Yes. Get some good quality coconut oil. I use a much smaller amount than most sites recommend. I use a regular spoonful. Work it around in your mouth WITHOUT SWALLOWING for 10-20 minutes then spit it in the trash (not the sink or toilet as the oil will clog your plumbing). Rinse your mouth with water and brush your teeth. Your teeth and gums will look and feel much cleaner and whiter.

I've used a few different brands. My personal favorite is Barlean's.

This was extremely helpful for me in relieving the pain of receding gums and dental sensitivity. I highly recommend oil pulling! (I used coconut oil). My dentist said you can add a drop of clove oil - it numbs your mouth like anesthetic. But its so strong, you need to melt the coconut oil first to mix in the clove. Taking it alone is painfully numbing!

tip: add a drop or two of essential oil...really helps!

I use tea tree oil in mine.

FYI - you may not be able to do it for more than a few minutes at first...and slowly build up to 10 minutes.

I think my jaw muscles are weaker because of lyme...maybe that's why I could only do a few minutes at first.
