The sophistication of dental care has reached even to the toothbrush you use. The traditional manual toothbrush has given way to electric toothbrushes. One among these is the ultrasound toothbrush which has given a greater sophistication to dental care and dramatically changed the way people use a toothbrush.
As the very name suggests, ultrasound toothbrush creates a unique ultrasound and it helps in getting rid of the plaque. This toothbrush normally operates at 1.6 Mhz frequency, which is computed to be equal to 192,000,000 movements per minute!

Oral health starts with teeth and it implies that the teeth must be kept clean and in hygienic condition. This further implies that you will have to use a good quality toothbrush and toothpaste. One of the main drawbacks of traditional toothbrushes is that it cannot reach every corner of the teeth. This situation would mean your teeth are not ‘completely clean’. This situation is effectively averted by the ultrasound toothbrush.
The mechanism of an electric toothbrush is quite simple; it operates at high speed as already said at about 192,000,000 movements per minute. This naturally creates effective brush strokes as compared to the traditional toothbrush. With further innovations, the utility of these electric toothbrushes has been further enhanced. For example, some of the latest models of electric toothbrushes have a cleansing mode and brush timer mode, which enhance the quality of brushing.
