      InterCare Brush Heads Remove Seven Times More Plaque

      FlexCare's InterCare brush heads provide a gentle yet effective brushing experience. Extra-long bristles reach deep between teeth and along the gum line to thoroughly remove up to 7X more plaque in hard-to-reach areas than a manual toothbrush while polishing and cleaning the surface of the teeth for a brighter, healthier smile. Shown to improve gum health in just two weeks, FlexCare Platinum's focused cleaning helps reduce and prevent bleeding and inflamed gums.

      Personalized Cleaning Experience

      FlexCare Platinum offers a total of nine different brushing combinations with three cleaning modes and three intensity settings. Mode selection can only be made before turning the power on. Choose from clean, white, or gum care modes and low, medium, or high intensity settings for a cleaning experience that meets your needs.

      Pressure Sensor and Timers Simplify Brushing

      FlexCare Platinum features a built-in pressure sensor to help reduce aggressive brushing. If you're applying too much pressure while brushing, the handle will alert you by gently vibrating. The Smartimer beeps when you've brushed for two minutes, the time recommended by dental professionals, while the Quadpacer beeps in 30-second intervals to make sure you thoroughly brush all four quadrants of your mouth.

      Long Battery Life and Convenient Travel Case

      With a lithium ion battery, you won't have to worry about running out of power while traveling. When fully charged, the FlexCare Platinum's battery will last through three weeks of regular use. And, thanks to the compact charger and case, it's easy to take your Sonicare toothbrush wherever you go.

      Reminder Bristles

      When the reminder bristles fade from blue to white, you'll know it's time to replace the brush head. For best results, the American Dental Association recommends changing your brush head every three months.
