In addition to the two-minute timer preventing over-brushing, the "Quadpacer" timer encourages equal brushing of each quadrant of your mouth by emitting a short beep and a pause in brushing action at 30-second interval. For first-time power toothbrush users there's also a function that gently increases brushing power over 14 uses.
Power toothbrushes have been shown as beneficial to gingival health and a reduction in plaque and according to Philips, 64% of dental professionals personally used a power toothbrush rather than a manual model Sonicare system during the past three years.
The Sonicare Elite is now available in Europe and the US. Follow the links below to learn more.
