, The brush should be placed at a 45-degree angle between your brackets and gumline. Using light pressure, gently move the bristles in a small circular motion so the longer bristles reach between your teeth for 2 seconds.Then gently turn (roll) the brush handle so the bristles clean the bracket and the rest of the tooth before you glide the bristles to the next tooth. Continue this until you have brushed all of your teeth. Please note that brush heads will wear out sooner when used on braces.
Dental restorations (dental work)
Use Sonicare on dental restorations (such as implants, caps, crowns, bridges and fillings) as you would on your natural tooth surfaces to reduce plaque build-up and improve gum health.Work the bristles around all the areas of the restoration for thorough cleaning.
Your dental professional may have indicated that you have periodontal pockets, deep pockets where plaque bacteria collect. If this is the case, after brushing for a full 2 minutes, spend extra time gently brushing these areas to improve your gum health.
Easy-start brushing power ramp-up
All Sonicare models come with the Easy-start feature activated (on), which helps you get used to brushing with Sonicare. Brushing power will gently increase to full power over the first 12 brushings. The Easy-start feature is active if you hear 2 beeps immediately after turning on your Sonicare. Once you reach optimal brushing power (after the 12th brushing), you will no longer hear the double beep at the beginning of your brushing routine.
Note: Each of the first 12 brushings must be at least 1 minute in length to properly move through the Easy-start ramp-up cycle. To deactivate or activate the Easy-start feature:
1 Attach your brush head to the handle. 2 Place the handle in a plugged-in charger base.
3 To deactivate the Easy-start feature, press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.You will hear 1 beep to indicate that the Easy-start feature has been deactivated.
