Charcoal Toothpaste: Is it Better for Oral Health?

It has been advertised that charcoal toothpaste is better than fluoride toothpaste for oral health and is the natural way to clean and whiten teeth. They also claim that charcoal toothpaste contains antibacterial agents and is environmentally friendly. However, the British Dental Journal recently published that there is no evidence to support these claims. Their findings contradict these claims and found that people using charcoal toothpaste may even experience more cavities and actually damage the enamel of their teeth due to its abrasiveness.
