I've been using this electric toothbrush for years. I did have to replace it; however it was my fault the first one broke. This is a good brand and it does a decent job brushing. It's easy to charge and easy to replace the brush heads.
Great product, battery lasts for weeks!
It's a great product, but a bit expensive for the product and its replacement heads. Overall, would buy again. Works well and battery lasts forever.
high level quality
One of the best purchases I have ever made was the Phillips Sonicare Rechargeable Toothbrush. I am so glad I decided to change from trational toothbrushes to electric, and I am pleased I bought the Phillips Sonicare brand. This electric toothbrush is so easy to use, feels awesome, my teeth feel so much cleaner, and I have seen much better results. It took some time to get used to the humming and vibrations, but it takes no time to adjust because the toothbrush is thst good. You replace the heads every 3 months just like you change a traditional toothbrush out, and the process is simple. If oral hygiene is as important to you as me, you will love it.
Best toothbrush I've ever used
Never have I used a toothbrush that made my mouth feel so clean. There are 3 speeds on this toothbrush, and a timer, so you know how long to brush for. The battery seems to hold a charge for quite a while when not left to charge. If you put the handle portion down after rinsing it off, without drying it, the base does get somewhat dirty. The sanitizer is a definite highlight of this product. I feel like I get sick much less often, though I can't confirm it has anything to do with this, just a speculation. We've had it for several years, so it's durable. After 5 years we just had to replace the sanitizer light bulb for the first time. The durability makes up for the price of this product. It is a little steep, but it's an investment, and gets your teeth so much cleaner than a regular brush.
Just a fabulous design...
This may be the most beautiful machine I've ever seen. The handle is permanently, hermetically sealed. The head has what appear to be magnets at the end of some good-sized struts, and apparently the electronics generate an oscillating magnetic field right through the plastic to shake them. But we're not talking wimpy here. I disabled the gradual start feature (they tell you how!) to see what I was getting into, and you've got to do this just right or the tickling of your lips will be unbearable. I think I'm getting the hang of it, and I rather like the brushing action. Anyway, charging is apparently also by transformer action right through the plastic. Just a fabulous design. And the timer function sounds as though it would be infuriating, but it turns out to be useful; just don't take it so seriously. One caution, though: As I recall, when I stopped brushing long ago and got 9 cavities, several were on the chewing surfaces, so best to hit those too.

I LOOOOOOVE THIS, I am 17 years old, and i got some troubles with my dentist cause i did not brush my teeths as i should, and it it because i think it is boring, that is what i thought until i buyed this, I think it is pretty awesome, it one of a milliom. This is a toothbrusher that i will recomended to my friends and family, cause it totally change my smile, if you wanna hace a perfect, model smile, this is it, you do not have to wait anymore, and waste your time researching. Buy it, yo won't regreat it, i promise it. I remember a teethbrusher that my mom buyed last year, she was not happy with it, i personally did not knew why, but she was not; i told her, buy this one, she did not believe me,and she bought it, and she it's totally happy, she just keeps it buying it, over and over again, until today
Love this: Philips Sonicare Flex Care Toothbrush
I really like this rechargeable electric toothbrush it really makes your teeth and whole mouth feel dentist clean, white and polished looking, I like some reviewers have complained about the plastic back part of the brush hitting the teeth due to size which causes a unpleasant feeling in my opinion this problem could be solved by a bigger brush head, but still this brand of toothbrush is well worth it cost, the rechargeable battery is long lasting as well, I charge it once and it lasts for about three months with about two or three uses a week. I love the fact that it has a hygenic cover while not in use or while traveling included.
I love this toothbrush! I have been using an electric toothbrush for many years, but until i bought this brush a few months ago, i was using the kind that would spin instead of vibrate. I cant believe the difference in how clean my teeth look and feel since starting to use this toothbrush. I was having some problems with my gums around my wisdom teeth, but since using this brush i havent had any more problems. I went out and bought one for each of my family members it was THAT good!
Dentist visits are becoming enjoyable now.
I'm 63 and maintaining healthy gums and teeth are so important. I have always gotten my teeth cleaned on a regular basis, but last year I switched dentist's and my new dentist gave me some bad news. He told me I was beginning to develop some gum disease. He recommended that I come in and do what is known as a Deep Cleaning, where they go below the gum line to clean your teeth. My dentist also told me to start using an electric toothbrush, not a manual one. So I purchase the Philips Sonicare Essence. The first time I used it I was surprised at the level of vibrations I felt, but my teeth felt so much cleaner than when I used a regular toothbrush. It's been a year now and I really enjoy going to the dentist now and hearing them say that everything looks good and that my gums are healthy and pink and my teeth are clean. Its fun to hear the dental hygienist tell me that there is nothing to clean off my teeth, so she just polishes them now. For Christmas, I purchase 2 Philips Sonicare Electric Toothbrushes for both my adult sons, so they can get head start on keeping their teeth cleaner and gums healthier. The replacement heads are easy to change and very affordable. I highly recommend the Philips Sonicare Essence Toothbrush.
Really cleans your teeth, its a clean that you can feel.
I have never had any problems with my Philips Sonicare, you do have to replace the toothbrush head when the brush wears down, but it is easy to change.
