There are several reasons for the popularity and appeal of the Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 5100 electric toothbrush. In this report, we’ll look at some of these features.
1. Lovely Design
The Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 5100 electric toothbrush is designed to be ergonomic and attractive. It has several design elements that are meant to make it easy to hold comfortably and securely while brushing.
2. Color Choices
You can get the toothbrush in a choice of different colored handles. This is often of importance to discerning consumers who like to color coordinate their bathroom accessories – or simply buy a toothbrush in their favorite color. Clinical white also reminds some users of a dentist’s office!
3. Multiple Cleaning Modes
With the Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 5100 you can choose from three different cleaning modes for better brushing efficiency.
- The Clean mode is the most frequently used mode and essentially delivers a regular tooth cleaning action.
- White mode is a little more energetic and is used for whitening teeth and removing stains for a sparkling bright smile.
- Gum Care mode is a gentler cleaning mode that is particularly useful for those with sensitive teeth and gum disease or gingivitis.
The multiple options for cleaning modes can be selected by pressing on buttons that are clearly labelled on the brush handle. You can do this quickly and conveniently, even while midway through a brushing session.
4. Timer And Quad Pacing
An inbuilt timer in the Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 5100 electric toothbrush will end a brushing session at the end of a dentist-recommended 2 minutes. This duration has been widely recognized as adequate to maintain good oral hygiene.
In addition, there is a quad pacer which indicates every 30 seconds that it is time to move to a different quadrant. In this way, the pacer ensures that you clean all teeth uniformly.
5. Brush Sync Functionality
Most users find it hard to keep track of the time when a brush head must be replaced. Brush Sync makes it easier. It lets you know when you’ll have to change the Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 5100 electric toothbrush head.
By sensing when the bristles become bent, twisted or frayed, the device indicates that a replacement is due. As a result, you’ll enjoy better brushing quality.
6. Pressure Sensor
It is easy to accidentally press down too hard while brushing with an electric toothbrush. Over time, this could lead to damage to teeth and gums. A pressure sensor is included in the ProtectiveClean 5100 and indicates when you are applying too much force.
This serves to protect your teeth and gums from unintended injury.
7. Automatic Power Down
The Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 5100 electric toothbrush turns off automatically after the cleaning session ends. This helps prolong battery life, a serious advantage for frequent travellers.
8. Exceptional Battery Life
Like all Philips Sonicare electric toothbrushes, the ProtectiveClean 5100 also has a long battery life. It can last for 3 weeks on a single full recharge.
9. Travel Case
A premium quality hard-shell travel case is included in your package and this helps store spare brush heads and protects the instrument while you’re on the road.
For all these reasons and more, the Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 5100 electric toothbrush is an excellent choice for most users.
