Note: To keep the battery fully charged at all times, you may keep your
Sonicare on the charger when not in use. It takes at least 24 hours to fully
charge the battery.
Using your Sonicare
Wet the bristles and apply a small amount of toothpaste.
Place the toothbrush bristles against the teeth at a slight angle
towards the gumline.
Press the power on/off button to turn on the Sonicare.
Apply light pressure to maximize Sonicare's effectiveness and let the
Sonicare toothbrush do the brushing for you.
Gently move the brush head slowly across the teeth in a small back
and forth motion so the longer bristles reach between your teeth.
Continue this motion throughout your brushing cycle.
Note: To make sure you brush evenly throughout the mouth, divide your mouth
into 4 sections using the Quadpacer® feature (see chapter 'Features').
Begin brushing in section 1 (outside top teeth) and brush for 30
seconds before moving to section 2 (inside top teeth). Continue
brushing in section 3 (outside bottom teeth) and brush for 30
seconds before moving to section 4 (inside bottom teeth).
After you have completed the brushing cycle, you can
spend additional time brushing the chewing surfaces of your teeth
and areas where staining occurs. You may also brush your tongue,
with the toothbrush turned on or off, as you prefer.
Your Sonicare is safe to use on:
Braces (brush heads wear out sooner when used on braces)
Dental restorations (fillings, crowns, veneers)
Personalizing your brushing experience
Sonicare automatically starts in the default Clean mode. To personalize
Prior to turning on the Sonicare, press the Personalized Brushing
button to toggle between modes and routines.
The green LED indicates selected mode or routine.
Note: When the toothbrush is turned on, you can switch between modes but
not between routines. Routines should be selected prior to brushing.
Standard mode for superior teeth cleaning.
