The Philips Sonicare Toothbrush is designed to brush your teeth without too much effort on your part. Use this instructional video to get started with your Philips Sonicare Toothbrush.
Instructions to use your Philips Sonicare Toothbrush
1. Wet the bristles of the brush head 2. Apply a small amount of toothpaste 3. Place the bristles against your teeth at a 45° angle, towards the gum line 4. Press the power button to start brushing 5. Apply light pressure and move the brush head slowly across the teeth in a small back-and-forth motion, allowing the brush to do the work 6. Continue this motion throughout your brushing cycle
Some Philips Sonicare Toothbrush models come with a Quadpacer feature. If you have the Quadpacer feature, you can divide your mouth into four sections (see image step 6). The Quadpacer will vibrate intermittently to tell you to move on to the next section.
To avoid an empty battery, you can always leave your toothbrush on the charger between brushings.
Note: Do not scrub. To maximise, only apply light pressure and let the toothbrush do the brushing for you
How do I know when to replace the brush head
Brush heads become less effective after 3 months of use. If your Sonicare toothbrush is equipped with BrushSync technology, it will track the wear of your smart brush head.
The BrushSync feature measures:
The overall pressure you apply while brushing
The total time you have brushed with your brush head
The handle will let you know once your brush head is no longer effective and it is time to replace it. The handle's replacement reminder will blink amber and you will hear a series of beeps and tones. Your toothbrush comes with this feature already activated.
If you are not going to use your Philips Sonicare Toothbrush for an extended period of time, unplug the charger from the wall socket, clean it and store it in a cool and dry place away from direct sunlight.
