The best Sonicare models – A narrative that outlines how to determine which Sonicare model makes the best choice for you. It discusses Sonicare features, which of these features we think are important to have, and which models seem to offer a reasonable manifestation of them.
The Sonicare 2 and 3 Series toothbrushes don’t fit that mold. These models were introduced as “cheaper alternatives,” evidently to cover specific price points in the line up. And it seems that their design, as mentioned above, tends to reflect that.
People swear by all sorts of folk wisdom when it comes to keeping a clean toothbrush. Some run it through the dishwasher. Others soak the head in mouthwash or effervescent denture cleaner. Still others freeze it, boil it or invest in a pricey ultraviolet toothbrush “sanitizer.”

Dental hygienists work primarily in dentist’s offices, removing plaque and tartar from the teeth of patients. Dental hygienists also take X-rays, apply fluoride and sealants to patient’s teeth, and instruct patients about how to care for their teeth. Most hygienists have an associate degree in dental hygiene, and must become licensed before obtaining work.
It is tartar that you can see on the outside of teeth, in the form of yellow or white patches. It is usually removed by a dentist, because it is quite tough and sticks fast to enamel. If left untreated, tarter build ups can lead to bad breath and a general staining of the teeth. The enamel will take on a yellow colour and the patient may grow self-conscious very quickly. The good news is that a simple trip to the dentist can fix the problem.
We agree. We find it hard to believe that the “knock off” brushes adhere to the same stringent standards of the Sonicare brush heads (proper bristle stiffness/flexibility, rounded bristle ends, etc…).
I went ahead and fixed the brush-head by separating the plate from the base of the head, and the magnets – from the plate, and gluing them with superglue, and now the brush is working just fine. But why should one have to do that?
An advice to the Flecare+ is to also buy the diamond clean brush heads for even a smoother cleaning feeling or even the adaptive clean brush heads (The adaptive clean heads I think are very good but those I have not tried yet). The Flexcare brush head is very good to remove tartar, but the diamond clean makes your teeth even more silky and glossy and maybe slightly more comfortable to brush with, but already the Flexcare brush head is extremely good for the silky feeling.
This enzyme can help to strengthen the walls of the arteries and cleans out plaque. Some is made in the body and foods containing CoQ10 are lean meats, canola oil, and broccoli, cauliflower and CoQ10 supplements.
That’s a big deal. It gives you a much wider range of styles to choose from. And these heads are more convenient to change (a nice feature if you share a brush), and make it easier to keep things clean.
Use the correct brushing technique. When brushing your teeth, hold the toothbrush at a 45 degree angle against the gum line and sweep the brush away from the gums, in a short vertical, back-and-forth, or circular motions. Try not too scrub too hard, as this can actually damage the enamel on your teeth and cause high sensitivity to any type of stimulus.

The GUM Technique Deep Clean Toothbrush makes it easy to brush the way your dental hygienist recommends. By cleaning at a 45-degree angle, you are able to really clean around and under the gums without irritating them. The patented no-slip, quad-grip thumb pad on the handle is designed to make it easier to hold the brush at the proper angle so the bristles can penetrate deeply and accomplish subgingival (below-the-gumline) cleaning. Over time, this can help prevent gum disease. The soft compact head naturally follows over the curves of the teeth, including around molars or where teeth are missing. It also cleans between teeth (which is also great for non-flossers). The soft bristles make them ideal for anyone with sensitive teeth and gums.
Having said all of that, the most effective way to clean your teeth is always going to be the one that you develop a habit and learn to implement twice a day. If technological gadgets excite you and make the process more fun, then, by all means, stick to a motor powered brush!
There are some bonus features that you can look for when choosing your brushing companion. For example, look for the American Dentist Association (ADA) seal of approval. This is always a good sign that you are buying a trusted and tested product.
Since your entry-level associate’s degree program gives you the practical skills to work as a hygienist, a bachelor’s completion program will focus primarily on teaching you leadership skills and familiarize you with evidence-based practice and public health dentistry.
This phase is continuous throughout treatment, allowing the dental professional along with the patient to monitor the patients oral health status and assists in recognizing the need for change or amendment to the previously formulated treatment plan, according to the patients specific needs. Treatment is monitored using accurate periodontal charting and clinical observation of hard and soft tissues by the dental professional. The results of the periodontal charting and clinical observation dictates what follows the non-surgical periodontal phase. The three generalised outcomes that may result are essentially;
In addition to this, we have excluded internationally made and shipped models. We found that such models often lack appropriate warranty and guarantees for the American consumers. They also tend to be quite scarce in replacement parts. Not to mention that it would take 3-4 weeks to get the desired replacements.
Unfortunately, our website doesn’t have the resources of a big organization (like Consumer Reports for example) who might run dozens of each model for weeks on end to evaluate reliability. Or scientifically measure how the brushing action of one compares to another. So, actually quantifying model differences isn’t really something we can do.
If someone in your family is sick or is at a higher risk of infection, taking some preventive steps may help guard against a problem. Replacing toothbrushes more often, buying disposable toothbrushes and using antibacterial mouthwash to rinse and soak could offer some benefit. If you choose to try a UV toothbrush sanitizer, the product should be approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Keep in mind that a UV sanitizer will not remove all germs. Because the ultraviolet light may deteriorate the bristles, you should inspect and replace your toothbrush more often.
But a simple rinse doesn’t remove all traces of bacteria anyway, and a damp toothbrush is a fantastic breeding ground for bacteria to spend all night long multiplying. So by morning, your toothbrush still looks clean – but it’s far from sanitary.
You may not be aware of this but the whole reason to buy a Sonicare is because of its full-power 31,000 brushstrokes-per-minute brushing action. (In some promotional materials this may be stated as the equivalent 62,000 brush movements/minute.)
Don’t let a high salary after 2 yrs of training convince you to become a dental hygienist. As others have said, it is monotonous, leaves you with neck/wrist damage, and doesn’t provide transferable skills to another career. Appt times are getting shorter, so one must cut corners to “complete” procedures. I regret my decision to become an hygienist.
Use a fluoride toothpaste. If your child is less than 7 years old, put only a pea-sized amount on their toothbrush. Seek advice from a dentist or other health care professional before introducing fluoride toothpaste to children under 2 years of age.
Keeping the Aura Clean Toothbrush in first class condition takes place within the Aura Clean Base Station. Inside is a ring of UV-C light that attacks pathogens from all angles.
