I am very particular about my oral hygiene, that’s why I’ve always been interested in toothbrushes, particularly on those electric and rechargeable ones.
I am always on the lookout for good and new electronic toothbrushes which can make my mouth healthier. However, with the full range of rechargeable toothbrushes available in the market, often choosing the best tooth brush is confusing.
This is why I decided to write reviews of the electronic tooth brushes that I’ve already tried and used.
In my reviews, I try to give comprehensive pros and cons report on specific brands and if it’s worth your money.
One of the best models I have tried out is Philips Sonicare FlexCare Plus rechargeable electric toothbrush from Philips. It was my Philips model of choice before the Sonicare DiamondClean was released.
So, read on to know my verdict on this model and if it’s worth your money.
Philips Sonicare FlexCare Plus Features

But with the FlexCare Plus toothbrush from Philips, I can truly attest that it delivers what it promises, with great results.
With its Patented Sonic Technology, using this toothbrush can thoroughly clean your teeth and gums, giving you a healthier mouth as if you had just gone to the dentist. The Sonic Technology is designed to get rid of those hard to reach plaques, which are otherwise cannot be achieved by manual tooth brushes.
Also, regularly using this toothbrush you will whiten your teeth because of its dynamic cleaning action that can remove teeth stains that are commonly caused by drinking coffee, tea, sodas, and others.

In line in giving you the best dental care, this toothbrush from Philips features five cleaning modes that will cater to every user’s needs.

For those with sensitive teeth and gums, the Sensitive Mode is for you.
And you can use the Massage Mode for gums stimulation.
The Philips SonicCare FlexCare Plus toothbrush also has brushing time tracker to help you know if you already achieved the time required for brushing. The tracker called the Smart Timer gives you two minutes to clean your teeth and gums and automatically stops once it strikes two minutes.
The QuadPacer, meanwhile, is a timer that splits your brushing tips in four 30 second chunks. Each chunk of time is for brushing one quadrant of your mouth, and you have covered all four.
This tooth brush is compatible with two types of brush heads, the Standard and the ProResults Compact.
