Using your Sonicare
1 Wet the bristles and apply a small amount of toothpaste.
2 Place the toothbrush bristles against the teeth at a slight angle
towards the gumline.
3 Press the power on/off button to turn on the Sonicare.
4 Apply light pressure to maximize Sonicare’s effectiveness and let the
Sonicare toothbrush do the brushing for you.
5 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
feature (see chapter ‘Features’).
6 Begin brushing in section 1 (outside top teeth) and brush for 30
seconds before moving to section 2 (inside top teeth). Continue
brushing in section 3 (outside bottom teeth) and brush for 30
seconds before moving to section 4 (inside bottom teeth).
7 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 turned 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 (ﬁ llings, crowns, veneers)
Note: The toothbrush may be turned off at any time by pressing and holding
the power on/off button for 2 seconds.
