As of 2015, some of the different types of replacement heads for Philips Sonicare toothbrushes include DiamondClean, AdaptiveClean and Sonicare for Kids. Regardless of the head chosen, Philips recommends users replace the toothbrush head every three months to make brushing teeth more effective.
As of 2015, the DiamondClean toothbrush heads start at $29.99 and are designed to provide whiter teeth within one week of usage, as a result of the specialized cleaning it provides for the user. Philips advertises that these heads can remove up to 100 percent more stains from teeth in a week than a standard toothbrush can, and up to seven times more plaque than the standard toothbrush.
The AdaptiveClean products start at $29, as of 2015, and are designed to provide gentle cleaning for the user's gums. According to Philips, it does this by more accurately following the shape of the user's gums and teeth while he brushes, and it removes more plaque near the user's gum line than a standard toothbrush.
The Sonicare for Kids toothbrush heads start at $21.99, as of 2015. They are designed for brushing children's teeth, and Philips advertises that these heads provide solid enough plaque removal that the child is guaranteed to have a better checkup at her next dental visit.
