The newest electric toothbrush from Sonicare is the Flexcare RS940. it's more than a toothbrush and delivers amazing results when used on a daily basis.

This toothbrush honestly does live up to the promise of giving you that "just from the dentist" clean feeling. I was amazed and have been telling everyone about it. My husband has problems with his gums and since he's been using the Flexcare his dentist has seen such dramatic improvements in the health of my husband's gums that the dentist is now recommending the Flexcare to all his patients.

The Flexcare is an improved version of the Sonicare Elite, which is a good product. But the Flexcare is even better! It's smaller than the Elite and you won't feel as much vibration with the Flexcare. Some of the other electric toothbrushes I've tried tend to "fling" toothpaste and water everywhere while you're brushing. That is not the case with this brush.

Your whole brushing routine can be customized by choosing between the two different brushing routines - Go Care or Max Care. If you're in a hurry, GoCare gives you a 1 minute timed brushing cycle. MaxCare gives you a 3 minute timed brushing cycle. The brush signals you when you've reached the alloted time by slowing down. Also, if you're pushing too hard the brush head will slow down.

There are also three different brushing modes to choose from - clean, sensitive, and massage. I like the sensitive setting, hubby likes the clean & massage settings. The massage setting is really good for him because of his gum problems.

Oh, and did I mention that the Flexcare has a built in UV sanitizer? Now that's something to get excited about, especially if you're a germ-a-phobe like me! The sanitizer kills 99% of certain types of bacteria and viruses that can be hiding on your toothbrush, and it only takes 10 minutes to sanitize.

I can't say enough good things about the Flexcare and highly recommend this product.
