By Andreana Patrinos

Coconut oil pulling is one of the most effective ways to remove bacteria and improve oral health. Although it has taken a while to gain momentum, the practice isn’t new. Oil pulling is an old remedy that uses natural substances to clean and detoxify teeth and gums. It also whitens teeth naturally and improves the gums whilst removing harmful bacteria

How does it work?

Oil is swished in the mouth for a short time each day. Oil cuts through plaque and removes toxins without harming the teeth or gums. It sucks the dirt out of your mouth, creating a clean oral environment. This allows for the proper flow of dental liquid that is needed to prevent cavities and disease.

Main benefits:

  • Cures tooth decay
  • Whitens teeth
  • Strengthens gums and jaw
  • Heals bleeding gums
  • Kills bad breath
  • Prevention of cavities
  • Soothes throat dryness
  • Reduces inflammation

It is important that oil pulling is part of a comprehensive oral health cleanse, rather than to replace any element of a normal cleaning process. Microbes are picked up as though they are being drawn to a powerful magnet. Bacteria hiding under the crevices in the gums and in pores within the teeth are sucked out of their hiding places.

We know that tooth decay is caused by bacteria and to some users, not only does it contribute to oral health, but overall health and wellbeing too.
