The reviews for Sonic toothbrushes by Philips are on the whole positive. The most common positives include a superior clean, better plaque removal and being recommended by dentists the world over. Negative points include the high price, the level of noise and that some models that are somewhat heavy.
Sonicare is a high-end toothbrush from Philips with a range of models. All of them fare very well in the reviews with regarding to their cleaning capabilities. Multiple cleaning modes and over 30,000 brush strokes every minute make them effective in every part of the mouth and for all ages. Most users report better gum health and improved teeth whitening within just one or two weeks of using the toothbrush. Sonicare brushes have smaller brush heads, which make them easier to maneuver in the mouth. They can be charged by plugging them into a laptop and can be cleaned in the top rack of the dishwasher.
The DiamondClean brush has its own travel case. It removes five times more plaque than other toothbrushes and makes teeth whiter after just one week of consistent use. The brush has five cleaning modes and the polish function brightens the front teeth. The sensitive mode provides very gentle cleaning that is suitable for the elderly or those with damaged or very brittle teeth.
In addition to the high price of the DiamondClean, the vibration levels of the Essence model are a negative point. Other minus points included the weight of 7.4 ounces, which made it cumbersome, and the fact that the mode illumination is not very bright when the charge is low.
