What Can Charcoal Toothbrush Do?
Brands that manufacture charcoal toothbrushes claim that their toothbrushes can:
Absorb Plaque: As per reports, it is being mentioned that carbon can absorb anything at a microscopic level; hence it very easily, without any scrubbing, removed the plaque from your teeth without damaging the enamel on it.
