Sonicare FlexCareElectric toothbrushes have come a long way since they first became popular in the 1970s. Taking us straight into the 21st century is Philip’s latest Sonicare model, the FlexCare.

This featherweight brush packs more features and performance than any other brush on the market, with 3 brushing modes (levels of intensity) and 3 timing routines (1, 2, or 3 minutes). The Quadpacer feature will divide the brushing time into quarters, pausing briefly to let you know it’s time to move to another quadrant of you mouth so all your pearly whites get equal attention.

Other features include a long-lasting lithium-ion battery (a full charge will keep you going for 7-10 days, brushing twice a day), waterproof design (take it in the shower), traveling case, and compact charger.

The FlexCare R910 includes just the toothbrush and charger and will set you back $129.99 (free shipping) from, while the FlexCare RS930 adds a UV sanitizer for the brush heads and sells for $148.58 (free shipping) from Amazon.

If you think that’s pricey, consider what it costs to get a cavity filled, or worse. Since I jumped on the Sonicare bandwagon more than a year ago I’ve been cavity-free, which is the best endorsement I could offer for a toothbrush (and two of family members got FlexCares for Christmas from me—shut up, it’s not a lame gift!).

Like all electric toothbrushes, you’ll need to replace the brush heads, which aren’t cheap: a three-pack costs $24.99. Philips recommends replacing them every 3 months, but I’ve been able to stretch that out a few more months (previous SonicCare models used brushes that were rated good for 6 months, and often could last 9 or more without losing effectiveness).
