I tried Oil Pulling the other day (with Sesame Oil) and it actually caused a great deal of oral pain. I had fillings done 4 weeks prior so I don’t know if damaged the fillings or what it did but my teeth were extremely sensitive the rest of the day. I think I’ll talk to my dentist before trying again.
Regardless … the process was a bit lengthy … swish for 15-20 minutes?? I was hard pressed not to swallow any of it. My mouth did feel “cleaner” afterwards, almost like after a dental cleaning. I don’t doubt that it’s good for your health but I’ll need to get past the oral sensitivity it creates.
