The goal of World Oral Health Day 2022 is to actively promote the significance of excellent oral health and raise awareness about its influence on a person’s overall health.
Oral health includes the health of the gums, hard and soft palates, mouth and throat linings, tongue, lips, salivary glands, chewing muscles, and upper and lower jaws. Oral health and general health are inextricably linked since oral illnesses can cause infection, inflammation, and other negative consequences on overall health.
That said in conjunction with this auspicious day for dentists all around the world, we have reviewed the Phillips Sonicare 3100 rechargeable sonic toothbrush for more gentle yet effective cleaning.
Some would have this lingering question in their heads, like what’s the point of an electric toothbrush when you could actually save up so much more when it comes to a normal one instead? Well, based on some research, it is known that electric toothbrushes are considerably superior to manual toothbrushes in terms of cleaning teeth and gums. Individuals who use an electric toothbrush have healthier gums, less tooth decay, and keep their teeth for longer than those who use a manual toothbrush.
Let’s get to the design aspect of the Phillips Sonicare 3100 which comes with an ergonomic design that is pretty stylish and easy to keep clean. The 3100 is designed to be a more entry-level toothbrush, but it actually packs quite a punch and really does have all that you actually need.
With Philips Sonicare 3100, you can enjoy a new level of cleanliness. It eliminates up to thrice as much plaque as a manual toothbrush, which aids in the prevention of cavities. Its angled brush head gives easier access to back teeth and other difficult-to-reach areas.
The powerful sonic technology of Philips Sonicare pulses water between teeth and its brush strokes break up plaque and whisk it away for an excellent daily clean. It is certainly a simple start to creating your very own Philips Sonicare routine. Plus the built-in pressure sensor detects the pressure you apply, notifies you, and automatically lessens the toothbrush vibrations to help preserve your gums. As a reminder to slack off the pressure, the toothbrush will create a pulsating sound. This feature aided 7 out of 10 participants in becoming better brushers.
What’s fantastic about using an electronic toothbrush is that it has a 2-minute SmarTimer and a 30-second QuadPacer to guide you through brushing for the required time in all parts of your mouth to achieve a thorough clean.
Plus, rather than being a blur and not knowing when it’s time to replace your brush heads, the Philips Sonicare 3100 has BrushSync technology, which measures how long you’ve been using your brush head and how hard you’ve been brushing. When it’s time to replace it, the BrushSync replacement reminder on your handle and a short beep alert you.
As someone who is so used to manual brushing just like everyone else, it was amusing to observe how fast I learned to use this electric toothbrush. With its Easy-Start programme, it provides you with the choice of a slow, moderate increase in brushing strength the first 14 times you use your new toothbrush, which is ideal for individuals who are new to using this type of brush.
There is a recess in the base of the handle. The charging pin on top of the charging stand slides into this slot to facilitate wireless charging of the internal battery, which should last for 14+ days on a full charge.
The brush will illuminate the battery warning LED when the power is low. To completely recharge, simply place it on the included charging stand for up to 24 hours. More details may be found in the ‘Battery Life’ section of this review.
The 3100 Series is offered in a variety of variants. Technically, they’re all the same; the only variation is the colour of the handle and the contents inside the box. I have the HX3671/54 model, which is black in colour and costs RM 279.00.
I’d be delighted to utilise the Sonicare 3100 series on a regular basis. Putting aside the toothbrush’s ergonomic design, it has all of the essential features I seek in an electric toothbrush.
Though some may believe that it’s still on the pricier side, if you have to start somewhere, I highly recommend the Philips Sonicare 3100. Plus, it feels and looks expensive in comparison to some of the alternatives available.
