Welcome to my blog! This blog is meant for education about activated charcoal toothpaste as well as the benefits of using natural products for teeth and gums. So are you ready to ditch your branded toothpaste laced with harmful chemicals like fluoride and sodium laureth sulphate (SLS)? Feel free to read our blog and articles to learn more about this organic black toothpaste as well as the pros and cons of choosing it over the alternatives.
Why Activated Charcoal for Teeth?
You may be wondering how putting black grimy soot in your mouth can benefit your teeth and dental hygiene. Activated charcoal has many benefits for oral care and this has been traced back to over 10,000 years used by ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine healers.
It is even used in modern day medicine to treat certain cases of poisoning. In modern day medicine, purified charcoal is pumped into the stomach and when inside, it saturates and helps to suck up poisons like alcohol and cyanide. This is due to specific properties of the processed carbon that act as a sort of magnet.
As with medical application on poisons in the stomach, activated charcoal also works as a magnet on teeth stains. Stains on the teeth are created from coffee and other foods and drinks and are pretty difficult to remove. Chemicals like fluoride are often used to clean the teeth. While these chemicals do work, many people like to avoid chemicals and prefer the natural way of cleaning stains.
So How Does Charcoal Toothpaste Work?
The same properties of activated charcoal mentioned above apply also to teeth whitening and oral hygiene. The active ingredient in the black paste toothpaste works on teeth and gums in two ways:
1. The porous properties of the carbon structure work as a magnet on the teeth. In this way, the toothpaste works to suck up stains and residue underneath the enamel. Due to these properties: stains are attracted and “sucked up” into the paste.
2. The activated charcoal structure works as an abrasive “sandpaper-like” substance that scrubs the teeth and gums. Think of it like a very fine sandpaper that can gently scrub the surface of the teeth and enamel. This works in two ways:
a) It cleans build-up of calcium and other minerals on the outside of the enamel by gently scrubbing against it.
b) It scrubs lightly against the enamel and works to release stains embedded within it. To avoid damaging the enamel too much it is best to use charcoal toothpaste lightly and properly. It is important to remember that this product is not intended to be used daily and instead
meant as a supplement to regular brushing to remove teeth stains naturally. Feel free to read more on our blog about this.
Charcoal Toothpaste Results – Scam or Legit?
So obviously the results and possible benefits of using activated charcoal toothpaste is the reason people want to buy it. The good news is that if used correctly, this teeth cleaning agent can work naturally and effectively. Some bloggers and v-bloggers are purporting this natural toothpaste to be a scam.
The only way to identify it as legit or a scam is to try this black toothpaste and see for yourself. We are not here to sell you a product, and simply built this blog to inform our readers to alternative natural remedies to traditional teeth whitening products. Remember, not everyone wants to use chemicals – this is likely the reason you are here reading this.
My Story & Results With Charcoal
So as for activated charcoal results for teeth whitening, I personally have had good results with it. In my younger years, I used to be a smoker and an avid coffee drinker (still am :)). I also enjoyed my diet soda. For those of you who didn’t know, coffee, soda, and smoking cigarettes are the black bain of teeth discoloration.
As I learned to live naturally and more healthily in my early 30’s, I came across many homeopathic and natural remedies to replace old habits. I stopped my anti-depressants and other prescriptions, but unfortunately, my teeth stayed discolored and stained. I tried everything from teeth bleaching to Crest White-Strips. While these things helped, I no longer wanted to use chemicals on my teeth. Fortunately, I found activated charcoal toothpaste and learned that it was an all-natural and organic alternative to other teeth whitening methods (which were also very hard hitting on the pocket-book).
The issue was, I tried activated charcoal toothpaste about 4 years ago and at the time, there was not a wealth of information about using this product naturally for teeth whitening and oral hygiene. Regardless of the lack of information, I used this product to great success. I had similar results to teeth bleaching, and although it was a slower process, the black toothpaste achieved similar results with time. I was so impressed and happy!
So my goal of my story and my blog is to tell the world that natural teeth whitening can be achieved with activated charcoal. No need for expensive chemicals and procedures. Education on this refined method (that was used as far as 10,000 years ago) is key. We have come a long way since the stone ages with oral hygiene, however sometimes natural is just better, as well as just effective. So why not give it a try :)?
