How Sonicare Works
The carefully researched and patented sonic combination of approximately 31,000 brush strokes per minute and the
specific reach of the brush head as it sweeps back and forth are what create Sonicare’s unique dynamic
cleaning action. This unique combination achieves the clinically proven disruption of plaque biofilm, even in
Sonicare in Mouth
Our technology results in a distinctly different brushing experience.

Motivate your patients with Sonicare
The original Sonicare technology developed 20 years ago was an industry-leading innovation. Now the new
takes our ambition to the next level
with the best clinical performance of any Sonicare to date, thanks to its unique brush head and ergonomic
handle design. Sonicare DiamondClean embodies the latest in
sonic technology innovation, delivering a brushing experience that is safe and effective, while encouraging
proper brushing technique. It represents a significant next step toward even better, more intuitive
solutions for daily oral hygiene — exactly what Philips Sonicare is all about.
For many dental professionals, patient compliance is the biggest barrier to better oral healthcare. Sonicare
motivates patients to brush better and more often, since they feel—and see—results within 2 weeks. Whiter
teeth are not the most significant measure of oral health, but it can be a powerful tool in motivating
patients to brush properly over the long term.
Features for patient motivation
As with all Sonicare models, DiamondClean
patient compliance features designed to motivate patients to brush thoroughly, including the Quadpacer and
Smartimer. Sonicare DiamondClean features five cleaning modes to target problem areas and includes unique Polish and
White modes. The new DiamondClean brush heads
technology with uniquely shaped bristles to better sweep away plaque and remove surface stains, and come in
two sizes — compact and standard — to ensure a thorough clean for any patient. The Quadpacer is an interval
timer that signals to the patient to brush each of the four quadrants of their mouth in 30-second intervals,
making sure that all surfaces are cleaned. The Smartimer is proven to encourage compliance by clearly
indicating to the patient the prescribed two-minute brushing cycle.
- Better compliance leads to important, long-term results—reduced plaque, reduced gingival pockets, better oral health
- Better check-up results motivate patients to maintain—and even improve—their oral healthcare routine
When you recommend the Sonicare toothbrush to a patient, you should do so with complete confidence. Its dynamic
cleaning action is proven to remove plaque for a powerful clean. It helps prevent gingival bleeding and gum disease
and, Sonicare has a full product line—there is a brush for every patient and a variety of oral health
