Product Information

Offering advanced interdental cleaning and intuitive features, the new Philips Sonicare FlexCare Platinum pairs powerful performance with impressive results. It removes up to 6 times more plaque between teeth than a manual toothbrush1 and significantly more plaque than a leading competitor.2 It also reduces gingivitis and gingival bleeding sites in just 2 weeks. 

With extra-long bristles to sweep away plaque caught between teeth, the InterCare brush head has specialized bristle technology for interdental cleaning, gum care, and polishing. Anchor-free tufting provides a denser bristle pack with 34% more bristles than staple-based tufting.

FlexCare Platinum features an intuitive pressure sensor to guide proper brushing technique. It gently vibrates the handle to alert the user that they are pressing too hard.

With 9 total brushing experiences, FlexCare Platinum offers a personalized clean. Patients can select from 3 cleaning modes (Clean, White, Gum Care) and 3 intensity settings (Low, Medium, High) for a combination that suits them.

Flexcare Platinum is the newest Sonicare, not to be confused w/ Plus July 27, 2013


Michael Collione from Brooklyn NY

I've had a Flexcare plus which is the brush with the sanitizor and blue grip. Worked great until I left it at a friends never to be seen again. Just got a Platinum from my dentist (and boss) and I thinks its a great product. You can adjust the power now! High, med, and low.. and 3 modes.. clean, whiten, and gumcare. Theres a new brushhead with bristals that really reach in between ur teeth.. feels like a cleaning. It also has a built in pressure sensor so you can't brush too hard. I was able to get a $20 rebate online and 2 1/2 yr warrenty. I've always liked using a sonicare but this new one really makes my teeth feel super clean. I manage an office an we now sell them to ALOT of our patients (some freebies for big cases). They are hard to find in stores, and I don't trust online.. so it's been a great added revenue. They also own Zoom now apparently which I was surprised to hear. Seems like a very innovative company these days in the dental space.
