Benefits

If you’re a long-time user of a manual toothbrush, then the Philips Sonicare’s entry-level electric toothbrush would be a good transition for you.

Its ProResults Plaque Control brush head is designed with curved bristles conform to the shape of your teeth. Its high bristle count helps maintain consistent contact with your teeth for a dynamic fluid action of up to 31,000 brush strokes per minute.

With the long power tuft at the top of this Sonicare toothbrush, you no longer need to wait for your dentist to get rid of tartar in hard-to-reach areas. In addition to removing plaque six times better than your manual toothbrush, you get that fresh-from-the-dentist feeling with every brush.

Its non-slip textured and soft-touch rubberized handle assures an improved grip while its fading blue bristles help to remind you when it’s time to replace the brush head, which is easy to the most novice user, thanks to its snap-on design.

This toothbrush also comes with a thicker handle and rubberized foot that prevents slipping when placed on your bathroom porcelain or glass countertop.

Its NiMh battery is an advantage, especially for people on the go, since it brings two weeks of performance before recharging. The small light near the base will give you the indication when it’s time to recharge your battery.

Disadvantages

Philips Sonicare 2 Series Plaque Control Rechargeable Toothbrush is one of the most basic and affordable electric toothbrushes from Philips Sonicare.

This brush comes with an easy-start feature which allows your teeth to adjust to the vibration by starting with a low speed at first, and then gradually increasing with use. However, the intensity of the vibration may not be comfortable to every user.

Some users find the vibration too soft and disable the easy-start feature while others who find the vibration too intense resort to reverting to their old brushes.

Unlike the more expensive models with three intensity settings, this electric toothbrush comes with only one brushing mode. In addition, unlike the other high-end models, this Sonicare unit comes with no UV sanitizing base or USB outlet charging case.

It does have a travel charger though, which doesn’t take up much space.

The ProResults Plaque Control Brush Head is relatively small compared to other Sonicare brushes as well as the average manual brushes. If the compact size doesn’t cut it and you want a bigger replacement, the cost of genuine Sonicare brush heads can cost a lot.

In addition, if you are suffering from hypersensitive teeth and gums or periodontal disease, then the Sonicare Sensitive, AdaptiveClean or InterCare electric toothbrushes may be the product you’re looking for.

If you’re maintaining some whitening treatment, on the other hand, then you may try the Diamond Clean electric toothbrush.

Verdict

If you prefer a faster cleaning action or a flexible electric toothbrush with varying intensity settings, then you may opt for the other Sonicare toothbrushes with larger brush heads.

This is also the same case if you want a brush specialized for dentinal hypersensitivity or stained and discolored teeth.

However, if you’re simply looking for a basic electric toothbrush that will deliver a more superior performance than your average manual toothbrush, then the Philips Sonicare 2 Series Plaque Control Sonic Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush is a cost-effective and sensible solution.

Without spending a fortune, you can enjoy the base level benefits of the sonic technology: dynamic fluid action, superior plaque removal, and protection against gingivitis while maintaining a gentle action on teeth and gums.
