By restricting the diet to only hot or cold foods, interfering with normal oral hygiene, or even impairing basic functions like talking and eating, tooth sensitivity is a serious issue that millions of people struggle with every day.

Excessive brushing, chronic indigestion, eating disorders, and countless other health conditions and associated medications can all contribute to the deterioration of the protective enamel and dentin that keep the sensitive root of each tooth safe.

While tooth decay and cavities can contribute to sensitive teeth, the more common culprits are mineral deficiencies and the chronic deterioration of enamel. There are countless oral health products that promise to deliver relief from tooth sensitivity, but these products are often packed with harsh chemicals and synthetic additives. Not only are these products unpredictable, but their focus on the exterior of the teeth neglects the mineral metabolism that the body requires to retain essential dentin and enamel.

By utilizing activated charcoal in oral and ingested applications, you can return your mouth to a healthy balance, naturally restoring the essential minerals in the bloodstream and body.

Activated charcoal will also support your oral health maintenance systems that produce saliva, eliminate bad bacteria, and retain minerals within the teeth.

Using an activated charcoal toothpaste and mouthwash in conjunction with 1 teaspoon of activated charcoal in meals, smoothies, or solutions each day will help alleviate tooth sensitivity easily and naturally.
