Bristle stiffness

I used a Sonicare toothbrush for several years but at some point, I put it away and started using a manual brush. I just purchased another Sonicare and have been looking at replacement heads. ALL of the heads I have seen online and in the store are marked MEDIUM (aside from the sensitive ones). I have always used a soft bristled toothbrush because most, if not all dentists recommend doing so. I want to get the most out of my Sonicare but dont want to cause damage to my gums or enamel by using a medium bristle brush. Oral b doesn't seem to rank as high but they offer more soft bristle options, and their heads are only a fraction of the cost.

Is using one of Sonicare's premier heads (only available in medium) long term, potentially causing harm?
