What do the symbols on my Philips Sonicare ExpertClean toothbrush mean?
Your Philips Sonicare ExpertClean toothbrush comes with smart notifications and symbols, such as intensity settings, pressure sensor, brush head replacement reminder, and a battery indicator. Find out below what these notifications and symbols mean.
Your Philips Sonicare toothbrush comes with three different intensity settings: low, medium, and high. When attached, the brush head will automatically select the recommended intensity. To manually change the intensity, you can simply turn ON the handle and press the mode/intensity button.
Note: Your brush heads must have BrushSync technology capability for the intensity setting to be selected automatically when attached. The following toothbrush head models have BrushSync technology: C3 Premium Plaque Control, G3 Premium Gum Care, W3 Premium White, W DiamondClean.
Your Philips Sonicare ExpertClean toothbrush measures the pressure you apply while brushing to protect your gums and teeth. If you apply too much pressure, you will notice a change in vibration until you reduce the pressure.
Brush Head Replacement reminder
Your Philips Sonicare ExpertClean toothbrush will track the wear of your smart brush head. It measured it by:

The total time you have brushed with your brush head
Once your brush head is no longer effective or are worn out, the Brush Head Replacement reminder icon on the handle will blink amber. This indicates that it is recommended to change your brush head.
