A new power toothbrush from Ultreo combines ultrasound waveguide technology with precisely tuned sonic bristle action for deep, gentle, long-lasting clean.
Ultreo's technology uses ultrasound energy to transform normally inactive bubbles into pulsating bubbles that can remove plaque bacteria. Ultreo can remove up to 95 percent of plaque from hard-to-reach areas in the first minute of brushing.
"The combined effect of ultrasound waveguide technology and precisely tuned sonic bristle action takes power brushing to new heights," said Ultreo principal scientist Dr. Christopher McInnes.
Ultreo removes stains for naturally whiter teeth in two weeks and reduces gingivitis in one month. It is safe for everyday use on gums, natural tooth surfaces and dental work.
Many of the team behind Ultreo were instrumental in the success of the Sonicare toothbrush including Ultreo CEO Jack Gallagher, former president of the company that developed the Sonicare toothbrush. The idea and proof of concept behind Ultreo originated at the University of Washington in a collaboration between the Applied Physics Laboratory and the Departments of Neurological Surgery and Pediatric Dentistry.
Ultreo offers a user-friendly design and a sleek look. Product features include: sonic bristles with power tip, ultrasound waveguide, ultra-slim neck, snap-on brush head, auto shut-off timer, brushing interval signal, brush head replacement indicator, battery charge status indicator and ultra-compact charger base.
