Activated charcoal powder created quite a stir when it came out in the market. Especially when it comes to whitening your teeth. Since it came out, people are often asking: how often can you use charcoal powder on your teeth? The question has merit because dentists often advise against using something abrasive on your teeth. The reason is that most products that claim to whiten teeth achieve their purpose by taking out a thin layer of your teeth’s enamel. This gradual erosion results in exposure of the sensitive dentine after a long period of use.
How often should you brush your teeth with activated charcoal?
There are different forms of activated charcoal available in the market. They can be in tablet, capsule, or powdered form. What you need to consider when using activated charcoal powder on your teeth is the size of the particles. The smaller the particles, the safer they are to use for your teeth for whitening.
It’s advised that you brush your teeth with Actinera® Activated Charcoal Pearly Powder for 5 days straight with a soft-bristled toothbrush. You can use it twice a day using soft and gentle strokes. Take care not to press too hard especially along the gumline.
Using gentle pressure and soft-bristled toothbrushes ensures that the Actinera® Activated Charcoal Pearly Powder does its job in taking out stains without being too abrasive on the enamel. If you have sensitive teeth, use activated charcoal once a day. Do this 3 times a week, every other day to give your teeth time to rest in between use.
How does activated charcoal whiten teeth
You can expect to see results after two weeks. Actinera® Activated Charcoal Pearly Powder is a highly adsorbent material that draws out and binds food stains, plaque and bacteria from your teeth, leaving it clean and white. The added kaolinite clay helps further in cleaning and polishing teeth while aiding in remineralization of your teeth’s enamel.
Using activated charcoal is one of the safest ways to whiten teeth. It’s inert, hypoallergenic, and highly effective in getting rid of all that nasty stuff that stains your teeth. Remember to brush your teeth with a separate clean toothbrush and regular toothpaste after using Actinera® Activated Charcoal Pearly Powder. The powder can seep beneath your gumline and stain your tongue. Using a clean toothbrush can help remove the stains, and no one will be able to tell the difference.
It’s recommended that you brush your teeth for 2 minutes to give the activated charcoal enough time to do its job for improved oral health. If you have questions about how often you can use activated charcoal powder on your teeth, feel free to leave a comment in the section below!
