By now, many people have heard of dental implants, but they may not understand exactly what they are or how they work.

Recently, a group of researchers surveyed patients at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry to get an idea of how much the patients knew about implants. The goal was to gauge public awareness and knowledge about dental implants.

What the Study Showed

Two groups of patients were studied, and the results were published in the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. The first group of patients were at the clinic seeking implant treatment; the second was there for general dental treatment.

Recently there's been a lot of interest in DIY teeth whitening using charcoal toothpaste because it seems like a natural, healthy approach for brightening your smile. But how effective is it and is it safe for your teeth? 

Why Charcoal?
