Question

Is it normal for my gums to be tender after using the Sonicare toothbrush?

Answer

If you have a gum disease, if you haven’t been using 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.
