Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

My teeth had become uncomfortably sensitive on one side of my mouth. I started putting 1 drop of Wintergreen on my Thieves Dentarome Ultra toothpaste every time I brushed my teeth.

I could not tell a difference until 2 weeks had passed. Then the sensitivity was suddenly gone. Even though the sensitivity was gone, I continued to use the Wintergreen on my teeth for a while, since I have read that Wintergreen is very good for your teeth.

Later, I had a few mild relapses of a little sensitivity, when I stopped using the Wintergreen. Since then I had read that the Thieves Dentarome toothpaste is better for people with sensitive teeth, so I realized that the Thieves Dentarome Ultra toothpaste was just too strong for my sensitive teeth.

After I started brushing with the Thieves Dentarome toothpaste and began using Wintergreen again, I did not have any more problems.

Several months later, my teeth began to feel sensitive again, even though I was using the Wintergreen, so this time I tried Myrrh. I just rubbed 1 drop of Myrrh on my bottom gums and teeth and rubbed 1 drop on my top gums and teeth. That one application took care of the sensitivity for several months.

After about 6 months, my teeth began to feel sensitive yet again and so I used the Myrrh one time, like before and the effects lasted about the same length of time again. Myrrh is now my go to oil for sensitive teeth.

Study 2: "Oil pulling therapy has been equally effective like chlorhexidine on halitosis and organisms, associated with halitosis." Study 3: "The oil pulling therapy showed a reduction in the plaque index, modified gingival scores, and total colony count of aerobic microorganisms in the plaque of adolescents with plaque-induced gingivitis." Study 4: "Oil pulling can be used as an effective preventive adjunct in maintaining and improving oral health." Study 5: "The myth that the effect of oil-pulling therapy on oral health was just a placebo effect has been broken, and there are clear indications of possible saponification and emulsification process, which enhances its mechanical cleaning action."Link
2.Associated topics: sensitive-teeth,tooth-/-teeth — "Both clove and benzocaine gels had significantly lower mean pain scores than placebos. No significant difference was observed between clove and benzocaine regarding pain scores.
