I was given this toothbrush as a present, it is fantastic I have had no problems when visiting the dentist in the past two years, my teeth have never felt better and my dentist is pleased with the results too.
Two years ago my wife and I bought a Philips Sensi-flex electric toothbrush (HX 2550) and have been very pleased with its performance. However, recently we began to notice the battery was not holding its charge for too long. Well outside its guarantee period, I simply asked Philips if it was possible to purchase a replacement battery. Without a second thought they promptly replaced the whole toothbrush with their latest model. You couldn?t ask for better Customer Service. We will certainly buy other Philips products in future.
We were on the look out for an electric toothbrush after seeing them advertised on QVC. We went to Boots and they had the above brush on offer for half price, so instead of being £56.00 it was £28.00 Bargain. Well it is brilliant. It has 2 speeds including a sensitive setting, 2 brush heads supplied and a family container for holding upto 4 brush heads. It has a timer so you know you have brushed your teeth for long enough, which is about 2 minutes (This is the recommended length of time you should spend brushing) There is an empty charge indicator and the sensiflex controlled pressure system. The brushes are nice and soft and your teeth feel so much cleaner after using this than with an ordinary tooth brush. I suffer with terrible bleeding gums after having Jack and its due to not paying attention to my gums, this brush does not let you press too hard onto your teeth or gums therefore they don't bleed as much afterwards. I am not sure that I would of payed £56 for a tooth brush but it was well worth the £28.00 we paid. You can get additional brush heads at £8.75 for 2, which is not too bad really.
