A lot of patients ask me about coconut oil for uses ranging from cooking, to cosmetic self-care and recently oil pulling. Oil pulling is a term used for using an oil just as you would a mouthrinse. There are actually a lot of studies on this topic and people swear by the process.
Patients ask all the time about Crest's white strips. They are surprised when I recommend them. Most because they expect me to want to sell our office version but if an over the counter product meets your needs then by all means, more power to you!
