Philips Sonicare engineering has significantly raised the level of expected excellence in this 9700 Diamond Clean Smart electronic tooth brush. Philips products have always been the gold standard, but this model is indeed even more special than expected. The price is a little high (about the cost of two professional teeth cleanings), but seven additional brushes are included and this is such an improved product I saw the extra value in its quality and performance almost immediately.
Having a long history of expensive dental work including crowns, a permanent bridge and an implant, I am extremely interested in good checkups to protect my investment in healthy teeth and gums. My dental hygiene has always depended upon an electric toothbrush for best results as recommended by my dentist and hygienist. For years I have used the “other” popular brand with rotating brush. Recently I began using a base model Philips Sonicare toothbrush and found the difference in performance so remarkable that I vowed to never go back to the “other” (round head) brand.
So how did the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean 9700 manage to WOW a valued repeat client like me to bring technology, health care expertise, and innovative design to serve in this most luxurious and advanced package?
Let’s start with first impression: the deep blue color is gorgeous, the finish a very rich satin and the brush rests in an elegant glass which fits over a beautiful gold-colored charging base for an even more sophisticated impression. Then there is the wealth of connected features, sensors and controls plus the dual charging capability of electric or USB charging. I guess that is why this is called an “electronic” toothbrush, not just electric.
First of all, it has a very nice, non-slip finish and it is remarkably light to hold. It has three intensity settings (from gentle to strong) – very important to keep onlays and other delicate dental work in place, its brush shape reaches hard-to-get to spaces but it still manages to eliminate those stubborn coffee stains and leave your teeth feeling like you have just had them cleaned by the hygienist. This model has multiple pressure sensors to keep you from brushing your teeth too hard which could cause damage to your enamel and very importantly does not shred your gums. It has a slender handle making it easy to hold and manipulate in tooth brushing. And it also has pre-programmed timers synchronized to the type of brush head in use to prompt adequate brushing for each quadrant of your mouth. This keeps you from brushing too much or too little. Phillips offers specialized brush heads that are click-on and interchangeable and a little light to let you know when it is time to change brushes. The brush is much quieter that the “other brand” and it is sleeker and cleaner looking on the counter.
Did you notice that this brush connects to an app to tutor you into getting the most benefit out of this brush? I was not sure this was going to appeal to me since if you are not a total geek it seems a bit odd to bring your phone into the bathroom to advise you on your oral care routine. However, the app took moments to install and the Bluetooth connectivity was automatically activated and ready for first use right out of the box. I found that the app guided me perfectly, noting when I brushed too fast, missed a section or applied too much pressure. Its count-down timer and visual tracking made me focus like never before on getting my teeth perfectly clean. Points on the board for this feature!
The next top drawer element is the variety of brushing types you can enjoy for super oral hygiene with this toothbrush. Four types of great brush heads are standard with this model for personalized oral healthcare goals that are easily programmed in your app. The app guides you to brush according to your preference to get optimal cleaning. Multiple specialized brushes in this suite include those for plaque control to give a deep clean, a gum care brush for healthy gum cleaning and stain removal brush for whiter teeth and finally a tongue care “brush” for fresh breath. The sleek design travel case has room for the power handle as well as two brushes and recharges with a built in USB power cord. It is a very complete oral health system.
So how did it all work?
In a word: Fantastic.
I have been experimenting with all brushes for only a week so far, and I can say the 9700 DiamondClean delivers the best results I could ever have expected. As I mentioned, I have another Sonicare tooth brush (the base model) which I felt was performing well, but the DiamondClean clearly is superior! The app guided me to make sure I did not overlook or underbrush areas of the mouth and my teeth appear whiter and cleaner using whitening toothpaste with the whitening brush. Brushes are constructed so that they seem to reach into every groove including in crowded teeth areas prone to plaque buildup.
Another reason for being so impressed with the Sonicare system is this…..it has less splash all over my mirror when I brush my teeth. This is a huge and unexpected benefit. With the other brand’s spinning toothbrush I had been using before using the Sonicare, the mirror had to be cleaned each time I brushed my teeth. The Phillips Sonicare produces no splash.
This is the most beautiful, practical, and versatile toothbrush I have ever used. I find it flawless in its intended purpose and design. Long after the price is forgotten, the quality of this toothbrush will be appreciated.
And so confident is Philips in this toothbrush, they give a free 6 month warranty extension (to a total of 2.5 years!) when you register it in the app.
I strongly recommend this complete toothbrush system to the individual interested in keeping their teeth and gums healthy as a life time goal.
I have had dental issues for most of my adult life and spent more in dental bills in the past 20 years than I have in medical bills and that includes beating cancer. So if that doesn't tell you that I'm someone who needs the very best toothbrush that money can buy then I don't know what will. My Phillips Sonicare 9700 is an upgrade from a duo pack that my wife and I purchased 2 years ago for about $150. So after this there is nowhere to go as this is the flagship toothbrush that Phillips offers.
My particular issue is a gum issue in which, if any bacteria are on my teeth at all, will cause my gums to attack the teeth and create holes in them. Which means that tooth has to be removed. I tell you this because this is the most important reason for needing clean teeth. Sure I get my teeth professionally cleaned by a dental hygeniest at a periodontist (deeper cleaning than a regular dentist) every three months but I also need the very best home solution. Enter the 9700 Smart Toothbrush.
When I received the 9700 I was immediately deeply impressed by the packaging. This looks less like a toothbrush and more like a high end video card. It came packaged with multiple brush heads, a jar and a recharging station. To be honest it was a bit overwhelming. However after reading the instructions and unpacking everything it all was very simple. You must download an app and be registered on the Phillips side, which I had done beforehand.
For my first brushing (the toothbrush comes charged, but you are supposed to charge it for 24 hours after your first use) I chose the gum care, because that is what I need. The app synced up quite easily and surprisingly enough the brushing showed me what was happening in real time on the app, showing areas of my gums I needed to hit as I brushed. There are several programs to use and each program has a different brushhead which is why there are many brush heads that come with the unit. After having used the toothbrush for over a week now I can safely say that, according to the app, I was brushing with way too much motion and, again, because of the app, I have corrected my brushing technique. The app does track your history and shows how many more brushings you can get out of the current brush head which is awesome.
All in all I'd highly recommend the Phillips Sonicare 9700 Smart Brush. Sure it's expensive but its value is immeasureable in the money that it will save you in dental bills. The only reason I do not give it a perfect, five star rating is that I believe for the price they could have included a antibacterial chamber to clean the brush heads like the previous duo that my wife and I got two years ago. For me, however, I can go ahead and use that brush chamber with this toothbrush so it is not a big deal.
Two thumbs up, if this doesn't help make your dentist happy then I can't imagine what will!!
I've been using this toothbrush for two week now and the results have been incredible! I previously had a Philips Sonicare that was a little less feature heavy and within the first few days was able to notice a sizable difference in the cleaning efficiency. The companion app and in-handle features that guide you to a better and healthier clean are well worth the cost of the brush. It also comes with a variety of smart brushing heads that are automatically tracked through the app to give you an in-depth look at how much longer they'll last. The higher cost also includes multiples of these, so that offsets it a bit. You can also sign up for a program within the app that will sync with your dentists results, optimize your cleaning experience, and track what has been done and how well it was accomplished. The only drawback is with the initial firmware update that was ready to install upon opening the box is the instructions are vary vague, my advice (and seemingly the only way to install the update) is to use your toothbrush once before attempting and that seems to fix that issue. Aside from that, this product has been incredibly amazing!
I’ve never written a Product review but for this I had to. This product is amazing in every single way and I can’t believe I didn’t have it my whole life.
I will never again use a regular toothbrush as this product has my mouth feeling as fresh as it ever has before and actually clean. I mean actually really clean. This product consistently makes sure you brush your teeth exactly as a dentist would instruct and makes you aware of everything you’re doing wrong. There’s absolutely no better toothbrush on the market this is the best possible way to brush your teeth. There’s absolutely no better to push on the market this is the best possible way to brush you teeth.
Let Sonicare do all the work for you.
I used to have a pervious model of this Sonicare Diamond toothbrush, but it got stolen. :( I was left with the carrying case and the charging glass. I bought the new model and I could not be happier. My dentist told me how great my teeth look and in how good condition my gums are!! when I was using an ordinary bamboo brush, my dentist was complaining that everything was wrong in my mouth and that I was not brushing enough and properly. Now, I have changed nothing to the way I brush or the frequency and everything is perfect. She says there is not much to clean! And I really feel the difference everytime I brush my teeth. Get it, I highly recommend it. I saw the negative reviews that it breaks down after half a year or a year, and from my personal opinion with the previous mode, that did not happen! It was working great for 3 years before it was stolen. However, I got scared and I also purchased the best buy plan for replacement for another 2 years. If it breaks down 3-4 years after I bought it, I will not complain, it will have paid off.
This is my 4th son a care and it is incredible. The 1st it's a little overwhelming with all the features but they are really easy to use you can do everything with this tooth brush Including having data texted to you... The glass that sits in Is a nice wrenching tool as well as a charger the power is dynamic you can change the speeds for gums or whiter teeth it's really really a great value very highly recommended
I love this toothbrush so much that I convinced everyone in my family to purchase it to. When you pair it with sensodyne whitening toothpaste, I promise you will see a difference in cleanliness and color’
My dentist is over-the-moon. My gums are not receding as much as they were before. Flossing is probably the most important reason for this, but the fancy toothbrush makes me feel like I'm doing my very best. I wish the replacement heads weren't so dern expensive, but they go on sale on different sites c. Black Friday, so stock up for the subsequent year.
