Ultreo Ultrasound Toothbrush Giveaway


Nap Warden, who commented, “Wow…that is quite a toothbrush! I use the Oral B electric,” is the winner of the Ultreo giveaway!” Thanks to everyone who entered.

Last year wasn’t a banner dental care year for me, so I was intrigued when approached with the chance to review the new Ultreo ultrasound toothbrush, which takes dental care to a whole new level.

Ultreo is the first major innovative development in toothbrushes in more than a decade. It is the only power toothbrush to combine ultrasound waveguide technology with precisely tuned sonic bristle action. Developed at the University of Washington, it’s basically the bad ass of toothbrushes.

Ultreo features:

  • an auto shut off timer

  • a brushing interval signal that beeps every 3 seconds to help you clean each area of your mouth equally

  • a compact charger base and wall plug

  • a battery charge status indicator that tells the level of battery power (when fully charged you can use Ultreo for up to 28 brushings without additional charging)

  • the ability to remove up to 95% of plaque from hard-to-reach places in one minute. It is also clinically proven to be safe and gentle for everyday use on gums, natural tooth surfaces, and dental work

Ultreo retails for $169.99 and can be purchased from participating dental offices, Ultreo’s website, and online retailers such as Drugstore.com, Amazon.com, and The Sharper Image. Additional brush heads can be purchased so that more than one person can share the toothbrush base.

This is not a product I would normally go out and buy for myself, but the Ultreo is definitely an investment in dental care. My teeth felt considerably cleaner after brushing with the Ultreo, and I’d compare it to that “just professionally cleaned” type feeling you get after an appointment with your dental hygenist.

    right now, using CVS store brand toothbrushes for the whole family (they were on clearance) but in the past have used Oral-B & Colgate. Basically I buy/use whatever happens to be on sale at the time I need them.

  2. Debbie Dorsett says:

    I use oral-b, but also shop around, buying brushes that are on sale, that I also have a coupon for. I’m not very picky; I usually choose by color.

  3. Rachel says:

    I use what ever the dentist gives me, right now it is an OralB,so this would be absolutely wonderful to win.

  4. Katie says:

    I use the free toothbrush I get from the dentist. I also choose by color (purple or pink). I think we’ve got oral b right now. Thanks for the chance to win!

  5. Jami says:

    Oral-b. The ones you get when you go to the dentist for a check up. My teeth wouldn’t know what hit them if I had this! Thanks for the contest!

  6. Bridget says:

    I use Target brand soft toothbrushes as I have heard that med or hard can actually damage your enamel

  7. Kam A says:

    I use Colgate brand toothbrushes- the Ultreo toothbrush sounds SO nice! Thank you for the chance to win it!

  8. Amy says:

    Reach or Oral-B, but mine has to be compact and medium. I usually stand there a long time looking! This one sounds great!

  9. Kathleen says:

    I use the CVS brand or what I get from the dentist. I’d love to try an electric one though! They have a nice, comprehensive website.

  10. Misty V. says:

    I am currently using a Colgate toothbrush. My last trip to the Dentist could have gone better. The Ultreo would make me and my Dentist happy!

  11. Ellen says:

    Hubby and I are both currently using battery-powered Oral B toothbrushes. Even though they were only $5 and certainly not as high-tech as the one you’re offering up, my teeth do feel cleaning with the vibration.

  12. Kali says:

    I would chunk my REACH toothbrush for this baby in a heartbeat! Years of taking medication have taken a toll on my dental care, causing sensitive teeth and gums. It would be great to see if this Ultreo Ultasound Toothbrush would work for me :-)

    I’ve blogged about your contest and provided a link. Please hook me up with an extra entry. Thanks!

  13. Rhonda Martin says:

    The kids use a tooth brush that plays there favorite song. Bought them at Wal-Mart have no idea the brand. I am currently using a reach tooth brush however I use what ever I can find in a firm tooth brush. The soft (which are available most) and medium just don’t clean my teeth good enough for me. I have tried many brands but unless it was firm my teeth just looked dingy after a few weeks and don’t feel as clean as with a firm tooth brush. This looks like a real high tech tooth brush that should do the trick. Thank you for the opportunity to enter to win such a nice tooth brush.

  14. Emily says:

    I’ll blog it too.

    What do I use? Whatever the dentist gives me, followed by whatever’s on sale at the store when I need a replacement! Right now I’m using a Colgate toothbrush that I rather like.

  15. killlashandra says:

    Yes, I use a standard ole manual toothbrush colegate. I really like those 360 degree ones. But, a fancy one would sure be cool to use. I’ve always thought they just cost way too much.

  16. Molly says:

    This toothbrush looks amazing and I’ve never been all that impressed by the others (Sonicare, et al). But the timing part put me over the edge.

    I’m currently using Crest toothbrushes (soft, of course). It works, I suppose, but I drink a lot of coffee so I should upgrade. Plus, I have a poor dental plan so it might be nice to have this extra care.

    Thanks for the chance to win! You rock.

  17. Robin M. says:

    I just use whatever I buy on sale or whatever they give me at the dentist’s office. I would love to try this!!

  18. Vickie Couturier says:

    Right now we are using a colgate brand,but my teen daughter would love this one sooooo much better,thanks

  19. Linda Pinto says:

    I use an old fashioned manual toothbrush but I would benefit a lot from the Ultreo Ultrasound toothbrush. Please enter me in the giveaway.

  20. Megan A. says:

    I’m a stickler for changing our toothbrushes every 2-3 months, so I but whatever’s on sale. My favorite is Oral B. We can’t afford to be picky when each family member is going through 4-6/yr.

  21. Debbie says:

    I use the free Oral B that the dentist gives me. Oh, I would really love to try this one though. Thanks for the chance.

  22. Kimberly says:

    We are currently using colgate brushes,like so many others I usually get what is on sale, or if I have a coupon.It would be soooo nice to have that

  23. Eloise Carlson says:

    This looks like a great toothbrush with a lot of extras! I use a GUM manual toothbrush with tongue cleaner. Noting fancy, but it works good. Thanks for a great opportunity!

  24. Deanne S says:

    My mom swears by these! I buy whatever kind of toothbrush is on sale (currently I have a Colgate one). I also get some freebies at the dentist and graciously except those!

  25. johnny M says:

    wow , great contest ! Sure would love to win and switch out my no brand name ” Dollar Store ” one for this high speed baby :)

  26. Tamara Mitchell says:

    I use a little $7 crest spinbrush. Love it, even though it could do a lot better for the ole choppers or should I say young choppers.

  27. Babalu says:

    I can’t afford the Rolls Royce, but the toothbrush would be nice. Probably more useful. I use an Oral B and a manual toothbrush.

  28. Deb - Mom of 3 Girls says:

    I just started using a Recycline Preserve toothbrush, but before that, I used whatever kind I got from the dentist at my 6-month cleanings. Usually Oral-B, I think. I’d love to win this one! :)

  29. Christina says:

    I’ve been using my Soniccare for about a year now, and I love it to bits. This one is amazing though! Even if it cleans the same as my brush, the timers make it worth the extra money. I HAVE to get one of these. Think the manufacturers will give me one to review on my review blog as well? GRIN

  30. Christina says:

    My family uses whatever we can get on sale for the most part, but our preferred ones are the baby toothbrushes that come in extra-soft, as I have sensitive teeth, and the kids tend to brush too hard.

    I already blogged today, so I’m going to blog your contest tomorrow. :)

  31. Stephen Albert says:

    I use a manual Oral B toothbrush and after spending hours and days in the dental school chair I could use this new fangled brush to keep my teeth in good shape.

  32. Diane says:

    My teeth would be so happy to have a new fancy tooth brush to make them sparkle. :)
    Right now the poor things get scrubed clean with a Colgate tooth brush. Not that Colgate brush is bad, it’s done it’s job well, I just think my teeth would be so happy to have a brand spankin new Ultreo brush.
    :)
    Thanks

  33. Miss Amanda says:

    I use mostly Colgate, because of the look of the toothbrush.
    But I would give up any looks for this toothbrush! WOWIE! This is one nice toothbrush!

    Thanks for the chance to win this!

    Ha! I use some generic toothbrush that my dentist gave me at my six month checkup. My teeth wouldn’t know what to do with a toothbrush like this! :) m_huston(at)hotmail(dot)com

  35. Summer says:

  36. Gary says:

    Hi there! Wow look at this product! I can already feel the great feeling of holding it in my hand
    I have used all kinds of brushes, I guess I just get bored staying with a same one after a while. Currently” Colgate.
    Thanks for a chance to win this amazing product.

  37. Elizabeth M. says:

    I usually use Oral B manual toothbrushes but my dentist just told me to go to a battery powered toothbrush because it will prevent me from brushing too hard and I already have a lot of recession.

  38. Gina says:

    I use a sad old manual $1 Colgate brush. Blah. I need a pick me up kind up kind of toothbrush that will be kind to my gums.

  39. Cindi says:

  45. Joni says:

    I use whatever the dentists gives me or what is on sale. With 3 little kids, I don’t always get to my teeth right away in the morning. I could really use this! Thanks for the giveaway!

  46. Lachelle says:

    Whatever is on sale – be it Colgate or Crest or Oral-B. I have owned a Sonicare and I loved it! But it’s not in the current budget right now. Would love the chance to win!

  47. Darcie says:

    Hmmm, I’m not too picky. I use whatever it is the dentist gives me after my check up. :)

    I have always wanted to try an electric one though, to see what all the fuss is about.

  48. Shannon says:

    Hmmm. I’m not sure what brand I use. I think it’s an Oral-B. Whatever the dentist hands out!

  49. Jackie B. says:

    I use Colgate. That is the brand my dentist gives me with each checkup. Would love to win this one!

  50. Tiffany says:

    I once loved my sonicare toothbrush, but it lived a good life, now I’m back to on-sale manual toothbrushes. Currently, I am using a colgate toothbrush.

  51. Andrea says:

    I use Oral-B… also because my dentist gives them to me. However, I just found out I’m pregnant. We all know what kind of hacoc that can wreak on your teeth and gums so this toothbrush would find a great home with me!

  52. Rhonda says:

    The latest one I have gotten for our family is the Colgate 360. I liked that it had a soft rubber toung brush on the back side of the head. I have not tried any of the electric brushes yet, and I’m curious to how they compare.

  53. Diana Corlett says:

    I have a Colgate manual toothbrush at the moment. Would love to try one of these….

    An ugly old toothbrush that just doesn’t have any more life in it. (LOL) I definitely need a new one.

  57. Nicole Price says:

    Thanks for the opportunity to have one of these toothbrushes. We normal use Colgate brushes.

  63. Kristen Hendricks says:

    I usually use a Reach toothbrush or an Oral-B toothbrush to brush my teeth. However, I’ve been wanting to get the Rolls Royce of toothbrushes for years now and I really hope I win this great giveaway. Thanks.

  64. randy says:

    Never used a power toothbrush before, but my dentist is highly recommending it. After getting admonished for all the plaque in my mouth and the receding gums, i am thinking it might be time to get proactive. i know people getting gum transplants to keep their teeth covered and any fewer trips to the dental chair are greatly prefered. My entire body goes rigid from the moment i get seated until i get the all done declaration.

    Looking over the numerous models out there, and i can’t keep track at all. No two stores carry the same models, so the only way to price compare is on-line. The only feature i noticed that i could grasp onto was found in a review of the Ultreo. It was mentioned that it could be programmed for two users. None of the others advertised that valuable point. I am not about to buy two power brushes for my wife (even if she is a redhead) and i if the brush heads can be easily interchangeable, which they should be. So, the ultreo is looking promising, although i have not yet been able to locate a website for the Ultrea company.

  65. Your Dental Hygienist says:

    I am currently using an electric Rotadent toothbrush, it’s nice but… I just ordered Ultreo from http://www.drugstore.com for only $39.98 and can’t wait for it to arrive I tried it in the past and fell in love. Soon we’ll be together again :o)

  66. Alan J. Sherman, DDS says:

    is the Ultreo Co. still in business? I would like to buy more brushes. The phone number that i have, has been disconnected.

  67. Ronald Hurwitz says:

    Frontgate just got a large supply of the Ultreo tooth brushes and brush heads. They are charging $29.50 each for the tooth brush w/ brush head and you can purchase up to 4 additional brush heads at $22.50 each, plus 10% shipping. I am passing this along, so that those on ebay charging $50, $60, and up to $70 per brush head lose out. If you don’t want to lose your original $170 investment, go now to frontgate. I bought 8 tooth brushes and 4 additional brush heads for a total of 12 which should last about 3+ years. The only issue when those 12 brush heads are gone, then I will need to replace the tooth brush, but that’s 3+ years down the road. Good Luck
