5 Best Ultrasonic Toothbrushes

The tooth­brush is the main tool for remov­ing soft deposits from the sur­face of the tooth and gums, while ultra­son­ic tooth­brush­es are con­sid­ered the most effec­tive. Togeth­er with the experts, we com­piled a list of the best mod­els and dis­cussed how they dif­fer from elec­tric and mechan­i­cal brush­es
5 Best Ultrasonic Toothbrushes
5 best ultra­son­ic tooth­brush­es.

Ultra­son­ic tooth­brush­es, when used cor­rect­ly, are supe­ri­or to con­ven­tion­al (or as they are also called — man­u­al), son­ic and oth­er elec­tric mod­els in terms of hygiene qual­i­ty.one. Ultra­sound of a cer­tain fre­quen­cy and pow­er per­fect­ly cleans the sur­face of the teeth with­out dam­ag­ing the gums and enam­el. It gen­tly removes plaque, has an antibac­te­r­i­al and restora­tive effect on the oral cav­i­ty, and pre­vents inflam­ma­tion of the gums.

– Clean­ing teeth with an ultra­son­ic brush is due to the effect of micro­cav­i­ta­tion. This effect forms ultra­sound in a liq­uid medi­um. Ultra­son­ic waves, in turn, arise due to the piezo ele­ment, which is built into the brush head or hous­ing. The clos­er such a piezo ele­ment is to the bris­tles, the more effi­cient the ultra­son­ic tooth­brush works. In sim­ple words, a kind of ther­a­peu­tic vibra­tion occurs, which, in addi­tion to brush­ing your teeth, has a num­ber of use­ful actions. There are no con­traindi­ca­tions for using an ultra­son­ic brush, since ultra­sound does not cause any harm to the body. As for indi­ca­tions, it can be used on a dai­ly basis, start­ing from 3 years, says expert in the field of den­tistry Mikhail Azatyan.

The ultra­son­ic tooth­brush is rec­om­mend­ed for both peo­ple with a healthy oral cav­i­ty, and patients with braces, den­tal implants, den­tal crowns, bridges, inlays, and espe­cial­ly those who have peri­odon­ti­tis2. Ultra­sound in tooth­brush­es is absolute­ly safe and can only have a pos­i­tive effect.

 

Top 5 ultrasonic toothbrushes for adults

Editor’s Choice

1. Emmi-dent 6 Professional Platinum

Ultrasonic toothbrush Emmi-dent 6 Platinum
Ultra­son­ic tooth­brush Emmi-dent 6 Plat­inum.

The Ger­man patent­ed ultra­son­ic tooth­brush Emmi-dent 6 Pro­fes­sion­al Plat­inum opens our rat­ing. It allows you to brush your teeth with­out mechan­i­cal fric­tion due to soft ultra­sound — the bris­tles dur­ing oper­a­tion do not move with the help of an elec­tric motor, as with elec­tric or son­ic tooth­brush­es. This effect is achieved thanks to an ultra­son­ic chip built into the replace­able noz­zle itself. The ultra­sound in this brush oper­ates in a ther­a­peu­tic range that is safe for humans — with a fre­quen­cy of 1.6 MHz and a pow­er of only 0.2 watts. The green indi­ca­tor indi­cates the cor­rect oper­a­tion of the device and ultra­sound.

Under the influ­ence of ultra­son­ic waves, mil­lions of microbub­bles are formed in the tooth­paste, which pen­e­trate into the small­est cracks in the enam­el, inter­den­tal space and oth­er hard-to-reach places. Micro­scop­ic bub­bles remove plaque and dark spots on the enam­el, destroy bac­te­ria. Ultra­sound has an antibac­te­r­i­al effect, accel­er­ates tis­sue heal­ing, helps reduce gum bleed­ing, which is espe­cial­ly impor­tant for peo­ple with weak gums, as well as patients with stom­ati­tis and peri­odon­ti­tis.

Emmi-dent 6 Pro­fes­sion­al Plat­inum is avail­able in an ergonom­ic sealed case made of alu­minum and durable ABS plas­tic and comes with a replace­able noz­zle. The ser­vice life of the noz­zle is approx­i­mate­ly 3 months. Dur­ing this time, the chip built into the noz­zle wears out, respec­tive­ly, when you replace the noz­zle, your tooth­brush works with a new chip. The set also includes a pro­pri­etary non-abra­sive tooth­paste. The mod­el is equipped with a timer and a lithi­um-ion bat­tery that can work up to 3 weeks with­out recharg­ing. Comes with a styl­ish charg­er.

Elec­tric tooth­brush Don­feel HSD-015.

This elec­tric tooth­brush has 5 brush­ing modes: nor­mal, whiten­ing, mas­sage, pol­ish­ing mode and soft mode. The prin­ci­ple of oper­a­tion of the brush is rota­tion­al-pulse. Accord­ing to the instruc­tions, the pres­ence of mechan­i­cal ultra­son­ic vibra­tions should be con­sid­ered as an addi­tion­al func­tion, and the main clean­ing occurs due to the reversible motor, that is, the tooth­brush cleans with the help of direct move­ments of the bris­tles. With­out charg­ing, the device can work up to 42 days.

The kit includes 3 inter­change­able noz­zles of medi­um hard­ness, as well as a charg­ing sta­tion with an ultra­vi­o­let dis­in­fec­tor, which, accord­ing to the man­u­fac­tur­er, can clean all noz­zles and the device itself from path­o­gen­ic bac­te­ria and fun­gi in 7 min­utes. Also, the mod­el is equipped with a timer that every 30 sec­onds sig­nals that you need to move to a new brush­ing area.

Asahi Iri­ca AU300D elec­tric tooth­brush.

This mod­el of ultra­son­ic brush has a body with pro­tec­tion against direct mois­ture, LED mode indi­ca­tor, timer and two modes of oper­a­tion: “ultra­sound” and “vibra­tion mode”. Accord­ing to the instruc­tions, it is nec­es­sary to brush your teeth mechan­i­cal­ly with return move­ments, and the ultra­sound mode of this mod­el is need­ed to mas­sage the gums. The device charges for 8 hours, the charge is enough for 10 days (when used for 3 min­utes 2 times a day). The set includes a soft noz­zle with point­ed bris­tles, a stan­dard and a mas­sage noz­zle for high enam­el sen­si­tiv­i­ty and inflam­ma­tion of the gums, as well as induc­tion charg­ing.

Smart brush pro­gram­ming allows you to devote the nec­es­sary time to each zone. Every 45 sec­onds, the device sig­nals that you need to move to anoth­er zone. If not used, the device will turn itself off after 3 min­utes.

5. Donfeel HSD-005

Ultrasonic Toothbrush Donfeel HSD-005
Ultra­son­ic tooth­brush Don­feel HSD-005.

Clos­es our rat­ing is a sim­ple bud­get elec­tric ultra­son­ic tooth­brush. This tooth­brush should be con­sid­ered pri­mar­i­ly as an elec­tric tooth­brush, since clean­ing takes place with the help of vibra­tion of the noz­zle caused by an elec­tric motor. Accord­ing to the man­u­fac­tur­er, the pres­ence of ultra­son­ic vibra­tions is an addi­tion­al func­tion and does not sig­nif­i­cant­ly affect the main clean­ing. The fre­quen­cy of ultra­son­ic vibra­tions in this mod­el is at the lev­el of approx­i­mate­ly 100 kHz (0.1 MHz), while the lev­el of the ther­a­peu­tic “use­ful” fre­quen­cy is at the lev­el of 1.6 MHz, there­fore, in this case, ultra­sound is more of an aux­il­iary char­ac­ter. This tooth­brush has 2 modes of oper­a­tion — nor­mal and inten­sive. The set includes three inter­change­able noz­zles.

As the man­u­fac­tur­er notes, the Don­feel HSD-005 tooth­brush runs on 2 AA bat­ter­ies, and a 1‑year war­ran­ty is pro­vid­ed.

Main characteristics

Food from bat­ter­ies (type AA)
Num­ber of modes 2
Num­ber of inter­change­able noz­zles 3
Charg­ing type with­out charg­er
Max Speed up to 18000 vibra­tions per minute
Bat­tery life 28 days
Addi­tion­al func­tions clean­ing timer

Pros and cons

low cost, 2 oper­at­ing modes.
accord­ing to the instruc­tions, after 2 ses­sions, it takes 10 min­utes to cool the parts of the brush, you need to peri­od­i­cal­ly change the bat­ter­ies, noz­zles for clean­ing the tongue must be pur­chased sep­a­rate­ly.

 

How to choose an ultrasonic toothbrush

First of all, when choos­ing an ultra­son­ic brush, you need to pay atten­tion to its char­ac­ter­is­tics.

- Many peo­ple con­fuse ultra­son­ic brush­es with son­ic ones. More­over, some man­u­fac­tur­ers claim that the brush is ultra­son­ic, although it is not so in terms of char­ac­ter­is­tics. A full-fledged ultra­son­ic brush has a high fre­quen­cy of oscil­la­tion — more than 96 mil­lion per minute. The num­ber of oscil­la­tions of the son­ic brush is no more than 42 thou­sand per minute.

Ide­al­ly, the piezo ele­ment of an ultra­son­ic tooth­brush (the chip that trans­mits vibra­tions by gen­er­at­ing ultra­son­ic waves) is in the replace­able brush head, and not in the han­dle or oth­er places. It is impor­tant that there is no addi­tion­al dis­tance between the vibra­tion source and the bris­tles. Oth­er­wise, only 3–5% of the waves will reach the sur­face of the teeth. Choose bris­tles of medi­um hard­ness and with a straight cut so that when brush­ing your teeth, they are locat­ed at an angle of 90 degrees in rela­tion to the gums and teeth, notes can­di­date of med­ical sci­ences, den­tist-sur­geon Ele­na Chuyano­va.

It should also be tak­en into account that for prop­er clean­ing with an ultra­son­ic tooth­brush, a non-abra­sive tooth­paste is required. It will allow you to avoid abra­sion of enam­el and injury to your teeth with an abra­sive, but most impor­tant­ly, it will increase the effec­tive­ness of clean­ing with soft ultra­sound.

Can­di­date of Med­ical Sci­ences, Den­tist-Sur­geon-Implan­tol­o­gist Leonid Minkin adds that one of the main pos­i­tive effects of an ultra­son­ic tooth­brush is that ultra­son­ic waves pen­e­trate the gums and stim­u­late micro­cir­cu­la­tion. Ultra­sound destroys microbes and bac­te­ria not only on teeth and gums, but also in peri­odon­tal pock­ets, in micro­c­racks in teeth, etc. To avoid the for­ma­tion of tar­tar, increase the life of den­tal implants, you need to brush your teeth twice a day with an ultra­son­ic tooth­brush.

After talk­ing with the engi­neers of some man­u­fac­tur­ers, we came to an inter­est­ing con­clu­sion. The fact is that some brush­es, due to their design, pro­vide a deep­er pen­e­tra­tion of the ultra­son­ic wave into the gum. At the same time, the bris­tles them­selves remain motion­less, that is, we brush our teeth with soft ultra­sound, prac­ti­cal­ly with­out mak­ing any move­ments.

Oth­er mod­els are a kind of com­bi­na­tion of an elec­tric tooth­brush for mechan­i­cal clean­ing of teeth and ultra­sound as an aux­il­iary func­tion for gum mas­sage, etc.

To select an ultra­son­ic brush, it is bet­ter to care­ful­ly study the char­ac­ter­is­tics in order to choose the most effec­tive and suit­able mod­el for you.

Reviews of doctors about ultrasonic toothbrushes

— I would rec­om­mend an ultra­son­ic tooth­brush to any­one with gum prob­lems. Espe­cial­ly dur­ing the peri­od of exac­er­ba­tion and remis­sion of chron­ic stom­ati­tis, the appear­ance of ulcers on the oral mucosa. The use of an ultra­son­ic brush pro­motes the heal­ing of peri­odon­tal tis­sues not only due to the absence of fre­quent move­ments in the oral cav­i­ty, but also due to a pro­nounced anti­sep­tic effect. Bac­te­ria always remain on a con­ven­tion­al elec­tric tooth­brush after clean­ing. Using an ultra­son­ic brush in the pres­ence of gum dis­ease is not only pos­si­ble, but nec­es­sary! — notes den­tist-ther­a­pist-ortho­don­tist, Ph.D. Igor Rybalchenko.

- A good ultra­son­ic brush should have the abil­i­ty to replace noz­zles with medi­um hard bris­tles, a bat­tery with a long ser­vice life and the pos­si­bil­i­ty of replac­ing it, a timer for a brush­ing cycle. An ultra­son­ic brush helps patients with braces, as it is dif­fi­cult to clean near the locks with a con­ven­tion­al brush. A brush with fixed bris­tles is very suit­able for peo­ple who brush their teeth too aggres­sive­ly, says ortho­don­tist-gnathol­o­gist, pedi­atric den­tist Diana Cher­tano­va.

 

Popular questions and answers

Pop­u­lar ques­tions about ultra­son­ic brush­es are answered by a den­tist-ortho­don­tist, Ph.D. Igor Rybalchenko, den­tal sur­geon-implan­tol­o­gist, Ph.D. Leonid Minkin, ortho­don­tist-gna­tol­o­gist, pedi­atric den­tist Diana Cher­tano­va and den­tist-ther­a­pist Anna Afanasye­va.

What is the difference between an ultrasonic toothbrush and an electric and mechanical toothbrush?

- Many stud­ies prove that the ultra­son­ic brush is more effec­tive than elec­tric, son­ic and man­u­al brush­es due to the action of ultra­sound. Ultra­sound neu­tral­izes bac­te­ria by cre­at­ing a cav­i­ta­tion effect that destroys the pro­tec­tive shell of bac­te­ria. As a result, ultra­son­ic vibra­tions elim­i­nate plaque with­out dam­ag­ing the tooth enam­el. An ultra­son­ic brush cleans those places where a con­ven­tion­al mechan­i­cal one will nev­er get, since it is micro-clean­ing that takes place.

When using a mechan­i­cal brush, the effec­tive­ness direct­ly depends on the cor­rect brush­ing of the teeth. When clean­ing with an elec­tric and son­ic brush, an elec­tric motor cre­ates vibra­tion of the bris­tles in a giv­en direc­tion. The advan­tage of such brush­es is ease of use, but there is a risk of dam­age to tooth enam­el and gums. Dur­ing clean­ing, bac­te­ria can enter the sub­gin­gi­val space, where they will mul­ti­ply and con­tin­ue their destruc­tive actions — this is very crit­i­cal for peo­ple with prob­lem gums and patients with peri­odon­ti­tis.

How to brush your teeth with an ultrasonic toothbrush?

- Depend­ing on the type of ultra­son­ic brush, the clean­ing process itself is dif­fer­ent. If you have a tooth­brush where teeth are cleaned using soft ultra­sound, then every­thing is sim­ple: moist­en the bris­tles and turn on the brush, apply a spe­cial con­duc­tive tooth­paste, even­ly dis­trib­ute the tooth­paste over the teeth in the mouth and hold still, slight­ly lean­ing the bris­tles on each areas of the teeth and mov­ing on a sig­nal. At the end of brush­ing, make the required amount of brush­ing with the bris­tles in order to remove food and oth­er par­ti­cles from the sur­face of the teeth.

It is also desir­able to hold the brush on the gum so that the ultra­sound acts on the peri­odon­tal pock­ets, cleans­ing the bac­te­r­i­al plaque and biofilm that form dur­ing the day on the gums.

Ultra­son­ic tooth­brush­es of this type are easy to dis­tin­guish — the piezo ele­ment (ultra­son­ic chip) in these devices is locat­ed in a replace­able noz­zle for the pos­si­bil­i­ty of gen­tle clean­ing with soft ultra­sound with­out an elec­tric motor.

There are mod­els where ultra­sound acts as an aux­il­iary func­tion. In such tooth­brush­es, the piezo ele­ment (ultra­son­ic chip) is locat­ed in the han­dle of the device. The prin­ci­ple of brush­ing teeth in com­bined mod­els (elec­tric motor + aux­il­iary func­tion of ultra­sound) is sim­i­lar to using a con­ven­tion­al mechan­i­cal or elec­tric tooth­brush. First you need to moist­en the brush and apply a pea-sized tooth­paste to the bris­tles, then select the mode, place the tooth­brush in your mouth at a 45-degree angle and turn on the brush. Do not apply strong pres­sure on the brush and strong­ly press the bris­tles to the teeth — this will neg­a­tive­ly affect the qual­i­ty of clean­ing.

Is there a difference between sonic and ultrasonic toothbrushes?

The son­ic brush is an inter­me­di­ate option between a con­ven­tion­al mechan­i­cal and ultra­son­ic. Its oscil­la­tion fre­quen­cy usu­al­ly reach­es 20 kHz, which pro­vides more effec­tive plaque removal com­pared to a con­ven­tion­al elec­tric or man­u­al brush. Its main dif­fer­ence from an ultra­son­ic tooth­brush is the need for phys­i­cal effort and the absence of antibac­te­r­i­al and oth­er ben­e­fi­cial effects that an ultra­son­ic tooth­brush has.

The ultra­son­ic brush is by far the most tech­no­log­i­cal­ly advanced and advanced solu­tion in oral hygiene. Soft ultra­sound is 100% safe, some mod­els can clean with lit­tle to no brush­ing motion. The ultra­son­ic brush per­fect­ly cleans plaque and restores the nat­ur­al col­or of the teeth, pre­vents the appear­ance of tar­tar, does not dam­age the enam­el and gums, has an antibac­te­r­i­al effect, helps with bleed­ing gums, is suit­able for sen­si­tive teeth, for peo­ple with den­tal implants, crowns, bridges, braces, etc. d.

Can people with fillings use an ultrasonic toothbrush?

- In pro­fes­sion­al den­tistry, it is gen­er­al­ly accept­ed that a prop­er­ly installed fill­ing will last 10 years or more, regard­less of which tooth­brush you brush your teeth with. Even if we are talk­ing about an elec­tric brush with a pow­er­ful elec­tric motor.

As for ultra­son­ic brush­es, they can only clean the sur­face of the fill­ing, as soft ultra­sound works with a ben­e­fi­cial effect. They are rec­om­mend­ed for use with enam­el hyper­sen­si­tiv­i­ty or with severe inflam­ma­tion of the gums, so as not to injure them once again. Such brush­es can and should be used with var­i­ous den­tal struc­tures, includ­ing patients with fill­ings, because care will only become bet­ter.

Can I brush my teeth with an ultrasonic toothbrush every day?

Yes, you can and should. As with any tooth­brush, you should brush your teeth at least twice a day — this is cor­rect in terms of main­tain­ing oral health. It is also rec­om­mend­ed to use a brush after each meal for the best oral hygiene.

Who should not use an ultrasonic toothbrush?

– Brush­ing your teeth with an ultra­son­ic tooth­brush, where clean­ing takes place motion­less­ly, and there is no elec­tric motor for the rota­tion and move­ment of the bris­tles, does not have any con­traindi­ca­tions.

Brush­ing teeth with a com­bined ultra­son­ic brush (elec­tric motor for move­ment / rota­tion of the bris­tles + ultra­sound) is con­traindi­cat­ed in the fol­low­ing cas­es:

• preg­nan­cy;
• the pres­ence of a pace­mak­er;
• mul­ti­ple caries;
• stage of exac­er­ba­tion of peri­odon­ti­tis;
• neo­plasms in the oral cav­i­ty.
