View larger.

Gently Cleans to Reduce Inflammation

Unlike a manual toothbrush, the Philips Sonicare FlexCare+ uses powerful Sonic technology to clean teeth with up to 31,000 movements per minute. These sweeping motions drive fluids deep into the tight spaces between your teeth and along your gum line, resulting in a cleaner, healthier mouth and less inflammation.

Improves Gum Health in Just Two Weeks

Gum health is the foundation of good oral health, yet most adults suffer from gum disease at some point in their lives. Thankfully, FlexCare+ is clinically proven to improve gum health in just two weeks.

FlexCare+ cleans along the gum line, removing plaque while stimulating gums. Less gum pain and bleeding will allow you to enjoy the brushing experience more and develop better brushing habits.

Five Brushing Modes for Customized Oral Care

FlexCare+ features five brushing modes, so you can personalize your brushing experience and address your specific oral-care needs. For improving the health of your gums, Gum Care mode provides two minutes of complete whole-mouth cleaning, followed by one minute of gentle cleaning for problem areas and along the gum line. Brushing in this mode improves gum health by reducing inflammation, recession, and bleeding. Massage mode also improves gum health by using patented technology to drive fluids between teeth to fight plaque and stimulate the gums.

Clean mode is ideal for complete, whole-mouth cleaning, while Refresh mode is for touch-ups and quick cleanings between regular brushings. Sensitive mode is extra gentle for new users or those with sensitive teeth.

Illuminated Display Indicates Selected Mode

When FlexCare+ is turned on, unique backlighting indicates which of the five brushing modes you have selected. When the brush is turned off, the display becomes invisible for a clean, sleek look.

Easy-Start, Smartimer, and Quadpacer Simplify Brushing

FlexCare+ 5500 makes it easy to care for your oral health. You need to apply only light pressure when using this toothbrush--FlexCare+ will do the brushing for you. For further convenience, the Sonicare FlexCare+ features an Easy-start option that gently increases the toothbrush's power over the first 12 uses, so you can gradually adjust to the Sonic technology.

FlexCare+ also features two timers that ensure proper brushing technique and effective results. Smartimer encourages you to brush for a full two minutes, the time recommended by dental professionals, while Quadpacer beeps in 30-second intervals to make sure you thoroughly brush all four quadrants of your mouth.

ProResults Brush Heads Remove Plaque Along the Gum Line

Two brush heads are included with FlexCare+:a Standard ProResults brush head and a Compact ProResults brush head. Each of these contoured brush heads cleans along the gum, removing disease-causing plaque for a more thorough clean.

UV Brush-Head Sanitizer Kills Bacteria and Viruses*

FlexCare+ comes with an all-in-one sanitizing, charging, and storage unit. The multifunctional unit comes with a built-in ultraviolet brush-head sanitizer that kills up to 99 percent of bacteria and viruses on the brush head*. After you brush your teeth, simply place your brush head in the sanitizer--the sanitizer will run for 10 minutes and then automatically shut off.

For added hygiene, the toothbrush comes with three interchangeable color-code rings to identify your brush head and make sure everyone in your household uses the correct one.

Three Weeks of Power on a Single Charge

After a full 24-hour charge, FlexCare+ will provide approximately three weeks of typical use (two minutes of brushing, twice a day). A convenient recharge indicator on the brush displays the available battery life and blinks when you need to recharge.

Because FlexCare+ can last three weeks between charges, you won't need a charger for most of your travels. A travel case, two hygienic travel caps, and multi-voltage travel charger are included for further on-the-go convenience.

This toothbrush is by far the greatest toothbrush ever made. I might sound a bit extreme, but it lives up to it's expensive pricetag. I'd also like crediting it for single-handily conquering my sensitive teeth (caused by overbrushing) and bad breath. The battery life is excellent, it comes with everything you need (Even a travelling case which isn't mentioned in the item description) and two seperate brush heads, one for detailing and the other for your average cleaning. My only complaint is that it vibrates so much it will literally leave you a bit dizzy, and sweet mother of pearl don't let the back of the brush contact your teeth as it will feel like a jackhammer (it's that powerful!)

I'd recommend this to anybody-hands down.

This thing is awesome. I haven't tried them all but I highly doubt anything out there is better than this. I got it for $100. I wouldn't have paid full price but after I tried it I would gladly pay full price if and when this one dies out.

was great while it worked, unfortunately it didn't last more than 2 years. Luckily for me, I have a credit card extended warranty on this and had it replaced. I find the replacement heads too pricey as well.

You need this. Stop brushing your teeth with a twig, like a peasant. Electric toothbrushes get your mouth WAY cleaner. Trust me, you will never go back. If you're new to electric toothbrushes, it will feel a little weird at first, as the vibrations in your mouth are fairly intense. But after a week of use, you'll be totally accustomed to it, and you won't notice this sensation any more.

I bought this as a birthday gift for my brother 3 years ago and it's still going strong. He never wanted to bother trying an electric brush because he didn't believe that there would be much of a difference. After the first month, he told me that he would never go back to manual brushes, unless he was travelling. 'Till this day, I haven't heard a single negative comment from him about it. I'm just sad that I can't afford to buy one for myself as well.

Works well for cleaning teeth like other Sonicare models. This model has two charging bases, one for use at home and a small one for travelling. The charge base is dual voltage so you don't have to worry about voltage conversion when travelling abroad. The long battery life (up to three weeks, according to the manufacturer) means you often don't have to take the charger with you at all. The system includes a hard case that holds the brush plus two heads, which is nice. I only use the UV sterilizer only occasionally... I guess this feature would be better appreciated by germaphobes. The one thing I don't like about this model is that it is too easy to accidentally change modes with picking up or putting it down. Sometimes the brush will turn off after only 30 seconds of brushing because I've accidentally changed it to "Refresh" mode. One reviewer rated this model one star claiming that it costs $40 to replace the brush head each time, but a quick search on Amazon shows a 3-pack of brush heads for only $20.

Everyone's raving about this toothbrush, and I now know why. It's awesome! It does such a good job, that I actually look forward to brushing my teeth 2-3 times per day. I had a cheapo $30 oral b electronic toothbrush before this, and the two do not compare.

A worthwhile investment that will likely reduce your dental bills.

Very happy with mine. The Flexcare Plus with the ProResults brush head does a great job of keeping my teeth clean.
I think the number of modes might be a bit excessive, but I do appreciate the "refresh" mode for a quick after lunch cleaning.

The second base station is great if you travel, as is the carry case. I travel regularly for work, and with this brush being bigger any toothbrush case I've ever owned, I'm quite happy it came with one.

Only "problem" I have is the cost of replacement brush heads. I can't believe their manufacturing cost can be that high, and that the markup must be phenomenal. Unfortunately you can really tell the difference between genuine and knockoff brush heads. Any "off brand" I have tried are just garbage.
