There are three different types of Sonicare brush heads. The brush head that fits your toothbrush depends on the model you own.
The click-on brush head is the standard brush head and fits most of our Sonicare rechargeable toothbrushes.
The screw-on brush head is compatible with the old Sonicare Essence models.
The Philips One brush head is only compatible with the Philips One.
Click-on brush head
There are two types of brush head: Snap/Click-on and Twist/Screw-on. Below you will find details on the differences between these two types of brush heads.
The snap-on or click-on brush heads are compatible with most of our rechargeable Sonicare Toothbrush handles. These will fit all Philips Sonicare toothbrush handles except for the PowerUp Battery and Essence model, which have their own unique brush heads.
The twist-on or screw-on brush heads are our original and standard brush heads and are compatible with the old models of toothbrushes.
EXCEPTION: The Philips One toothbrush is only compatible with Philips One brush heads.
Screw-on brush head
You can identify the Smart brush heads by the Smart icon at the base of the brush head as shown in the image below. A microchip in the Philips Sonicare Smart brush head tells your DiamondClean Smart which brush head you are using. So if you click on a gum-care brush head, for example, your toothbrush knows to select the optimal mode and intensity for that brush head.
If none of these tips solved your issue and you still do not know which brush head fits your toothbrush, please contact us for further support.
Philips One brush head
Philips One brush heads are also click-on. However, they may only be used with the Philips One toothbrush.
Smart toothbrush heads
Smart toothbrush heads are equipped to tell your toothbrush which brush head you are using. The toothbrush will then select the optimal mode and intensity. You can recognise a smart toothbrush head by the smart icon at the lower bottom of the brush head.
