    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.

    "it’s a ‘no brushing’ toothbrush.”

    Kinda reminds me of the Sonicare toothbrush I use or 'sonic' toothbrush in that one regard. You dont actually 'brush', you just move it over your teeth.
