Philips HX6731 Sonicare
Advantages: Quick, easy and painless to use
Disadvantages: Comes with 2 point adapter and only one head
Convenience is a driving factor in most of my purchases these days. That and efficiency, so you would wonder exactly how that can translate to the simple action of using a toothbrush. To many, an electric toothbrush is an extravagance. A device for people too lazy to do even the simplest of tasks. Ten years ago I might have agreed, but in that time I have discovered and continued to use a variety of the Philips Sonicare range. The latest being the HX6731/02
So what do you do with it I hear you ask? Simple, you just stick it in your mouth and it does the rest. Well almost, you move the head around inside your mouth and allow the cleaning cycle to run through. While I do make it sound simple, there is an instruction book that you should read to give you the exact method for total success in cleaning your teeth.
The whole procedure lasts a little under 2 minutes, which is not just some random time. This has been formulated by dentistry professionals as the time required for a full clean. The device has three settings to allow for greater control over your regime. The brush head is the standard size and shape of your normal toothbrush and remains static. It does not oscillate like a dentists' or an Oral B version.
It comes with an adapter for recharging but as with previous sonicare models I have used it comes with a two pin plug. Whether it is meant for European markets I don't know but it is a common complaint from consumers with multiple UK retailers, so you'll need an adapter. Perhaps one other slight drawback is that it only comes with one head. And they do change these models quickly. The reason this is my third version is not because others have broke, but because finding new heads was so difficult, so perhaps stock up on them if you intend to keep it for a while.
Charges last a couple of weeks with regular usage and take about twenty four hours to recharge. The set also comes with a travel case. I purchased mine for around £110 but at the moment you can pick one up on amazon.co.uk for around half that. My teeth have remained a consistently good shade of white having used these devices regularly in the past ten years along with mouthwash. Personally I would recommend this above teeth witening kits and procedures for long term and more cost effective results.
Summary: A device for cleaning your teeth with ease
