hello. I've had a swelling at the base of my jaw inside under one of my molars, a tooth infection. I'm half way through a root canal treatment which I regret starting. I started oil pulling with sesame and coconut oil alternatively for several weeks. That helped shrink the lump infection in my mouth and get rid of any pain but still didnt get rid of the swelling. I got the idea to use magnesium chloride with a bit of DMSO. I'm using that now. The lump is rapidly shrinking. I use half teaspoon of magnesium chloride and a tiny amount of DMSO held in my mouth for 1 hour twice a day and will continue indefinately. I'm also using birch sugar xylitol to ward off tooth decay.

The Grow Youthful web page on Oil Pulling (at Ailments & Remedies, Remedies, Oil pulling) says that you can use most kinds of edible oil, so mustard oil may work. Please try it and then comment here again, as many readers will be interested to hear of your experience.

Can oil pulling with cold-pressed mustard oil remove tartar from my teeth?

I went to my dentist and he showed me the tartar on the back of the bottom of my front teeth. He is a good dentist but he stated that the tartar would go nowhere until they could get me in for full teeth cleaning. I decided to use oil pulling with coconut oil daily and added in a few nights here and there of small amounts of baking soda and vinegar brushing. In less than 2 weeks, almost all the front tartar has come off in chunks. It’s unbelievable. It worked quickly. I can’t wait for my cleaning in three weeks and to show him and tell him exactly what I did. There are so many other ways to treat illness and sickness. We have become reliant on some of these practitioners because that’s what we are told to do.

If oil pulling can loosen calculus on the outside of a tooth, then it probably also works on the inside of a tooth PROVIDED plenty of oil can swish over it.

I have oil pulled before and it does help for infections and pain. Does anyone know if it can loosen calcification deposits inside the root canal area?

So happy I'm not the only one who does not like doctors and dentists. For years I've done the recommended mouth wash, brushing, and flossing. After learning a lot about how chemical laden most of the items we use are I decided to do something different. Switched to fluoride-free toothpaste Toms, waste of time. I then read about oil pulling and tried it, didn't do it consistently though. After being diagnosed with periodontal disease, I really began to take things seriously. I quit smoking 2 months ago and started oil pulling at least once a day for 15 minutes with coconut oil. Switched to tea tree toothpaste with neem bark. I was flossing one day and thought my tooth chipped. How relieved I was to learn it was actually tartar coming off! OMG! It works! It really works! My gums look healthier as well. Unless you have significant issues I would definitely try this as opposed to listening to dentists. After all, if they tell you how to maintain your teeth they would not have a job.

It works! I have been oil pulling with coconut oil for about a week. I can only do it for 10 minutes at the most each time. Today after oil pulling I brushed gently and noticed what I thought was a large 2.5 mm piece of food. Upon closer inspection I saw it was the ENTIRE chunk of plaque behind my front bottom tooth. This is extremely exciting and validating! Even more importantly, I have found that oil pulling makes me feel just a ton healthier and happier. I also started to feel a cold and sinus infection last week and it never grew to full strength and died away in about two days. This method is insanely effective, and dentists just simply don't want to admit it works because they are afraid they will lose money.

I recently discovered gum disease for myself and my gums began to recede a lot. A dentist told me I needed a cleaning because I had tartar build up behind my teeth - I never looked back there. I decided to try oil pulling in the month wait to schedule my cleaning. I used a table spoon of coconut oil every day for about 15 minutes each time and flossed immediately after. I flossed 2-3 times a day and actually started to see chinks of tartar come off! I also noticed less plaque build up on my teeth and have less pain and sensitivity for the more I use it. If you have trouble remaining focused with the pulling for so long, try doing it while in the shower. It doesn't matter if I drool in there and I'm distracted so the time goes by faster.

I started oil pulling over a month ago and I was swishing all day long because I have severe gum disease and want to heal. But despite some progress it for me seemed very slow. I thought if calcium is out of my teeth there might be not enough magnesium intake. So I bought magnesium oil and I tried swishing with it and I was amazed. From my teeth come out big pieces of plaque. Now I combine oil pulling with olive oil and after that magnesium oil. The time for magnesium oil I prefer to be longer - about 40 mins. Today is second day that I do magnesium oil pull. And I am very satisfied. Sorry for my poor english. I hope somebody will found this helpful.
