Types of Oil to use for Oil Pulling When Gum Health is Your Main Goal
Posted on 4/20/2018 by Front Desk
Oil pulling is an ancient practice that involves "pulling" or passing a fluid in between your teeth. This process has been identified as a practice that can be beneficial to your oral and overall health. The oils used for pulling can destroy different types of bacteria that are known to cause gum disease and cavities. There are different types of oils you can use. Each has its own unique properties. Here are the common ones you can try and use at home yourself. Coconut OilCoconut oil is one of the most highly recommended for oil pulling. It has powerful antibacterial and antiviral properties that kill microbes that can accelerate tooth decay and irritate the gums causing inflammation. It has been found to be particularly effective in limiting the action of streptococcus mutans, which is a bacteria responsible for cavities. These oils contain emulsifiers that scrub away biofilms that where the bacteria thrive. Coconut oil can help prevent the buildup of plaque, especially on the tongue, thereby preventing bad breath. Due to its antibacterial properties, researchers have suggested that coconut oil mixed with baking soda could be a great alternative where toothpaste is absent. Sesame OilSesame Oil is another oil that is great for oil pulling. The oils contain good amounts of omega 3 fatty acids, which prevent inflammation and boost immune system functionality. Sesame oil can also eliminate bacteria that causes bad breath and plaque. Its ability to remove plaque can significantly increase the appearance of your teeth making them whiter. Sesame oil is used to alleviate pain and can be beneficial to people experiencing gum pain caused by periodontal disease. For more information on how to keep your gums healthy, reach out to us today. We can help teach you the proper oils to use, plus other methods to keep your gums as healthy as possible....
