Sonicare FlexCare+ – Making the Switch {Giveaway}

My toothbrush has a UV Brush Sanitizer that kills up to 99% of bacteria and viruses! Does yours? I’m assuming no, so read on for your chance to win one.

That’s not all my Philips Sonicare FelxCare+ does. It seems to have technology more advanced than my iPod, yet it’s so user-friendly. Here are some highlights of this magic-mouth-wand that I particularly appreciate.

  • There are five setting that can be used for various purposes:
    • Clean: a two-minute timed setting for a complete teeth clean. Quadpacer intervals of 30 seconds each to ensure each quadrant (upper outside and inside, lower outside and inside) gets the proper amount of brushing. What’s even cooler is that the brush is set to vibrate a little lighter on the first 14 uses so your gums can adjust.
    • Gum Care: effectively reaches between the teeth and along the gumline
    • Refresh: a one-minute timed setting to freshen up between full brush routines
    • Sensitive: a softer mode for those with sensitive teeth and gums
    • Massage: a gentle setting to effectively massage the gums. It improves gum-health in two weeks
  • Battery power that lasts three weeks; that’s 42 full two-minute brushes
  • Up to 31,000 brush strokes per minute
  • Angled brush head that makes it easier to reach the back teeth and removes plaque in the usually hard to reach places


I’ve been using the Soincare FlexCare+ for just over a week now and here are the benefits I’ve noticed:

First, I received my toothbrush from Mom Central and Philips the day after my most recent dentist appointment.

I had a clean bill of teeth-health from the dentist, however I was told that I need to concentrate on my right-inside-bottom teeth more when brushing. It’s the spot (if you’re right handed) that is the most difficult to get with a manual brush. You need to twist your wrist just so and if you don’t get it right, you neglect an entire row of teeth.

Apparently I wasn’t getting the twist action down but since I received the recommendation and the FlexCare+ it’s become so easy for me to reach that spot. All my teeth have that ‘just-left-the-dentist-clean’ feeling . I also have a really good sense of clean by using the UV sanitizer. It’s so easy to use. It’s a part of the charger and base. You pop the brush head off, place it on the provided drip tray, close the door and press a button. Cleaning only take 10 minutes, so next time you’re ready to brush it’s complete. Peace of mind!

I am so happy I decided to Make the Switch with Sonicare. I’m going to be watching to see if I can keep that dentist-clean feeling and I hope to keep those pesky coffee stains at bay.
