Activated charcoal, natural organic teeth whitening tooth powder to whiten the teeth, remove food stains and to freshen the breath. Enjoy a brighter, whiter smile.Anecdotal evidence suggests that charcoal can clean and whiten the enamel on teeth by removing plaque, adsorbing the colourants in food, drink and stains caused by smoking and vaping. In addition, the ions contained in active charcoal can pass through the porous enamel covering of the tooth to brighten the underlying dentin. [Source 1. pg. 1319] Besides food stains, activated charcoal can remove staining caused by Chlorhexidine mouth washes. Charcoal also freshens the breath and it has antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties.What is activated charcoal?Activated charcoal is made from coconut husks which are heated to form charcoal. Coconut husks produce a purer product than willow or other woods. The raw charcoal is then 'activated' - exposed to super heated steam to remove non-carbon elements.The activation process purifies the charcoal by creating microscopic empty holes in the surface, making it even more porous. The activation process increases the adsorbency of charcoal by 300%. It means that just 1g of activated charcoal has the surface area of 3000 squared meters. The resulting activated charcoal is black, odourless and tasteless. It has the ability to adsorb 1000 x its own weight in impurities.Our Organic activated charcoal is 100% pure. Our charcoal meets British Pharmaceutical Codex 1934 standards. We only purchase food grade, organic activated charcoal, made in the UK.Why is activated charcoal used for oral hygiene?The surface of activated charcoal has a negative charge which means it can bind to toxins, ions, molecules and free radicals in liquids and gasses. The binding process, where toxins stick to the outside of the charcoal particles rather than being drawn inside, is called adsorption. These toxins are then removed from the mouth after brushing by rinsing. Because of its rare characteristics, activated carbon possesses an exceptional ability to capture water-dissolved contaminants that include taste, odour, colour and toxin promoting species.What are the benefits of activated charcoal for teeth?
