BenefitsThere are several benefits to using the Phillips Sonicare Advance 4700 rechargeable toothbrush. Using this toothbrush makes your teeth whiter because it greatly reduces tobacco, coffee and tea stains. The Phillips Sonicare Company even offers a money back guarantee, with no questions asked, if you don't notice an improvement within 28 days. Another benefit is that it has been clinically proven to reduce 20% more plaque than a manual toothbrush and it has softer bristles, so you don't have to use as much pressure on your teeth and gums. In my opinion, the most important benefit that this amazing toothbrush offers is that it makes your gums healthier. By having healthy gums, you greatly reduce your risk factors for gum disease and bone loss.
How It WorksThe Sonicare toothbrush was invented by a team of periodontists (dentists that specialize in the treatment of gum disease) and bioengineers at the University of Washington. The Sonicare toothbrush has a built in microprocessor that allows the bristle tips to move 3 times faster than other electric toothbrushes while moving in the back and forth motion that is recommended by dentists. The powerful cleaning action of this toothbrush gets plaque below the gumline as well as deep in between the teeth.
Our mouths are divided into 4 sections (quadrants), which consist of the upper left teeth, upper right teeth, lower left teeth and lower right teeth. The Sonicare Advance 4700 has a built in timer that goes off every 30 seconds for up to 2 minutes. This allows you to spend 30 seconds brushing each quadrant for the full 2 minutes that most dentists recommend.
