About a year ago, I switched from a manual toothbrush to an electric one and the difference in my teeth was pretty amazing. After trying an electric toothbrush, there’s no way that I’ll ever go back to a manual one. But this year, Philips Sonicare challenged me to trade my current electric toothbrush for the Sonicare FlexCare Platinum and I couldn’t wait to see how it worked for me.
The Philips Sonicare FlexCare Platinum has so much technology packed into it that sets it apart from other electric toothbrushes. The patented sonic technology deliver 31,000 brushstrokes a minute and removes up to seven times more plaque between teeth than a manual brush. I really liked the fact that the brush had different intensity levels since my teeth are sensitive and can’t take too much pressure. The lowest setting was perfect for me and let me get a thorough clean without being too hard on my mouth.
After my first time using the FlexCare Platinum, I could feel the difference. Just two minutes of brushing gave me the same thoroughly clean feeling I have after visiting the dentist. And the UV sanitizer was such a genius addition to this toothbrush. Being able to eliminate the germs from a toothbrush after brushing means that I can always know my mouth gets the most thorough clean possible.
But while I could feel the difference the Sonicare FlexCare Platinum electric toothbrush made after just one use, it wasn’t until I’d used it for about a week that I really started seeing a difference. The whitening mode on the toothbrush does an amazing job both of removing surface stains and of brightening teeth. I have to admit, I didn’t expect to see such a difference without using an actual whitening product of some sort. But with nothing more than the toothbrush and my regular toothpaste, my teeth looked whiter and brighter!
There are plenty of other things I love about the Philips Sonicare FlexCare Platinum. The long-lasting battery and travel caps and case make it a great choice for travel. The extra-long bristles provide a deep clean that’s incredibly thorough. And the UV sanitizer ensures that every time I brush my teeth, I’m brushing germs away instead of adding them to my mouth.
I have to admit, I had a hard time believing that switching from a manual toothbrush to an electric toothbrush would make that much of a difference in my oral health, but I was wrong. And while I didn’t think switching from one electric toothbrush to another would make that much of a difference either, the Philips Sonicare FlexCare Platinum is something special. For anyone that wants to ensure superior oral health, this toothbrush is sure to satisfy. Check it out and get a toothbrush that will make such a difference in your teeth that even your dentist will notice!
