If you’re looking for a last minute Christmas gift, we at My Family Dentistry encourage you to consider one that can help your family members stay healthy in the coming year! Sonicare toothbrushes are among Dr. Wesley Mullins’s favorite dental products, and they make great gifts – the lucky recipient will enjoy a cleaner, fresher mouth for years to come.
Whether you are shopping for an adult or a child, a Sonicare toothbrush is a great option, and they’re widely available at retail stores nationwide. Read on for our Sonicare toothbrush review!
Sonicare Power Up Toothbrush
Sonicare’s basic toothbrush is the Power Up, which uses 15,000 strokes a minute to clean your teeth. Though it’s as easy to use as a manual toothbrush, the Power Up fits in more brush strokes in one day of use than you get with your manual toothbrush in a month. The benefits of all those extra brushstrokes include removing more plaque, improving the health of your gums, and preventing more cavities. The Power Up comes with a 2-year warranty, is safe for all dental work, and includes a 2-minute timer to help you brush for the dentist-recommended period of time.
However, the Power Up takes 2 AA batteries, so if you want a rechargeable version, you may want to consider the Sonicare Essence. It costs more, but one 24-hour charge lasts for 2 weeks of brushing.
Sonicare For Kids Toothbrush
If you want to encourage your kids to develop lifelong healthy dental habits, Sonicare’s For Kids toothbrush is an excellent choice. It includes a smaller, rounder, rubberized brush head to fit kids’ mouths and protect young teeth, 2 kid-friendly power modes, interchangeable fun design panels so kids can customize the toothbrush, and grips that fit both kids’ and parents’ hands so you can help your child brush effectively.
Not only does this toothbrush make dental hygiene more fun, but it actually helps develop better brushing habits. The For Kids has a timer that slowly adds brushing time over 90 days to help kids work up to brushing for a full 2 minutes, and it produces fun musical notes to help them pace their brushing.
Sonicare offers a number of other electric toothbrushes with options for whitening, pressure sensors, and an angled head to reach back teeth, as well as more brushing modes. Sonicare offers coupons for many of their products on the website, so it may not cost as much as you think to upgrade your toothbrush.
