One thought on “What Do Studies Show About Activated Charcoal?

    This is a lot like using baking soda, which also isn’t recommended by many dentists. Enamel can’t be replaced: your teeth will become vulnerable to cavities and sensitivity. The reason activated charcoal is able to lighten stains on your teeth is because it’s made out of fine, abrasive grains, which wear the stains off. Activated charcoal is used in many health remedies because it soaks up toxins in the stomach, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it does much with your teeth. One of the reasons that dentists are hesitant to recommend charcoal toothpaste is that it hasn’t been shown to actually be helpful. With all that in mind, even though charcoal tooth whitening isn’t necessarily good for your teeth, it may not be the worst thing available. a few dentists say that you can use it every month or so, in order to scrub stains from your enamel. Since the charcoal is abrasive, it can cut through the plaque and then start wearing down the enamel on your teeth.
