Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush Review

When it comes to maintaining good oral hygiene, it can be hard work. Brushing twice a day for 2 minutes each time sounds easy enough, but somehow there’s never enough time in one day. Now, let’s add to the equation that regular toothbrushes are also a pain to use.​


Sometimes it might feel like your arm is going to fall off when you have to brush for a full 2 minutes. There’s also the fact that manual toothbrushes are not the best for maintaining good oral health, removing plaque and tartar, and for sensitive teeth too.


That being said, there are some really good electric toothbrushes out there that can help make oral hygiene easier. Simply put, it’s much easier to use an electric toothbrush, as you really don’t have to do any work at all. Just smear some toothpaste on the brush head, turn it on, and move it from one tooth to the next. 


Philips is a highly trusted brand name when it comes to the world of dental hygiene, and these guys have been around for a good number of years. In terms of product lines, one of their most popular toothbrush lines is the Sonicare. There are quite a few different Sonicare electric toothbrushes out there, with some being more popular than others. 


One of the better models at this time is the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush, which is a fairly high-end electric toothbrush with a lot of features. We wanted to do a Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush review to tell you all about it, so let’s get right to it.

Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart Series Review

When it comes to the features of the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush, as well as the technology used, there is a fair amount to cover. As they say you get what you pay for. So if you are going to be investing in a high quality toothbrush you are going to get tons of features that the other toothbrushes don't offer. 


The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean is the best toothbrush on the market and comes with all the bells and whistles. 


It really is quite a high-end and advanced electric toothbrush. It’s a high-quality item with a high level of durability, many brushing modes, Bluetooth and app compatibility, and more. Let’s take a closer look at the key features. 


3- Brush Heads

With the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush, you get 3 brush heads. These brush heads are said to be able to remove 100% more plaque and tartar in just 3 days, than any regular toothbrush could remove in several weeks. What is also said about these brush heads is that they can improve gum health in just 7 weeks after starting use. Keep in mind that there are 3 different brush heads, and each is specifically designed for a specific brushing mode. So there's a brush head designed for everyone's specific needs. 


4- Brushing Modes

On this same note, the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush comes with 4 different brushing modes, something which a normal toothbrush obviously cannot do. There is the normal clean mode, for general tooth brushing, as well as a deep clean mode, which is designed to really get between your teeth and remove a lot of plaque and stains. Next, there is the White+ mode, which, as you can probably tell, is designed specifically for fast teeth whitening. Finally, you get the gum health mode, which is specifically designed to help increase and maintain gum health. 


Highest Brushes Per Minute

In terms of technology, the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush uses brush heads which feature up to 62,000 movements per minute, which is absolutely insane. It uses a combination of sonic pulses and oscillations to provide you with a fast and easy toothbrushing experience. What is also important to note is that there are 3 brushing intensities to choose from — low, medium, and high. Therefore, you can tone it down a bit in case you have sensitive teeth, or really crank up the power for a super deep and thorough brushing. 


Smart Brush Head Senor

Another neat aspect when it comes to the brush heads is that the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush knows which brush head you are using, and it automatically chooses the appropriate brushing mode for the selected brush head. It’s really convenient because you don’t have to know which brush head to use for which mode. Just stick the right brush head onto the handle, and the 

Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush does the rest on its own.


Brush Head Replacement Technology

When it comes to the brush heads, the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush is really special, because brush heads break down and wear out over time. However, this particular toothbrush comes with a monitor which keeps track of the efficiency of the brush head and how it is performing. Once the brush head has been worn down to a certain point, and is not performing as it should, the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush will let you know when it is time for a replacement, something which is not available on other models. On that same note, although the replacement brush heads are not cheap, they are at least very easy to get a hold of.


Timer

In terms of the various brushing modes, they each come with smart timers which tell you when to switch quadrants in your mouth. Now, the various brushing modes last for different amounts of time, but each mode comes with timer function which periodically tell you when it’s time to switch to the next position in your mouth. So you can ensure you brush your teeth properly. 


Pressure Sensor

Next, the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush also comes with a special pressure sensor. Yes, there is such a thing as using too much pressure when brushing your teeth, and it’s something that can cause pain, bleeding, and it’s just not good for your gums in general. This toothbrush comes with a pressure sensor which lets you know if you are pushing too hard. It’s a little  ring which lights up and flashes, so you stop using too much pressure, preventing you from damaging your teeth. 


Battery Life

Something else we appreciate is that the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush has pretty good battery life, and it comes with the charger included. In fact, the charger looks like a normal drinking glass. Simply place the brush inside the glass, and it will automatically charge, plus the glass doubles as a normal rinsing glass as well. A single full charge, will last for about 2 weeks of brushing, which is nothing short of impressive. Although, on the other hand, it does take at least 12 hours for it to charge, which is quite a while. That said, the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush is designed to always sit in the charger, so after the first full charge, charging time really should not be much of an issue at all.


Travel Case

Yet another benefit, although a small one, is the fact that the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush also comes with a handy little travel case to keep the whole unit clean and in one piece while you travel. It’s a good addition in case you are somebody who is on the move a lot.


Bluetooth Technology

The next really cool feature of the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush is the fact that it is Bluetooth compatible with most modern smartphones. The reason for this is so you can connect to the Sonicare brushing app. Once connected, the app automatically tracks your brushing progress and data, so you can get a detailed visual picture of how you are brushing, how long you are brushing, and the effectiveness of your brushing too. 


Durability

The other aspect about the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush worth noting is that it is very durable. You should be able to drop it without fear of causing too much damage, although it’s obviously not recommended that you try. On that same note, it is 100% waterproof, so you can easily get it wet and wash the handle without fear of damaging it. Speaking of the handle itself, it’s pretty comfortable to hold and it does have good grip, so it won’t slip around and is fairly easy to hold on to.

Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Series Cons

  • Expensive- If you want the best electric toothbrush on the market, it is going to cost you. The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush is quite expensive. All in all, you will spend well over $200 if you buy this model. It is  a lot of money for an electric toothbrush.

How Does The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Work?

We think that the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush is one of the easiest and most versatile toothbrushes out there. We found that its level of durability is really high, and it’s almost impossible to break. Anything short of purposely throwing against a wall shouldn’t be a big deal. So you should only break this toothbrush if you really try. 


In terms of ease of use, all you have to do is select which brush head you want to use, and the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush will choose the cleaning mode all on its own. It matches the brush heads and cleaning modes automatically, which takes the hard work out of it. Moreover, the fact that this toothbrush also comes with quadrant timers and a pressure sensor are two other features which take the hard work and thinking out of the equation. 


It could charge a little faster, but that said, a single charge lasts for about 2 weeks, plus the brush is designed to sit in the charging glass, so charging time should be ongoing. All in all, the brushing modes perform well, and we would have to say that the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush is probably one of the best options, although more expensive.
