"I had a really bad infection in my mouth, says Brittany. It was so painful that I could not sleep. Pain medication helped temporarily. I was sure that I needed another root canal.
After hearing about oil pulling I decided to give it a try before going to the dentist. I began oil pulling three times a day
. By the very next day the pain was gone! No soreness, nothing.
I was shocked. I continue to oil pull and my teeth are whiter and healthier looking then they have ever been. My gums have stopped bleeding, they used to bleed after every brushing. They are no longer receding and my teeth feel tighter.
On my last visit to the dentist he was amazed at how much better my teeth and gums looked. He told me to continue to do whatever I was doing.
