About two weeks ago, Philips Sonicare challenged my boys and I to change our smiles with the help of the new Sonicare DiamondClean adult toothbrush and the Sonicare for Kids power toothbrush. In just two weeks, the brushes promised to improve our smiles and as a family that’s had plenty of dental concerns already, that was a claim we couldn’t wait to put to the test!
My boys loved the Sonicare for Kids toothbrush from the very first use and with its kid-friendly design, it’s easy to see why! Since young children can have trouble brushing properly, using an electric toothbrush just makes sense since the brush provides a much more thorough clean. My boys had already been using electric toothbrushes but I could tell from the way they reacted to this one that the feeling was completely different. Both boys spent quite a bit of time giggling about how much the toothbrush tickled!
But that tickling is helping to remove up to 75% more plaque than a manual toothbrush with 500 brush strokes per second, and so as much as Zackary and Benjamin enjoyed the new toothbrush, I think I enjoyed it even more because every time they brushed their teeth, I knew they were getting the best clean possible. And with a built-in timer that gradually increases to the two-minute mark to help kids learn how long to brush, I knew they weren’t rushing the job either.
Top all that off with a fun customizable case featuring a variety of different designs and sticker sheets to reward kids for good brushing, and we had an electric toothbrush that was a hit with the whole family. My boys actually both just had cavity-free one-year checkups and with this toothbrush, I’m confident they’ll be enjoying the same results next year!
But I wanted to improve my dental health too, so I got busy testing out the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean electric toothbrush. This toothbrush is hands-down the best electric toothbrush I have ever owned. And just like my boys, I found that it tickled my mouth the first few times I used it! Featuring five different settings to provide different dental hygiene benefits, I really did feel like I’d just come from the dentist after using it.
The toothbrush also boasts special diamond-shaped bristles that are designed to get between teeth for a more thorough clean and it didn’t take long for me to notice the difference. Philips Sonicare promised improved gum health in just two weeks and whiter teeth in just one. I continued using my same brand of Sensodyne toothpaste but started doing one minute of brushing with the Gum Care setting and one minute with the White setting. I also occasionally used the Polish setting about every other day for thirty seconds to get my teeth especially clean and smooth.
Now I must say that my teeth have been an issue with me for years and in addition to lots of cavities, my gums often bleed when I brush. After just three days using the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean brush, my gums weren’t bleeding anymore! In less than a week, I saw the gum health benefits that the electric toothbrush had promised. While I found it a little harder to judge if my teeth were whiter, within a few days my smile did seem brighter. And my mouth feels so much cleaner and healthier too!
Sonicare put smiles on the faces of everyone in this house and even though I still have some cavities to deal with, I have to admit I’m actually looking forward to my next dentist appointment because once the cavities are fixed, I know I’ll be able to maintain a healthy smile. The Sonicare for Kids power toothbrush and Sonicare DiamondClean toothbrush are available at major stores across Canada now and are definitely worth the investment. With such effective electric toothbrushes for both children and adults, everyone will be excited about brushing…especially once you see the difference it makes in the dentist bills!
