How to change the modes and intensity settings on my Philips Sonicare toothbrush
If you would like to change the brushing modes or intensity settings on your Philips Sonicare toothbrush, find out you can do so below.
Changing the brushing modes
Your Sonicare toothbrush comes with 5 different modes to accommodate all your oral health needs (some models come with 4 brushing modes only): Clean, White+, Gum Health, Deep Clean and Tongue Care (Specific models only). To change the brushing modes on your Philips Sonicare toothbrush, follow these simple steps: 1. Turn off your Philips Sonicare toothbrush 2. Press the mode/intensity button (or the power button if you have a Philips Sonicare DiamondClean) to change and select the preferred brushing mode 3. Your Philips Sonicare toothbrush will remember the selected mode for your next brushing session. The above steps work for Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart, ExpertClean, Expert Results, and Protective Clean 5100 and 6100 Series. Note: The brushing modes settings may vary depending on the toothbrush handle and not all Sonicare toothbrush models have brushing modes available.
Changing the intensity settings
Your Sonicare toothbrush gives you the option to choose between 3 different intensity levels: low, medium and high. Based on the brush head you attach, the intensity will be selected automatically. If you wish to change to a different intensity, you can do so by pressing the mode/intensity button while brushing. Note: The above steps work for Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart, ExpertClean, Expert Results, Protective Clean 5100 and 6100 Series. For Sonicare toothbrush handles with an Intensity Level Panel on the handle, press the intensity panel up or down to adjust the intensity level.
