I want your best electric toothbrush… for plaque removal
Why is plaque removal important?
We probably don’t need to tell you, but plaque is oral health enemy number one. During the day it builds up on and between your teeth. It leads to tartar, cavities and gum disease so you need to remove it daily to keep your teeth healthy.
You should focus on plaque removal if you notice:
- Plaque build-up along your gum line
- A rough feeling on your teeth
- Your dental professional sees signs of cavities
When it comes to battling plaque, Philips Sonicare electric toothbrushes are a game changer. Our brushes deliver 31,000 brush strokes a minute, giving you a month’s worth of manual brush strokes in two minutes.
Powerful sonic movements whip up toothpaste into microbubbles, driving them deep between teeth and along the gum line for gentle, effective cleaning.
