    Great teeth cleaning, skimps on extras

    Pro -Excellent cleaning -Long battery, over two weeks between charges -Lots of different head options -Multiple modes and intensities Con -Comes with only one head -Heads are expensive, but that goes for all electric toothbrushes -No travel case ( at least not my package ) -Charging base could be better Overall The Sonicare 6100 does an excellent job in cleaning your teeth. Really gets in the nooks between and almost makes you feel like you don't need to floss. The toothbrush has various modes for cleaning, whitening, and plaque removal. You can select modes manually, but the handle will also automatically switch depending on what kind of brush head you use. The handle also has an internal timer that buzzes every 30 seconds so you can make sure you brush long enough and spend an equal amount of time on each section of your teeth. The battery lasts for a long time between charges ( so far I've gone over two weeks without recharging yet ). Overall, the cleaning performance is quite good. The downsides are more what you don't get in the box. My particular box didn't come with a travel case, though some models do. It also only comes with one brush head, which is disappointing. The charging base is very small, which might be nice for portability, but is not all that useful on the bathroom countertop. It would have been nice if it had slots to hold extra brush heads or something.

    This model had good reviews online so I picked it up. I can tell that my teeth feel cleaner than with my manual brushing. It was worth buying for me.

    I've had this brush for about 3 months now and what a difference! I will never go back to a manual brush. The different settings allow for gentle gum cleaning and power when you need deep cleansing.

    Purchase for my wife and she likes it as it does a great job cleaning. It took her a while to get use to using it. She wanted to slow down the brush action but now is use to it

    Good tooth brush so far. Haven't had any issues and I've been using it consistantly for about 2 months now. Teeth feel cleaner and are starting to look a tad bit whiter.

    I was skeptical about how well an electronic toothbrush would clean. I was pleasantly surprised by how well the Sonicare cleaned my teeth. It took a few brushes to get used to the feeling of an electric toothbrush, but now it feels natural. The Sonicare really cleans your teeth leaving them feeling smooth - almost as smooth and clean as when you leave the dentist. I also didn't realize how little time I spent brushing my teeth with a standard toothbrush. The Sonicare will turn off after 2 minutes of brushing. It seems like an eternity which tells me I never brushed my teeth long enough. If you want a good teeth cleaning, look no further than the Sonicare toothbrush!

    The first time I used this brush, I felt my teeth felt cleaner. Over these past weeks I have notice staning on my teeth has been reduced. I have used OralB for many years. I always felt it provided a good job cleaning but I feel this brush does a better job. I am looking forward to seeing how my next dental appointment goes. I do feel it will be improved. The one negative I have noticed is that the charge is lasting only about one week. My guess is the brush was stored for a long time after it was produced. Others have stated the change lasts 2 weeks or even 3 weeks. I would buy the brush again and highly recommend.

    I like this tooth brush. First use I was surprised on how powerful it is, felt like I was at the dentist getting a teeth cleaning. You can adjust the intensity on it 3 levels. I had it on the highest. I prefer the second level. I like the different modes, cleaning, whitening, and gum care. The brush head is replaceable and the tooth brush won'tify you when it ready to be replaced. I like that it will shut off by itself after use. It comes pre-charged so you can use it straight out if the box. The charge base is minimal so it won't take up much space on your counter. I am glad I have this tooth brush a great buy.

    The Philips Sonicare - ProtectiveClean 6100 electric toothbrush is the first electric toothbrush that I've owned. I've to say that this was the right decision to make, as it has multiple settings that allows the user to adjust for: clean, whitening, and gum cleaning. It also allows you to adjust speed. I am a coffee drinker, and after using the Philips Sonicare - ProtectiveClean 6100 electric toothbrush, I've noticed that it does a really good job at removing stains on my teeth and leaving them much shinier than a regular toothbrush. It's also very easy to use. I would definitely recommend this electric toothbrush to anyone.

    Smart and caring toothbrush

    Phillips SoniCare Intro - This is my second Sonicare electric toothbrush and I've had an Oral-B as well. They all did the same thing. They cleaned teeth a lot better than regular toothbrushes but at the same time, they make sensitive teeth and gums hurt. This Sonicare ProtectiveClean 6100, however, cleans very well and it has customizable settings for us that have sensitive gums or teeth. It has three cleaning functions - Clean, White & Gum care. It has an interval timer that vibrates when it's time to change to another quadrant of your mouth, 30 second intervals for each quadrant. White gives you two extra intervals of 15 seconds each. In addition to those cleaning functions, there's also three intensity settings so you can really dial in your toothbrushing preference. It also pulsates when you apply too much pressure. The bristles on the brush is soft and easy on the gums. Battery life is great. Good enough for the week long road trips. The box says that it will whiten your teeth in a week. I think it did take a layer or three of coffee stains off my teeth. If I had to complain about this toothbrush, it would be that it can be a bit slippery. Pros - Customizable settings - Pressure sensor - Let's you know when brush head needs to be replaced Cons - brush heads are costly Outro You want that just out of the dentist clean feel on your teeth every time you brush your teeth then you want this Sonicare 6100 toothbrush. I'm satisfied and would definitely recommend it.

    I used an earlier version of a Sonicare toothbrush so I have years of experience with them. I would estimate my dental cleanings were reduced from a painful 45 minutess/1 hour to under 35 minutes. That is total time, the biggest time reduction was the amount of time the tech spends scraping tartar. My teeth are visibly cleaner/whiter if I use a whitening toothpaste and my mouth is overall more healthy than before I started using it. The Protective Clean 6100 offers some additional features over my prior model that I think are worth the price. Has 3 speed settings - There is a pressure sensor which gently warns you by pulsing its speed creating a rhythmic sound if you press the toothbrush too hard. . This is not only good for your gums but also helps in making the brush heads (which are expensive) last longer - Brush head replacement reminder indicator. - If you utilize the stock brush head replacements it will automatically select between the 3 available modes (Clean, White or Gum Care). You always however have the option to select the mode manually. These brush heads do come at a cost though. - This model comes standard with the Diamond clean (HX6063/65) chip enabled brush head. Which is really the same brush head as the regular DiamondClean head HX6063/64 with an additional embedded chip - Quadpacer, Li-Ion battery resulting in a slimmer handle than some others. A timer lets you know when your done. - Travel Case is included. I have used mine for two full weeks without charging so travel without the charger is possible. In a world of gimmicky things this turns out to not be one of them. I can't recommend enough replacing your toothbrush with a Sonicare.

    I was looking to purchase an electric toothbrush and was happy to review this one. First off I like the fact it comes with a charge so you can use it right away and the charge overnight after the first time. The timer function is good as most don't brush long enough. All 3 setting have different times depending on your choice. The only downfall I see to it this far is if your mouth isn't closed toothpaste goes everywhere. It does leave your teeth feeling much cleaner than a traditional toothbrush does. The charge lasts a good long while and it let's you know to charge it beforehand if you pay attention to the light. The fact it lights up anytime it is touched is also a nice feature for someone like me who tends to knock things over in the dark. I like pressure sensor feature as it stops if your pushing to hard. I think they have made a lot of efforts with this brush to help people have good dental hygiene with minimal effort/thought on the part of the consumer.

    a massage for the mouth!

    Once you use this brush for the first time, you will realize just how worth it it's. In fact I joked after my first use that my mouth just received a massage. I noticed after my very first use and continue to notice, that my mouth felt cleaner after the two minute timer than my mouth does after my usual 3+ minutes with my manual toothbrush or my knockoff $20 "sonic" toothbrush. That brings me to my next point, any electronic toothbrush I've used up to this point has been powered by a battery that needed to be replaced which came with a whole slew of problems like it dying quickly, having to tap the base on the counter a certain way to get the battery to sit better and have a connection, having to keep a seal clean so water does not get near the battery, I could keep going, but those days are long gone with this unit! It makes life so much easier to have this sealed unit that tells you when it needs a charge boost, never cuts out due to the battery not sitting right, it's just amazing, it seems small but it's just one less little frustration to have during the day. The brush's different modes are easy to figure out as well as the intensity adjustment within the first minute of taking it out of the box, but it does come with a quick startup guide, and for those that like to read even more, a more detailed booklet that does give useful information is also in the box. It is also nice that this unit comes with a travel case as I noticed it's pretty large, especially lengthwise, compared to a traditional brush. My only minor complaint is that the brush head that it comes with is fairly small, I've gotten use to the small size but I still would prefer a larger bristle area. But I do see that there are several different sized brush head replacement options so that really is a minor complaint, the overall unit itself is great. This particular models technology and features are not so ridiculous and over the top, it's just enough to make your day to day life easier and even more enjoyable. I really recommend it.

    Great 1st Electric Toothbrush

    I have been wanting an electric toothbrush and I am very pleased with this product. It's lightweight and comfortable to hold. The only problem that I have is where the buttons are located. When I hold the brush, I am used to gripping my normal toothbrush, so I continuously pressed the button to turn off or change the settings. After my second/third time using, I did however, loosen my grip and brushed with ease and allowed the brush to do its job. I love the standard brush that comes with this product and there are quite a few options to buy for the replacement. @@@@@@@@ It's recommended to change the brush after 3 months of use. @@@@@@@ I kept mine on the clean option and I love that the brush was small enough to get all the way in the back to my wisdom tooth with no problem. I kept the mode on clean but there is a white and gum care mode but it is recommended that you change the brush head to the specific brush for those modes. Beware, this particular model did not come with the travel case, so be sure to check the packaging and make sure yours comes with the travel case. The product does have enough charge for one use and then it should be charged for 24 hours afterwards. There is also an indicator light (amber light) for when it is time change the brush. Also beware, the brush head does not fit completely smooth with the body of the product, there will be a little gap. In the instruction manual there is also a guide on how to properly use the product for brushing all angles of your teeth. I highly recommend that you pay close attention for the best clean! I truthfully have no other negatives to this product and I would like to add that I love the timer that alerts me after 30 seconds to switch quadrants. It's really faint at first but after a couple of uses you will notice the beeps. After the first use, I did have a much cleaner feeling in my mouth and some of the areas in between teeth were even cleaner before flossing. Would I buy this product again? Absolutely! Would I recommend this product to friends and family? Yes!

    It's a very smart toothbrush

    ProtectiveClean 6100 Rechargeable Toothbrush Included- Handle, Smart brush head, travel cap, Charging base, instructions, and 2 year warranty. This new Sonicare toothbrush looks clean and sleek. The toothbrush is super smart. It will custom clean your teeth depending on what settings you choose. There are 3 cleaning modes- clean, white and gum care. There are also 3 different intensity settings- low, medium, high. It has the technology to tell you when to replace your brush head, notify you when you are brushing too hard and need to reduce the pressure, and has a timer that beeps every 30 seconds to help you brush all four areas of your mouth. This brush has pretty much every smart option available without having to use the Sonicare app with their Smart toothbrush. I actually prefer this one because of that. I don't want to have to rely on the app to see my brushing results and have it work to it's fullest ability if it's paired with the phone. I like that this Sonicare offers me all the settings on it's own. It's not complicated. I can have the cleanest teeth and all the cleaning options.

    This is a Must Buy for Dental Health

    I know a lot of reviews tend to skew toward the positive, but folks when I say this Sonicare toothbrush is a must buy, I mean it! It comes with all you need to charge and operate this little jewel. The charging stand is about the size of a half dollar and the toothbrush just stands on it to charge. The toothbrush itself as several modes for whitening, cleaning and others and also has "pause" built in so you know it's time to move to a different section of your mouth. The brush head is equipped with an RFID chip to identify if it's the right brush for that model, what it's goal is, if you're brushing too hard and to tell you it's time to get a new one. Exchanging the brush heads is really simple, just a quick pull or push. But the most important part, does it clean well? Absolutely! In fact, I think my teeth are actually cleaner than when I leave my Dentist's office. This thing vibrates at speeds I could not replicate if I wanted to. It gets rid of all plaque and debris quickly and leaves a good clean feeling. A new user might need to start out a little slow to get used to the vibration, and never take the brush out of your mouth when it's running; it makes a mess quickly if you do. By far the best toothbrush I have ever owned and well worth it's price! Good Shopping!

    I've had this Sonicare for a couple of days now and am very happy with the results so far. Honestly, there's a lot less effort required to brush your teeth well with a Sonicare, it basically does the work for you. With a manual toothbrush, I was always told to brush in small circular motions. Does anyone actually do that consistently? I usually just go back and forth. The Sonicare does all of that for you. I can literally feel the difference, my teeth feel smoother and cleaner. I also like that this brush has different settings, not only speed but also for Clean, White, and Gum Care. Now, you're supposed to have different toothbrush heads that optimize each setting, but so far I only have the one brush head that comes with it. But based on the results I'm seeing so far, I plan to buy the other heads as well. My one warning is to not go too fast when brushing. I've a somewhat smaller mouth and if I rush, it definitely isn't pleasant to have the back of the brush it your teeth. But overall this is an excellent product. I feel like Sonicare just keeps improving.
