If you want to purchase Sonicare brush heads products, visit our products section below.

Sonicare is one of the best electric toothbrushes available on the market. While a good electric toothbrush will help you keep your teeth clean and your gums healthy, we have to give some of the credits for the brush head as well. To be effective, Sonicare brush heads have to be change every 3 months to give optimal brushing results.

Before purchasing your Sonicare brush heads, it is also important to determine what type of brush head suits you the best. You basically have the choice between the ProResults and the E-series.

Because the new FlexCare+ handle and ProResults brush heads are different from the previous Sonicare e-series brush handles and brush heads, the e-series brush heads are NOT compatible with FlexCare+ handles while the ProResults series brush heads are NOT compatible with the e-series handles.

The ProResults brush head unlike the e-series brush head has an improved design allowing for a faster movement with no magnet or metal parts, and uses less plastic to support the head itself, making easier to replace and more environmentally friendly.


ProResults v. e-series Sonicare brush heads.

As I mentioned above, each Sonicare toothbrush model fits a specific type of Sonicare brush head. While both type of brush were shown to be effective, there are several differences between them, and the ProResults is a higher end product that will give you significant advantages, which can influence you into choosing a Sonicare toothbrush model over one that is only compatible with the E-series Sonicare brush heads. Let see what advantages and disadvantages each model have.

Convenience : ProResults brush heads

One of the biggest advantage of the ProResults Sonicare toothbrush heads are the way that the replacement head is fixed to the handle. Because it snaps into place, unlike the E-series heads that are screwed onto the handle, it is much easier to replace or interchange the brushes between many users.

Cleanliness : ProResults Sonicare brush heads

Another great advantage of the ProResults is the fact that there are less “holes” and nooks than in the e-series due to changing heads every day when the handle is used by many users in the household, giving less opportunities for goop to accumulate in the cracks. Therefore, ProResults toothbrushes and heads will results in an overall cleaner toothbrush over time, and may be more appealing to some consumers.

On the other hand, if you are not planning on sharing your best electric toothbrush handle, these disadvantages of the e-series may not be a problem for you.

Stability and fixation : E-series Sonicare toothbrush heads

One of the big advantage of the E-series is that, because you have to screw it tight, some electric toothbrush owners feel that the E-series heads fixes more firmly to the handle of their Sonicare than the ProResults do.

The Bristles : ProResults toothbrush heads

One of the most important difference between the Sonicare brush heads ProResults vs E-Series is the design of the bristles. Because the ProResults heads have a much larger and wider head, therefore a larger bristled portion, resulting in a wider sweeping motion and a more efficient brushing. The ProResults also features a longer head than the E-Series Sonicare brush heads, making back teeth more accessible with this brush head for many people who have problems accessing their rear teeth.

The Cost : ProResults Sonicare brush heads

The handles that use the E-series heads are, with no doubt, much more affordable than the handles that use the ProResults heads. However, the ProResults heads themselves are more inexpensive than the the E-series heads (E-Series – $30 for a pack of two, ProResults – $30 for a pack of three).

Overall, the ProResults is the favorite and of most people. Also, this head was specially designed for the best electric toothbrush on the market, the Sonicare Flexcare. The Philips Sonicare Flexcare Rechargeable Sonic Toothbrush with or without Sanitizer is a great toothbrush, and the duo Flexcare/ProResults will keep you and your dentist happy.
