Scientific studies demonstrate the efficacy of the ionic toothbrush in the prevention and control of oral hygiene without the use of toothpaste or other compounds.
Numerous studies conducted in the last decade have amply demonstrated the efficacy and mechanism of action of the ionic toothbrush. Its ability to use light energy – natural or environmental – together with water produces an electrolysis effect that significantly increases the pH of the oral environment, to a more basic and less acidic environment. These tests have been carried out in lactic acid solutions and pH readings have been taken serially.
According to the comparisons of the readings with respect to the time in the axis of horizontal, and the value of the pH in the vertical axis. The comparison is made between the classic Solider model the ECO (or Solider 2), the new model Solider J3X Titanium and a conventional brush. The study demonstrates how it is able to change the pH of the medium significantly compared to a conventional brush, and at the same time demonstrates the greater electrolytic power of the new model compared to the previous one, thanks to the provision of solar micro plates that optimize the uptake of light energy, getting a greater spontaneous hydrolysis reaction, and completely natural.
Titanium dioxide is the semiconductor or photo catalyst that has the brush in the neck to carry out this action spontaneously and quickly. The light energy is powerful enough to break the bonds between the OH that make up the water molecule, the hydroxyl OH ions are captured by the teeth that act as cathodes and the acidic H + ions are captured by the brush that acts anode mode.
Brush-dental-ionic this fact causes the oral environment to change drastically to a less favorable environment for the bacteria present, with the consequent prevention and reduction of oral disorders.
On the other hand, studies in parallel have shown the effectiveness of the brush in the removal or reduction of dental plaque. This has been done by measuring the “plaque score” or plate index
This value is significantly diminished when using the brush with semiconductor or ionic compared to a placebo brush (which has no effect) and a conventional brush.
The teeth are negatively charged and the bacterial plaque positively. The rod of titanium dioxide is “activated” in the presence of light releasing negative ions. When the head wets the current of negative ions moves towards the bristles of the brush. When brushing the teeth with the ion brush, the teeth change their polarity, from positive to negative, and the negative charges of the bristles of the brush attract the positive charges of the bacterial plaque, eliminating it from the oral cavity.
Some important publications in the most important journals in the dental and biochemical sector that explain and detail the tests carried out to demonstrate the efficacy of ionic brushing.
