Activated charcoal is a fine, odorless, black powder made by superheating common charcoal.
This superheating process changes the structure of charcoal, making it more porous and hence more adsorbent to other materials such as harmful toxins, bacteria, and chemical substances.
Activated charcoal’s useful health & medicinal benefits are well known and it is only in recent times has this substance been found useful for improving oral hygiene.
So what can activated charcoal do for your teeth?
Whiter & Brighter teeth
Activated charcoal not only has increased porosity, but it also has a greater surface area which helps in adsorbing some more of the chemicals and agents that stain the teeth. When embedded into the bristles of a soft toothbrush it increases its ability to clean off tooth stains and help the enamel appear brighter.
Eliminates Mouth Odour
Activated charcoal adsorbs the bacteria that cause mouth odor (Halitosis). Some of these bacteria hide at the back of the tongue and in between teeth surfaces, acting on food debris to cause tooth decay and bad odor.
When embedded into the filaments of a dental floss, flossing will not only remove trapped food debris but will also adsorb the bacteria acting on the food substrate hiding between teeth surfaces.
Great For Tooth Decay
Cavities and tooth decay are principally caused by the action of the bacteria Streptococcus Mutans on sugars present in food. This bacterial action produces acids that wear down the enamel.
Activated charcoal adsorbs this bacteria and the toxins they produce thereby protecting the enamel from active wear.
