Which One Should You Buy?

You might be wondering that at the end of the day, both Essence Plus and Essence do an equally (almost) good job at cleaning your teeth. That’s true. However, why go for the old when you can enjoy the newest model for the same price?

Also, the new brush head system that simply snaps on is worth the upgrade on its own. Not only does it make it easier to swap brushes, but it gives you a lot more options at what brush head to use.

Overall, the Essence+ and Essence both are entry-level electric toothbrushes, and if you’re looking for more powerful features and better dental care, you should look at the Sonicare DiamondClean or FlexCare.
