Using the 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 switch on the Sonicare.
Apply light pressure to maximise the 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 (see chapter 'Features').
Begin brushing in section 1 (outside of upper teeth) and brush for 30
seconds before moving to section (inside of upper teeth). Continue
brushing in section 3 (outside of lower teeth) and brush for 30
seconds before moving to section 4 (inside of lower 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 switched 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)

not between routines. Routines have to be selected before you switch on the
