Why Philips Sonicare?

philips sonicare

The multiple cleaning modes have been reported as one thing enjoyed by the users of the Philips Sonicare electric toothbrushes. For instance, the FlexCare line has “Clean” mode for thorough brushing, “Sensitive” mode for sensitive cleaning, and the “Massage” mode for a stimulating brush.

In addition, another thing that has been asserted as one of the main reasons for the satisfaction of the electric toothbrushes from Philips is its handle. Many of them are equipped with an intelligent design making it easy to hold, even if your hands are wet.

Another important feature of the toothbrushes from Philips is the patented Sonic innovation, which increases its cleaning efficiency to promote overall mouth health. Because of this innovation, the gap between the teeth and the gum line is cleaned thoroughly, which results in the prevention of the buildup of plaque.

There are also electric toothbrushes from Philips that are made specifically for kids. It is easy to operate so that kids will always be motivated to practice proper oral hygiene. To add, it has brushes and functions that are ideal for the sensitive teeth of your child and their special needs.

That’s right! There are many benefits your kids can get from using the electric brush!

The latest model of Sonicare For Kids has Bluetooth connectivity and several features that make brushing more fun. Kids toothbrush also has specially designed smaller sized brush heads.

Here is my review of Philips Sonicare for Kids for you to check out.


  • Modes – 2
  • Speed – up to 31,000 brush movement/min
  • Battery life – 14 days
  • Bluetooth – yes

Essence 5600 and DailyClean 1100

philips sonicare essence 5600 blue in bathroomIf you have seen the best electric toothbrush list, I am updating every month you probably know that Philips Sonicare Essence 5600 toothbrush has been among the Amazon’s best-selling toothbrushes for years.

The obsolete 5300 model and current 5600 model are the only remaining models with old E-series replacement brushes.

This summer Philips has introduced the new Sonicare DailyClean 1100 with a similar set of features but using the modern Click-on brush heads.


  • Modes – 1
  • Speed – up to 31,000 brush movement/min
  • Battery life – 14 days
  • Bluetooth – no

Essence+ and DailyClean 2100

philips Sonicare DailyClean 2100Sonicare Essence+ is an updated version of the Essence 5600.

It also has an old type NiMH battery and a limited set of basic features.

The most significant difference between old Essence 5300/5600 and new Essence+ is the brush heads used. The new model uses current type SnapOn heads.

In an attempt to move away from the Essence model name this toothbrush has been rebranded as Sonicare DailyClean 2100.

The brush is available in 50 shades of grey. I mean – 3 shades of blue:

  • Mid Blue HX3211/17
  • Dark Blue HX3211/33
  • Light Blue HX3211/02


  • Modes – 1
  • Speed – up to 31,000 brush movement/min
  • Battery life – 10 days
  • Bluetooth – no

2 Series

Philips Sonicare 2 Series toothbrush on bathroom sinkThe Philips Sonicare 2 Series Plaque Control toothbrush is an entry-level dental care tool with one brushing mode and no extra accessories.

It has a 2-minute timer but no Quadpacer, so the user has to try to split the brushing time between the upper and lower teeth.

This model is being phased out, and I suggest to check out the new ProtectiveClean 4100 with more advanced features.

8 color options are available:

  • Black HX6211/07
  • Blue/White HX6211/07
  • Coral HX6211/47
  • Coral/White Coral/White
  • Deep Blue HX6211/92
  • Emerald Aqua HX6211/91
  • Guacamole HX6211/48
  • Steel Blue HX6211/46


  • Modes – 1
  • Speed – up to 31,000 brush movement/min
  • Battery life – 14 days
  • Bluetooth – no

3 Series

Philips Sonicare 3 Series Gum Health on bathroom sinkThe Philips Sonicare 3 Series Gum Health electric toothbrush is a slightly more advanced variation of 2 Series model.

It has the same single brushing mode, but it can be dialed up and down in 3 intensity levels (some say – speeds).

The 3 Series brush features newer Li-Ion batteries that can be charged faster and provide longer 3-week battery life.

This brush is available in 2 colors:

  • White HX6631/24
  • White/Persian Green HX6631/02


  • Modes – 1 (3 intensities)
  • Speed – up to 31,000 brush movement/min
  • Battery life – 21 days
  • Bluetooth – no


Philips Sonicare EasyClean on bathroom sinkPhilips Sonicare EasyClean was launched in Summer 2011. It looked like the manufacturer designed this brush as a replacement for Sonicare Essence.

Similar features with some extra bells and whistles, similar price range. But EasyClean is almost obsolete, but Essence is still going strong.


  • Modes – 1 (3 intensities)
  • Speed – up to 31,000 brush movement/min
  • Battery life – 14 days
  • Bluetooth – no



HealthyWhite and HealthyWhite+

At one point you might get confused because there were several HealthyWhite toothbrushes available in stores – HealthyWhite HX6732, HealthyWhite HX6711, regular HealthyWhite, and even HealthyWhite Premium edition.

Now this model is being phased out. There is only one model available – the HealthyWhite+ 5 Series.

You can learn more about HealthyWhite toothbrush by reading my Philips Sonicare HealthyWhite+ review.


  • Modes – 2 (3 intensities)
  • Battery life – 21 days
  • Speed – up to 62,000 brush movement/min
  • Bluetooth – no

FlexCare Platinum and Platinum Connected

Philips Sonicare FlexCare Platinum Connected with sanitizerJust like the HeathyWhite series, the Sonicare Flexcare once was an extensive model line with models like Flexcare, Flexcare Plus, and Flexcare Whitening Edition.

Then the Sonicare DiamondClean product line took over the higher end of the Sonicare model line. There is only 2 variations of Flexcare Platinum model out there – regular and Connected.

Here is the Philips Sonicare Flexcare Platinum review!


  • Modes – 3 (3 intensities)
  • Battery life – 14 days
  • Speed – up to 62,000 brush movement/min
  • Bluetooth – yes (Connected model)



Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 6100

The Sonicare ProtectiveClean is one of the recently launched model lines.

There are 3 models in the product line starting with the affordable ProtectiveClean 4100 with 1 brushing mode and going up to the ProtectiveClean 6500 with 3 modes and 3 intensities, BrushSync brush head technology and bundled charging travel case.

You will not find Bluetooth connectivity in any of the ProtectiveClean models.

Here is my comparison of Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean models.


  • Modes – up to 3 modes and 3 intensities depending on model
  • Battery life – 14 days
  • Speed – up to 62,000 brush movement/min
  • Bluetooth – no

Philips Sonicare ExpertClean is the latest sonicare model.

There are two models in the product line, the ExpertClean 7500 and ExpertClean 7300.

The cheaper ExpertClean 7300 has limited set of features compared to the 7500 model and is available in select markets where demand for more affordable models is higher.

The ExpertClean has Bluetooth connectivity, multiple brushing modes, and can sync with the brush heads using BrushSync technology.


  • Modes – 4 (3 intensities)
  • Battery life – 14 days
  • Bluetooth – Yes


DiamondClean Classic & Smart

Obsolete Models

A couple of important notes about the old Philips electric toothbrush models:

  • Elite is an old model. It is still available but only as a double pack of 2 toothbrushes
  • Xtreme and PowerUp are battery-powered brushes which means they are not rechargeable
  • FlexCare

Sonicare Powerup

Philips Sonicare Powerup The Philips Sonicare Powerup HX3631/06 is the only model using rechargeable batteries you can replace yourself.

It is worth mentioning that this model uses unique brush head HX3012/66 which currently is carried by a few retailers.

The brush itself is cheap, but you should stock up on replacement brushes.






FlexCare and FlexCare Plus

Philips Sonicare FlexCare Plus box contents on tableBefore the Sonicare Diamondclean was launched, the Philips Sonicare FlexCare Plus was the most feature-rich toothbrush in the manufacturer’s portfolio.

Now the FlexCare and FlexCare+ models have been discontinued.

If you can not decide if you need a FlexCare Plus or DiamondClean, read my comparison of DiamondClean vs FlexCare Plus.
