Gently Cleans to Reduce Inflammation

Unlike a manual toothbrush, the Philips Sonicare FlexCare Plus 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 Plus is clinically proven to improve gum health in just two weeks.

FlexCare Plus 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 Plus 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 Plus 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 Plus 5500 makes it easy to care for your oral health. You need to apply only light pressure when using this toothbrush–FlexCare Plus will do the brushing for you. For further convenience, the Sonicare FlexCare Plus 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 Plus 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 Plus: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 Plus 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 (E. coli, S. mutans, and herpes simplex). 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 Plus 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 Plus 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.
