Philips Sonicare HX5610 customer reports
The latest model revision in the essence 5600 range of electric toothbrushes, the Philips Sonicare HX5610 is the base Sonicare toothbrush and therefore the cheapest. Read more about it in this Philips Sonicare HX5610 Review.
It basically aims to deliver all the benefits of a sonic toothbrush at an inexpensive price. As a result, it is a no-plain package, but still provides the great cleaning performance than its more expensive counterparts. While the Philips Sonicare HX5610 Essence 5600 doesn’t have some of the more elaborate functions found in other models higher up the range, all the essential bits are left intact and complete. So, if you want a sonic toothbrush that just gets the job done without paying for all the extra bells and whistles, then the Sonicare HX5610 will be the one for you.
The significant feature of a Sonicare toothbrush lies, of course, in the sonic technology. Unlike standard electric toothbrushes, which have an oscillating head, a Sonicare toothbrush, such as the HX5610, vibrates extremely quickly which, along with the motorized, power-driven action of cleaning your teeth by scrubbing with the bristles, practically disrupts plaque build-up in harder to reach areas. This results in twice the amount of plaque being removed in comparison with using a manual toothbrush.
The effectiveness of an electric toothbrush depends not only on its type of action and on correct use, but also on the condition of the brush head, which loses its effectiveness over time due to bristle breakdown and wear. Most manufacturers, as well as dental professionals, recommend that heads be changed every three to six months at minimum, or as soon as the brush head has visibly deteriorated. HX5610’s bristles are of good quality and would normally last more than 6 months before it begin to show early start of wear on its brush. However, replacement for brush heads cost about the same as those of the higher models. They should be replaced every three months, so in the long term this is where the real costs lie, although to be fair to the HX5610 this is true of every electric toothbrush.
The HX5610 Essence 5600 has a very straightforward design and while it is a little bumpier than the higher models, it is still very comfortable to use with a nice soft grip handle. The included toothbrush head has an angled neck to help you reach the tighter and hard-to-reach spots.
The HX5610 Essence 5600 has a wonderful ‘easy-start’ feature, which essentially starts cleaning your teeth more gently than usual to help you and your gums get used to the new experience. This model also has a built-in two-minute timer to help you brush sufficiently for the right quantity of time.
