I expereinced severe Gingivitis in two areas of my Gums, I had a small amount of dental reconstruction done in the US it was very expensive, I moved to Turkey, in 05 and used Dr Tongs remedy for three years it works, But I was unable to find it, again, I found two Dentist in Turkey who did deep cleaning and replaced the broken bridges on the right side, But the stubborn gingivitis was not responding to the treatments the most rececnt dentist used. But a few months ago I was researching for home remedies for dental health and found this website and information about OP I started it from the Oil I strained from Sesame Butter, It showed instant positive results, clearing the white paste from the Tounge improving the healing of the infection under the gum line. Yes I have expereinced some of the healing side effects described by some of the People who use the Op. But it definitely is a solution to ridding the system of unwanted bacteria and Toxic deposits, Most medicallly trained professionals overlook and fail to treat or even aknowledge as the cause of many symptoms. that the Body uses to alert us that there is a underlining problem that must be addressed. I have heard it can take months to get the full benfits of OP, don't stop to you get it. Happy healthy attracts wealthy unfoldings. I hope this inspires and help those who read this.
I started oil pulling with ____ Coconut Oil about 10 days ago after my first visit with the dentist. I had a bad case of gingivitis; bleeding gums and was about to lose a molar, and was going to need a heavy duty cleaning. The dentist prescribed an alcohol-based mouthwash to use twice a day, which I really didn't want to use. A co-worker mentioned oil pulling so I researched it and then bought a jar of ____ Coconut Oil.
Long story short, I went back to the dentist last night and he was absolutely amazed on how my gums looked. He said he couldn't tell I had periodontal disease just by looking at my mouth, only by x-rays taken the week prior. The gingivitis had cleared up that much in just 9 days! I have been pulling only once a day every day and some days a 2nd time. No more gum bleeding either! I am thrilled with the results. I can't wait to hear what he has to say when I go back in 2 weeks!!
hi ya jennifer,
Thank you for your feedback, that all sounds very good, with really positive results, could you tell me what sesame oil you are using, I used sea salt from a health shop, but felt terrible after 2 days, I diluted a teaspoon in a cup of water, then swilled round my mouth at night, then I spat it out. I had really bad palpitations, that really scared me, didnt use again ended up in my bin, I will get some oregano oil this week, and hydrogen peroxide, ill check the health shops to see if they ave it. Thank you

ive been oil pulling now for 1 week, to treat gintivitus, my friend asked me how I was doing. I showed her my gums, she then said they look light pink now, but no change with the gaps from my gum to my teeth, I think the pure coconut oil must be doing something, as it is working on my gums, my gums have been really sore the past 2 days only were the gum has come away from my teeth, and really sore when I swallow, been swishing with salt and water, to settle this, I will continue to do oil pulling, just hope its good news at the end, bye for now.

I had my gum pockets measured in Jan. 2010 and again in April 2011. According to my dentist, pockets don't improve on their own - they just get deeper. Except for a 6 week break, I've been oil pulling in the time between the examinations. I haven't had any other gum treatment. I think the facts are pretty clear. The number of deep pockets has significantly reduced.
7 mm. Pockets: went from 2 to 0
6 mm. Pockets: went from 2 to 0
5 mm. Pockets: went from 9 to 4
4 mm. Pockets: went from 6 to 7
I no longer need expensive, unpleasant gum scaling. Big thumbs up!

I have to give oil pulling (OP) a big... no that's not even close... a gigantic YEA for gum disease. I was in fear of losing all of my teath to this nasty disease. However, I started OP about a week ago now and my gums and teeth feel great now. I have a dentist appointment in a few weeks to talk about the removal of my 2 lower molers. I'm not sure this will prevent removal or not. But, I'm sure it is going to prevent further removal of other teeth in the future. For once, I can't wait to go to the dentist. I know they will see the improvement as well. My teeth feel planted better, my gums don't bleed/hurt anymore, I don't have anymore tartar build up, food doesn't seem to be getting stuck inbetween my gum/teeth, my teeth are whiter, and my breath is always fresh now.
I tried everything before this. I was almost obscessed with brushing, flossing, and rinsing. I was even prescribed antibiotics many times. Nothing ever helped. It just got worse and worse and I was paying hundreds of dollars (even with insurance) a year on dental cleanings and maintenance.
So far, I have tried pulling with organic extra virgin coconut, sunflower, and olive oil. I haven't been able to find a non-toasted organic sesame oil. But, will keep looking. Anyway, I OP a little less than a tbsp of oil in the morning and before bed for about 20min.
The thing that works best for my gums is olive oil mixed with a drop of oil of oregano. However, the taste is almost unbearable. It makes me gag at times. So, I started to use coconut oil (which I was already using for it's many benefits anyway). This oil just feels terrific in my mouth... I absolutely love the taste, smell, and texture. Even my dog goes nuts for it and won't leave me alone when I am pulling with it. However, it doesn't seem to do the job as well. So, I have been switching off and on. Last night, I tried sunflower oil but it seems to get foamy and liquidy fast. Maybe that is a good thing? I will probably alternate with it from time to time.
I get the best night sleep after using coconut oil. But, my teeth and gums feel much better in the morning after using the oregano/olive oil mixture. So, I'm torn. However, I can say with out a doubt... next to exercising, oil pulling has been one of the most beneficial things I have done for my body. It has seemed to lift my spirits, cleared my senses, and brought new meaning to my life. Perhaps it's all because of the regenerized feeling in my mouth. I can't say for sure. But, I can breath better and feel better every morning. Actually my ablility to breath now seems to be a pleasant side affect. You see, both of my septums are deviated and for the first time ever, I can breath through my nose. For this reason alone, I will never stop oil pulling.
I also mix up a small vial of 3-4 drops of pure oil of oregano diluted in olive oil. I take this to work with me. I rub it on my gums whenever I feel the need. I was doing this for a week prior to oil pulling and it also works good. I was even using it straight from the dropper. But, the oil pulling really makes your entire mouth and body feel better. And I rarely have to use my little vial of OoO anymore.
I also have to say, i was a huge skeptic of all this. But, with desperation comes desperate measures. I will remember to not be so close minded in the future.
I just wanted to close by thanking everyone at this site. These are life changing remedies and tips. Thank you and bless you all!
Oil Pulling cured my Rheumatoid Arthritis in a matter of 3 days. Been using Safflower Oil. It helped so much. I sleep like a baby and pain free!! No more limping, dropping cups, hurting to drive, bend - I can open lids - pain free!! I had Rheumatoid Arthritis for over a year. I dont have joint stiffness anymore - but i can feel the joint damage (tightness when moving) In truth i am affraid to stop oil pulling - i dont want it to come back - because i have not stopped my health keeps improving i had gum disease (Periodontitis ), 8 year Chocoholic addiction,Dry Skin and Hair, A Sinus infection and Suffering with RA -gone!

Rarely irritable, minor back pain, no chocolate cravings, lil bit of a sweet tooth,lil to no cramps- such a big improvement - THANKU Earth Clinic!!!!!!!!
re: oil pulling-another satisfied customer!. I have been using oil pulling for about a month. A few days after I started I had a dental appt and showed early stages of gum disease (pockets that measured 6 in at least five places). They wanted me to have $1000 worth of scaling and root planing with antibiotics injected into the pockets. I told them I would think about it, knowing that I would keep oil pulling. I went to my follow up appt yesterday and I only had one pocket that was still a 6, the rest had decreased. The hygienist told me to keep doing what I'm doing so I confessed about the oil pulling which she had actually heard of and now plans to try after seeing the difference in my gums. She said anywhere she would poke them before they would bleed and now they are much better. I hope to come back later and say that my fibromyalgia is gone.
Many thanks to Lucille from Jersey City. I had sensitive gums and nerves for several months after having two dental procedures - removal of an impacted and decayed wisdom tooth -lower left,and placement of a crown on a molar above. I was very sensitive to cold especially but hot as well. Oil pulling with coconut oil just three times cured it 95%. It was hard to believe after it was so sensitive it virtually went away. I rarely feel anything anymore except with extreme temperatures and I see even that declining as the days go by.
Wow! I just read this cure [oil pulling] for the first time and decided to try it with my organic coconut oil. I still can't believe it but the chronic sensitivity I had in two of my teeth is gone! It's hard to tell which teeth were hurting! And my teeth feel different.
I just want to say this website is a lifesaver! I've battled Peridontal disease for years without much luck. It's painful and expensive. I've had a bad infection on the right side of my mouth and found this website. Last night I brushed my teeth with baking soda and swished with Peroxide (1 tsp. Peroxide to 2 tbsp. Water). LOL I was fascinated with the bubbling. So I woke up this morning to my alarm clock, that hasn't happened in over a month because the pain keeps me up at night. My mouth was still sensitive but the pain in my jaw and cheekbone is long gone!!! So I had read about oil pulling and decided to try that this morning and WOW is all I can say! I pulled with 100% Vegetable Oil because I wanted to see if it would really turn white and yep, it turned a milky white color and my teeth felt so clean :) I will continue this regimen until the infection is gone then I will drop rinsing with Peroxide so it doesn't do any damage to my tissue! I've read about the bee propolis but I'm not sure what to buy or exactly how to use it, so if anyone has any tips I would love to hear them!!!
I have no insurance and can't afford a dentist, so had to find a way to deal with tooth problems naturally. I've lost several fillings that occassionally cause infections. First thing I do is oil pulling with grapeseed, coconut or olive oil. Within a very short time the pain is down a fair amount, but of course the abscess is still there, filled with pus. Until that is emptied, the infection will remain. I use a dental instrument with an extremely sharp end and pierce the infected spot, then squeeze out as much of the pus as I can. This immediately cuts the pain down a whole lot more... now its just leftover soreness. I then do oil pulling again, followed by a good rinse of hydrogen peroxide. This cure works for an abscess every time.
PREVENTION: I haven't been to a dentist in over 12 years, despite the fact that I have huge holes in a few back molars due to missing fillings, and the cavities have NOT gotten worse. In fact I have fewer dental problems now. I no longer use commercial toothpastes. Obviously it would be best to have the regular mercury fillings removed and replaced... since I can't afford that procedure ... This is what I do instead...
I brush my teeth with BAKING SODA, followed by a HYDROGEN PEROXIDE rinse. Sometimes I start this with an OIL PULLING first. I often work on my teeth with just a toothbrush kind of absent-mindedly as I'm studying something on the internet. This pretty well removes most food particle and plaque. I recently bought one of those electric rechargeable toothbrushes, which works really well with the baking soda.
As long as I do these things regularly, I don't get any abscesses, cavities have not gotten any worse and may have actually gotten better, my teeth are whiter and feel cleaner, my gums are much healthier and all "pockets" have disappeared. It also prevents bad breath, and my tongue and gums are pink and healthy.
This has worked better for me than any dentist recommended procedure. I just wish I had known about it years ago. I'm absolutely sure I would have never gotten a cavity in the first place. Get rid of your commercial toothpaste and try this... you'll be glad you did!!!

Hi All, At my last visit to the dentist, I was told that the level 5 pockets which I have had for some time now show blood when poked, which means I need some antimicrobial injections to help save the gum from retrieving from the teeth more. I have been oil pulling daily for three years now and also use 3% hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash. I am surprised that this is a problem. I have used Bee Propolis in the past and I was unaware that it stained my teeth until the dental hygienist said I had a build-up of plaque in the back area and asked if I changed how I brush my teeth. It was a week or so later that I realized it was Bee Propolis stains not plaque so I stopped using it on my gums because of the problem and just added it to a blender drink until it was finished. I do not really want to get the injections as I would prefer to treat it naturally if possible. I have just changed the Oil I use to Pull to Castor Oil to see if that helps. Any suggestions/recommendations as to what I should do would be appreciated. Would the antimicrobial injections be ok to take? Maureen

I have periodontal disease and have found that brushing with oregano oil has really improved my gums and to stop tooth pain. I have stopped using toothpaste, now if I use it, I find it doesn't clean my teeth as well as the oil does and my mouth still feels "dirty". The taste does get some time to get used too. I started out by using only one drop, but now use 3 drops on my toothbrush. I bought a good quality oil, not the alcohol tincture. I first discovered brushing with oils when I researched the net and found a product that was quite expensive, I liked it, but didn't like the cost. I tried brushing with tea tree oil but found that to be very offensive, reminded me of brushing with pine sol. The oregano is quite strong, so try not to get it on the back of the throat, I'm so used to it now that I love brushing my teeth with it, then I rinse with an alcohol free mouthwash and that takes care of the oregano smell, my breath and mouth feel clean for hours, even through out the night, in the morning I awake with a clean feeling mouth.
I have been battling a gum infection for 2 months. After three courses of antibiotics, I gave up and tried Vitamin C 3000mg. This began to improve my gums, however, the infection persisted. My gums have been aching, sore, dark red, and inflammed.
I decided to try Oil of Oregano. I purchased a brand that was 60% diluted in extra virgin olive oil. Immediately, with a clean finger, I rubbed one drop of it over my gums, and another drop on the other side. Immediately the ache subsided. After 8 hours, my gums felt much improved. There is a slight tingly warm feeling upon initially applying which is normal for Oregano Oil. Before bedtime, I repeated this again, along with placing one drop beneath my tongue, holding it in place and washing it down with water.
I woke up with my mouth feeling more nomal than it has in weeks. Another additional benefit, it cleared my sinuses! They have been blocked.
Caution: Do not use Oil of Oregano undiluted. It is caustic and it WILL burn. That is why dilution in extra virgin olive oil is important.
I'm sharing this remedy in hopes it will help someone else stop suffering today!
