I am very happy to learn many new things from many people's opinions on my website.
About two weeks ago, I wrote an article about coconut oil - a super-healthy tropical oil.
Some people said that they used coconut oil as a mouthwash.
The fact also shows that there have been a few studies supporting this process, and many have also confirmed its positive effects.
Research works have announced the use of whitening teeth, keeping your breath fresh and improving the optimal oral health of this oil.
Although not proven, many people think that coconut oil also helps improve their health in other ways.
Now I do this myself every morning, and in just 10 days of application I was really surprised by the great effect it brought.
What Is Oil Pulling And How Does It Work?
Oil Pulling is an oil-based mouthwash, which is used as a mouthwash. Oil Pulling is also a traditional dental remedy used by India for thousands of years.
How to use Oil Pulling is easy, just put one tablespoon of oil into your mouth, then move the oil around your oral cavity for 15-20 minutes.
Doing this often will help reduce the amount of harmful bacteria in your oral cavity.
In fact, there are thousands of different types of bacteria in the oral cavity. Some are bacteria friendly, and some are harmful bacteria.
The bacteria in the mouth create a "biofilm" on the tooth - a thin layer covering the entire surface of the tooth. This membrane is known as the "plaque" of teeth.
There are some plaque on the teeth that is normal, but if not controlled they can cause all kinds of problems, including bad breath, yellow teeth, gingivitis, and tooth decay.
Oil Pulling is another simple operation. When the oil is strong in the oral cavity, the "stuck" bacteria in the teeth will dissolve in liquid oil.
Basically, you will eliminate a large number of bacteria and plaque in your mouth every time you do this.
I personally prefer coconut oil
Traditionally, Indians often use other oils such as sesame oil, sunflower oil to do this.
Oil Pulling is also an effective working oil, but I still prefer coconut oil because it has many health benefits.
Lauric acids (one of the fatty acids in coconut oil) have been shown to have antibacterial properties ... it can kill bacteria, viruses and fungi.
The flavor of coconut oil is also quite pleasant compared to other oils. In the early days of my application, I found it extremely uncomfortable with a full range, but I got used to it after a few days.
Now let's look at a few studies about Oli Pulling.
Oili Pulling Can Reduce Harmful Bacteria In The Oral Cavity.
Streptococcus mutans is one of the main bacteria in the oral cavity and is an important killer in plaque buildup and tooth decay.
In a study from 2008 with 20 boys, using Oil Pulling (or using sesame oil) reduced the number of Streptococcus mutans in plaque in as little as 2 weeks.
Although Oil Pulling is not as effective as chlorhexidine mouthwash, it is cheaper and less uncomfortable.
Oil Pulling Can Reduce Teeth and Gingivitis
Gingivitis is caused by gum infection and occurs when the immune system begins to be attacked by plaque.
Another study compared the effects of Oil Pulling and chlorhexidine mouthwash for teenagers with plaque-induced gingivitis. Both Pulling Oil and chlorhexidine mouthwash are effective against gingivitis.
Oil Pulling Can Improve Bad Mouth
Bad breath or bad breath, in many cases it is not produced by the smell of chemicals but the smell of gases produced by bacteria in the oral cavity.
It causes discomfort, and to get rid of it, you need to remove the bacteria in your oral cavity.
How Is Oil Pulling Used?
How to use Oil Pulling is extremely simple and effective.
Step 1. Put about a tablespoon of oil in your mouth.
Step 2. Use your mouth to move the oil around your mouth for about 15-20 minutes.
Step 3. Spout the oil, then brush your teeth.
If you use coconut oil like me, you need to keep it in your mouth for about 1 minute or longer so it melts because it is solid at room temperature.
Gargle with oil best at the time of empty stomach and before you brush your teeth. I myself often do that while bathing in the morning.
During the shower, I put oil in my mouth, then tried to push and pull the oil to move between my teeth. After the shower, I spit out the oil, rinse my mouth with white water and brush my teeth
After 10 days of implementation, I noticed my breathing was fresher and my teeth looked cleaner, white and shiny.
Although I don't have any dental problems yet, I realize that this gives me many good benefits.
On my web, there are also many contradictions, they do not believe in this way and I do not believe Oil Pulling can bring such effects.
But the truth has proved that Oil Pulling effectively reduces the amount of harmful bacteria in your oral cavity and helps to improve your oral health.
Inflammation can cause all kinds of health problems, suggesting that reducing the level of inflammation in the gums and the oral cavity can bring many overall health benefits.
Perhaps this is exactly why many people responded that their oral health really improved.
In summary, gargling with oil brings many benefits to dental health, and I will continue to do this.
