Authors

Abstract

Oil pulling generates antioxidants which damage the cell wall of microorganisms and kill them. These oils will attract the lipid layer of bacterial cell membranes and pulled to the oil. Furthermore, teeth become whiter; breath becomes fresher; and oral cavity muscles and jaws become stronger with excellent achievement of oral hygiene. Oil pulling prevents dental caries, gingivitis, oral candidiasis, and periodontitis from occurring, helps to reduce tooth pain, fixes mobile teeth, and achieves vigorous oral hygiene. Oil pulling when practiced regularly is believed to freshen and stimulate the mind and strengthen the senses. It is also beneficial in sore throat, dry face, impaired vision, taste loss, and anorexia. It also helps in improvement of conditions such as headaches, migraines, diabetes mellitus, asthma, and acne. AIM: The aim is to analyse about the awareness among dental practitioners on oil pulling.
