Philips is becoming a leader in dental hygiene and this is seen with their low cost, highly rated Philips Consumer Lifestyle HX6511/50 Easy Clean Toothbrush.
With patented sonic technology, the HX6511 is able to remove twice the plaque than that of a manual toothbrush. With a smart timer and interval timers, users are able to take full control over their dental cleaning habits. Let’s take a look at what makes the EasyClean a very good and popular toothbrush.
Sonic Cleaning Power
Manual brushing simply cannot compare to its electric counterpart. Sonic technology provides an impressive 31,000 movements every minute. These movements are precise and will push your saliva in between your teeth and gums to ensure that every nook and cranny is cleaned to perfection.
This Philips model has been clinically tested to remove 2 times the plaque of a manual brush. This leaves teeth and gums cleaner and reduces the chances of gum disease and cavities. With the EasyClean, it has been shown that far more plaque is removed in hard to reach places than what is seen with manual brushing. This means the back of your teeth and gums get a better overall cleaning and all possible plaque is removed. Even plaque found along the gum line is brushed away.
Brushing is only effective if a person brushes for an adequate amount of time. Dentists recommend two minutes to brush your teeth. This model includes a smart timer that will time your cleaning for precisely two minutes.
There is also a quadpacer which will time how long each quadrant of your mouth is cleaned. These intervals can be between 30 – 90 seconds. This allows you to properly brush each region of your mouth to gently remove all of the plaque that has built up and brush away any leftover food particles in the process.
Those not used to a powered toothbrush may find that the pulsations take a little bit to get used to. The Consumer Lifestyle takes care of this by allowing an easy-start cleaning cycle. This cycle lasts for two weeks and will ensure that the user gradually gets used to the brush’s full intensity.
- Easy-Start and Smartimer,
- Quadpacer Simplify Brushing

- Two Weeks of Power on a Single Charge
- ProResults Brush Head Removes Plaque Along the Gum Line
- The lack of cleaning modes is a concern
If you are in the market for a “high end electric toothbrush” seems the two real decisions are – how many bells and whistles do you want to pay for and do you go Philips or OralB. and you didn’t want to pay for all the bells and whistles that really don’t help your teeth or gums. This model seems like a happy medium point.
On the Philips/OralB decision, have always used the less expensive ones from OralB because of the toothbrush itself. At the higher end, one trusts the toothbrush itself on the OralB and Philips is a wash.
Philips seemed to have more experience and more research into the mechanics at this price point and that tilted me toward the Sonicare. Would make the same decision today after using it. All in all, nothing not to like. I would recommend this Sonicare to anyone looking.
