Philips is a pioneer in sonic toothbrushes and this year, the Dutch manufacturer brought the latest addition dubbed Philips Sonicare 9900 Prestige to the lineup.
In all honesty, smart toothbrushes are nothing new but for this one, Philips has been working on them for several years. The latest wants to attract attention with a premium model with the support of artificial intelligence and an application that will tell you how to improve your tooth brushing.
The brush has SenseIQ technology, which adapts the cleaning of teeth during the process, individually according to each user. In practice, this works by the brush using the pressure and movement sensors the user develops.
Customers might have had monitoring of cleaning through the application in the past years. This time, the brush can use artificial intelligence to improve cleaning habits, thanks to the mentioned sensors.
Many users apply too much pressure during cleaning, which is not entirely correct. In this case, the brush can automatically reduce the cleaning intensity.
Cleaning reports will then be sent to users on a regular basis, for example, every day, week, or month. Every owner of Philips Sonicare 9900 Prestige will know where they are making mistakes in brushing their teeth.
As a premium toothbrush model, the Philips Sonicare 9900 Prestige will be sold with an elegant vegan leather case. The charging itself takes place via USB-C directly added to the case, so the owner doesn’t have to remove the brush as before.
The price has not been announced yet, but ordinary Philips Sonic brushes cost from 100 to 300 € so that you can expect an even higher price with such a premium model. At least, Philips has decided that the Sonicare 9900 Prestige will be available in markets from April 2020.
