Soladey was invented in Japan by Dr. Yoshinori Nakagawa. The name originates from the words ‘Solar’ and ‘Dental’. Dr Nakagawa knew that negative ions could be generated from titanium when this metal was exposed to light and water. As with other industrial applications such as water purification and air filtration, ionic power is not a recent invention. Soladey was first manufactured in the early 1980s and this light activated toothbrush is now used daily by millions of people in Japan primarily, but also now in many other countries.
HOW IT WORKS
When exposed to any light source (e.g. a fluorescent bathroom light, a plain light bulb or sunlight), the photo-sensitive titanium rod inside Soladey-Eco converts the light into negatively charged electrons (ions). The rod releases the ions, which blends with saliva to attract positive (hydrogen) ions from the acid in the dental plaque.
The acid is then neutralised and plaque is disintegrated – a scientific approach to cleaner and healthier teeth! Toothpaste is not required as water (saliva) is the active ingredient – oral hygiene becomes not only natural, but also economical!
Bacteria in plaque attack food, producing acid. This acid causes bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease. Normally, saliva neutralises this action. However when plaque builds up, it acts as a barrier, preventing the neutralising action of the saliva. According to clinical studies, the Soladey-Eco can stop this plaque build-up. Working with saliva, the brush controls the bacteria responsible for plaque.
Soladey is effective in reducing smokers’ tobacco stains. There are many testimonials claiming the removal of difficult stains in a matter of weeks with consistent use of the Soladey ionic toothbrush under a good light source.
Reduces bacteria that cause cavities and stops bleeding gums by the natural cleansing action of safe, free electrons emitted from the revolutionary solar conducting rod.
Teeth Feel & Look Cleaner and Whiter
Through superior cleaning ability, plaque adhesion to your teeth is reduced photo-electronically.
Toothpaste is Unnecessary
Effective plaque removal is possible with or without toothpaste. Ordinary light activates the patented semi-conductor rod and cleans your teeth without abrasives.
Affordable & Economical
With sensible care, the handle and rod will last a lifetime, requiring only inexpensive replaceable heads. The replacement heads provide all the benefits of the Soladey at a comparable cost of a regular toothbrush.
HOW TO USE IT
After wetting the bristles and semiconductor with water, brush your teeth lightly and thoroughly in the same way as with an ordinary toothbrush. You may, if you wish, use a very small amount of your preferred organic toothpaste on the bristles, although this is not necessary with Soladey-Eco. Make certain there is always adequate light source (natural or artificial) on the semiconductor rod as this is necessary for activation. If necessary the mouth should be kept partly open.
HOW TO CARE FOR IT
To keep your Soladey-Eco toothbrush operating at maximum efficiency, replace the brush portion regularly, as often as you would replace a standard toothbrush.
