Before we start with this article, I would like to ask you a simple question – do you know what’s oil pulling? Oil pulling or also known as “gundusha” or “kavala” is an ancient Ayuverdic dental technique which involves swishing a tablespoon of oil in the mouth on an empty stomach for 15-20 minutes. Sounds weird, right? Yes, it is – but you should know that this technique is extremely effective. Just take a look at the article below and find out more about this.

As we said, this is very useful and effective way to cleanse your body from all harmful toxins and improve your oral health. This technique is also very beneficial for detoxifying the teeth and gums and for whitening your teeth at the same time. Note: many people around the world have tried this technique and they claim that it helps in treating skin conditions, arthritis, headaches, asthma, infections, hormonal imbalance, etc.

How to perform the technique?

Here’s what you need to do – first of all, you should know that oil pulling is a very simple technique. You just have to put a 2-3 teaspoons of vegetable oil (coconut, sesame, olive oil) in your mouth and swish it around for about 20 minutes. Then, spit it out and wash your mouth with water. If you want to get the best results, do the procedure in the morning on an empty stomach, or in the evening before going to bed.

Note: you may find it a bit difficult at first, but you`ll get used to it after a few minutes. Repeat the procedure regularly and you will have whiter and brighter teeth after just one week.

How this works:

Well, oil pulling works by cleaning (detoxifying) the oral cavity in a similar way that soap cleans dirty dishes. It literally sucks the dirt (toxins) out of your mouth and creates a clean, antiseptic oral environment that contributes to the proper flow of dental liquid that is needed to prevent cavities and disease.

These are the most important benefits of oil pulling with coconut oil for your dental health:

  • whitens teeth
  • has impressive effects for the entire oral cavity
  • Fights bacteria and gum infections
  • breaks through the plaque
  • prevents cavities
