Soladey looks like an ordinary toothbrush, but closer examination reveals a titanium (metal) ionic conducting rod, which runs through the replaceable bristle head and into the handle.
SOLADEY eco’s new shaped handle offers a more comfortable and ergonomic grip. It also comes in 6 attractive colours - red, yellow, green, purple, pink and white!
|The newest model of ionic toothbrush from Soladey, the ION5 is now available!
This new ionic toothbrush is the latest development of Soladey and guarantees a complete, healthy and beneficent brushing experience. This new model has a better hand grip combined with the trusted quality of Soladey ionizing technique.
The Soladey ION5 has an extra brush head included.
The complete oral hygiene solution:
The Soladey Ionic Toothbrush has a light-activated titanium dioxide rod in the hand grip. When a light source on the rod shines in the ionic toothbrush, it converts this light into negatively charged ions (electrons). These negatively charged ions blend with your saliva and make positively charged acid particles (of plaque and tartar) harmless. Due to this scientific ingenious way of oral hygiene makes tooth paste unnecessary. Water (saliva) is still the only active ingredient needed to ensure a clean and healthy oral hygiene. Of course, you can still use toothpaste if you want.** Brushing your teeth with the Soladey Ion5 is efficient, healthy and cheap!
** Meditech Europe strongly recommends for health reasons not to use fluorinated toothpaste.

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.
|The bacterial population in your mouth has direct impact on your body’s health, the same way that your intestinal flora can influence your general health. With today’s 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 content foods.
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.
This rod is the secret to Soladey. It's made of a patented solar conducting material that allows light, by photoelectric activity, to be converted into a natural energy source which kills the harmful bacteria in your mouth.
How It Works
There 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!
||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.
Clinical studies show that titanium exposed to a light source has an excellent bacterical capacity against Streptococcus mutans., a micro-organism found in the mouth that is particularly related to dental caries.

In Japan a clinical report on titanium toothbrushes found that dental plaque removal was significant during the early phase of plaque formation and concluded that the brush was effective in the control of plaque.

Another Japanese study concluded that improvements in gingivitis and oral hygiene can be expected by using a toothbrush equipped with a titanium semiconductor.

A clinical study conducted at a Canadian College of Dentistry indicated that removal of plaque - from buccal surfaces especially – was more apparent using the ionic brush than it was using the control brush without semiconductor.

Soladey ION5 Titanium - Light Activated Ionic Toothbrush
Instructions for use
This new model Soladey ION5 uses the same technology and principles as the SOLADEY eco with the added efficiency of an integrated solar panel. This ionic toothbrush contains a photosensitive titanium dioxide rod. When exposed to light and water, the rod releases ions which help to remove dental plaque.
- Scientifically proven to remove more plaque than an ordinary toothbrush
- Natural anti-bacterial Effect
- Brush heads are replaceable
- Ideal for travel and outdoor use
- 2 types of replacement head are available
- Pet friendly
- SAFETY: Keep the brush head attached to the handle except during replacement
Wet the brush and rod (saliva is sufficient outdoors) and find the brightest light available (natural or artificial) for brushing. The light source must be sufficient to power a calculator. With toothpaste, use only a small amount. When brushing, grip the handle high enough that the solar panel remains uncovered, allowing light to reach it. Brush teeth after meals or at least twice a day when possible. Follow your dentist’s recommendations. The toothbrush can last a lifetime if used correctly. To keep the rod in good condition, remove the head by pulling the handle out straight along the axis carefully and then clean with a brush.
Soladey – ION5 Titanium Ionic Toothbrush Heads
Replace the brush heads regularly (every 2-3 months) to ensure optimal use. Ensure that the rod is always clean. Use a brush to remove any deposits. For correct use of bristles and type consult an oral care expert.
Safety: Always keep the brush head attached to the handle except during replacement.
To change the brush head: Pull the head and handle apart along a straight axis without twisting or bending. Insert the head firmly into the handle.
