A built-in pressure sensor lets you know if you’re brushing too hard, to help protect your teeth and gums. BrushSync technology tracks how long you’ve been using your brush head, and how hard you’ve been brushing. When it’s time to replace your brush head, the light on your handle lets you know – something that was missing from my previous electric toothbrush. Once you’ve finished with your used brush head, all Philips Sonicare brush heads are recyclable with TerraCycle.
