Soladey-Eco - the revolutionary light activated ionic toothbrush
A Revolution in Dental Care!
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
It looks like an ordinary toothbrush, but closer examination
reveals a rod that runs through the replaceable bristle
head and into the handle.This metal rod is the secret
to Soladey-Eco. It is made of a patented semiconductor
material that when activated by light produces electrons
that help remove dental plaque.
Reduces Bacteria & Plaque
Bacteria in plaque attack food, producing acid. This
acid causes bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease.
Normally, saliva neutralizes this action. But when plaque
builds up, it acts as a barrier, preventing the neutralizing
action of the saliva. According to clinical studies
(see menu bar at left), the Soladey can stop this plaque
buildup. Working with saliva, the brush controls and
reduces the bacteria responsible for plaque.
Reasons for using SOLADEY
REDUCES CAVITIES - actually 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 photoelectronically
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 It Works
is a light-activated titanium rod (semiconductor) inside
the handle. When exposed to any light source (a fluorescent
bathroom light, a plain light bulb, or sunlight), the
photo-sensitive titanium rod inside Soladey converts
light into negatively-charged ions (electrons). The
rod releases these ions, which blend with saliva to
attract positive (hydrogen) ions from the acid in the
dental plaque on your teeth.
The acid is then neutralized and plaque is disintegrated
- a scientific approach to a cleaner and healthier mouth!
Toothpaste is not required as water (saliva) is the
acting ingredient - oral hygiene now becomes not only
natural, but also economical! For those who find it
hard to give up toothpaste, use only very small amount!
How to use it
For the front teeth,
the toothbrush is leaned aslant (45 degrees) and
the ridgeline portion of the fascicles of the brush
are firmly applied to the boundary line of the tooth
and the gum.
Following the lines of
the gum, while counting to ten, the brush is moved
to the right and left.
For the molars also,
follow the same way of applying the toothbrush as
for the front teeth, moving and polishing the outside
and inside surfaces of the teeth (each place is
brushed while counting to ten).
The tip of the toothbrush
should be applied carefully to the outside of the
The back side of the
front teeth is brushed with the heel of the toothbrush.
In order to remove food
particles from between the teeth, use the hair ends
of the toothbrush. Brush the upper teeth down from
the bottom to the top; brush the lower teeth upwards,
from the bottom to the top.
When the alignment of
the teeth is uneven, brush the teeth one by one
using the hair ends of the toothbrush.
At the last, the surface
of the tongue should be brushed. This is especially
effective for bad breath.
wetting the bristles and semiconductor with water (saliva
is sufficient outdoors - *see note below) brush all
surfaces of your tongue without using toothpaste, and
especially first thing in the morning after stomach
acids have accumulated from sleeping. Brush from the
back of tongue (not in the throat!) to the tip of the
tongue. You may see discolouration on the bristles (concentrated
bacteria and accumulation of acids), and so make sure
you rinse bristles with water repeatedly to remove this
film. Once you feel the bristles and tongue are adequately
clean then you can work on the tooth surfaces as now
there will be less concentration of bacteria in your
mouth. Bear in mind that the tongue generally carries
most of the mouth's bacteria! continue to brush your
teeth lightly and thoroughly in the same way as with
an ordinary toothbrush. Concentrate on contacting the
teeth rather than applying force.This is reason we recommend
a MEDIUM head. Unlike a conventional toothbrush, you
do not need to brush with force, and so a medium head
will penetrate the spaces in between your teeth more
efficiently than a soft head and without splaying. Brushing
lightly will also be easier on your gums and help fight
gingivitis (gum disease/ receding gums).
*Note: Saliva is sufficient for brushing teeth outdoors,
but in this case we don't recommend you brush your tongue
outdoors without a source of running water available
to clean the bristles.
Make certain there is an adequate light source (natural
or artificial) necessary to activate the semiconductor.
If you are brushing the back teeth surfaces the rod
will receive limited direct light. If you close your
mouth over the rod then the lack of light will not allow
the ionic action to occur. Be aware then that when brushing
the back teeth that the light should reach the rod.
Open your mouth as wide as possible so that the available
light may reach your back teeth. The best option is
to move close to a direct light source which will illuminate
the inside of your mouth! The brighter the source the
better the result. You will notice that your saliva
will foam slightly when the toothbrush is working effectively.
If you are using toothpaste use very little as this
can foam over the rod and block light from reaching
Make sure you clean the rod after each use. If you
live in an area of hard water then carefully remove
the handle from the head and clean the rod with bristles
(your old toothbrush or a used head).
We recommend a natural mouthwash to replace toothpaste
and to freshen your breath. A few drops of NATURAL MINT
OIL or even OREGANO OIL also works well.
Remember not to throw the handle and rod away!
SAFETY: Make sure you keep the brush head attached
to the handle and rod at all times except during replacement.
Never leave the toothbrush or bare handle and rod near
young children or infants!
Replacing The Brush Head
keep your Soladey toothbrush operating at maximum efficiency,
replace the brush head regularly, as often as you would
replace a standard toothbrush. We recommend replacement
every 2 to 3 months or when the bristles start to curve
outwards. The figure right illustrates the proper method
of replacing the brush.
Detachment: Pull the head and handle apart along the
Insertion: Insert the head into the handle firmly.
DO NOT twist and/or bend the head and handle during
detachment and insertion.
After use, completely rinse toothpaste that may have
adhered to the clear plastic neck of the brush head
or the semiconductor.
Do not separate the brush from the handle except for
the purpose of replacement.
Never put the semiconductor in the mouth without the
If the semiconductor should become detached, reinsert
it into its hole in the handle.
The bacterial population in your mouth has direct impact
on your bodys health, the same way that your intestinal
flora can influence your general health. With todays
diet it is a challenge to maintain balance. Soladey
helps to fight and neutralize the acids that cause bad
breath and tooth decay, and the effects can be felt
long after you finish brushing!
Drink plenty of water daily to cleanse and assist all
bodily functions. Avoid sugars and highly concentrated
foods and drinks. A rule of thumb is to seek high water
Frequently asked questions
Q: What is the life of the semiconductor?
A: With proper use, almost indefinitely.
Q: Is the semiconductor safe?
A: Titanium dioxide, the metal from which the rod is
made, does not dissolve or corrrode in water, so it
is perfectly safe.
Q: Will teeth become yellow if toothpaste is not
A: Reflecting the dentin color, healthy teeth are naturally
off-white in color. Brushing only with water restores
their original color. If you must use toothpaste, only
a very small amount is recommended.
Q: Is there any proof of the effectiveness of the
A: Clinical literature is available from dental colleges
in Japan and Canada. According to studies, toothbrushes
with semiconductors have proven to be as effective as
plaque removing tools.
Q: Can Soladey be used to clean teeth that are not
original such as porcelain-fused metal crowns?
A: Yes, Soladey will effectively reduce plaque and provide
an anti-bacterial effect even on modified teeth.
Q: Can Soladey be used with braces or a retainer?
A: Soladey will help neutralise bacteria for those using
braces. Brush carefully to avoid damaging the materials
on the braces. Remove retainers prior to brushing and
make sure the retainers have been cleaned before replacing
them in the mouth.
