Will Sukime’s NEW Tooth & Gum Oil With Moringa Replace Your Toothpaste & Your Oil Pulling?
Moringa Oil For Oral Health – Brushing & Pulling All In One Solution
Now you have heard about the numerous health benefits found in moringa oil, including its extraordinary concentration of vitamins and minerals. Moringa seed oil extract are commonly used in many different products (like Sukime Face Serum), cleansers, lotions, shampoos, beverages and cooking oils, among others.
Moringa Oil also has many benefits found in oral health, and is even used in certain products for the teeth and gums.
Oral care is ready for a change and Sukime’s Tooth & Gum Oil is leading the way. Moringa oil has various antibacterial qualities that lend themselves well to good oral health. It can also be used to treat oral inflammations, infections and abscesses, because of the anti-inflammatory agents found in high doses in moringa leaves. Some of the anti-inflammatory substances found in moringa oil include quercetin (a flavonoid also known for its ability to neutralize free radicals), caffeoylquinic acid; and 34 other natural anti-inflammatory agents.
As part of your oral care ritual, you could also use it while gargling to treat a sore throat. You might also decide to our Tooth & Gum Oil to treat a tooth infection or canker sore. Use our Tooth & Gum Oil in place of your toothpaste to help keep your teeth and gums in pristine condition. If you wish to make your teeth more white, add some tumeric powder, bi-carbonate or bamboo charcoal to your brush when using the oil.
Moringa is also known for its high levels of calcium. Therefore, even when it’s not used in products specifically geared toward oral health, it still goes a long way toward enhancing the strength and overall health of your teeth.
What Are The Oral Health Benefits Of Oil Pulling ?
1. Can Kill Harmful Bacteria in Your Mouth
Several studies have shown that oil pulling could help reduce the number of harmful bacteria in the mouth.
In one two-week study, 20 children either used a standard mouthwash or did oil pulling with sesame oil for 10 minutes daily.
After just one week, both the mouthwash and oil pulling significantly reduced the number of harmful bacteria found in the saliva and plaque (7Trusted Source).
A recent study found similar results. It had 60 participants rinse their mouths using either mouthwash, water or coconut oil for two weeks. Both mouthwash and coconut oil were found to reduce the number of bacteria found in saliva (8Trusted Source).
Decreasing the number of bacteria in the mouth can help support proper oral hygiene and prevent some conditions.
2. Could Help Reduce Bad Breath
Halitosis, also known as bad breath, is a condition that affects an estimated 50% of the population.
Some of the most common causes include infection, gum disease, poor oral hygiene and tongue coating, which is when bacteria become trapped on the tongue (9Trusted Source).
Treatment typically includes the removal of the bacteria, either through brushing or by using an antiseptic mouthwash like chlorhexidine (10Trusted Source).
Interestingly, one study found that oil pulling was as effective as chlorhexidine at reducing bad breath.
In that study, 20 children rinsed with either chlorhexidine or sesame oil, both of which caused a significant decrease in levels of the microorganisms known to contribute to bad breath (11Trusted Source).
Though more research is needed, oil pulling may be used as a natural alternative to reduce bad breath and could be as effective as traditional treatments.
3. May Help Prevent Cavities
Cavities are a common problem that stems from tooth decay.
Poor oral hygiene, eating too much sugar and a buildup of bacteria can all cause tooth decay, which leads to the formation of holes in the teeth known as cavities.
Plaque can also cause cavities. Plaque forms a coating on teeth and is comprised of bacteria, saliva and food particles. The bacteria begin to break down the food particles, forming an acid that destroys tooth enamel and causes tooth decay (4Trusted Source).
Several studies have found that oil pulling can help reduce the number of bacteria in the mouth, preventing tooth decay.
Decreasing these strains of bacteria through oil pulling could help prevent tooth decay and reduce the risk of cavity formation.
4. Seems to Reduce Inflammation and Improve Gum Health
Gingivitis is a type of gum disease marked by red, swollen gums that bleed easily.
The bacteria found in plaque are a major cause of gingivitis, as they can cause bleeding and inflammation in the gums (12Trusted Source).
Fortunately, oil pulling may be an effective remedy to improve gum health and reduce inflammation.
It works primarily by decreasing the harmful bacteria and plaque in the mouth that contribute to gum disease, such as Streptococcus mutans.
Using certain oils with anti-inflammatory properties like coconut oil may also aid by reducing the inflammation associated with gum disease (13Trusted Source).
In one study, 60 participants with gingivitis began oil pulling with coconut oil for 30 days. After one week, they had reduced amounts of plaque and showed an improvement in gum health (14Trusted Source).
Another study in 20 boys with gingivitis compared the effectiveness of oil pulling with sesame oil and a standard mouthwash.
Both groups showed a decrease in plaque, an improvement in gingivitis and a reduction in the number of harmful bacteria in the mouth (15Trusted Source).
While more evidence is needed, these findings suggest that oil pulling may be an effective supplementary treatment to prevent plaque formation and promote healthy gums.
The Bottom Line
Some studies suggest that oil pulling may decrease harmful bacteria in your mouth, prevent plaque formation and improve both gum health and oral hygiene.
Additionally, note that it should not be used in place of traditional oral hygiene practices, such as brushing your teeth, flossing, getting routine cleanings and consulting your dentist regarding any oral hygiene problems.
