  1. Dentists Warn About Dangers Of Activated Charcoal Teeth Whiteners.

WSLS-TV Roanoke, VA (3/30) reported southwestern Virginia dentists are speaking out against the trend of activated charcoal teeth whitener, noting there is no research or evidence to support their benefits or safety. The article reports that despite the products’ “bizarre look and lack of support from the American Dental Association, these activated charcoal toothpastes are blowing up in popularity.” However, instead of relying on abrasive products that “could lead to long-term damage,” experts recommend using ADA approved methods, “like a whitening toothpaste or white strips that have been tested to be safe.”

Dental professionals can direct their patients to, ADA’s consumer website, for evidence-based information about teeth whitening, including information on natural teeth whitening methods, which notes “there is no evidence that shows dental products with charcoal are safe or effective for your teeth, according to the September 2017 issue of The Journal of the American Dental Association.”
