    Does anyone here use....

    My Sonicare toothbrush crapped out after 5great years. My question is, does anyone use Sonicare, and is there ANYWHERE in Thailand that I can buy one?

    Heres contact details for Phillips Oral Health Care in Thailand

    https://www.philipsoralhealthcare.co...?cnty=Thailand

    I usually use Lazada.co.th for a lot of things but they dont appear to have it. Maybe then might be amazon or ebay etc... ?!?

    Ok never used them but this one ok (not sure if right model) ?

    Philips Sonicare Flexcare RS930 Toothbrush

    Not sure if they are actually in Thailand although showing a Thai contact number (could just be VOIP no. tho) ?!?

    Had a little look at them and looks like they are a Singapore company and dont seem to have a great web presence for an online store like that so might be worth seeing if anyone has used them first ?!?

    Sorry to edit this again ! - they also seem to be running google ads on the site which seems a bit dubious for a bona fide shop ??!

    This may be a silly question, but can you buy one from the US or somewhere else and get it shipped over?

    Costs about 100 bucks to have it mailed from the US.

    I also use them. I once asked a deployed dentist with his own private practice back stateside about them... he said it was easily the best personal dental invention since floss... it outclasses everything, including other mechanical brushes.

    I feel like something's wrong with my life when I cant use mine. haha...

    Just get someone here to send one to ya... surely it cant be that much.

    It used to be much easier to get things from the states when PI was still around because there were many Americans coming and going, and they were.always asking if they could bring me anything, but that number has dramatically decreased. I did get hold of one company in US and they want $127 for just the shipping.

    I am sure you can ship it for much less.. I ship US stuff all the time and a box that size I would expect to be in the 45 - 65 ish range for USPS air parcel (mark as 20 USD and probably avoid customs).

    I am curious tho.. why that brand / model.. Whats different about it than normal electrics..

    I have used one electric toothbrush one time.. Didnt really appeal.. Now I am wondering if I havent had the best.

    ^^OHHHH, it is the best. Just believe how great your teeth and gums feel after. A bit expensive, but no cost should be spared to take care of your teeth.
    That is why I'm freaking out.....my mouth just doesn't feel the same, sort of not clean.

    OK but why ?? Its just another spinning head type electric brush ??

    If its that much of a difference may be I need to try one again.. I go through toothbrushes really quick, also they are all very soft in thailand, sometimes hard to even find medium let alone hard bristle ones.

    Firstly, it doesn't spin, it moves up and down, like 30,000 times per minute. I don't know, your whole mouth just feels soooo much cleaner after use. I miss it big time.

    Anyway, read up on it, it really IS the best.
