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 hard-to-reach areas.

Improved Compliance

Improved Compliance
Motivate your patients with Sonicare
The original Sonicare technology developed 20 years ago was an industry-leading innovation. Now the new Sonicare DiamondClean 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 includes innovative 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 feature innovative 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.
