Pros & Cons
Philips Sonicare DiamondClean uses powerful Sonic technology to clean teeth with up to 31,000 brush strokes per minute. Sweeping motions drive fluids deep into the tight spaces between your teeth and along your gum line, resulting in a cleaner, healthier mouth. The DiamondClean naturally results in whiter teeth, improved gum health and better plaque removal than a manual toothbrush. It is clinically proven to improve gum health in just 2 weeks. The gentle brushing action helps prevent gum recession and removes more plaque in hard to reach areas compared to a manual toothbrush. It is proven to remove coffee, tea, tobacco or red wine stains. The brush heads (included) snap onto the slim, ergonomic handle for easy replacement and optimal hygiene. The DiamondClean offers 5 unique cleaning modes – Clean: Two-minute standard mode for a full mouth clean, White: Gently lifts surface stains to whiten teeth, Polish: Brightens and polishes teeth for a luminous smile, Gum Care: Three-minute mode helps improve gingival health and Sensitive: More gentle motion for sensitive teeth and gum health. An illuminated display indicated the selected mode and becomes invisible when power is off.
This brush also features two types of timers – Smartimer: encourages brushing for full 2 minutes and Quadpacer: beeps in 30 seconds to ensure all four quadrants are covered. DiamondClean's unique charging glass features the latest in conduction technology as it charges the toothbrush while resting in the glass, which can also be used for mouth rinsing by removing it from the base. Featuring a rechargeable lithium-polymer battery, the brush lasts up to three weeks (or 42 uses) on a single charge. A battery indicator light on the toothbrush illuminates when power is running low. This innovative travel case allows you to take your Sonicare anywhere - just connect the case to your laptop via USB or plug it into a wall outlet for Sonicare's best cleaning on the go!
Some reviewers reported problems with the main control button being located right where the brush is held, as it accidentally turns the brush off in mid cycles. Also some complained that the new models are not compatible with older model brush heads and a little wider bristle brush head would be an added advantage.
Overall, the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean has diamond shaped medium stiffness bristles to effectively yet gently scrape away plaque. The Sonicare DiamondClean is definitely a recommended purchase not only for its exceptional cleaning features but also for its unbeatable price, 2 years limited warranty and 100% money back guarantee.
