Travel and vacation tips: How to get the most out of your ultrasonic toothbrush and care for it when you're on the road

When adventure calls and you're traveling, you naturally want to ensure optimal dental care at all times, even when you're on the road. Our emmi®-dent ultrasonic toothbrush is an excellent choice that can give your smile that extra sparkle! In today's blog post, we'll tell you how to get the most out of your ultrasonic toothbrush and take the best possible care of it while you're traveling and exploring the world.


The advantages of an ultrasonic toothbrush when traveling

Ultrasonic toothbrushes offer several advantages that make them an ideal companion for your vacation. They clean your teeth more thoroughly and gently than conventional manual toothbrushes. The ultrasound loosens plaque, reducing harmful bacteria growth and ensuring a bright smile in all your vacation photos.


The right transport solution: protection and hygiene

First of all, you should get a suitable protective cover or travel case. This will protect your toothbrush from

  • Damage,
  • pollution and
  • germs.

Make sure that the case has enough space for the brush and the attachment, but is not too large so that it can be easily stored in your toilet bag. You should clean the case regularly to ensure hygienic storage.


7 tips for optimal use and care on the road

  1. Charge your toothbrush before you leave: Make sure your ultrasonic toothbrush is fully charged before you leave on your trip. This will save space in your luggage by leaving the charger at home.

  2. Take spare attachments: Pack at least one spare attachment in case your current attachment needs to be replaced during your trip. This will also prolong the life of your brush and ensure optimal cleaning results.

  3. Clean the brush regularly: After each use, the brush should be thoroughly cleaned under running water. Then shake it out well and let it air dry before putting it in its case.

  4. Brush head care: The bristles of the brush head may become worn after some time. Be sure to replace the attachment at least every three months to ensure effective cleaning.

  5. Pay attention to the correct brushing technique: Even when traveling, you should follow the recommended brushing technique for ultrasonic toothbrushes. Place the brush at a 45-degree angle to the gums and move it slowly from tooth to tooth. Don't press too hard, as the ultrasound will do the work for you.

  6. Don't forget the travel adapter: If you do need to take the charger with you, remember that some countries have different outlet and voltage standards. Bring a travel adapter with you so that you can charge your ultrasonic toothbrush abroad without any problems.

  7. Emergency alternative: If, despite all your preparations, you encounter problems with your ultrasonic toothbrush, such as a defect or a flat battery, a conventional manual toothbrush such as our sustainable bamboo toothbrush can serve as an emergency solution. To be on the safe side, pack a manual toothbrush in your luggage.


Overall, it is important to be well prepared for the trip and possible problems. With these valuable tips and advice, you can relax and enjoy your vacation while always ensuring optimal oral hygiene. This way, you can also use and care for your ultrasonic toothbrush optimally on the road and enjoy your vacation with a radiant smile!
