Oil pulling is one of the most effective ancient dental care techniques. It involves swishing a tablespoon of some natural oil in your mouth for 15-20 minutes. This technique improves your oral health by killing the bacteria in your oral cavity, removing bad breath, as well as detoxing your gum and teeth. It also whitens your teeth.
Likewise, many people who have tried oil pulling claim that it can also treat headaches, skin conditions, asthma, infections, and hormonal imbalances.
This technique is mostly used in effectively getting rid of tartar and plaque.
Oil pulling is quite easy to perform. Simply put several teaspoons of olive, sesame, or coconut oil in your mouth and then swish it around. Spit out the oil after about 20 minutes and rinse properly with water. It is best to do this in the morning or just before bedtime in order to get optimal results.
During oil pulling, ensure the oil becomes thick and milky in texture. It should be creamy white when you are done. Lastly, rinse your mouth and then brush your teeth.
The technique may seem difficult at first, but you’ll get used to it.
If you want to improve your oral health and whiten your teeth, this is the easiest and most effective technique you can use.
