New ultrasound toothbrush ‘may revolutionize oral hygiene’

The toothbrush uses device with ultrasonic power to break down tartar

A US based company has developed a new technology that will change the way we brush our teeth.

More than 75 percent of American adults have some form of gum disease – but the condition is completely preventable.

Peer Blumenschein,CEO of Emmi-Tech,Inc.,recently spoke with Fox News Health about a new technology that is changing the way we brush our teeth – the Emmi-Dent Ultrasonic Toothbrush.

“It’s a new device in the United States,” Fox News quoted Peer Blumenschein,CEO of Emmi-Tech,Inc.,said.

“And it’s the first toothbrush which runs 100 percent on ultrasound,so the ultrasound cleans. You do not have to brush – so it’s a ‘no brushing’ toothbrush,” he said.

The toothbrush,modelled after the average dental teeth cleaning,uses devices with ultrasonic power to break down tartar. But unlike conventional cleanings,the Emmi-Dent brush utilizes microwaves with significantly less power.

“It’s just enough to kill the bacteria in your mouth – in your gums,on the teeth – so that you don’t destroy the teeth or the enamel and basically don’t harm your oral system,” Blumenschein added.
