Troubleshooting

My gums are tender after using my Sonicare toothbrush?

Sometimes your gums feel tender after brushing with an electric Philips Sonicare toothbrush. Find out what could be the cause and how to prevent it.

Common causes and solutions

If you have gum disease, if you haven't used an electric toothbrush before or haven't maintained regular gum care, some tenderness may occur. Apply only light pressure on the Sonicare when brushing your teeth and gums. Your gums should become less tender within a few days of use. If you still have concerns, consult your dental professional.
