Philips Sonicare: Healthier and brighter smiles for Oral Health Month
February 22, 2013
Having healthy teeth means brushing and flossing regularly and visiting your dentist twice a year. When we keep tabs on our oral health, we not only save on costly and sometimes painful dental procedures, we also help ensure our overall well-being. In time for the Oral Healthcare Month of February, Philips offers its range of Sonicare power toothbrushes for better oral health.
“We at Philips put a premium on overall health and well-being, and oral health is certainly no exception. We believe that good oral health starts with the right toothbrush, and our Sonicare line is the ideal choice,” says Ms. Me-Ann Achacoso, Philips Business Development Manager for Health and Wellness.
Achacoso adds that keeping teeth strong and healthy requires a long-term investment, and that the Sonicare lineup of power toothbrushes can meet various oral health needs.
The power toothbrushes in the Sonicare range can perform 31,000 brush strokes per minute, resulting in a dynamic cleaning action that drives fluids in between teeth, gums, and other hard-to-reach areas of the mouth. Moreover, Sonicare supports the dentist recommended 2-minute brushing period through the Quadpacer that counts a 30-second interval for each quadrant of the mouth.
The Sonicare Family
For today’s busy folk, caffeinated drinks may be a stimulating beverage, but often tend to stain teeth. For a whiter smile, Achacoso suggests Sonicare HealthyWhite which features a dedicated whitening mode to help remove daily stains resulting in brighter and white teeth. Sonicare HealthyWhite guarantees teeth that are whiter by two shades in just two weeks.
If your concern is plaque build-up after feasting on delicious food, Achacoso recommends the Sonicare EasyClean which provides better plaque removal versus a manual toothbrush. Its one-mode and slim handle make it an ideal choice for maneuverability and an easy transition from manual toothbrushes to the Sonicare lineup.
If you want advanced cleaning that is gentle enough for the teeth and gums, Achacoso recommends Sonicare FlexCare. This innovative power toothbrush offers a customized cleaning experience with three different modes, including a clean mode for outstanding cleaning in just two minutes, a sensitive mode for gentle yet thorough cleaning of the gums and a massage mode to stimulate the gums.
Kids love to munch on sweets and it’s very important to keep their little teeth healthy. Instill healthy brushing habits early with the Sonicare for Kids which features an age-appropriate brush head designed to gently clean and protect teeth at the key developmental stages of children. To make brushing a fun activity for them, the Sonicare for Kids also features the KidPacer which features engaging musical tones to encourage proper brushing habits.
Achacoso concludes, “Philips fully supports Oral Health Month, and we are committed to promoting good oral health not just this February, but throughout the year.”
