The emmi-dent ultrasonic toothbrush for maximum effect when cleaning teeth
The ultrasonic toothbrush from emmi®-dent impresses with its outstanding efficiency, which surpasses both classic manual toothbrushes and electric toothbrushes many times over. The innovative micro-cleaning process with pure ultrasound generates up to 96 million ultrasonic air vibrations per minute - brushing teeth is hardly possible in a more thorough and, above all, easier way. Find out more about how an ultrasonic toothbrush works and what it can do for your dental health.
Ultrasonic toothbrushes - good vibrations for perfectly clean teeth
The emmi®-dent ultrasonic toothbrush offers an effect that you cannot achieve with any other method. Previous toothbrushing techniques work on the basis of so-called macro-cleaning, which achieves up to 30,000 vibrations per minute with mechanical movements. With the almost contact-free ultrasonic technology, this value can be increased threefold. This means that even hard-to-reach places can be cleaned precisely. The ultrasonic waves reach even hard-to-reach places effortlessly and thus ensure a comprehensive.
Good to know: Professional dental cleaning by a dentist is not covered by statutory health insurance. Some insurance companies do subsidise them, but usually not more frequently than once a year. With an ultrasonic toothbrush, you can enjoy the wonderfully clean feeling of professionally cleaned and optimally cared for teeth every day.
How does an ultrasonic toothbrush work?
Toothbrushes that use the classic macro-cleaning method produce mechanical abrasion that can result in damage to tooth enamel if not handled properly. Electric ultrasonic toothbrushes achieve their cleaning effect with a completely new type of technology. They draw their energy from rechargeable batteries located in the handpiece. There, electrical energy is converted into vibrations that are completely harmless to health and cannot be heard or felt. They are transferred both via the brush attachment into a special ultrasonic toothpaste.
The ultrasound, in combination with the saliva, creates millions of tiny microbubbles which, due to their small size, can also penetrate into hard-to-reach spaces. There they implode and literally erase all impurities such as tartar, bacteria, plaque and food residues - and they do so almost without touching and without any pressure. The ultrasonic vibrations remove the dirt and clean the teeth in a particularly gentle way- perfect also for people with sensitive tooth necks or sensitive gums.
Another plus point: with regular use, the ultrasound technology has a whitening effect. Due to the high degree of effectiveness, deposits and unsightly discolourations are gradually and gently removed - and completely without bleaching or aggressive toothpastes that attack the enamel.
The efficient effect of the ultrasonic toothbrush - confirmed by dentists
Dentists have been using ultrasound technology for professional tooth cleaning for many years. The so-called "hard" ultrasound with a relatively low frequency and high power is used. A metal tip serves as the transmission medium. The "soft" micro-technology of the ultrasonic toothbrush, on the other hand, achieves its effect with a very high frequency and a comparatively low power. Now, for the first time, this technology is also available for daily dental care at home.
Dr. Dr. Roland Streckbein - head of the Institute for Dental Implantology (IZI) in Limburg an der Lahn - also confirms that ultrasonic toothbrushing is the state of the art for thorough dental cleaning. Especially for people who have opted for high-quality implants, this technology is a real milestone when it comes to caring for the alloplastic ready-made parts so that they last a lifetime.
Effective prophylaxis for everyone and everywhere - with the ultrasonic toothbrush
Despite the steadily increasing number of dental practices in Germany, the number of periodontitis cases has increased disproportionately according to the Fourth German Oral Health Study. About two thirds of all adults suffer from periodontal disease caused by bacteria. This puts it ahead of caries in frequency and is considered the main cause of tooth loss in adulthood.
In view of such alarming figures, it is particularly important to carry out daily prophylaxis against periodontitis and other dental diseases. Only with comprehensive oral hygiene can their development be effectively prevented. An ultrasonic toothbrush with effective cleaning action supports you in cleaning not only the teeth, but also the interdental spaces and the gum pockets in a pleasantly simple way - because health begins in the mouth.
The different types of tooth cleaning in the test
A comparative test of different electric models by Stiftung Warentest showed that variants with rotating round heads are not superior to sonic-active brushes. All conventional models, such as manual or electric toothbrushes, have in common that they mechanically "scrub" the teeth with a more or less high pressure. In doing so, they rub over the tooth surfaces, which can cause damage to the enamel or gums if not used correctly.
Since emmi®-dent toothbrushes equipped with ultrasonic technology work almost contactless, such a scenario is not possible here. Yet modern ultrasonic toothbrushes are highly effective and clean teeth and interdental spaces as well as fissures and gum pockets sustainably. In this way, you can achieve maximum oral hygiene without much effort. Convince yourself of the many advantages of an ultrasonic toothbrush and show off a radiant white smile!
