Are you curious how you can save money on dental, and even health related bills? Believe it or not, your mouth is a window into the rest of your body. Many conditions, like diabetes, produce early signs in your mouth. Taking better care of your oral hygiene can result in less dental work, like filling cavities and deep cleanings, and it can also stave off cardiovascular disease, and preterm birth when you limit gum-related diseases. The new Philips Sonicare FlexCare Platinum Connected Toothbrush along with the Sonicare App is your answer to better oral care.
How to use the Philips Sonicare FlexCare Platinum Connected Toothbrush and App
I’ve been a long time Sonicare fan, actually all four of us own a powered toothbrush from Sonicare! I’ve hardly missed a dentist appointment since I was 7, however a few years ago some cavities popped up, and my long-time dentist tech said my gums were coming dangerously close to needing a deep clean. I was so confused. I regularly brushed and flossed.
I went home and decided to toss my regular toothbrush, opting for an electric toothbrush instead. I also invested in a Sonicare Air Flosser. By the next cleaning – my dentist was asking me what I had done. He was wowed by the results! Each and every appointment since then has assured me that switching to Sonicare oral products has resulted in lower dental bills and a healthier smile.
Recently, I upgraded to the Philips Sonicare FlexCare Platinum Connected Toothbrush. Using bluetooth technology, the Flexcare Platinum toothbrush provides a guide to a better clean, while providing instant results. Yes, really! The Flexcare Platinum toothbrush includes many features like a Smart Timer, Smart Sensors, and optional Intensity Levels.
Using the Sonicare App
Start by connecting your toothbrush to the Sonicare App. The app not only shares all of the features about your innovative new toothbrush, but also provides helpful videos on getting started. It’s like having your own personal oral care coach!
You are then prompted to take a mini questionnaire to find out exactly where your trouble spots are, and how you can get better results. Select between 3 different brushing modes: Clean, Whitening and Deep Clean. You can also select goals (located at the bottom blue bar) to work towards, like a whiter smile.
Now you’re ready to starting brushing! The app highlights the area where you should begin brushing, and once you turn on the toothbrush, the timer begins to countdown. As you guide the Flexcare Platinum over your teeth and gums, the app whitens the teeth in the highlighted area. The toothbrush beeps and the app highlights the next area to brush. You will continue doing this until your entire mouth is brushed.
Once your two minutes of brush time are up, the app provides you instant results on a 3D map. Yellow spots indicate locations in your mouth that needed longer cleaning time. It will also let you know if you’re brushing too hard. The app allows you to move the map around to see all areas of your teeth. It’s pretty neat!
Each time you brush, the Sonicare app will keep track of your results – providing you personalized feedback (in the Progress section of the blue bar). That way you can master your own oral care! Under the Tools section, you can select focus areas, add dentist appointment information, and shop for Sonicare products too.
The Flexcare Platinum toothbrush will also remind you when it’s time to replace your brush head. It’s recommended to replace it every 3 months. It also delivers 31,000 strokes per minute with up to 10x more plaque removal and healthier gums in just 2 weeks! Talk about a dynamic cleaning job!
After just one use you will see and feel the difference. Each time I use the Flexcare Platinum toothbrush, I feel like I just got out of the dentist chair. It leaves my teeth that squeaky clean!
