I purchased the Philips Sonicare HX5610 based on personal recommendation from my dentist (and close friend). I have been undergoing a `rejuvenation' of sorts. In the past 6 months I've made it my goal (with the help of my dentist) to have the healthiest, cleanest and whitest smile possible in preparation for my best friend's wedding. The first step was to upgrade my toothbrush from my old manual toothbrush, to the Sonicare. I chose this because he said it was what he used at home, and it was somewhat economical compared to the other options he mentioned. This is also the reason why I chose this teeth whitening solution as opposed to using his services - he said it would cost me $500 dollars, then laughed and gave me the 2nd option!

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.

UPDATE June 2015: I still love this brush, a caveat: Change the brush head much more often than you'd think - every 2 months - it works SOOOOO much better with a new brush!!! Also, swish (don't swallow) about a teaspoon of 3% H2O2 (peroxide) with your toothpaste for a ridiculous clean!

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.

If you find my review helpful, please give it an up-vote; I really appreciate your feedback!

This electric toothbrush is Sonicare's lowest level model. It has the basic features that come with every Sonicare, even the cheapest 39.99 one. I have owned a Sonicare for over 10 years and have had 3 different models. Can I tell the difference between the 3 models I have owned....not really. I brush my teeth for the 2 minutes and any other features usually don't get used on a daily basis when I am rushing to get to work or to go out with friends. The reason why I take two stars away from this toothbrush is because of a flaw in the style of this toothbrush. This particular brush allows for water, toothpaste and oral fluids to get inside of the toothbrush. The toothbrush mechanism goes over the body of the handle and twists off. Water and other fluids get inside of the toothbrush causing it to rust and malfunction if you do not clean it out often. Because of this flaw which is the exact same style as my original Sonicare, I could not wait to upgrade to the Philips Sonicare HX6711/02 HealthyWhite 710 Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush in 2010. It was gross to have to keep cleaning the inside of the toothbrush mechanism. If you look at the pictures of each of these toothbrushes, you will see that this one twists over the handle while the one I bought in 2010 is all one piece and you don't have to worry about oral fluids getting into the toothbrush. For 5 dollars more you can get the HX6711 HealthyWhite toothbrush which I feel is far superior to this toothbrush. The travel case is nice but, I would rather put my toothbrush head in a zip-lock bag for travel then buy this toothbrush just for the case.Read more ›
