Ultreo has launched what it claims to be the first major technological innovation in electric toothbrushing since the release Sonicare 15 years ago. Using a combination of “waveguide technology and sonic bristle action” the Ultreo can remove hard-to-reach plaque that bristles alone tend to miss.
The Ultreo creates bubbles by channeling roughly 4 million cycles of ultrasound energy with the waveguide tech. The bubbles purportedly expand and contract to remove baddies from between yo’ teef.
According to Ultreo, clinical trials have shown that that the toothbrush can remove up to 95% of plaque from hard-to-reach areas in the first minute of brushing. It also reports that the brush helps to whiten teeth and improve gum health in just a month. Ultreo claims that people who have used its toothbrush have reported a longer lasting feeling of clean than they had felt with brushing alternatives.
Ultreo is available now for $149.99. Good luck finding brush heads for it in a stores though, I have a hard enough time finding them for my Sonicare.
