A Revolution in Dental Care
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 that when activated by light produces electrons that help remove dental plaque.
In Japan over 2 million Soladey-Eco toothbrushes and 5 million replacement heads are sold each year!
How It Works
When exposed to any light source (a fluorescent bathroom light, a plain light bulb, or sunlight), the photo-sensitive titanium rod inside Soladey-Eco converts light into negatively charged electrons (ions). The rod releases the ions, which blend 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 a cleaner and healthier mouth! Toothpaste is not required as water (saliva) is the active ingredient – oral hygiene now becomes not only natural, but also economical!
Soladey-Eco Toothbrush is available in 7 colours white, pink, purple, red, blue, yellow and purple.
To keep your Soladey-Eco toothbrush operating at maximum efficiency, replace the brush portion regularly, as often as you would replace a standard toothbrush.
How to use the Soladey-Eco Toothbrush
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. With sensible care, the handle and rod will last for years, requiring only inexpensive replacement heads. The replacement heads provide all the benefits of the Soladey-Eco at a comparable cost of a regular toothbrush.
Benefits – Reduces Bacteria and Plaque
Bacteria in plaque attack food, producing acid. This acid causes bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease. Normally, saliva neutralises this action. But 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 order to reduce smokers’ tobacco stains, and there are many testimonials claiming the removal of difficult stains in a matter of weeks with consistent use of the Soladey ionic brush under a good light source.

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 discovery. 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.
Soladey Scientific Trials
A blind, two-way crossover clinical trial was carried out by the College of Dentistry, University of Saskatchewan, Canada with 80 high school children of both sexes aged 13-16 years. The aim of the study was to compare the plaque removing ability of the Soladey toothbrush with a toothbrush of identical appearance but with an imitation bar made of synthetic resin (control brush) in place of the semiconductor. Both groups were advised to use the brushes according to manufacturer’s instructions for a period of 3 weeks using a small amount of a standard toothpaste which was provided.
The results of this study indicate that the Soladey toothbrush had better plaque removing ability, especially on the buccal surfaces1 of all teeth, than the control brush without the semiconductor.

A study was carried out by the Department of Preventative and Community Dentistry, Nippon Dental University at Tokyo with 60 adult female subjects who were dental hygiene school students. One group (32) used the Soladey and another (28) used a conventional toothbrush (control). The subjects’ oral conditions were examined 1, 2 and 3 weeks later using five standardised tests.
After the third week there was a significant improvement in gingivitis and oral cleanliness in the group using the Soladey compared with the control group.
