Many of the known brands release their new dental products in the market by adding more features to its predecessors. Philips Sonicare Flexcare Plus HX6921/04 is a premium model from Philips in the electric toothbrush category. Most of the electric toothbrushes have similar features but what makes them apart from the rest is the performance and cost effectiveness. There are many variants of the product available in the Sonicare series, but Flexcare Plus deserves a recognition.
Design, Build, and Accessories
You don’t really need to think twice in choosing a Philips product if concerned about the quality and design. In terms of design and look, this toothbrush far excels many other products in comparison. The slim design gives it an elegant look. It almost weighs around 0.9 pounds, which is practically the lightest Philips Sonicare toothbrush. There may be a slight variation in the look of the product according to its variant, but the overall design remains the same. The brush gives a good grip at the back of the handle, making it easier to brush the teeth even if your teeth are wet.
The package includes a handle, gum health brush head, charger, and a travel case. The travel case is sturdy and very effective if you are planning to take it on a trip. It can easily accommodate the handle and brush head. However, there is no room for a charger, so if you are planning on a longer trip, then you may need to take the charger along with you.
The front side of the handle has a control panel with two buttons. One is the power button and other is for the operational modes. Below the buttons are different modes inscribed in the panel. Each of the selected modes will light up upon selection.
The ProResults gum health brush head is 6 times more effective in cleaning the teeth than a regular toothbrush and its round head ensures that operation is carried out covering each tooth.
This Sonicare electric toothbrush works on the sonic technology, which offers 31,000 strokes per minute, hence delivering ultimate brushing experience with complete removal of plaque and bacteria from the mouth.
The brush comes with an automatic timer of 2 minutes. Once you start the brush, it will automatically turn off after 2 minutes of brushing. Moreover, it also has a Quad pacer timer that will inform you at every 30 seconds interval to change the position of the brush to each of the respective quadrants. It is an average brushing time recommended by the dentist to get optimum results. Regular brushing with the toothbrush will guarantee excellent results in a matter of weeks. Philips claims of having whiter teeth in 2 weeks, but it depends on the condition of your teeth.
The brush is extremely easy to charge. All you need to do is place the brush handle on top of the charging unit and let it charge for 24 hours. Once, you have charged the device, it will last for at least 3 weeks, which is pretty amazing considering the slimmer body of the brush.
Another scintillating quality of the brush is its longevity. While, you may need to change the brush heads frequently, the brush handle can last for many years without any worry of malfunctioning. However, proper care is advised to ensure longer usage.
The brush offers five different modes namely Clean – for everyday cleaning, GumCare – for extra cleaning of gums with 3 minutes of brushing time, Refresh – ideal for quick sessions, Sensitive – for sensitive gums, and Massage – for gently stimulating the gums. Each of the modes works effectively well according to their functionality.
Brushing is an important habit that needs to be followed every day. Philips knows best when it comes to maintaining oral hygiene. The Flexcare Plus is a great model in the category of an electric toothbrush, only rivaled by the latest models in the market. This toothbrush will take care of all the dental needs, completely cutting out the work for you in the most convenient manner.
