Hey everyone. I just wanted to give an update. I have been OPing for almost a year, mainly with sesame oil.
Before I found out about oil pulling I had some problems with my gums. I had the beginning stages of gum disease as probably most people do. 2 different dentists told me this. I have not been to the dentist in probably 2 and a half years and just went last week. My teeth and gums are healthy. The dentist did not see any signs of gum disease. The only other problem I had was that I had a lot of plaque which was impacted below my gums. They had to do a deep cleaning to get it all out and I have to go back for another session in a month. That is just from not having my teeth cleaned every six months. The dentist said as long as I come in twice a year that will not happen.
In the last year since I started OPing I didn't do anything else different with my dental care. I have never really flossed, which was probably why I had the beginning stages of gum disease before. I attribute this to Oil Pulling.
