Does anyone have a Emmi-dent 6 toothbrush, I'm thinking of buying one and they aren't cheap, there are several sonic toothbrushes but they all have a mechanical vibration or oscillation at high speed an ultrasound brush does not clean with abrasion they use ultrasound, the Emmi-dent 6 is the only one of this specific type made.
Fox news had an article about them awhile back.

This is the best review I have read, I have read a couple hours of reviews and I'm just about convinced, one bad review but they actually liked the product but were mad because it was out of stock and took too long to ship, that was right after fox news reviewed it and the manufacturer had their entire stock cleaned out.

This is supposed to be entirely different then any other, you set it against three teeth at a time and hold it their, know brushing no abrasion and the ultrasound cleans.

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,” Blumenschein 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.”

The toothbrush – modeled 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 said.

According to Blumenschein, the Emmi-Dent brush is superior to other run-of-the-mill toothbrushes, because it is much more thorough. He said that brushes with bristles are only scraping away bacteria, but some of the bacteria resides on the brush and aren’t completely gone.

“With the ultrasound, you have so much energy that is basically destroying the membranes of the bacteria,” Blumenschein, “and therefore they are completely destroyed and disappear…into thousands of small pieces.”

The brush’s technique has been confirmed by numerous European studies, and Blumenschein said the company has received nothing but positive feedback from dentists. Patients with other more extreme oral hygiene problems have also shown to benefit from using the brush, by reducing inflammation, bad breath and teeth stains.

Blumenschein maintains that no adverse side effects to using the Emmi-Dent brush have been found.

Ultrasound tooth brush??

You gave a toothbrush an ultrasound or perhaps one of your goats had an ultrasound and is giving birth to a toothbrush. Congrats.

I do not own one.

The first I heard of it was the Fox story the end of May and I thought I would look into it when mine wore out, that time is here.
