I’m all about good oral health. I brush twice a day, floss every evening, and always rinse with a mouthwash. But it seems I’m in the minority, because official statistics indicate that an estimated 90% of South Africans suffer from gum disease at some point in their life.
What causes gum disease?
Poor oral health, that’s what!
Plaque forms a film of bacteria between your teeth & gums, that if not properly removed can lead to gum disease and a range of non-communicable diseases like diabetes and coronary heart disease. Yikes!
Now, I’ve been using an electric toothbrush for close on 10 years and honestly, I could NEVER go back to a normal hand-held one because really, your teeth & mouth just feel so much cleaner.
You can image my extreme excitement when I received the new Philips Sonicare DiamondClean electric toothbrush to try out & review. It’s biggest selling point is that it removes up to 7 x more plaque than a regular, manual toothbrush thanks to the densely packed, high quality bristles.
Aside from the fact that it’s also available in a gorgeous millennial pink colour, it boasts 5 modes to cover all your brushing needs:
Clean – For exceptional cleaning
Polish – To brighten & polish teeth
White – Removes surface stains
Sensitive – gently cleans teeth & gums
Gum Care – Gently cleans and massages gums
You can also get a whiter smile in just one week with the DiamondClean brush head, while improving your gum health in just two weeks.
And for someone like who is always on the go, often attending launches in different cities, the deluxe USB travel case doubles up as a charger!
For home charging, the sleek glass charger doubles as a glass for rinsing after brushing.
To activate charge, you simply place the toothbrush into the glass to enjoy two weeks of regular use from a single full charge.

Remember, your teeth & gums are an investment so look after them properly!
