Dental Plaque Removal at Home Technique

by Family Healer on June 3, 2011

Dentists will tell you only they can harshly remove dental plaque in their dental office. it’s their education and their business to tell you this. What if I told you I found a way to remove dental plaque and it is free? Here is my technique:

Oil pulling. Oil pulling 20 minutes a day with virgin coconut oil. Every session you do an oil pulling immediately after spitting the oil, WITHOUT gargling, you wipe all your teeth with a towel. Wipe the top, wipe the outer and the inner teeth. Wipe especially on the plaque covered areas. Do this every day.

In less than a month and depending on how thick the dental plaque is and how consistent you are, the plaque will go away. Wiped out of existence.

Tooth brushes suck. I don’t brush my teeth. Oil pulling gives better results.

Why does oil pulling work?  The FAT in the virgin coconut oil dissolves and weakens the plaque.  Fat is the answer.

Oil pulling with virgin coconut oil is better than tooth brushing with tooth paste because:

1. Bristles can scratch gums and tooth enamel.

2. Toothpaste is not edible, may be poisonous.

3. Virgin coconut oil is nutritious and safe even if you swallow or eat or put on your skin.

Yes, oil pulling with organic virgin coconut oil (VCO) saved me lots of time on the dental chair and money. Two dentists and a doctor of metabollic medicine diagnosed me with periodontal gum disease (the advanced form of gingivitis which is characterized by gums that bleed easily). I even had panoramic x-rays of my dentition and one of the dentists said my condition is almost stage 4 and requires gum surgery all over (up, down, left, right). To help remedy the problem naturally, I did oil pulling (once, twice or 3x/day) and ate 2 raw fertilized eggs each for breakfast and dinner (so 4 raw chicken/duck eggs/day). After about a month after the second dentist who diagnosed me as almost stage 4 and after several sessions of deep scaling in her clinic (removing the plaque from my teeth and the teeth area beneath the ridge of the gums), she said that my gums are much, much improved and I don’t need gum surgery anymore. So I continue to do oil pulling daily since March 2009. My husband joined me in this healthy habit too so we do it every morning.

I praise God for this knowledge on oil pulling from the book “Oil Pulling Therapy” by Dr. Bruce Fife. Truly, the principle behind it is scientific, simple, logical and can easily be grasped or understood like common sense. I strongly encourage anybody to do oil pulling as both a preventive measure and/or natural remedy for viral. bacterial and fungal infections especially by using locally made VCO which has anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.

I’ve also heard a testimony from a Christian missionary friend of mine where a child who stayed in their house had toothache for a week or two and when they suggested oil pulling, the pain stopped right after the child did it.

“A man’s words and actions should be as one.” You seem to live that.

Oil pulling is not new to me but plenty of other articles you have written have been enlightening. You’re a true samaritan. Keep up your awesome writing. I’ve read Aajonus’s Primal Diet story but I like your site more for its fresh and free content.

Our family have also been Oil Pulling since June this year.

Our story is here:

It appears that the low-fat-high-carbohydrate diet that the government has everybody on  (almost everybody) is benefiting the dentists as well as the doctors.

A month ago I purchased a professional-style plaque scraper and I went to work scraping my plaque like I had seen my dental hygienists do for decades. Even though I had been to the hygienist less than a month earlier, some of my plaque deposits were really thick. I came to the conclusion that my hygienists had only been hitting the high spots. Within a week of starting with the plaque scraper, I came across your website and I started using coconut oil. I soon abandoned the plaque scraper. There was no plaque to scrape. (This was about the time of my previous post.) It will be a long time before I visit another dental hygienist.

I’m a hygienist and have seem periodontal disease in person many times and I can tell you with certainty that there is not any amount of good oil that is going to cure periodontal disease.
I’m not disputing that coconut oil may be good and helpful but I’m with Jackie Dellota you need to have a good deep scaling first and then help it with other means. I have seem patients in stage 4 of periodontal disease too that we thought for sure will need periodontal surgery after deep scaling but proved me wrong, and these people did it only by being very dedicated following my instructions of home care. No special toothpaste or mouth wash. Many times I tell my patients that toothpaste is over rated and that if they just brush with water and floss correctly they will never have a problem.
I’m also very health conscious; I grow a organic garden, drink only raw milk, make my own butter kind of person. And I’m probably the only hygienist in town that is against fluoride in our water but I had to speak out because statements like the ones I just read here can be hurtful to people. No any kind of oil is going to get under your gums where calculus (tartar) gets. Plaque is the young tartar and is soft and can be removed with just a brush and floss but not tartar, it has to be scale out because if not it will destroy the bone around your teeth and your teeth will become loose. Trust me on this one!

Yes, I had my plaque removed by a biological dentist.

After much Internet searching I came upon your Website, because I have had on-going issues with plaque, etc. I have also invested quite a bit of money with traditional Dentists that for the most part did me more harm than good. There are natural protocols to help heal and even eliminate plague leading to peridontal disease. There are indigenous peoples and groups throughout the world with immaculate gums and teeth–none of whom ever saw the inside of a Dentist office or sat in a Hygenist chair! I would encourage people to read books like “Cure Tooth Decay” by Ramiel Nagel and others who are dedicated to natural/holistic means of helping the body heal/strengthen/reverse via scientifically proven self-administered dental practices. Also, check out the work of Dr. Weston Price. Dentistry in my opinion has become a monopoly of trained doctors whose job it is to drain as much money out of you as possible; to convince you that your case is hopeless and only a root canal, tooth extraction, deep scaling, etc. is the answer. Procedures that are at best short-lived and don’t bring about positive healing. I believe that’s why so many people are eager to find alternative methods that can deliver powerful results over time(if approached with persistence) instead of the extreme procedures and harmful effects that are played out in Dental offices across the country. I am not here to bash Dentists, just to encourage people to investigate and discover “other” viable ways to address your dental maladies. One of the best and most irrefutable ways to bring about lasting results is through diet.
period! Think. Research. Read. Grow in wisdom.
