Review: Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Rechargeable Sonic Toothbrush
In Operation: Philips Sonicare DiamondClean
As the toothbrush is sonic the teeth brushing experience feels different and obviously works differently. It is unlike manual brushing, requiring less effort, but is also quite unlike the electric rotary brushes available. A thoughtful touch is the easy-start operation which builds up the motor speed over the first fourteen brushings (assuming a brushing lasts at least one minute). If you have never used a sonic toothbrush before this will help you adjust to the sensation.
There are a number of safety instructions attached to the toothbrush which should be read and understood prior to operation. In particular instructions on the safe disposal (or recycling) of the device, including the removal of the Lithium Ion battery, cautions relating to the charging stand where the guidance reads “Keep the plugged-in charging base away from water. Do no place or store it over or near water contained in a bathtub, basin, etc.” and the guidance goes on to warn “Do not use the toothbrush in the bath or shower.”
The DiamondClean does a good job of teeth cleaning, and after a few weeks of use, this reviewers teeth certainly felt a lot better and whiter. However, it isn’t always thorough between the teeth so the recommendation would be to use it in conjunction with the previously reviewed Philips Rechargeable AirFloss; the combination should be quite effective.
