A high grade powered toothbrush made by Philips the Sonicare HealthyWhite HX6711 has most features along with a higher price tag.

There’s a 2 minute timer with four lots of half minute spells one for each quadrant – the recommended cleaning time but no pressure indicator.

Sonic brushes, like this electric brush are at the leading edge of powered toothbrush engineering. A sonic wave reverberates, disturbing the bacterial plaque clinging to the teeth and beneath the tooth / gum junction at the bottom of teeth.

The Sonicare HealthyWhite HX6711, in common with the majority, is a rechargeable brush and incorporates a power indicator stopping you from being left with a flat battery. To fully charge the Sonicare HealthyWhite HX6711 takes 24 hours. Staying with twice daily brushing the battery life is 42 mins (equivalent to 10 days) until a recharge is needed but with the latest rechargeable batteries its probably prudent to maintain them charged.

As seems to be the norm the cleaning head is detachable. A single head is provided when you buy this toothbrush. This rechargeable brush is provided with a charging cradle and furthermore this model has a protective case that can carry two brush-heads – therefore good for taking on trips.

With this toothbrush there is only one speed and two modes (clean and white and clean). For individuals with sensitive teeth the ability to use a selection of brushing speeds and modes can be a valuable aspect.

At the end of the day the Philips Sonicare HealthyWhite HX6711 achieves very capably and it comes packaged provided with a guarantee for 24 months. This specific Philips is above average with relation to brushing action which is the main ingredient of any electric toothbrush yet it is unremarkable in respect of it’s charge duration. Also it is poor with respect of the charge capacity.
