Oil Pulling Works
For those who don’t know what this is, it is not pulling your teeth out with oil. It is a method of rinsing your mouth with oil to pull out bacteria and germs when rinsed away. It also helps nourish the gums with vitamins and minerals. This can be done at home, and is good oral hygiene practice. Some dentists do it themselves, though they probably won’t mention it to you. Any vegetable oil used for cooking will do…never use motor oil as a substitute. Seriously though, vegetable oil contains some minerals and vitamins healthy for your teeth and gums. But if you don’t like the taste and feel of oil, well, rinsing with water is just fine.
