Product Description

The new Sonicare Elite Series rechargable power toothbrush has new Superior Cleaning Technology that directs powerful cleaning action into hard-to-reach areas for 20% better plaque removal between teeth. Sonicare Elite improves gum health by reversing gingivitis and shrinking periodontal pockets. Whiter teeth and healthier gums in 28 days guaranteed!

Take your oral health to the next level with the Sonicare Elite 7500. With the power of sonic technology, the Elite 7500 is a great investment in your total health. Plus, with a two-year warranty, you can be sure that the Elite 7500 is made to last. This model is Sonicare's top-of-the-line Elite toothbrush with full range of powerful features, such as Programmable Quadpacer, for special attention to trouble spots. The Deluxe Recharge Gauge is perfect for taking your brush on the road. Plus, the 7500 is packaged with an extra brush head, giving you a full year of brushing before you need a replacement.

Sonicare technology generates 31,000 bristle sweeps per minute. Laboratory studies show that it removes harmful plaque bacteria up to 4 mm beyond the bristle tips -- even below the gum-line.

The Elite brushes have a tapered, lightweight handle, angled neck and advanced brush head design, making brushing more effective and enjoyable.

The Elite's brushes have a tapered, lightweight handle, angled neck and advanced brush head design, making brushing more effective and enjoyable. The design also allows you to spend time on hard-to-reach areas and trouble spots without risking enamel wear. The Elite features a slim, angled neck, contour-fit, extra gentle bristles and a unique ergonomic, lightweight handle.

Sonic Technology
Inspired by the technologies of much more expensive dental equipment, Sonicare toothbrushes create a dynamic fluid cleaning action that works like tiny, but powerful sonic waves. These waves dislodge plaque that isn't normally reachable by a manual brush, or the oscillating or rotating movement of other power brushes. In fact, dynamic fluid cleaning action can actually make it easier to clean plaque below the gum-line. The bristles on a Sonicare play an important part as well. Their high velocity movement creates the dynamic fluid cleaning action, while allowing for direct contact with each tooth. Sonicare's bristles are also designed to be extra gentle on teeth and gums.

Smartimer is the automatic shut-off feature in your Sonicare brush that helps encourage you to brush for two minutes, which is the dental professional recommended brushing time. It's simple -- after two minutes, your Sonicare shuts off. If at any time during brushing you momentarily stop the brush to rinse or apply more toothpaste, the Smartimer pauses its timing so that you can pick up where you left off. Although two minutes is recommended for optimal results, you can always stop or restart the brush at any time by pressing the power button. Whenever the handle is placed in the charger, the Smartimer automatically resets to ensure a full brushing cycle the next time you use it. The Smartimer also automatically resets itself if you stop your Sonicare toothbrush for longer than 45 seconds.

Because the sensation created by Sonicare's dynamic fluid action is unique, Sonicare has a feature that lets your gums get accustomed to it over the first 12 to 14 uses. All Sonicare models come with the Easy-start feature activated, which helps you adjust to brushing with Sonicare. The Easy-start feature is active on your brush if you hear 2 beeps immediately after turning on your Sonicare. Once you reach optimal brushing power you will no longer hear the double beeping at the beginning of your brushing routine.

Programmable Quadpacer
The 7500's programmable Quadpacer makes sure that you brush all four quadrants of your mouth evenly and thoroughly. At 30-second intervals (30, 60 and 90 seconds for a 2-minute brushing cycle), you will hear a short beep and a pause in brushing action. This is your signal to move to the next section of your mouth. Quadpacer makes it easy to clean all areas of the mouth equally well. Because the 7500's Quadpacer is programmable, you can add an additional 30 second interval for problem areas of your teeth and gum-line. The programmable Quadpacer is great for targeting those troublesome areas that require more conscientious brushing.

Deluxe Recharge Gauge
Anytime the toothbrush handle is charging, the green charge indicator LEDs will blink in a rising pattern. The relative height of the pattern indicates the battery's approximate percentage of charge. When the battery reaches full charge, the blinking LEDs are replaced by a steady glow of the entire LED array. Meanwhile, a blinking yellow LED warns you that fewer than three brushings remain on the current charge.

Dual Speed Control
This feature lets you set the brushing power to work with your needs. Choose normal speed for optimal plaque removal and reduced speed for gentle cleaning of sensitive areas.

What's in the Box
Sonicare Elite toothbrush with two brush heads, charger base with easy-wrap cord, brush head holder, and compact travel case.

Three years ago, I threw away my Oral B for a Sonicare, and I thought the Sonicare was far and away better than my Oral B. The one dislike, however, was the relatively large head design, which made it a little difficult to reach the rear teeth. About two weeks ago, I got a mailer from the people at Sonicare, announcing their "new and improved" Sonicare Elite model. The ad said the new head design was angled, and featured a new design that clinical tests showed improved cleaning by about 20 percent over the older model. So, I bought it; literally. And after the first use, there is little doubt that the new Sonicare Elite is everything it's said to be. The new angled head and brush design make reaching every tooth easy. And the powerful sonic brush strokes leave your teeth feeling like you've just had a cleaning at the dentists office. This is one amazing toothbrush! Honestly, I don't know why my dentist recommends Sonicare so highly, because the better oral health it provides obviously is cutting into his business. The price is a little high for the 7500 model. The lower model is really a better value, since it includes all the functional features of the 7500. This is just a truly amazing power toothbrush!

I love the Sonicare toothbrush. I like the way it makes my mouth feel after brushing, but I would like to address this question to the Phillips folks: Other than simple greed, is there any other reason why you would design, market and sell a $100.00 toothbrush that must be thrown away when its rechargeable batteries lose their ability to hold a charge? Is there some reason that you don't include this information in your advertising of the product? And as far as a single charge lasting up to two weeks of "normal" brushing, this is a bit of advertising hyperbole at best. While carefully following the initial charging instructions with my two toothbrushes, I have rarely gotten more than a weeks use (brushing twice a day for 2 minutes each session) from either battery. It is a nice product, but it would be better if you could slap a couple of rechargeable nicads in the handle when the old batteries no longer hold a charge rather than throwing the whole thing away.

I stumbled across this review googling another matter. Guess I should be fair to the Phillips folks and revise my initial assessment. The original review was written in 2006, and as of February 6, 2012, I am still using both toothbrushes, although I alternate use and charge cycles. A five year life on the units makes the initial cost much more reasonable, and I believe that the cost for new a new unit has come down a few bucks in the intervening years. Now about the issue of those replacement brushes........

As a dentist, I have tried this toothbrush as well as other electric toothbrush, such as Oral-B. Unlike other rotary toothbrush, this one is unique because of its high frequency of brushing strokes(31,000/min). It is more efficient than other similiar products.
However, I believe that a regular toothbrush can clean as well as any electric toothbrush. It's like driving a car with automative transmission vs manual. Both can take you to the same destination. Electric toothbrush does make one's life easier if one spends the time to use it correctly. And an electric toothbrush's coolness provides some motivation.
Sonicare is a fine product, but it does come with a high price tag. If you are willing to spend the money, this is probably the best electric toothbrush out there. Take the time to brush your teeth, even if you are using a electric toothbrush.

Excellent product.

Pro's: - Major reason to buy Elite rather than (Sonicare) Advance: brush head on Elite has many fewer nooks and crannies that can foster bacteria. After I switched to Elite, I noticed how many hard to clean areas there were on the Advance brush head -- yuck.

- Teeth feel very "clean" after use. More so than with a disposable.

- Charge lasts an extremely long time. I've taken it on 8 day vacations without the base.

Con's: This might be largely due to how I use (abuse) the product, but I find the brush heads only last me a maximum of 3 months, instead of the suggested 6 months. Spoke to a Philips rep and they indicated I am applying way too much pressure. Makes sense, I'll be more gentle, but still not sure I'll make 6 months.

Advisory note: If you use a peroxide/baking soda toothpaste, make extra sure to keep the handle clean. The chemical composition of the toothpaste can actually cause the plastic handle to crack over time! Philips is aware of this and has adjusted the makeup of the plastic. Nevertheless, I did experience this on the Elite (issue resolved satisfactorily).

I have what I call PTDSD (Post Traumatic Dental Stress Disorder). I have horrible teeth that require lots of fillings and root canals. The dental work with novacaine can be bad enough and the cleanings themselves can be such an event! (and I have one of the best dentists around) Since Sonicare offers a 28 day, money-back guarantee, I bought this toothbrush four weeks before my teeth cleaning appointment.
The features of the toothbrush are great! After just the first use, my teeth felt awesome! I was worried the constant vibration in my mouth would be annoying or painful but it wasn't. It is preprogrammed to gradually increase to full speed during the first week you use it. It also has a button so you can keep in on the lower speed setting if that's your preference. You get used to the movement but it can take a few times to remember to keep the toothbrush in your mouth when it's on - or you constantly clean the mirror of splattered toothpaste. The size and design are comfortable and effective. The charge indicator and plastic travel box make it a breeze to take with you on trips. It has a built in timer that keeps track of the dentist-recommended 2 minutes you are supposed to spend brushing your teeth. It breaks the two minutes into 30 second intervals so you spend an equal amount of time on each section of your mouth.
So how did the cleaning go??? The hygenist said I was almost completely plaque and tartar free (honestly, I need to floss more). The toothbrush proved itself worth the investment. It would be an even greater investment for a couple or family because you can buy one Sonicare and then as many brush heads as needed.
Conclusion: the cost of the toothbrush pays for itself in the money (and stress) you'll save from dental appointments.
