The Phillips Sonicare HX6972 is a state of the art electric toothbrush which is recommended by dentists for improving gum health.
It comes with five brushing modes Cleaning, Gum Care, Refresh, Sensitive and massage to cater for your dental care needs. The massage mode is chosen, the brush drives fluids between your teeth to give you a soothing feeling. The cleaning mode is designed for maximum cleaning efficiency.
The gum care mode removes plaque along the gums and reduces inflammation and bleeding. If refresh mode is selected, it gives us a quick freshening up. It comes with an ultra violet head sanitizer which kills 99 percent of the germs. It comes with a rechargeable battery.
There is an LED backlight which indicates the mode which has been selected and also the status of battery. If it gets low, the light blinks indicating that it needs charging. The brush uses a patented Sonic technology to give the user a gentle brushing experience which reduces the inflammation associated with manual brushing.
The brush is easy to use as you don’t have to apply much pressure. The brush makes the adjustments for you. It has an Easy-Start mode which gradually increases the power over 12 uses.
There are two timing modes. One is the Smart timer which encourages you to brush for two minutes. The Quadpacer beeps after every 30 seconds so that you can brush all four quarters of the mouth.
After being charged for a full day, this brush can be used for three weeks so it has a long battery life. It is a toothbrush which improves gum health by reducing the bleeding and inflammation. Its streamlined design follows the contours of the mouth and reaches difficult places in the mouth to clean them.
The brush is automatically cleaned of any germs thanks to the ultraviolet sanitizer. It comes with two brush heads, a standard brush head and a compact brush each designed for removing plaque between the teeth. The color coding on brush heads saves you from mixing your brush with someone else’s and so it’s an added advantage.
There is not much wrong with this product. The only negative point might be the steep price tag on it but considering the health benefits that it offers, it is worth the money.
