How often should I replace my Philips Sonicare Brush Head

Published on 27 February 2024
It is recommended to replace your Philips Sonicare Brush Head every three months of normal use (brushing twice a day) or when the blue indicator bristles wear out. One reason is that brush heads can get weary and will be less effective in removing plaque. 

Note: Some Philips Sonicare toothbrushes have a brush head reminder feature. The replacement icon on the handle will start to flash when it's time to replace your brush head. You can expect the reminder to come up approximately every three months of normal use (brushing twice a day for about 2 minutes).

If you still are unsure when to replace your brush head, please contact us for further support.
