    Has anyone tried oil pulling?  If so, why did you try it, and did it have any effect?

    I have serious gum loss in just ONE tooth!  All my other gums are perfect, and I've never even had a cavity!  I am so aggravated, and willing to try anything to fix it.  I am scared of gum surgery!

    Ah, sedation dentistry... thank goodness!  I would have to request "completely knocked out" dentistry smile  Oil pulling is this thing where you swish with sesame or sunflower oil for 15 min a day, it's supposed to pull toxins from your mouth.  You can also add oregano oil (a few drops) which is a good antibiotic.  I'm not sure if it works but I'm sure swishing with oregano oil would be helpful!
