WHAT IS IT:
Oil pulling is an ancient, Indian folk remedy claimed to whiten your teeth, freshen your breath and greatly improve your oral health.

WHAT YOU NEED:
Coconut oil.
You can can also get the same bacteria-fighting benefits with sesame or sunflower oil but coconut oil has the added benefit of lauric acid, which is well-known for its anti-microbial agents. A recent study found that coconut oil may also help prevent tooth decay.

HOW TO DO IT:
First, you’re gonna want to take about a fingertip full of coconut oil.

Secondly, put the oil in your mouth and swish it around for 30 minutes to an hour (5-10 minutes a day is good to start with, slowly build your way up to 30 minutes a day). It’s going to taste like shit at first but eventually it’ll melt and lose its flavor. Stick with this because the longer you do it the better the results.

Finally, once you’ve done it for a good amount of time, spit it out in the garbage or outside cause it will clog your sink.
After doing it for a couple of weeks, you should notice significantly whiter and healthier teeth.

EXPERT TIP:
"Coconut and sunflower oil aren't the only oils with dental health benefits. For irritated, inflamed gums, rub a little vitamin E oil directly on the surface. It's rich in antioxidants easily absorbed, and helps regenerate healthy gum tissue." -- Jessica Emery, DMD
