3 Surprising Benefits of Oil Pulling for Oral Health

oil pulling for oral health

Rooted in Ayurvedic medicine, the use of oil pulling for oral health is considered as an age-old remedy. The technique of oil pulling involves the use of natural oils, such as coconut oil, to clean and detoxify teeth and gums.

Benefits of Oil Pulling for Oral Health

Eliminate Bacteria

This ancient cleansing method eliminates bacteria and microorganisms from the mouth. During the process, the oil taken in from the outside sticks to the oil present in the membranes of the cells in the mouth and pulls off germs that are stuck inside the mouth.

Reduce Tooth Decay and Fight Gum Diseases

Oil pulling is said to reduce Streptococcus mutans bacteria (commonly found in the oral cavity), thereby reducing tooth decay. The method can also bring about a significant reduction in plaque. Oil pulling is also known to be effective against Gingivitis, an inflammation of the gum tissue.

Get Fresh Breath

If your bad breath is driving your loved one away or is making your colleagues uncomfortable, then oil pulling is a perfect solution. This method helps in keeping the breath fresh by removing bad bacteria from the mouth.

To conclude, the use of oil pulling for oral health is a safe method with no side effects. The method can also be used by people with sensitive teeth.
