Terri,

We're not saying the modes aren't different (we're 100% sure they do shake and vibrate differently).
We're saying that the differences aren't important or superior to just Clean mode.

The two papers mentioned above are two in-house Sonicare studies.
Each one found that the model of brush it evaluated (Flexcare with one, HealthyWhite with the other) improved the color of teeth "2 shades." (Gave the exact same outcome.)

At that time (2007), the HealthyWhite model featured the specialized whitening mode "Clean and White" but the Flexcare did not.

That means the Clean mode, per Sonicare's own research, whitens just as well as the whitening specialty mode.

Clean mode is the most efficient, most effective mode a Sonicare brush offers. If you want the full effects and maximum benefits of a Sonicare, that is the mode you should be using.
