About the Soladey-J3X Ionic Toothbrush
Please note that the white and black J3X are no longer available.
The new Soladey J3X model uses the same technology and principles as the original Soladey-Eco toothbrush with the added efficiency of an integrated solar panel. A revolutionary ionic titanium toothbrush that cleans and whitens teeth without toothpaste. The additional benefit of the solar panel is that it enables light activation at the back of the mouth where normally one would have to open their mouth a little more to ensure light exposure.
It comes in 3 attractive colours – blue, green and red
The Soladey J3X Ionic Toothbrush features a comfortable grip and comes in stylish colours and uses the existing standard replacement heads. Not only is the Soladey J3X toothbrush convenient to keep in the car, purse, and lunchbox, it is also ideal for travel.
Researchers have already tested the toothbrush in cultures of bacteria that cause periodontal disease, and demonstrated that the brush causes “complete destruction of bacterial cells”.
How It Works:
The Soladey-J3X has a solar panel at its base that transmits electrons to the top of the toothbrush through a lead wire. The electrons react with acid in the mouth, creating a chemical reaction that breaks down plaque and kills bacteria as shown below. The toothbrush requires no toothpaste, and can operate with about the same amount of light as needed by a solar-powered calculator.
Once the acid is neutralised, plaque disintegrates – the natural and 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!
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 toothbrushes 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 toothbrush under a good light source.

Soladey at a comparable cost of a regular toothbrush.
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.
