This ancient Ayurvedic dental technique is known as oil pulling or also as “gundusha” or “kavala” and involves swishing a tablespoon of oil in the mouth for 15-20 minutes, and it is very important to do this on an empty stomach.
It will clean the toxins from the body and will help in improving the oral and overall health. Also, it is very effective for whitening the teeth and detoxifying the teeth and gums at the same time.
Most of the people who used this technique claim that it helps in treating arthritis, asthma, infections, headaches, hormonal imbalance and skin conditions.
How to perform the technique?
It is a really simple technique. Just put a couple teaspoons of vegetable oil (coconut, sesame, olive oil) in your mouth and swish it for 20 minutes. Spit it out and wash the mouth with water.
Do the procedure every morning and on an empty stomach, or in the evening before going to bed, in order to get the best results.
Put 1-2 teaspoons of the vegetable oil you will choose, in the mouth and swish for 20 minutes. The oil will become milky and thicker during the swishing, and when you spit it out it will be creamy white.
Wash your mouth with warm water and brush the teeth as you usually do.
At first, maybe it will be a bit difficult for you, but after a few minutes, you will get used to it. Repeat the procedure regularly and after just one week your teeth will be whiter and brighter.
