How To Use The Sonicare Plaque Control

Plaque Defense Electric Toothbrush is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now have cleaner teeth Have previously only used a manual tooth brush for over 60 years. This is my first electric tooth brush and it is achieving my goal of having my teeth feeling cleaner than before.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hooked Bit of an electric toothbrush sceptic. Bought this brand two years ago and to be honest - it is a very odd feeling at first with the way the brush works. But i was conpletely hooked as it honestly feels like a full dental clean every time (as long as i last the two minutes). Top shelf brush. Only catch is the heads are a complete rip-off!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Standard brush. This is a basic brush and has no additional features, such as clean or soft functions. We only bought this product as the previous two higher end models lasted less than a couple of years and then the attachment component failed. Electric toothbrushes with additional functions are over-the-top with prices, so we decided just to purchase this absolutely basic model. This model also seems to loose the charge very quickly, so we have it constantly on the small charge stand, whereas others we have had before lasted about a week or two without the need to charge, perhaps this basic model has a smaller battery?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Toothbrush Great toothbrush, works well and really feels like it's cleaning. Only problem I have is that the packaging when I bought it said I'd get 2 free toothbrush heads when I registered it, but when I opened it up the offer had expired 2 years ago - there was no expiry date on the external packaging.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple to use and efficient First electric toothbrush. Would have given five stars if not for the weak battery life. Battery level indicator comes on after 4 or 5 days (twice daily usage) even though have already fully charged (48 hours).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a great product I have used a similar old model (HX6511) and that used to be great. Plaque Defense is not good in battery life and the bristles starts changing their shapes within one month of use. Also the brush just stopped charging within one year of use(got in in September 2016). I never had such issues with HX6511.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Charging issues Initially the brushes my wife and I purchased worked well, then one charger stopped working closely followed by the other one, so not that impressed only about a year old.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Charging issues after only one year I had the previous version of this toothbrush and was really happy with it. However, this one has stopped charging after only one year! Not good enough considering the price. Even though I was always happy with how well it cleans my teeth, I will not be replacing it or buy a more expensive model as that could easily happen with the other models as well. Besides, the prices for the other models are ridiculous for a toothbrush. Very disappointed. Will have to find a different brand to try now. Bad form, Philips. I expected much better from you.

I am interested in your Philips sonicare plaque defence electric toothbrush at the current price $79.00. There seems to be many other toothbrushes to buy when this brush wears out. Which one fits this model, as I cannot see one that is the same.
