Philips Sonicare FlexCare

Toothbrush and PhilipsGuess What? I’m making the switch… back to Philips Sonicare! Yep, I used to be an exclusive user of a Philips Sonicare FlexCare toothbrush, and loved it. Why the stray? Due to much traveling, I opened a couple fresh manual brushes and the frugal {?} me decided to just use them until it was time to toss them. Really, is my dental health worth $3-$4? What was I thinking?!

After all, even my dentist complimented me on my tooth and gums after switching to a Philips electric toothbrush. My own dentist saw the results and was so impressed! Not only that, I loved that clean feel that I got from using an electric toothbrush, there’s just nothing like it. So, these manuals just aren’t cutting it, it’s not the same and my dental health has suffered. Thanks to Mom Central Canada, I am so excited {my teeth are too!} to be switching BACK to a Philips Sonicare FlexCare+ toothbrush, and will report back in a few weeks with my final thoughts.

My gums were bleeding like crazy she only cleaned with the ultrasonic cleaner and couldn’t finish with the pik. I have to go back in August for another cleaning and one small cavity. I bet if I had this toothbrush my gums would be much tougher and I wouldn’t have tartar (which starts off as plaque). Oh yea My Hygienist ended up lecturing me on my gums. I feel so guilty about my mouth. I was in serious pain when she did my cleaning too.
