Philips Sonicare HX6972/10 FlexCare+ Rechargeable Toothbrush Overview

Philips has earned the reputation as the manufacturer of the number one recommended power toothbrush brand available on the market. Philips claims that their electronic toothbrush will remove more plaque than their nearest competitor which is the Oral-B toothbrush. They are able to make this claim because of their patented Sonicare technology. Sonicare is the term given to the cleaning pattern used on the Philips Sonicare HX6971/10 FlexCare+ rechargeable toothbrush. The cleaning pattern provides a greater sweeping range than any other toothbrush and will clean more plaque from your teeth.

The toothbrush has a very ergonomic design and it will rest easily in the palm of your hands while brushing. When in use the front of the handle will light up with indicators. When not in use the backlighting for these displays is hidden so that it has a very sleek and clean look. There are indicators for the remaining battery life, length of time spent brushing and for the current cleaning mode.

Every time you brush your teeth, you are removing food, plaque and germs from between your teeth and on your gums. Most people when the finish brushing, they will quickly rinse the toothbrush head in the water from the sink and put the toothbrush away. This does not remove the germs that remain on the toothbrush head. Philips provides a sanitiser unit with the Philips Sonicare HX6972/10 FlexCare+ rechargeable toothbrush. After brushing you remove the head and place it inside the sanitiser which will use UV light to clean the germs from the toothbrush head. This means you are not constantly brushing your teeth with a toothbrush that is covered in germs like you would if you used any of the competitor’s electronic toothbrushes. It takes about 10 minutes for the sanitiser to clean the toothbrush head and it will auto shut off when finished cleaning.

Philips provides a handy traveling case if you need to travel on holiday or for work. The charge on the Philips Sonicare HX9672/10 FlexCare+ rechargeable toothbrush lasts for about 3 weeks between charges.

Philips Sonicare HX6972/10 Toothbrush Pros

The Sanitiser is a unique selling point that is offered with the Philips Sonicare HX6972/10 FlexCare+ rechargeable toothbrush. Electronic toothbrushes can clean your teeth well but the sanitiser goes a step further by providing for cleaning of your actual toothbrush head.

Philips Sonicare HX6972/10 Toothbrush Cons

The recharging base of the Philips Sonicare HX6972/10 FlexCare+ rechargeable toothbrush is much wider than any of the competitors. While this means it is more stable, it also means that it takes up much more space in your bathroom. If countertop space in your bathroom is at a premium then this might seem to cramp the small space that you have available.
