Brushing teeth with (active) charcoal? The operation and benefits of charcoal toothpastes!

Activated charcoal has a cleansing effect and ensures optimal oral health. The charcoal has a positive effect on the bacteria in your mouth and keeps the PH-value in your mouth neutral. These pure minerals are also good for your gums. Are you asking yourself: how does charcoal toothpaste work? And why should I brush with charcoal? Then read on, because we will tell you all about the effects and advantages of activated charcoal toothpaste.

Why use activated charcoal in toothpaste?

Activated charcoal is different from the black coals you might think of when you think of charcoal. This fine powder is made from bamboo, wood, coal, nut shells or coconut shells. These materials are heated to temperatures of up to 900 °C before being processed with hot air or steam. What remains is a jet-black powder, activated carbon, with a large internal surface area. This makes activated carbon capable of adsorption. This is applied in the purification of drinking water, for example. A soluble substance is extracted from water by means of a solid.

Types of toothpaste with charcoal

There are various types of toothpaste with charcoal. This black toothpaste has a strong cleaning effect and is used in the same way as other toothpastes. You use your ordinary toothbrush and keep the same brushing technique and time.

Toothpaste tablets with active carbon

Toothpaste tablets are an environmentally and mouth friendly alternative to regular toothpaste. They are packaged in reusable jars instead of plastic tubes.

Tooth powder with charcoal

Tooth powder is also an environmentally friendly alternative to toothpaste. The powder sticks to the moist toothbrush. When it comes into contact with saliva, it starts to foam slightly.

White teeth through charcoal toothpaste?

More and more people are choosing charcoal to whiten their teeth. Charcoal works like a scrub and removes, among other things, tannin from your teeth. This substance is found in coffee, tea and wine and causes discolouration of teeth. Charcoal removes stains in a mild and natural way. Does charcoal make your teeth whiter? Yes, because in addition to its abrasive effect it has a very high absorption capacity and active charcoal absorbs colourings and toxic substances.

The safety of activated charcoal in toothpaste

Is charcoal toothpaste safe? Yes, if you keep to the same brushing time and brush your teeth twice a day. Brushing too much with charcoal can wear down the enamel of your teeth.
