Electric toothbrushes are amazing, and each year they seem to be improving. The new Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart (Starting at $199 at Amazon) is aiming to provide a complete oral care solution, and the company states that the new device can remove up to 10x more plaque than a manual toothbrush. On top of that, the DiamondClean Smart can reportedly improve gum health up to 7x in just two weeks. That’s a healthy mouth right there, and that’s just the beginning. The device has the same awesome charging feature that the previous models had, allowing you to just drop the base into the included glass for charging.
The new DiamondClean Smart offers high performance brush heads, personalized coaching and guidance from smart sensor technology, and an intuitive brushing experience. The device was designed to not only helps users achieve personalized oral health goals (from plaque removal and gum health, to stain removal and fresh breath) but by connecting seamlessly to the Philips Sonicare app, it provides users with real-time feedback and personalized coaching on their brushing routines for a complete clean.
The Philips Sonicare app also keeps track of user behavior over time, delivering 100% coverage for each brushing session, so users can understand their progress in-between visits to their dental professional.
“Philips is committed to developing products that have a positive impact on people’s lives. Through our research we know that consumers want to achieve their healthiest smile, but don’t often know how they are doing in between visits to their dental professional,” said Alexander Harris, Senior Marketing Director, Philips Oral Healthcare. “We developed Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart while working closely with dental professionals to eliminate the guesswork from tooth brushing. Backed by our most recent research and insights, we are able to provide users with data and knowledge that will help them achieve a complete clean, every time.”
A key new feature of Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart is the intuitive brush head system with Smart Brush Head Recognition technology. Each of the four new brush heads includes a built-in microchip that automatically syncs to the brush head with sensors located in the handle that feature optimal cleaning modes and intensity settings for a bespoke cleaning experience. The brush head performance monitor even provides personalized feedback on when to change the brush head for peak performance.
The four new brush heads include: (As detailed by the company)
Premium Plaque Control: Results in four times better surface contact and removes up to ten times more plaque in hard to reach places.
Premium Gum Care: Designed to reach the back of the mouth, achieving up to seven times healthier gums in just two weeks.
Premium White: Densely-packed stain removal bristles whiten and polish teeth for 100% more stain removal in just three days.
TongueCare+: For long-lasting fresh breath
The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart helps you get a clear picture of your brushing habits by using three new smart brushing sensors located in the handle to send data from the toothbrush to the Philips Sonicare app using Bluetooth wireless technology. These smart sensors include one for Scrubbing to track motion, one to guide on the correct Pressure and another to track the Location of the brush head to never miss a zone. In addition to the information captured by the sensors, users are able to track how well they are brushing each day, set goals and focus on trouble spots, plus share their results with their dental practitioners.
The sensors also provide visual cues to the user through the brush handle. If too much pressure is being applied while brushing, the light ring on the end of the handle will flash. This acts as a gentle reminder to ease off the pressure and let the brush head do the work. Also, the smart brush head performance monitor tracks the brush head’s effectiveness based on actual brushing time and pressure. Simply replace the brush head when the icon on the handle lights up.
Aside from a personalized oral care experience, DiamondClean Smart makes charging the toothbrush easy and stylish. The glass charger – which doubles as a rinsing glass – instantly charges once the toothbrush is placed inside of it. A deluxe travel case also acts as a charger via a USB port. One full charge, either by glass or by case, allows for up to two weeks of regular use.
Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart is available on Amazon.com ($199 with Coupon at Amazon), as well as major retailers, in four colors – white, black, pink and sliver – starting at the recommended retail price of $229. Models with additional brush heads and accessories, plus a new Lunar Blue color option are available for $269 and $329. The Philips Sonicare app is free to download and available on iOS and Android devices in the Apple and Google Play app stores.
