How to Use Activated Charcoal for Dental Health
Even though activated charcoal has been used since 1550 BC in ancient Egypt, it is still a great compound that can improve your life in a natural way. Brushing your teeth with a small amount of activated charcoal can help freshen your mouth, prevent cavities and even whiten your teeth without the use of harsh whitening agents such as fluoride.
