Safety Of Toothpaste With Activated Carbon For Pregnant Women?
, whether charcoal products for teeth whitening are safe to use for pregnant women. I am currently 34week
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The product you mentioned, has activated carbon or activated charcoal which is not only for whitening teeth, it is also known for dealing with poisoning and digestive disorders such as diarrhea and bloating. Activated carbon is also contained in many skin care products. Although sold freely, its use is better based on doctor's advice.
Regarding your question, so far there has not been enough research to be able to ascertain its impact on pregnant women. Especially because the product you mentioned is not swallowed, but only on the surface layer of the teeth. So it must also be determined how much absorption in the body (if any).
Therefore if you talk safely, you should postpone the desire to whiten your teeth for several more weeks after your child is born. But even if you want to do it now, first make sure the product you buy is authentic, BPOM certified and sold by a trusted manufacturer, second still routinely check your pregnancy to the obstetrician and third, if there are any symptoms such as nausea, vomiting or other complaints, immediately Stop use and consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
