We’ve been brushing our teeth the way we do now for about a century. So, when you consider how technologically advanced other areas have become during that time, it seems science has neglected the toothbrush. Sure, there are electric toothbrushes, but we want something truly groundbreaking.
A company called Euroviva has come through with what, at first glance, looks like a typical toothbrush. But it’s actually the Soladey Light Activated Ionic Toothbrush, with the key words being “light-activated” and “ionic.”
It may sound silly at first, but there’s actually sound science behind this idea. In the neck of the toothbrush is a titanium semiconductor that converts any kind of light into negative ions. These negative ions then mix with your saliva to attract plaque and acid’s positive ions, which makes the plaque virtually disappear while neutralizing the acidity.
Sound strange? Here’s where it gets even stranger: no toothpaste required! The semiconductor does the work of the toothpaste. However, if you absolutely must use some in order to feel like you’re truly cleaning your teeth, you should use just a tiny amount.
Will it catch on? Perhaps not quickly. But we can definitely see this as the next step in the evolution of dental hygiene.
