What’s So Special About the Philips Sonicare for Kids?
Switchable Power Modes Adapt as your Child Grows
The Philips Sonicare for Kids operates on two power modes – the low mode is perfect for children between the ages of four and six; the high mode is better suited to children aged seven and up. Having only two switchable modes keeps things simple, while protecting the more delicate gums of younger users and helping them transition to a more powerful cleaning action when they’re ready.
Brush Heads Designed for Growing Mouths
The brush heads work together with the power modes. The smaller, rounder brush head is designed for children aged four to six; the larger, more elongated brush head is appropriate for children aged seven and older.
Philips Sonic Technology for Superior Cleaning
Being kid-friendly doesn’t mean skimping on performance. That’s why the Sonicare for Kids uses patented technology that moves the bristles along at 31,000 strokes per minute which, when combined with the reach of the brush head, deeply and effectively cleans along the gum-line and between teeth, by forcing fluid into hard to reach areas.
Packed with Features to Make Brushing Fun and Easy
As most of us know, kids often require extra encouragement, motivation and consistency for new activities to become good habits. Fortunately, Philips incorporated a number of features into the Sonicare for Kids electric toothbrush that make brushing something young people can look forward to.
The toothbrush plays fun sounds, encouraging kids to brush all their teeth – upper and lower, front and back.
Kids love colours. The Sonicare for Kids lets children customise their brush with three, easy to switch coloured panels. In addition to looking fun, the comfortable, ergonomic handle was carefully designed to be easy for young hands to hold, and features an anti-roll shape to help prevent any mishaps when setting the brush down on its side.
This unique shape also allows toothpaste to be applied when the brush is placed horizontally on a flat surface. Dentists recommend 2 full minutes of brushing for optimal oral health. The built-in KidTimer very gradually increases brushing time over 90 days, arriving at 2 minutes so slowly that children don’t even realize their brushing time is increasing.
The Sonicare for Kids is simple to maintain. There are no batteries to take out and replace – it simply needs to be put on the included charging base after use.
It’s a Yes From Toothbrush Talk!
Old habits are hard to break, and good habits start young. This electric toothbrush is a fantastic way to get the child (or children) in your life familiar with a regular routine that will lead to a lifetime of good oral health. It’s sturdy, fun, encourages regular and correct brushing and outperforms any manual toothbrush – all while cleaning effectively and protecting sensitive gums.
Before the Sonicare for kids was released, Philips tested the brush with the children of dental professionals. Over 90 percent of the parents were highly satisfied with the result – and almost as many children – 89 percent – chose the Sonicare for Kids over their last toothbrush. That’s a glowing endorsement from parents and children, and I think that if both are so in agreement about same thing, this Sonicare brush should be in every household with young people in it.
