However, it is troublesome to prepare various goods and use them properly. So, this time, I would like to try Philips' electric toothbrush "Sonicare", which also has a whitening function and a brush for the tongue.
Actually, I am a toothbrush user who is praised by dentists every time I have a medical examination. To be honest, I am confident in hand brushing, but Sonic Care thoroughly removes plaque between teeth and back teeth that are difficult to reach by the "sonic water flow" generated from ultra-high speed vibration and wide amplitude movement. It's called. As expected, it is not possible to manually generate a sonic stream, so it will have a considerable effect on the minds of hand polishers.
◆ Use "Sonicare Diamond Clean"
This time I used the top model "Sonicare Diamond Clean". In addition to the newly developed brush head, this model also includes stylish accessories.
The main body size when the brush head is attached is H256 x D31 x W28 mm. It weighs 135g (4.76oz) and doesn't bother you even if you hold it with one hand.
ON / OFF and mode switching can be operated with the touch of a button at hand. In addition to "clean" and "sensitive" for normal polishing, there are five mounting modes: "polish" and "white" that remove stains and lead to natural whiteness and shine, and "gum care" that cares for gums. Sensitive mode is recommended for people who are not familiar with electric toothbrushes or who are not good at vibration.
The included brush heads are "Diamond Clean", "Intercare", and "Tongue Brush". The diamond clean brush has a high density of brush bristles with diamond-shaped tips.
When you press the button and select the mode, the vibration starts, so lightly touch it against your teeth and slide it. It changes the rhythm every 30 seconds and informs you, polishes up, down, left and right, and finishes in a total of 2 minutes. Toothpaste tends to be habitual depending on your dominant hand, so it is a good guide for brushing in a well-balanced manner.
Compared to the electric toothbrush that happened to be at home for about 1,000 yen, Sonicare has a much higher frequency! For example, there was a difference between lovers flirting and tickling each other and everyone tickling in a school trip punishment game.
◆ Compared with hand polishing
By the way, the most important thing is, after all, "Can you remove plaque properly?" So, I checked it with a test drug for children that gets colored in response to plaque.
After putting the liquid in your mouth , polish in normal mode without looking in the mirror for 2 minutes. There is no unpolished residue, and the plaque that was reacting to the boundary between the teeth and gums can be removed cleanly.
By the way, this is the result of polishing with my favorite item "DENT.EX Systema 44M". This is also quite good.
Both of them look like they can be dropped, and the time required is about 2 minutes, which is the same. However, when I touched my teeth, it made a difference again. Both are slippery, but the Soniquea was at a level that seemed to make a squeak when touched with a finger, like a polished wine glass.
◆ Care for bad breath with a tongue brush
Next, try using the included tongue brush. According to the company, about 80% of the causes of bad breath are "dirty tongue". Dirt easily collects on the tongue, which has an uneven surface, and it is important to remove it properly as a measure against bad breath.
Sonic Care's tongue brush has more than 200 micro irregularities on the surface, and it seems to gently and effectively remove dirt on the tongue. It's a little tickling, but I felt that using it before bedtime would reduce the stickiness of my mouth when I woke up the next morning.
◆ Fashionable charging method
The main body is also a stylish Sonicare, but the charging method is also fashionable. Simply place a special glass (which can also be used for gargling) on the charging stand and stand the electric toothbrush to charge it.
It seems difficult to secure space when putting a glass with a cord in the washroom, but in fact it does not need to be charged even after using it for a week, so I think it is okay to put it in another place.
◆ If you are not confident in brushing your teeth, please do!
Personally, once used, it's a reliable product that makes me worried about returning to hand polishing. It is especially recommended for people who are not good at brushing teeth and are not confident that their cavities are pointed out every time they go to the hospital. Isn't it a merit that other companies don't have much that you can do everything from brushing your teeth to tongue care by changing the head? By changing the head between family members, it seems that everyone's oral care can be entrusted with peace of mind.
