What is activated charcoal?
Activated charcoal is the secret ingredient to a white smile. It's an oxidized version of charcoal and can be used to effectively whiten teeth. It removes external stains from your teeth without the toxic chemical ingredients used in commercial tooth whitening.
This tooth whitening promotes good oral health and can change the pH in the mouth, helping to reduce things that cause cavities, gum disease and bad breath.
All by simply dipping a wet toothbrush into the fine, odourless black dust.
There are so many benefits of activated charcoal that we can't even count them on our own hands, but there are several huge benefits we think are worth telling you about!
We think the best benefit of the activated charcoal is to get rid of thousands of types of bacteria in your mouth. A lot of the bacteria are friendly but there are also quite a few that aren't. Bacteria is what causes what is commonly known as 'plaque' which builds up in a 'biofilm' layer on your teeth. This plaque is tough to get rid of which is where the charcoal comes into play!
Activated charcoal has been found to be an ideal choice because the lauric acid binds with the bacteria in the mouth during the cleaning process then once you spit out the charcoal foam which develops after you brush (don't worry its meant to do this) you're also spitting out a lot of the harmful bacteria and toxins that build up in your mouth daily which is exactly the reason we suggest you use activated charcoal everyday... so you can have that GREATWHITES smile we love to see!
