The Philips Sonicare FlexCare HX6902 is a top range powered toothbrush which results in superb features accompanied by a higher price.

Sonic action toothbrushes as with the Sonicare FlexCare HX6902 from Philips are the result of continuous research and development of electric toothbrush engineering. A powerful sonic action pulsates and disturbs the dental plaque beneath the gumline at the base of teeth and on the surface of the teeth.

There’s no pressure sensor relying on the users judgement to be correct but it does have a two minute timer with four lots of half minute spells so you don’t have to guess how long you’ve been cleaning your teeth.

Together with virtually all high level models the cleaning head is replaceable. It comes with 2 brushing heads. It sits on a charging stand and this model has a case that holds 2 brush heads – therefore this is a worthy choice for carrying on trips.

It comes with 1 speed and three brushing modes: massage mode, clean mode and sensitive mode. The facility of a variety of modes and speeds can be of benefit in situations where a number of users may be using the toothbrush. If that is the situation each individual must use an alternate brush-head.

The Sonicare FlexCare HX6902, as is the norm, is a rechargeable brush and comes with a charge gauge to inform you of what charge is left in the internal battery. The time needed to fully charge the Philips is 26 hours. Each recharge is supposed to give you 56 mins of twice daily use or 56 however its said to be prudent to maintain the batteries fully charged following every use.

At the end of the day the Philips Sonicare FlexCare HX6902 is simply a superb electric toothbrush and it is provided with a warranty for 24 months. This particular example is relatively leisurely to recharge but it is better than average with relation to the cleaning action. However it is run of the mill in respect of it’s charge capacity.
