INSTRUCTIONS
Preparing for use
Attaching the brush head
1 Align the front of the brush head with the front of the toothbrush
handle. Match the bars that are on the inside top of the removable
nut with the notches inside the top of the handle and slide the brush
head onto the handle.
English
2 Screw the brush head nut clockwise until it’s firmly tightened. If the
brush head rattles when in use, tighten the nut further.
3 Remove the travel cap from your brush head when you are ready to
brush.
4 Use the cord wrap in the bottom of the charger to store excess
cord.
Charging your Sonicare\
Sonicare comes with the batteries completely discharged and should be
charged for at least 24 hours during the first few days of use.
It is recommended that you keep your Sonicare in the charger when not
in use to maintain a full battery charge. It takes at least 24 hours to fully
charge the battery of your Sonicare toothbrush.
1 To charge your Sonicare, place the handle in the charger with the
power button facing forward. Be sure the bottom of the handle sits
back securely in the charger, making complete contact.
, When the handle is placed incorrectly in the charger, the charge
indicator light may still illuminate, but charging will not take place.
Handles of other Sonicare models do not fit in this charger and will
therefore not charge effectively. Do not attempt to force a handle into this
charger as this will cause damage.
Using the appliance
Useful tips
,
,
Place the brush head in your mouth before turning on your Sonicare
and keep your mouth closed during brushing, otherwise toothpaste
may splatter.
You may experience a slight tickling or tingling sensation when using
an electronic toothbrush such as Sonicare for the first time. As you
become accustomed to brushing with Sonicare this sensitivity will
diminish.
English
,
A fully charged Sonicare will provide approximately 2 weeks of
typical use (2 minutes of brushing twice a day), making it easy to
travel without the charger.
Remember that voltage converters and plug adapters DO NOT
guarantee voltage compatibility. Always check for voltage compatibility.
Brushing technique
Follow these simple steps to maximize your brushing experience.
45º
1 Before turning the Sonicare on, place the bristles of the brush head
on your gumline at a 45-degree angle.
2 Hold the handle with a light grip, turn the Sonicare on, and gently
move the bristles in a small circular motion so the longer bristles
reach between your teeth. After a few seconds, glide the bristles to
the next section. Continue this routine throughout your 2-minute
brushing cycle.
3 To maximize the effectiveness of your Sonicare toothbrush, use light
pressure and let the Sonicare toothbrush do the brushing for you.
Do not scrub.

4 To make sure you brush evenly throughout the mouth, divide your
mouth into 4 sections: outside top, inside top, outside bottom and
inside bottom teeth. Begin brushing in section 1 (outside top teeth)
and brush for 30 seconds before moving to section 2 (inside top
teeth). Continue brushing for 30 seconds in each section progressing
through all 4 sections until you’ve brushed for 2 minutes.
5 After the 2-minute brushing cycle is complete, additional time should
be spent brushing the chewing surfaces of your teeth.
Press the power button to turn the brush on and off as needed.
To clean your mouth more completely, you may also brush your tongue,
with the toothbrush turned on or off, as you prefer.
Tips for specific oral care needs
Stain removal
, In areas where excess staining occurs, spend extra brushing time to
assist with stain removal.
Braces
, The brush should be placed at a 45-degree angle between your
brackets and gumline. Using light pressure, gently move the bristles
in a small circular motion so the longer bristles reach between your
teeth for 2 seconds. Then gently turn (roll) the brush handle so the
bristles clean the bracket and the rest of the tooth before you glide
the bristles to the next tooth. Continue this until you have brushed
all of your teeth. Please note that brush heads will wear out sooner
when used on braces.
Dental restorations (dental work)
, Use Sonicare on dental restorations (such as implants, caps, crowns,
bridges and fillings) as you would on your natural tooth surfaces to
reduce plaque build-up and improve gum health. Work the bristles
around all the areas of the restoration for thorough cleaning.
English
Periodontal pockets
, Your dental professional may have indicated that you have
periodontal pockets, deep pockets where plaque bacteria collect. If
this is the case, after brushing for a full 2 minutes, spend extra time
gently brushing these areas to improve your gum health.
Features
Easy-start \ brushing power ramp-up
, All Sonicare models come with the Easy-start feature activated (on),
which helps you get used to brushing with Sonicare.
, Brushing power will gently increase to full power over the first 12 brushings.
, The Easy-start feature is active if you hear 2 beeps immediately after
turning on your Sonicare. Once you reach optimal brushing power
(after the 12th brushing), you will no longer hear the double beep at
the beginning of your brushing routine.
Note: Note: each of the first 12 brushings must be at least 1 minute in length
to properly move through the Easy-start ramp-up cycle.
To deactivate or activate the Easy-start feature:
1 Attach your brush head to the handle.
2 Place the handle in a plugged-in charger base.
3 To deactivate the Easy-start feature, press and hold the power
button for 5 seconds.You will hear 1 beep to indicate that the Easystart feature has been deactivated.
4 To activate the Easy-start feature, press and hold the power button
for 5 seconds.You will hear 2 beeps to indicate that the Easy-start
feature has been activated.
Using the Easy-start feature beyond the initial ramp-up period is
not recommended and reduces the effectiveness of your Sonicare
toothbrush in removing plaque.
The Easy-start feature should be deactivated and the handle fully charged
when Sonicare is used in clinical trials.
Smartimer\ 2-minute timer
, All Sonicare models come with the Smartimer feature, which
automatically sets the brushing time to the 2 minutes recommended
by dental professionals.
, After 2 minutes the Smartimer will automatically turn off the
toothbrush.
, If you wish to pause or stop brushing during your 2-minute cycle,
press the power button. Press the power button again and the
Smartimer will pick up where you left off.
, The Smartimer will automatically reset to the beginning of a 2-minute cycle if:
- brushing is paused for 30 seconds or longer;
- the handle is returned to the charger base.

Quadpacer\ 30-second interval timer (available on select
models).
, Quadpacer makes sure that you brush all sections of your mouth
evenly and thoroughly. At 30, 60 and 90 seconds, you will hear a
short beep and a pause in brushing action. This is your signal to move
to the next section of your mouth.
Battery charge indicator (available on select models).
, If your Sonicare has a low charge, you will hear 5 beeps after you
have brushed your teeth for 2 minutes and the charge indicator light
will flash rapidly.
When you hear the low charge indication, you have 3 or fewer 2-minute
brushings left.
1 Place the handle in the charger base (with the power button facing
towards you) to begin the recharging process.
, The charge indicator light flashes slowly when the handle is in the
charger base to signal charging is in progress.
, When the Sonicare is fully charged, the charge indicator light is
constantly on (not flashing), signaling that your Sonicare is ready for
use.
When not in use, keep your Sonicare in the charger base to maintain a full
battery charge.
Cleaning
By following these simple steps, you should get years of worryfree brushing:
1 Rinse brush head and bristles after each use.
