Oral hygiene is of a big importance. Many people are maybe not realizing that because the oral problems are all over the world. The reason to keep your mouth clean as possible is not only to prevent bad breath and yellowish teeth, but also to prevent the appearance of cavities, tartar and sores.
And the toothpastes and mouthwashes that you can find in the stores today might not provide results in some cases and then it is time to switch to natural medicines.
What can suppress harmful bacteria according by experts is enzyme-modified coconut oil. And a study was made in 2012 by Athlone Institute of Technology and there was discovered that coconut oil can remove Streptococcus, Candida Albicans, and Strep mutans (all of them are causers of oral health problems).
A good replacement for the chemical additives is enzyme-modified coconut oil according to Dr. Damien Brady (the leader of the study). This study has not still reached conclusive level that it could be added into health products but that is not stopping people to use coconut oil as mouthwash. Enzyme-modified oilwill provide better effects than unaltered oil.
Oil pulling is the practice of using coconut oil for oral health. What it actually means is swishing a tablespoon of the oil in your mouth cavity for 10 to 20 minutes in order to eliminate the harmful bacteria as much as possible. This method is not a new method because Dentistry IQ claims that ir originates from millennia-old ayurvedic medicine.
People that are starting with using this method first have problems with adjusting the right amount of oil in the mouth, but after a couple of times you will be able to adjust the amount to have the best effect possible. Do not spit the oil in the sink, spit it in the trash. After the oil pulling you should rinse your mouth because there might be some leftover bacteria. Just you need to understand that this method is not replacing the regular tooth-brushing method.
