The method is not entirely new. Teeth whitening with oils has been known under the name of " oil pulling " for some years - maybe you have even heard of it. You can utilize any type of grease for oil pulling. Coconut oil is currently particularly popular.

Coconut oil is not only said to remove discoloration on the teeth but is also said to have an antibacterial effect. The reason for this is lauric acid, which is contained in the pulp. For example, lauric acid helps with bad breath, bleeding gums and is even said to prevent tooth decay. However, there is no study that fully demonstrates its effectiveness against bacteria. But just because of the whitening effect, I really wanted to test the coconut oil.
