B experience—but louder and a little less refined.
This is the best powered toothbrush among lower budget brushes. This powered toothbrush is rich with different features and provides an efficient brushing solution at a good price. It allows you to time your brushing, providing the easy maintenance of proper oral health.
Oral-B® Electric Toothbrushes make getting rid of plaque easier. The dentist-inspired, small, round brush head surrounds each tooth for an individualized clean, removing more plaque in hard-to-reach areas.Two-Minute Timer
The big thing with electric toothbrushes is to make sure you’re buying an age-appropriate one. If you don’t, it will be far too big and aggressive for your child’s mouth. Consider getting one that plays music for the entire 2 minutes your child should be brushing.
My second time purchasing this item. Does a great job! I discarded the first one, after about a year of use. Was getting moldy, and dirty inside the base; and would have been time-consuming to clean; if that was even an option. Not 100% certain the UV light works, but love how it cleans my teeth. In the future, I will wipe down the toothbrush, after each use, to prevent the unsanitary build-up inside the base.

The BrushPacer interval timer indicates when it’s time for you to move to another segment of your mouth, while the Smartimer helps you reach the dentist professional recommended brushing time of two minutes. Together, they set the pace for a successful brushing session.
Tooth decay is largely preventable yet it remains a serious problem. Findings from Public Health England’s (PHE) 2015 national dental epidemiology survey of 5 year old children showed that in 2015 in England, a quarter (25%) of 5 year olds had experienced tooth decay, having on average 3 or 4 teeth affected. The vast majority of tooth decay was untreated.
Specifically designed to help improve the teeth whitening process, this is one of Philips higher-end electric toothbrushes. In other words, it is priced over $100. However, it does not come short of brushing features and it does have the standard patented Sonicare technology. 31,000 brush strokes per minute are not a problem for this model.
