Philips Electric Toothbrush

What do you need to know about the Philips electric toothbrush line? Royal Philips Electronics is more commonly known as just Philips. 

It's a company that's been around since 1891, founded in the Netherlands, with corporate bodies located worldwide these days. 

It specializes in products that maximize health in its customers' lives -not just toothbrushes, but razors, bottles and baby feeding aids, and hair care.

Philips offers a full and varied line of toothbrushes.  The website does not present pricing in easy view of the casual shopper.  You have to actually click on the "buy" button in order to find out how much an item costs. 

Interestingly, Philips does not entice you to buy directly from them; it offers the option to buy Philips toothbrush items at Amazon or JandR right alongside its own logo. 

Among the top Philips electric toothbrushes is a sonic version called the Philips Sonicare FlexCare Rechargeable Sonic Toothbrush with Sanitizer

It promises complete gum care, including bristle action at a high frequency and high amplitude.  (I had to look that one up; it means lots of bristles.) 

The brush head is manufactured in a unique contoured shape so that it reaches as much as possible into the deep recesses of each tooth.

The sonic technology stimulates tiny jets of water and bubbles, from your saliva, the water you're brushing with, and the toothpaste you're using, that reach beyond the ends of the bristles for extra cleaning power. 

Philips says its products "gently whip your toothpaste and saliva into an oxygen-rich foamy liquid." 

This healthful watery foam cleans and rinses not just all around your teeth, but it also promises to provide gentle massage action and stimulate better blood flow in the gums. 

The sonic toothbrush is advertised as being more gentle on the tooth's dentin than oscillating toothbrushes. 

Care has been taken with the engineering of Philips electric toothbrushes that will be easy on sensitive teeth yet provide healthier gums in two weeks' time.

Clinical studies cited on the website claim that gingival bleeding will be reduced by 0.8% after using a sonic toothbrush instead of a manual toothbrush for two weeks and by almost 4% after another two weeks. 

Imagine how that translates after a couple months of use!
