Thanks for the review. Can’t believe I had to scroll so far down for one, all that noise about charcoal. I bet thats just marketing and the colour name of the toothbrush.

Just because you can't feel it doesn't mean your enamel isn't getting damaged. It can still be too abrasive for your teeth.

It's not something you can ignore. Please stop using this till more studies are done and it's declared safe.

So I had fruit flies hide in this tooth brush. I brush my teeth in the shower and I always spray the hell out of my tooth brush. But I guess they like this tooth brush is very fine and feels very nice on your teeth . I liked it too
Untill I brushed my teeth with a bunch of fruit flies. Do not recommend bugs hide in it .

Please talk to your dental health care professionals about the use of Charcoal toothpastes or brushes.

There are many factors in play when it comes to enamel wear. The obvious one being abrasion either from toothpastes with high abrasivitiy (usually "whitening" SKUs), or poor brushing habits. Those using electronic toothbrushes or medium/firm brushes might want to revisit their brushing technique with their dental hygienists if they're worried about their enamel.

It's worrying to hear people are brushing with "extreme pressure", regular use of a whitening toothpaste, and general brushing habits of people in this thread.

It's true what people have mentioned. Enamel wears away and once its gone, it's gone for good. Then you'll have to deal with dentin hypersensitivity and an array of dental issues that come along with it. You only get one set of adult teeth folks*. Take good care of them.
