EMMI-DENT ULTRASOUND TOOTHBRUSH - ULTRACLEAN WITH REVOLUTIONARY ULTRASOUND TECHNOLOGY

FAQs

What is the difference between electric, sonic toothbrushes and the Emmi-dent ultrasonic toothbrush?
Emmi-dental Professional and Emmi-dent 6 Professional are ultrasonic toothbrushes,  a tooth cleaning system that cleans using ultrasound. They function motionless, without any abrasion and without any mechanical pressure on the teeth and gums, with a maximum of 96 million oscillations per minute. The RDA value of the Emmi-dent toothpaste is ZERO.

Conversely, electric and sonic toothbrushes work mechanically. They rub small particles with abrasive materials contained in the toothpaste against the enamel. The abrasion is specified by an RDA (Relative Dentin Abrasivity) value; lower values are better. Conventional toothpastes have an RDA value of 70-130. These brushes operate with a mechanical vibration, rotation or swing of 20,000 to 30,000 vibrations per minute.

What is the difference between Emmi-dent products and your regular toothbrush?
Both Emmi-dent products, Emmi-dental Professional and Emmi-dent 6 Professional, look and feel like a conventional electric toothbrush. But this is the only similarity, as Emmi-dental Professional and Emmi-dent 6 Professional clean with ultrasound. Traditional toothbrushes such as manual brushes, electric brushes and sonic brushes work mechanically by brushing bristles against the enamel (we call this macro-cleaning). Emmi-dental Professional and Emmi-dent 6 Professional clean without any brushing and purely with ultrasound (we call this micro-cleaning), because the ultrasound and the nano-bubbles of the Emmi-dent ultrasound toothpaste reach areas and clean where no bristles can ever reach.


What are the advantages of the micro cleaning versus the regular cleaning (macro cleaning) with a toothbrush?
Emmi-dent's micro cleaning system cleans the whole mouth, the teeth, the gums and the tongue in contrast to the macro cleaning (using either manual brushes or electric brushes). It is a very gentle way to clean, because there is no need for mechanical movements. The gingiva is not irritated, and in particular people with sensitive gums will appreciate this. The cleaning effect is considerably better than macro-cleaning.

The Emmi-dent ultrasonic toothbrush also kills bacteria, promotes blood circulation in the gingiva and releases the body's own energy, promoting the healing process. Ultrasound is also very effective against bleeding gums, bad breath and prevents periodontitis, aphthous ulcers and other dental diseases.

Why do Emmi-dental Professional and Emmi-dent 6 Professional clean better?
Manual, electric and sonic toothbrushes clean only where the bristles can reach. With all three methods, the user has to apply abrasive toothpastes. In contrast, Emmi-dent's ultrasound toothbrush cleans everywhere using a non-abrasive ultrasound toothpaste. Ultrasound cleans in places where even dental floss cannot reach. Ultrasound cleans much more thoroughly than traditional toothbrushes, in addition, it cleans even deep inside fissures and gum pockets.

How is it possible to remove debris and bacteria with ultrasound?
A transducer that is located inside the brush head, right above the bristles, converts electric pulses into ultrasound. The ultrasound impulses are then transmitted via each bristle of the brush head and the toothpaste directly onto the tooth surface and the gums, where the toothpaste is converted into nano bubbles. These microscopic bubbles implode and penetrate the smallest gaps and remove plaque, impurities such as food residues, tartar, bacteria, etc.

Why and how do Emmi-dental Professional and Emmi-dent 6 Professional specifically help implant patients?
There are two major protocols involved when dental implants are chosen as the perfect solution to restore dental function and aesthetics.

1. Post Surgery healing process usually takes about three months
2. Fabrication of the temporary implant bridge / single tooth and final porcelain implant of bridge / single tooth

In the first stage, the surgery causes a lot of trauma which results in swellings in the gum tissues around the dental implant. The titanium implant is screwed into the bone and being metal, the gums don't heal back onto it like they would on a natural tooth. However, a deep pocket is formed around the implant, which has to be kept very clean during the healing process, otherwise an infection can occur and the implant can be rejected by the body.

The brushing action of a conventional toothbrush will only irritate these already inflamed, sensitive areas, causing more prolonged bleeding, as the bristles penetrate and rub over the gums around the implants. This can cause infection and slows the healing process.

In the second stage, there are many hard to reach places around an implant, bridge or tooth. Long term oral hygiene is extremely important to maintain healthy gums around the implants and restorations. Ultrasound waves are an ideal medium to achieve this standard of oral hygiene as the millions of microscopic nano bubbles, produced by the specially formulated toothpaste, remove the plaque build up at a micro level and penetrate the smallest pockets around the implants.

This is why, tooth cleaning systems that work using pure ultrasound, like Emmi-dental Professional or Emmi-dent 6 Professional, are the best solutions for maintaining high standards of oral hygiene in people with dental implants.

Why should you use the Emmi-dent ultrasound toothpaste?
The Emmi-dent ultrasound toothpaste has been specifically developed and formulated to create millions and millions of nano-bubbles, many more than in any other toothpaste. Regular toothpastes work too, but the cleansing effects are drastically reduced, because there are larger and fewer bubbles, which are not as effective in removing plaque and bacteria. Regular toothpastes also contain abrasive elements, which damage the enamel.

Can Emmi-dental Professional and Emmi-dent 6 Professional be used for inlays, crowns and bridges?
Yes, Emmi-dental Professional and Emmi-dent 6 Professional work perfectly with fillings, inlays, crowns and bridges of any kind. There are no negative effects when using ultrasound.

Is ultrasound dangerous?
No, all ultrasound products developed by EMAG AG are absolutely safe. Ultrasound has been used in medicine for various purposes for decades. It is harmless. The ultrasound in Emmi-dent uses only 0.2 watts. Medical research has proven that ultrasound up to 50 watts is not harmful to the human body. Teeth cleaning and oral hygiene with ultrasound can be used by anyone, whether young or old, or a person with a pace maker or using other medical technological aids.

For how long can I clean my teeth with Emmi-dental Professional or Emmi-dent 6 Professional  and is prolonged use of Emmi-dent dangerous?
Using Emmi-dent products is absolutely safe and can be used any number of times a day and for as long as you want.

How long is a typical tooth cleaning session, using Emmi-dental Professional or Emmi-dent 6 Professional?
Typically the Emmi-dent brush head covers three teeth at a time. To clean these teeth, hold the brush head on the teeth for approximately five to ten seconds. If the teeth are really dirty (discoloured by stains, coffee, red wine, food or nicotine), just clean for a bit longer.

Does Emmi-dental Professional and Emmi-dent 6 Professional whiten my teeth?
By removing stains, caused by coffee, red wine, nicotine and food, Emmi-dental Professional and Emmi-dent 6 Professional ultrasonic toothbrushes in combination with the Emmi-dent ultrasound toothpaste helps to restore teeth to their natural white. Emmi-dent ultrasound toothpaste contains no bleach or abrasive particles which can damage the enamel.
