have just ordered myself - thank you Elbuc!
Glad to help! :)
(highfive) (highfive) (highfive) Thank you ever so much for your help, people like yourself are what makes this site most useful and a pleasure to frequent. I was lost with all the options prior to your input. (y)
The more expensive brushes have up to 3 brushing modes and 3 intensity settings. The brushing modes are something like gum health (or deep clean), normal and whitening. The gum health is just a less intense brush, but when I had that one I never, ever used it. The whitening is just the same as normal but with a slightly different vibration rhythm, but cleans exactly the same as normal. The Sonicare brushes with deep clean mode (like THIS ONE) don't have the gum health mode, instead they have 3 intensity settings. These settings are normal, less intense and even less intense, and each of these settings can be used for deep clean, normal and whitening modes. So essentially they just make your brush less effective, not more. Unless you have super sensitive gums that are swollen with an infection, or that bleed easily or whatever. Some models have a UV sanitiser thing which is completely unnecessary and just another gimmick unless you regularly clean your toilet bowl with the brush. Seriously, the £35 Easyclean one will do everything you need unless you are Bleeding Gums Murphy...
Could you elaborate on the problem gums? Thanks again, really apppreciate the input.
