An electric toothbrush can damage crowns

Ultrasonic toothbrush for fillings and implants

The emmi®-dent ultrasonic toothbrush effectively prevents dental diseases such as tooth decay, periodontitis and gingivitis thanks to its innovative cleaning process. But what if there are already dental problems that require treatment by the dentist? How does the ultrasonic toothbrush behave with fillings and implants? Even with a tooth filling and fixed dentures, brushing with a toothbrush that works with 100 percent ultrasound leads to excellent results. Read here why this is the case and what advantages an ultrasonic toothbrush has for implants and fillings.

Fillings and implants for dental health

Whether a carious or a broken tooth: Tooth fillings replace the natural protection of the teeth when the tooth is no longer able to do so. Dentists use a filling to repair tooth holes caused by tooth decay. However, the tooth filling also replaces a piece of the tooth that has broken off. Major damage to the tooth structure requires more extensive dental treatment. A crown or other fixed implants in the mouth may be necessary here.

Dentists in Germany fill more than 50 million holey teeth every year - from amalgam to plastic. In 2017 it was 50.5 million, as the 2018 yearbook of the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians (KZVB) shows. But choosing the right material and filling the tooth is not enough. Like implants, fillings require special attention in dental care after treatment. Daily use of the toothbrush is particularly important here.

Why brushing your teeth and using the right toothbrush for fillings and implants are so important

Teeth with fillings are particularly vulnerable. Their tooth structure has already suffered damage. Often from tooth decay that has eaten the hole in the tooth. There is therefore a risk that harmful bacteria will again colonize these areas in the oral cavity. The transition between the filling and the tooth substance is particularly at risk because the bacteria find good living conditions here. If they are not removed regularly with a toothbrush, plaque forms. Tartar, periodontitis and renewed tooth decay are the result.

If you keep the area around the treated tooth clean and sterile, you reduce the risk of further fillings. The same applies to dental implants. In the case of crowns, bridges and prostheses, there is a further challenge, the risk of damaging the sensitive material of the dental implants during dental care. Choosing the right toothbrush is more important than ever!

Everything about the use of the ultrasonic toothbrush for fillings

Of course, the ultrasonic toothbrush can be used with fillings for dental care. Thanks to the innovative cleaning process used by toothbrushes with ultrasound, the emmi®-dent ultrasonic toothbrush achieves optimal results even with fillings.

Hard-to-reach places in the oral cavity, to which the manual toothbrush, sonic toothbrush and other electric toothbrushes cannot even penetrate, the ultrasonic toothbrush effectively cleans of food residues, dental plaque and harmful bacteria.

This is how the ultrasonic toothbrush works with fillings

Ultrasonic toothbrushes clean the teeth without movement or with almost no contact. The toothbrushes dispense with the scrubbing that you are used to from manual toothbrushes and all other electric toothbrushes. Ultimately, the sonic toothbrush also relies on this mechanical cleaning. Ultrasonic toothbrushes are different: Their up to 96 million vibrations per minute allow the ultrasound to gently and gently clean your teeth, fillings and implants without harming the sensitive materials.

The ultrasound generated by the piezo chip of the emmi®-dent ultrasonic toothbrush creates numerous small bubbles. These are made to implode in the mouth and thus develop their cleaning power. Because they are tiny, they can even penetrate interdental spaces and other hard-to-reach places such as implants and clear them of any contamination.

How to brush your teeth with the ultrasonic toothbrush for fillings

The emmi®-dent ultrasonic toothbrush is not only convincing in terms of cleaning, but also in terms of handling - even with fillings. Simply hold the toothbrush to your teeth - the ultrasound will do the rest.

Are there any risks when brushing your teeth with an ultrasonic toothbrush with fillings?

If you brush your teeth with the emmi®-dent, the ultrasonic toothbrush does not pose any risk to the fillings. Despite their 96 million vibrations, the innovative toothbrushes do not contribute to fillings falling out. A good tooth filling sits absolutely securely in the tooth. If fillings come off when you brush your teeth with the ultrasonic toothbrush, this would have happened over time anyway and has nothing to do with the toothbrush.

The ultrasound with which the emmi®-dent ultrasonic toothbrush works is completely safe. Its spectrum lies outside of human perception. Therefore, when using ultrasonic toothbrushes, you will not see, hear or feel the ultrasound.

The use of the ultrasonic toothbrush for implants

What applies to brushing teeth with the emmi®-dent for fillings also applies to dental care with the ultrasonic toothbrush for implants. When it comes to oral hygiene, your crowns, bridges and prostheses benefit even more from gentle ultrasound cleaning. On the one hand, implants require particularly thorough dental care, because the areas under the dentures and the places where the crowns rest on the gums also have to be cleaned. On the other hand, most toothbrushes cannot do this. In addition, the toothbrush has to be particularly gentle for the longevity of the implants.

The ultrasonic toothbrush does not damage the material of the expensive implants. In contrast to other toothbrushes such as the manual toothbrush or the rotating electric toothbrush, whose high pressure when scrubbing can damage the materials of the implants. In addition, the tiny bubbles of the ultrasonic toothbrush easily get under the crown or bridge and remove food residues and bacteria from there. Cleaning bridges, implants and dentures - ultrasonic toothbrushes are extremely gentle and extremely thorough.

Ultrasonic toothbrush for implants and fillings - this is what you need to pay attention to

Whether filling or dentures: Correct handling is of course an elementary prerequisite for emmi®-dent to develop its cleaning effect. But brushing your teeth properly with ultrasound has to be learned first. For many users, the first tooth cleaning with the ultrasonic toothbrush is initially unfamiliar, because until now they have only known teeth cleaning in the form of mechanical cleaning. But the easy handling and the excellent results of the ultrasonic toothbrush - especially with implants and fillings - speak for themselves. As a result, the emmi®-dent not only effectively prevents dental diseases such as caries, periodontitis and gingivitis as well as bad breath, but also supports you in the follow-up treatment of existing dental problems. In this way, you are also well advised with the ultrasonic toothbrush for implants and fillings.
