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.

A few weeks ago I began experiencing bleeding gums when flossing along with frequently painful gums It became very difficult to eat with certain foods triggering pain. The pain was like toothache that was either dull and constant or so severe I felt nauseated. I had been using Dentarome Ultra and Thieves Dental Floss which were defintely helping but as my teeth are very close together, regular flossing is not enough for me.

I need to do more for my gums, so my regime now includes brushing twice a day with Dentarome Ultra, and adding a drop of Thieves oil to my toothpaste. Rinsing my mouth with Thieves Fresh Essence Mouth Wash which I sloosh around my mouth and teeth for at least 5 minutes. The Thieves oil has made a huge difference to my gums. The bleeding has stopped, the pain is gradually easing and it's becoming easier for me to eat.

When I had severe tooth and gum pain, I used Clove oil for it's pain numbing effect. (Try to keep it off skin as it can be irritating). I highly recommend the use of a water flosser for the most efficient means of removing trapped food between teeth and around the gumline, if you don't find flossing adequate.

To help accelerate my gum healing, I've also begun massaging Myrrh oil around my gums. Thank goodness for Young Living products.

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: dental,gums — "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. Clove gel might possess a potential to replace benzocaine as a topical [anesthetic] agent before needle insertion."Link
