Instructions to use your Philips Sonicare Toothbrush

  1. Wet the bristles of the brush head
  2. Apply a small amount of toothpaste
  3. Place the bristles against your teeth at a 45° angle, towards the gum line
  4. Press the power button to start brushing
  5. Apply light pressure and move the brush head slowly across the teeth in a small back-and-forth motion, allowing the brush to do the work
  6. Continue this motion throughout your brushing cycle

Some Philips Sonicare Toothbrush models come with a Quadpacer feature. If you have the Quadpacer feature, you can divide your mouth into four sections (see image step 6). The Quadpacer will vibrate intermittently to tell you to move on to the next section.

Note: Do not scrub. To maximise, only apply light pressure and let the toothbrush do the brushing for you

Become a pro

  • Close your mouth as much as needed to prevent toothpaste splattering. Turn the brush on
  • Hold the handle with a light grip. Do not grip the handle, but hold it gently at the edges. Switch the toothbrush on, and glide the brush across your teeth, gently, allowing the brush to do the work
  • To maximise effectiveness, apply only light pressure and let the toothbrush do the brushing for you
  • Do not scrub
  • If your Sonicare has the Quadpacer feature, you can make sure you brush evenly throughout the mouth by dividing your mouth into 4 sections and using the Quadpacer feature to brush each section for an equal amount of time
