Why Is Oil Pulling With Coconut Oil Beneficial For Teeth?

A beautiful and healthy set of teeth makes for a beautiful smile and has many health benefits. Healthy teeth are necessary to eat properly. Gum inflammation, cavities, plaque, etc., if not treated, damage the tooth and can lead to bigger health concerns. Oil pulling is a traditional Indian remedy that may helps whiten teeth, freshen breath, and fight harmful oral bacteria. Oil pulling with coconut oil has become a prominent practice nowadays as a natural way to maintain oral health. 

How Does Oil Pulling with Coconut Oil Work?

Oil pulling is when you put a small amount of oil in your mouth and swish it around like mouthwash. Then, after some time, you spit it out. Coconut oil pulling has a major role in reducing harmful bacteria in the mouth. If not handled, these bacteria form a biofilm on top of your teeth, known as plaque. Significant buildup of plaque can cause bad breath, gingivitis, cavities, and other gum diseases. The way this method works is that while swishing the oil, the bacteria also get swished around and absorbed in the oil. 

Oil pulling can be done with any edible oil, but studies suggest that extra virgin coconut oil is the best oil for this method. The rich nutrients, including lauric acid, present in coconut oil offer antimicrobial, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory benefits. Besides, the taste also makes the process enjoyable. You can use Puvi cold-pressed Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, which is chemical, adulterant, and preservative-free. 

What are the Benefits of Coconut Oil Pulling?

The various benefits of oil pulling with coconut oil for enhancing oral health and teeth quality are:

  • Coconut Oil Helps Fight Bacteria:There are a number of bacteria present in your mouth, both harmful and beneficial. Among the harmful bacteria, the one that is primarily responsible for tooth decay is  Streptococcus mutans. A 2016 study has found that oil pulling with coconut oil for 10 mins has decreased the amount of this bacteria in saliva in less than two weeks. 
  • Coconut Oil to Cure Gingivitis: Gum inflammation, or gingivitis, is painful and can also damage teeth. Coconut oil pulling benefits also include fighting this issue. 
  • Coconut Oil to Reduce Bad Breaths: Some studies have found that regular oil pulling with coconut oil has helped prevent bad breath caused by bacteria. 

How to do Oil Pull with Coconut Oil - Procedure

The method of coconut oil pulling for teeth is fairly simple. 

  1. First, you need to put about a tablespoon or 15ml of oil in your mouth.
  2. Then you have to swish the oil around for at least 15-20 mins.
  3. After that, you have to spit it out and brush your teeth with good toothpaste. 

Try to spit in some tissues or waste paper to avoid clogging your pipes. Also, you do not need to apply extra force. Just swish as you would with your regular mouthwash. Oil pulling should not strain your cheek muscles, and if it does, use less force and less oil. 

Coconut oil pulling should ideally be done on an empty stomach. You can also fit it in while showering. However, what is most important is the quality of the oil you are using. You can choose from Puvi’s range of Cold Pressed Coconut Oils or their Extra Virgin Coconut Oils for your oil-pulling regime and ensure peak oral health.
