Like a conventional toothbrush, a charcoal toothbrush has a similar shape and design along with bristles on the brush head. However, the difference is that those bristles are infused with charcoal rather than being standard synthetic bristles that simply sweep and capture bacteria and debris.
Some charcoal toothbrushes have a plastic/rubber handle with charcoal-infused bristles, whilst others have a wooden, normally bamboo, handle.
Note: Bamboo Toothbrush Charcoal has a Soft bristle type.
Bamboo is a more natural option as this biodegrades whereas plastic does not.
While switching to a natural toothbrush may seem like a small change, the stats above show that we could all make a big difference if we each committed to doing things a better way.
The charcoal absorbs and binds bacteria together and a microscopic level to reduce and remove them from the mouth compared to a conventional toothbrush that scrapes and sweeps this away.
tooth staining/whitens teeth
Tea, coffee, red wine, and smoking are just some of the better-known causes for stained /aged or yellow teeth.
The activated charcoal in the bristles of the brush absorbs the tannins that bind to your teeth and cause stains. As it removes these through regular brushing your teeth become whiter as the contaminants that age and darken them are removed.
You can find a return to a more natural white color through a more natural method, no bleaching or cosmetic dentistry required.
bad breath & odor
The same carbon-absorbing properties that remove plaque and tannins can too remove the bacteria that cause you to suffer from bad breath.
The idea here is not to mask or overpower the natural odor produced by your mouth, but to remove the bacteria that create the odor in the first place for a more pleasant post-clean feeling for you and for those you interact with throughout the day.
