Philips Sonicare: high technology at the service of your teeth

Philips Sonicare electric toothbrushes excel in plaque removal and gum care. And for good reason !

“Caries affects more than a third of 6-year-olds, 45% of 12-year-olds and more than three-quarters of the adult population.” These figures, communicated in 2003 by the Ministry of Health and Prevention, are worrying. Especially when we know that this pathology is the number one cause of early tooth loss. And what is the main cause of this infection? Dental plaque, this bacterial biofilm that settles permanently in the oral cavity.

Yet, as the ministry points out, twice-daily brushing of the teeth eliminates the biofilm and thus prevents the formation of cavities provided, however, that this operation is carried out correctly, which is anything but trivial. For this, we brush the teeth vertically, separating the top and the bottom, and following a path to pass over all the teeth (external face and internal face). The operation takes a good two minutes if done correctly. It is also necessary to remember to apply the right pressure to avoid irritation of the gums.

The routine therefore requires a certain attention, yet it is often considered a chore carried out mechanically. And even when the task is seriously carried out, the result is not always convincing, as the insidious development of this cursed dental plaque shows.

So why not entrust this operation to an expert, in order to obtain optimal daily brushing and scientifically proven results, both in terms of plaque removal and gum care?

Sonicare : technology with spectacular results

Philips Sonicare electric toothbrushes are today a very good choice to take care of your teeth. No wonder their efficiency is impressive, if we compare them to manual toothbrushes.

Their excellence lies in technology Sonicare, constantly improved for more than 20 years. In operation, the brush performs a vibratory sweep with an amplitude of 4 to 10 mm from bottom to top, at a prodigious speed: more than 31,000 oscillations per minute! This sonic sweep causes the generation of microbubbles that pass between the teeth to reach the most inaccessible places. And the results are truly spectacular.

But the technology Sonicare is not solely responsible for these excellent results. The 9900 Prestige is indeed equipped witha sensor that warns the user in case of excessive pressurethus reducing the risk of irritation or trauma.
