The Philips Sonicare E-Series Replacement Brush Head HX7003 has been to ensure that users have the best possible mouth cleaning experience.
Each brush head has a slim and contoured neck so it can access and clean hard to reach areas in the mouth. Also, each Sonicare E-Series Brush Head has contoured and extra soft bristles to ensure deep cleaning without damaging the gum line.
Although there are various similar products in the market today, a lot of people still choose to use a Philips Sonicare E-Series Brush Heads, and they have a good reason to do so.
In a study conducted in Northwestern University, results showed that people who used Sonicare over a period of 6 months had better oral health than those who used other brands of a toothbrush.
The study also said that long-term use of Sonicare is effective in reducing inflammation caused by gingivitis.
- Bristles are tapered, extra soft and contoured
- Neck designed to be slim angled to clean hard to reach areas
- Package includes 3 brush heads
Philips Sonicare E-Series Replacement Brush Heads are compatible with:
- Sonicare Advance
- Sonicare Elite
- Sonicare Essence, e.g., Philips Sonicare Essence 5300
- Sonicare Advance
It is best to replace your brush head every three months for optimum oral cleaning. The package of the E-Series Head comes in three which means you will be able to have excellent oral health for up to 9 months.
Where To Buy?
Replacement brush heads can be expensive. If you are getting the Philips Sonicare E-Series Replacement Heads, you can make sure that you will be able to save money as you will not need to go to your dentist as often. This product might be available in your local stores, but you can buy it online cheaper!
Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Brush Heads are the new brush heads that come with the latest Philips power toothbrush, the Sonicare DiamondClean.
DiamondClean Standard and Compact brush heads
There are 2 DiamondClean replacement brush head models available – the Standard Brush Head (manufacturer code HX6063/64 (old) and HX6064/65 (new) for white and HX6062 for black model) and Compact Brush Head (manufacturer code HX6072/66).
As you can guess from the product names, the main difference is the brushing head size. The compact head is better suited for people with smaller mouth – mostly children and women.
I have read numerous reports stating that compactly sized heads are doing a better job cleaning hard to reach areas of your mouth, so choosing the brush with the compact head can be a wise choice for men as well.
I suggest you try both sizes and then chose the one that does a better job or just ask your dentist for advice.
