You know what it’s like when you find a good thing??!! 

You stick with it! 

I was first introduced to the Philips Sonicare FlexCare system back in the fall of 2011. It took me a little while to finally take the plunge and get used to the tickle. For a while I had the use the sensitive setting because my gums were terrible and always bled. But I was determined, after all, my dentist had been spouting its praises for years.

Since using the Philips Sonicare Flexcare+ I’ve seen a huge improvement in my gums – no more bleeding – and in the amount of plaque – little to no plaque. In the 40 years I’ve had my teeth, they’ve never been healthier, says my Dentist!

Can you spot the differences? 
My dentist can!

Now I’m kicking things up a notch. I’m currently trying out the new Philips Sonicare Platinum Rechargeable Toothbrush. This baby is said to remove up to 7x more plaque between those hard-to-reach areas and trust me, with my mouth… there are quite a few of those!

NEW InterCare Brush Head provides exceptional inter-dental cleaning and gum care, with bristles that are designed to perform specific tasks:

  • Light green bristles reach between teeth to remove plaque
  • Dark green bristles gently and effectively remove plaque along the gum line
  • White bristles polish and clean tooth surface
  • Blue reminder bristles fade when a replacement is needed.

Customized Brushing System includes a total of 9 possible personalized brushing experiences.

Suggested retail price: $199.99

Stick around, I’ll be posting my full review shortly. But I’ll give you a little hint… add this toothbrush to your Christmas Wish List!

My dentist wasn’t lying – this rechargeable toothbrush is well worth it! Your teeth and your dentist will thank me. 🙂
