Maintaining good oral care habits—and figuring out ways to improve your oral health—can be tricky, even with regular trips to your dentist. The Philips Sonicare app knows your smile says a lot about you and when it comes to your brushing technique, there are two things you’ll want to be confident in: first, that your mouth is getting a complete clean, and second, that your teeth and gums are healthy and protected.
Sonicare’s Innovation team partners directly with Dental Professionals to ensure you get the most advanced and beneficial solutions, for a healthy mouth and confident smile.
In the Philips Sonicare App:
The Progress Report connects to your Sonicare toothbrush to collect your brushing habits. Each week, you will receive an accurate, easy-to-read report, giving you personalized brushing insights you need to improve and maintain your healthy smile, for life.
Want whiter teeth, healthier gums, or fresher breath? Set a goal with the Sonicare App, and it will follow your progress, giving you personalized progress feedback along the way.
Realtime guidance, as you brush. Mouth Map monitors your brushing pressure and shows you the spots you’ve missed, ensuring consistent, healthy and complete coverage, every time you brush. Simply sync the App to your Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart or Philips Sonicare FlexCare Platinum connected toothbrush and let the App guide you to a cleaner, happier smile.
The dentist is ready to see you! With Sonicare’s Teledentistry solutions, get a personalized, comprehensive dental evaluation from a Licensed Dental Professional, within 24 hours. Just some quick background info and a few photos of your mouth, Teledentistry solutions means there’s no need to wait.
Communicate with your dentist between visits by sending your oral care goals and progress reports to your dentist, directly. And by recording your trouble spots (like gum recession or cavities), the Philips Sonicare app provides personalized, dentist-approved advice. The Sonicare app helps you be mindful of check-ups and will remind you when it’s time for your next appointment.
Automatic Brush Head Re-ordering Service**
Never run out of replacement brush heads again. The Sonicare app monitors your brush head’s actual usage and the brush head re-ordering service automatically delivers replacement brush heads at just the right time.
Brushing, dental hygiene and Dental Professional features in the Philips Sonicare app require Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart or FlexCare Platinum connected toothbrushes. Teledentistry features can be accessed without connecting a Philips Sonicare device.
Certain Sonicare app features, like Mouth Map, Oral Health Coach and Goals Tracker are available to users with either a DiamondClean Smart or a FlexCare Platinum Connected toothbrush.
* Teledentistry solutions are currently available in the United States
** The brush head re-ordering service is available in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain and Italy.

Ratings and Reviews
A bit of refining needed
No idea why all the bad reviews??
The app guides you round a thorough clean of your teeth so for nothing else you ensure an equal amount of time spent on all areas. There are 3-4 sections though that struggle to detect that you brushed in that area so this needs some attention. It definitely is a good reminder to brush floss and use mouth wash..... it acts as your guilty conscience!
Overall a great toothbrush and a good app.
Update 5th Jun app broken after update opens and shuts down immediately...where was the quality control??
Broken (still broken)
Edit: it still crashes after the latest update
Edit: like so many other people the app crashes as soon as it connects to the toothbrush. Maybe time to use the EU rules to ask for a total refund. Pretty poor for this not to be fixed for so long.
It works pretty well for me but there’s a few very basic options that would be so easy to add and make this so much better.
- option to alternate start teeth each time. You have the most toothpaste at the start, so why always start at the same place every single day?
- button to ‘extend’ time in a zone. So while it’s ticking down you could tap a button on the app to add another 10 seconds. It often gets it wrong where you’re brushing and I waste a lot of time either moving so it realises or brushing again.
- option to add extra time for biting surfaces. Brushing back teeth outer/inner AND biting surfaces in the time it gives properly is not easy.
- extended time. 2 minutes is the MINIMUM recommended brushing time by dentists NOT the exact time. There should be an option to extend the time to 3/4 or even 5 minutes. This is made worse by the app only using 2 minutes for deep clean mode too.
I noticed that if you need touch up in 5 zones the brush continues to the 6th while the app says you’re done. I wonder if you took a shortcut in the firmware to fix it to a 2 minute cycle on Bluetooth and that’s also why deep clean is also limited to 2 minutes.
An update made it unusable - but now fixed.
Edited on 18 June: I updated the app with the version released yesterday. Initially it seemed to make no difference, the app still crashed on opening. As a last resort I decided to delete the app & reinstall it. This went well & the app is now working again.
I would give this app 0 stars if I could. I run it on an iPhone XR which I keep updated. I updated this app to version 6 on 4th June and it hasn’t worked since then. It won’t open and just keeps returning to the home screen. I’m obviously not the only one affected but I wonder how many reports it will take before the developers do something. One of their responses suggests always use the latest version of iOS & the app!! which is exactly what’s caused the problem. My suggestion is that they need to do some work to make the app useable again, rather than try to shift the blame to the users.
