Philips Sonicare Essence Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush Features
Gently Cleans Teeth with Sonic Technology
Removing up to two times more plaque than a manual toothbrush, the Philips Sonicare Essence Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush uses powerful Sonic technology to clean teeth with up to 31,000 strokes per minute. These sweeping motions drive fluids deep into the tight spaces between your teeth and along your gum line, resulting in a cleaner, healthier mouth. The Essence is gentle enough to use on veneers, braces, implants, and sensitive teeth.
Contoured Bristles and Soft-Grip Handle for Comfort
With smooth, contoured bristles that correspond to the natural shape of your teeth, this Sonicare toothbrush delivers a thorough, comfortable brushing experience. Its angled neck provides optimal reach for the bristles, which have extra-soft rounded ends that go deep between teeth to remove plaque and reduce gingivitis. The blue soft -touch grip makes the handle easy to hold and maneuver while brushing.
Easy-Start and Smartimer Simplify Brushing
You need only to apply light pressure when guiding this toothbrush over your teeth--the Essence will do the work for you through its high speed bristle motion and dynamic cleaning action. The easy-start option gently increases the toothbrush's power over the first 12 uses to help you adjust to using a power toothbrush. The Smartimer feature sets brushing time to two minutes, the time recommended by dental professionals, and shuts the toothbrush off after that cycle.
Two Weeks of Power on a Single Charge
Because the Essence can last up to two weeks between charges, you can leave its charger at home for your travels. A soft travel case and hygienic travel cap are included for convenience. An indicator on the brush displays remaining battery life and blinks when you need to recharge. The Philips Sonicare Essence is backed by a full 2-year warranty and a 90-day money-back guarantee.

Top Customer Reviews
I am very happy that my dentist is an honest person who will recommend solutions to me not based on personal gain, but on quality. He said the way to use this product is as follows. You'll want to use this product for exactly 2 minutes, 30 seconds on each quadrant of your mouth. Think about your mouth's surface as having 4 sections, top front, top back (behind), bottom front, and bottom back. There is an easy 2 minute indicator that is built into this brush, which makes it easy to remember when you're done. Or you can simply watch a 2 minuteyoutube video, which is what I do to kill time while brushing! J (pro tip!)
I was also worried about gum and teeth sensitivity due to how fast these things go. It's the equivalent to 31,000 brush strokes per minute.Read more ›
This toothbrush is amazing! I'll just say this:
With a manual brush, I notice a film of plaque reforming after 12 hours or so. I thought this was normal.
Well, imagine my surprise when after using the Sonicare, my teeth remained squeaky clean for 3 DAYS! Yes, I experimented to see how long I could go without accumulating plaque. This device cleans the mouth SO thoroughly, it's scary; the junk I spat out after the first use was truly frightening! All that bacteria that had been damaging my smile were dislodged with stunning completeness! The Sonicare literally vibrates the plaque out from under the gum-line!
I sincerely wish you try this item for yourself. You will not be disappointed!
BTW, in the case of travelling overseas - when fully charged, you'll get about 20 uses on a single charge...enough for a 10 day trip.
A note about the design: I advise simply unscrewing the brush-head after every few uses and cleaning it with peroxide or just plain H2O. This will keep any gunk from accumulating inside the apparatus. It takes about 20 seconds to clean it, so it no big deal, IMO.
This model is economically priced and functions flawlessly to give you a clean you thought only a trip to the dentist could give.
