Novel Dental Health Care from Philips
It is a proven fact that no run-of-the-mill toothbrush can promise to remove 100% plaque. This is exactly what the Philips Sonicare HX9332/05 Diamondclean Rechargeable Toothbrush guarantees. The electric toothbrush vows to whiten the user’s teeth in a week’s time and to enhance the infirmity of gums in at least a week. The toothbrush prevents dental injuries and takes ultra care of sensitive teeth and gums. The patented dental health technique called Sonic Technology is used for stimulation of gums by exuding a lubricating fluid. Philips Sonicare tooth brushes reach and clean even those nooks and corners which are hard to be accessed by normal manual toothbrushes. The Diamondclean will carefully remove stains of tobacco, coffee, tea, and alcohol, rendering your teeth sparkling white.
The Sonicare DiamondClean comes supplied with two brush heads. Both a standard brush head and a DiamondClean brush head are included. The diamond bristles are angled and the bristle fields are meticulously crafted to refurbish and whiten your teeth. The brush heads are easy to snap onto the toothbrushes ergonomic handle for ease of replacement.
Five Cleaning Modes
Five cleaning modes are provided by the Philips Sonicare HX9332/05 Diamondclean Rechargeable Toothbrush to give you a truly personalized cleaning experience. These mode are; Clean, White, Polish, Gum Care, and Sensitive.
The first mode is the standard-two minutes one which focuses on complete cleaning of the buccal cavity. The second mode is to whiten the teeth by smoothly removing the stains, followed by the polishing mode which concentrates on brightening of teeth for a winsome smile. Gum care is a three minute mode which looks after the hygiene of gums. Sensitive mode is exclusively for gentle treatment of sensitive teeth by slow motion of the brush in the mouth. Users may choose any of these five modes depending upon their needs and discretion.
Innovative Charging Technology
Charging glass technology is a unique functionality of the Philips Sonicare HX9332/05 Diamondclean Rechargeable Toothbrush which makes use of conduction technology to charge the toothbrush while it rests in the glass. After removal from the base, it can be put to use for rinsing the mouth as well.
The Lithium-Polymer battery of the toothbrush is rechargeable. On a single charge, the toothbrush can be used for up to 42 brushes. As with many other gadgets, the brush blinks with an indicator light in case of low battery. The recharging process is carried out by simply placing the toothbrush atop the charging glass. The glass is mounted on a multi-voltage base. If you are travelling, then it would be more convenient to use the USB charging facility. It is as simple as connecting the toothbrush case to the USB port of your laptop, even when you are on the go.
Pros and Cons
The biggest plus of Philips DiamondClean Rechargeable Toothbrush is the superior dental care that it promises. Apart from the Philips FlexCare, there is arguably, no other electric brush in the market which offers such comfort and a wide range of brushing modes.
The toothbrush is meticulously well styled, with a sleek all-white handle which has been ergonomically designed to fit comfortably in your hand.
The charging glass and USB technologies are advantageous; especially the latter if you are a frequent traveller who likes the idea of being able to recharge your toothbrush on the move.
The two-year limited warranty is reassuring should you encounter any problems. Philips even offers a 100% refund in case of unsatisfactory performance after a 28 days trial.
The button on the FlexCare+ which allowed you to change modes is no longer present. The one button on the handle functions as both the power button and for changing modes, so you aren’t able to choose a new mode until the toothbrush has been turned on. However, there is a way around this problem if you’re willing to be flexible. After you turn the toothbrush on and it’s inside your mouth, roll your wrist round and look in the mirror at the settings and press the button until you reach your preferred mode.
Unlike earlier Sonicare models, the brush heads don’t come supplied with color coded rings so if several people in your household will be using the brush it can be problematic identifying each person’s brush head.
The travel case doesn’t have space to store the USB cable inside it when it’s not in use.
The Philips Sonicare HX9332/05 Diamondclean Rechargeable Toothbrush is as good as electric toothbrushes get in terms of state-of-the-art cleaning technology and features. Its chic, modern design is also impressive.
However, it does have a glaring design flaw. The lack of a separate mode changing button means that to select a mode other than the one you usually use; you need to cycle through the five cleaning modes while the toothbrush is turned on. This is very impractical unless you always use the same mode.
If you currently own the Philips Sonicare FlexCare Plus, then it’s not worth upgrading to this model. If you don’t own a FlexCare model, then you need to assess your lifestyle and weigh up whether the added convenience of the dual-charging system, improved cosmetics and slightly improved brush heads are worth the extra cost over the FlexCare+.
