We use coconut oil for a multitude of reasons. We encourage our patients to oil pull with coconut oil. This is important for oral health because vitamins and minerals in the coconut oil are absorbed, while pathogenic microbes are bound up in the oil and ultimately removed from the mouth. The coconut oil also nourishes the gums and teeth, prevents the growth of bacteria and also relieves pain and inflammation.
We also use coconut oil in the dental chair to brush your teeth. You can expect us to ask you what essential oil you prefer for flavor.

Peppermint oil also inhibits dental plaque formation and has therapeutic benefits for treating periodontitis, gingivitis and halitosis. We use orange essential for its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties and points to the germicidal properties of clove oil. (More Information Coming Soon)
