Great toothbrush Phillips Sonicare Flexcare HX6912/21
The head of the toothbrush vibrates with high frequency and you don’t have to press hard on to get a clean feel.
One charge of the battery lasts a few days and a light indicator will show you the power bars remained so you can plan for your travel time and charge before hand.
Overall it is a great toothbrush from an users experience perspective.
Purchased in December 2018.
Very fast shipping, cost and brand very reliable.
This has replaced my old Sonic Care which lasted almost 8 years. Even though my old one didn't have the UV feature I'm assuming that should work as advertised - wasn't the main selling point, cost and brand was. Shipping was faster than normal which was great since my old one died the day before ( I ordered this because I saw the charging light blinking even though it had set on the base for over 24 hours).
Saying it feels like I just came from the dentist is an exaggeration - maybe my hopes were raised too much by other people's reviews. That said, I can tell I'm getting a significantly better tooth-brushing, so yay.
I haven't used the uv sterilizing function... Not sure it's actually worth it.
I was concerned about whether the sound would be too loud - I am sensitive about protecting my ears, but it's not too loud at all.
I have noticed that while charging, it emits a very faint high-pitch that is almost akin to what you hear if you have tinnitus. I just don't leave it plugged in all the time.
Shocked at how much of a difference this has made to my teeth
Absolutely amazing toothbrush. I’ve previously used Colgate electric toothbrushes and could no longer find replacement heads so decided to invest in an upgrade - I’m so glad I did!
This toothbrush cleans your teeth quickly and more effectively than anything else I’ve used.
I hardly ever have to charge it (maybe once every two months) and can source replacement heads easily when necessary.
Can not recommend this enough!!
Easy to travel with.Easy to clean.I'm seeing genuine improvement in dental health: sturdy, firm gums, tighter adherence at the tooth line, better brightening and shine. Amazed how much more effective this is, than my old rotating brush.
A capable enjoyable to use machine.
Purchased 3 weeks ago and am finding it preferable to the Oral B and Colgate Omron I was using. This model apparently has up to 62,000 vibrations per minute and gives a good clean and is gentle enough for me.
I find the smaller brush head preferable.
Could not ask for more
My oral health is good...feel free to ask my dentist, This was a Christmas gift to me from my children, l love the fact that l can sterilise the brush head with the sonic light, and the brush heads are all l have replaced in the 4 years l have had this brush, Yellow Pages say:- Let-your-fingers-do-the-walking.....well let the Sonic Brush Head do the cleaning
Efficient and quiet
This is my first electric toothbrush and I've been using it for about 2 years now. It's definitely an upgrade from using a manual and there are a few settings depending on what you prefer. It also comes which a sanitiser for the toothbrush head which I like.
This is my third Phillips Sonicare product and I’m happy with it. Paid a good price of $99 from Shaver Shop. I have to say I prefer the original model they released years ago, hated the Diamond Clean which is overpriced and stopped working after 12 months.
This product was a good replacement for the terrible Phillips Sonicare Diamond Clean. I’d recommend this product definitely over anything else on the market right now and don’t recommend the Diamond Clean, this does the same job.
Awesome electric toothbrush
I switched to this toothbrush after using another popular brand of electric toothbrush and manual toothbrushes. I tend to overbrush and use a little pressure and suffer from receding gums. I have been truly delighted with the Philips Sonicare toothbrush. I like the gentle nature of the brushing action. My teeth are so much whiter, less stains, gums are healthier. I can not recommend this toothbrush enough.
September 7th 2018 Update: Amazing clean
I've had electric tooth brushes before and the dentist comments that i tend to over brush. I was nervous in changing brands to the Philips but since using it for 4 months now, I am a lover of Philips Sonicare electric toothbrushes. My teeth are much quieter than using a standard toothbrush and another brand of electric toothbrush. The battery life is much longer as well!
It comes with two toothbrushes, the standard and compact size.
I love the compact size.
I can highly recommend this product.
Great toothbrush! Gentle and gives a lovely clean
I switched to this toothbrush from a manual toothbrush which a dentist had recommended as I had overbrushed and caused bad sensitivity. Since using this brush, my teeth feel cleaner, look whiter and haven't had any issues with sensitivity at all! Would highly recommend this toothbrush, charge seems to last for ages too.
I love the way it works
Although I don't feel much difference after the usage of the toothbrush, I love the way it works. Compared to the Oral B toothbrush, this toothbrush works more gently. I didn't feel the pain in the teeth. The only problem is the noise. It is quite noisy when it works.
Died after 2 years
I love all the features and the way the toothbrush cleans my teeth and also how it sanitises the brush heads but most disappointingly only worked for about 2 years. I previously had an OralB toothbrush which worked well for 8 years. For $200+ surely the toothbrush should have a longer life. Seriously considering going back to OralB.
Second one of these and its now died
Firstly let me say that this is a brilliant toothbrush. I also use the sanitiser every day and if you are going to spend this much on a toothbrush pay the bit extra for the sanitiser as I fully recommend the additional amount.
My disappointment however is quality. In the past 5 years I have spent approx $600 on toothbrushes with Philips (excluding heads) as this is now my second one. The first one started making a weird noise and wasn't vibrating properly days out of the warranty. So I bought the replacement and again loved it (same but revised design). Prior to this I had purchased Oral B's for about 15 years and made sure I bought the latest and greatest each time it was launched - until I tried the Philips ones - then I didnt need to upgrade as the one I had was brilliant.
My only grip with this is that I've spent a LOT of money and now I need to buy a replacement as this one has started to smell really awful (like a manky swamp) and now makes a weird noise (similar to my first one). Its like water has got inside somehow.
If you want a great toothbrush then I can't fault it - but for me, I won't be spending that amount again as the quality and expense (as they are lot more). Time to revisit Braun and see how they've improved.
Good toothbrush, but disappointing battery life
I purchased my Philips Sonicare Flexcare on November 6 2014, and have been using it regularly since and quite pleased with the product. However in January this year, just 2 months out of warranty I observed that the time between charges was reducing, from about two weeks to only a few days. I ignored this, but A few weeks later noticed that the toothbrush needed to be continuously charged otherwise the toothbrush would just die halfway through the brush; before the battery completely died out.
I am disappointed that this has happened just out of warranty, considering the hefty price I paid for this toothbrush. I am now stuck with a toothbrush that does not work, and a couple of new toothbrush heads that are of no use. From a trusted brand name like Philips I would have expected mileage way past the warranty.
Receded my gums!
This toothbrush was way too intense even on the lowest setting (sensitive) and using the sensitive head. It receded two of my teeth, despite using it as instructed by Philips. I would love to try another one with less intensity at some point when I have the spare cash. Had to throw this one out and wasted my $200+. Very disappointed :(
Best toothbrush by far
I work at a dental surgery and I am so passionate about sonicare the toothbrush sells itself it's the most amazing clean feeling and bleeding stopped within 2 weeks we use to sell that oral b thing and our patients have never been happier and I have never had so many compliments and thanks for recommending them sonicare ! BTW love the airflow and can't wait for the tongue cleaner
My first electric toothbrush and I couldn't be happier! I love the option of different sized heads, and the different brushing settings.
I always leave home feeling amazing now! Thanks!
Great improvement over Oral B
Really happy with this toothbrush. I've had bleeding gums since I was young and this toothbrush has help me reduce swelling but still gets in between teeth. This added to my flossing has made a great improvement!
Very happy with it. Didn't get the uv sanitizer option as, after reading reviews, don't believe it was worth the extra money. Teeth feel super clean after using, and like the different modes available to use.
