Dental Hygiene – Introducing the Emmi-pet Ultrasound Toothbrush

Published / by barknbubbles / 4 Comments on Dental Hygiene – Introducing the Emmi-pet Ultrasound Toothbrush

At Bark ‘n’ Bubbles along with the traditional grooming, clipping and bathing we offer teeth cleaning.

Good dental hygiene not only prevents bad breath but also makes a huge difference to a dogs health in general. The bacteria from plaque and tartar buildup in your dog’s mouth and can spread to the bloodstream and to other organs such as heart, liver and kidneys.

Tartar also builds up along the gum line pushing the gums back, this exposes the roots making them sensitive, causing pain, discomfort and instability.

So what is the answer?

Preventing the need for veterinary procedures under anaesthetic (like descaling  and extraction) by using ultrasound dental cleaning while the teeth are still healthy and not causing pain.

The Emmi-pet Ultrasonic toothbrush is not abrasive and has been made more acceptable to pets by having no sound or vibration. The ultrasound encourages healing as well as cleaning because it penetrates the gums by up to 12 mm. There is no physical motion required the bristles are just rested on the teeth and gum and the imperceptible  high frequency waves cause the bacteria that make up the plaque to be broken. The Ultrasonic Piezo-Chip is contained in the detachable head of the toothbrush and generates up to 96 million ultrasonic waves per minute.

Emmi-pet have also formulated a toothpaste for use with the ultrasound. ‘Micro bubbles’ are generated and react with the ultrasonic waves and implode. This eliminates food particles, plaque and bacteria from the mouth.

A one-off treatment will have little benefit, it is best done regularly at monthly intervals for example.
