How Teeth Cleaning for Dogs Works at Doghouse

Using An Ultrasonic Toothbrush

ultrasonic teeth cleaning for dogs

Some dogs are more susceptible to plaque growth than others. Until recently the only solution to plaque build up has been a trip to the vets, with a general anaesthetic and descale, with a high possibility of extractions in the worst cases.


At Doghouse we use an Emmi pet toothbrush for our teeth cleaning. This ultrasonic toothbrush over the course of several appointments, gently dissolves the plaque on your dog's teeth.


The Emmi pet toothbrush is vibration-free and no actual brushing or scrubbing is necessary, making this a stress free experience for your dog as it is simple and non-invasive. You will notice that it improves your dog's whole oral health, from their breath and gums to the tartar build-up on their teeth.


How it works

The Emmi pet ultrasound waves are transmitted through the wet toothbrush bristles with the Emmi pet toothpaste, creating millions of micro-bubbles that penetrate deep below the gum line & into the smallest gaps between the teeth & gum pockets. Bacteria, food remains, plaque and bad breath (which is the leading sign of periodontal disease) are removed. It also increases blood flow to the gums to heal wounds and stop bleeding.


We do need to stress that the ultrasonic toothbrush is not a “magic wand”, it is a gentle and gradual method of removing tartar and bacteria from your dog's teeth and gums, and needs to be used for several sessions in order to thin the tartar and bacteria to make it safe enough to pick the tartar off the teeth.

We highly recommend a weekly appointment, over ten weeks. We tend to notice a reduction in tartar after the first three to four sessions, but if the tartar build-up is high, then this may take longer, as all dogs and their teeth are different.

Once the ten weeks have passed and hopefully your dogs teeth are much improved we would then recommend a monthly visit to keep on top of the bacteria and tartar build-up.
