Philips Sonicare DiamondClean 9750 deals
This toothbrush is as far away as you can get from the old fraying toothbrush in a chipped mug. Super-sleek, with gold detailing and an attractive glass charger and charging glass, it will look great in the most stylish bathroom. More importantly, it does a superb job at achieving squeaky clean teeth, claiming to remove 10 times more plaque and improve gum health by up to seven times in two weeks if you use the gum health mode (or to remove up to 100% more stains in just three days compared with a manual brush using the whiteplus mode).
The most stand-out feature is the tech. When you sync it with the Sonicare app, it will identify which of the four brush heads you’ve chosen and choose the correct brushing mode, then provide you real-time feedback as you brush, creating a 3-D map of your mouth and telling you when to move to the next section. It’ll warn you if you’re pressing too hard, alert you if you’ve missed a spot and even create a progress report you can share with your dentist or hygienist. When you’re away from home you can still have it with you – it has a USB travel case which charges it in between brushes.
On the whole users enjoy the extra help with their teeth cleaning – it rates a healthy 4.7 stars on Amazon. One reviewer reports that their visits to the hygienist to have their teeth professionally cleaned have halved as a result, and many praise it for achieving that dentist-fresh feel. The main complaints, even from fans, relate to the app. Some describe it as glitchy and others report problems with connecting with the brush and detecting parts of the mouth. Some users also object to pop-up ads and express concerns about privacy and data collection when using the app.
Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 5100 deals
If you have sensitive teeth or are concerned about your gum health (especially receding gums) this is the Philips electric toothbrush for you. It is designed to give your teeth an effective and thorough clean without damaging delicate gums or hurting sensitive teeth.
It has three modes – clean, white and gum care. Gum care mode allows an extra minute of reduced-power brushing to gently massage your gums. If you’re brushing too hard (which can cause your gums to recede) it vibrates, and buzzes to let you know when to move to the next part of your mouth. It only comes with one brush, for gum care mode. If you use the white or clean mode, Philips recommends you buy specific brushes for them.
Reviewers are mostly very enthusiastic, awarding it 4.7 stars overall and praising it for thorough cleaning and helpful alerts (although a few complain the sensor didn’t work well for them and report little difference in the cleaning modes other than the different length of time). There are grumbles about the price of replacement brush heads, and it’s a shame that brushes for all the modes are not included. Some also express regret that the travel case doesn’t incorporate the charger or charge the brush itself.
Philips Sonicare 9900 Prestige deals
Let’s start by taking a moment to admire how beautiful this electric toothbrush is, with its chic design, rose gold accents and fabulous travel case. But even its good looks are not its best feature – if you want to upgrade your smile, this Philips electric toothbrush promises to deliver, claiming to remove 20 times more plaque and up to 100% more stains in less than two days than a manual brush, thanks to angled bristles with triangular tips.
It features SenseIQ technology which senses the wash you are brushing. It alerts you if you use a scrubbing motion and if you brush too hard it will first tell you with a light and vibration and then, if you don’t correct it, will adapt the intensity. As with the DiamondClean, the Sonicare app gives you a 3-D map of your mouth, real-time feedback, recommendations and progress reports.
Reviewers, who award it 4.5 stars overall on Amazon, are mostly enthusiastic. “My teeth actually twinkled”, says one. “What magic could a toothbrush offer that makes it worth the cost of a flight to Vegas?” asks another, before answering, “The app, that’s what. It brings the hygienist to your bathroom.” Not everyone is sold, though, with several complaints about the app being glitchy and concerns over privacy and data. Some reviewers question whether it’s worth the hefty price tag, but as one pointed out, it’s cheaper than most dental work.
Philips Sonicare DailyClean 1100 deals
You don’t need to spend a fortune to get your teeth really clean, and with this budget electric toothbrush you can have sparkling teeth without breaking the bank. It’s very straightforward without the fancy features of the more expensive models. There’s no app, pressure sensors or travel case, and there’s just one cleaning mode, but if you don’t look for these extras it’s excellent value.
What it does offer, in common with every Philips electric toothbrush, is powerful cleaning (it promises to remove three times more plaque than a manual toothbrush), plus a timer and a quadpacer that beeps to prompt you to move to the next area of your mouth. With its easy start program to accustom you to the intensity, it’s perfect for someone using an electric toothbrush for the first time.
Most reviewers are enthusiastic and it receives 4.7 stars overall. Although some note that it’s not as powerful as more expensive models, most are pleased with its performance and don’t miss the trappings of the more costly versions. As one reviewer says, “This model is perfect value and the more expensive models ($25+) only have small additional features.” There are, however, multiple complaints about the battery life, which many report as being much shorter than the promised 14 days, and about the fact there’s no light to indicate battery life.
Philips Sonicare for kids sonic electric toothbrush deals
Every parent knows how difficult it can be to get kids to clean their teeth and stick with it for long enough to do the job. Enter the Philips Sonicare for kids – an electric toothbrush that makes tooth brushing fun. The brush itself, which comes in blue or pink with an easy grip handle, comes with stickers to customize it and has two modes with different intensities.
The toothbrush is accompanied by an interactive app with animations and rewards for brushing properly, which parents report encourages their children to persist for longer, and follows the kids as they brush, prompting them to brush thoroughly and move the toothbrush around their mouth.
On the whole, users find it a terrific way to get their children to brush their teeth properly. “My son N E V E R brushed his teeth willingly prior to this brush/app. Now I have him begging to brush his teeth before school,” reports one delighted parent. There are some grumbles that the app doesn’t work with every device, and that the brush head provided is too large for younger users (requiring a further purchase of a smaller brush head). Parents also warn that younger children will need careful supervision so as not to damage their gums, and it’s not suitable for the under 3s.
