How Does Oil Pulling Whiten Your Teeth?

Recently, oil pulling has become more popular than ever. Trust us, are we ever thankful for that fact! But, all business aside, we’re so excited for more of you guys to experience the wonderful benefits of oil pulling. 


Oil pulling comes with a long list of health benefits as you may already know, but today we are going to focus on only one of those benefits, which is probably the most well known of them all: whiter teeth. Whiter teeth is one of the many benefits of Coco Rinse and is probably one of the first you will notice once you start oil pulling.


How Exactly Does Oil Pulling Whiten Your Teeth?


So, how exactly does oil pulling make your teeth whiter? Well, it’s actually pretty straightforward. Oil pulling works to cut down on plaque and tartar build up on teeth. You know, that gross film you can feel sitting on your teeth sometimes? The gunk that takes your dental hygienist a full hour to scrape off your teeth? Yup, that’s the stuff. Plaque and tartar build up are a few of the biggest factors that can make your teeth appear more yellow. 


Oil Pulling Cuts Down on Plaque and Tartar Build-Up


Enter oil pulling.  In case you didn’t know this, plaque and tartar build up is actually fat soluble, not water soluble. Therefore, when you take a spoonful of coconut oil and swirl it around in your mouth for 20 minutes, it gives the oil time to break down the plaque and tartar on your teeth. It will soften up the build up making it easier to remove when followed by your regular brushing and flossing.


The End Result


With less plaque and tartar build-up on your teeth, your teeth will feel cleaner, smoother, and will be brighter and whiter in no time! Makes sense doesn’t it? So, what are you waiting for? Add oil pulling to your daily oral health routine today. Trust us, your smile will thank you!
