I admit it. I’m horrible about brushing my dog’s teeth. I give them dental chews daily (and they have really healthy teeth!) but I know I need to get into a better routine of cleaning their teeth. The new Emmi-pet Ultrasound Toothbrush will get me started on that new routine!
How does the Emmi-pet Ultrasound Toothbrush work?
I had never heard of ultrasound technology in a toothbrush before Emmi-dent. The company actually makes a toothbrush for humans, but now they are offering one for pets – which I think is absolutely fantastic. Here’s how it works:
Emmi-pet generates ultrasound with a patented ultrasonic microchip that is embedded inside the brush head. This chip creates up to 84 million ultrasonic (air oscillations) impulses per minute and transmits them via the bristles and the special animal bio-compatible Nano-bubble toothpaste onto the teeth giving your pet a superior cleaning. The ultrasonic impulses are able to penetrate teeth and gums destroying bacteria and germs where bristles can’t reach. This is essential in reducing and protecting against periodontal (gum) disease.
What I liked about the Emmi-pet Ultrasound Toothbrush:
- The set up was super simple. Just plug the charging station into a wall outlet and put the toothbrush on it!
- It is lightweight, which makes it easier to brush teeth.
- There is no sound or vibration. When I turned it on (the light turns green) it didn’t do anything. It was awesome! This feature is amazing because extra sound or motion would startle a lot of dogs.
- There are two toothbrush heads, so you can use whichever one is best for your dog. I used the smallest one since my dogs are small.
- The toothpaste didn’t have a bad odor to it, and both my dogs licked it while I was introducing the toothbrush to them.
What I didn’t like about Emmi-pet Ultrasound Toothbrush:
- Honestly, there wasn’t much I didn’t like about the Emmi-pet Ultrasound Toothbrush. Even though the small toothbrush head was pretty tiny, it was still a little big for Wynston’s mouth.
It took both Matt and I to wrangle the dogs so we could attempt to brush their teeth. We did introduce the brush to them first by letting them sniff it…and lick it. Wynston was difficult because the toothbrush head was just a little too big. But again, his mouth is super tiny. This is why I couldn’t get any photos of us actually brushing their teeth – it was a 2 person job! (Make sure you don’t use your own human toothpaste when brushing your dog’s teeth!)
Emmi-dent offers a toothbrush for humans as well. The ultrasound technology is really fancy! I definitely suggest checking it out and reading how it works if you aren’t familiar.
Give your dog the gift of clean, healthy teeth with the Emmi-pet Ultrasound Toothbrush!
