Why Dentists Don’t Want to Tell You This? An Easy Way to Fight Cavities With Coconut Oil at Home!

Currently, in the times we’re living in, oral problems are very frequent among the worldwide population. Hence, besides maintaining proper oral hygiene to prevent bad breath and yellowish teeth, it’s crucial to maintain the mouth as clean as possible in order to prevent the occurrence of sores, cavities, or tartar.

However, there are cases when toothpastes and mouthwashes don’t suffice. When this occurs, one can always turn to natural medicines. Namely, according to a 2012 study by the Athlone Institute of Technology, enzyme-modified coconut oil has the power to suppress harmful bacteria. The study also showed that coconut oil was very beneficial in removing Streptococcus, Candida Albicans, and Strep mutans, known causers of oral health issues.


Dr. Damien Brady, who led the researchers, stated that including enzyme-modified coconut oil to dental hygiene products is a good alternative for chemical additives. Nonetheless, as the study hasn’t yet reached a conclusive level so that it could be included into health products, people use regular coconut oil as a mouthwash. Although unaltered oil might not be as effective as the enzyme-modified one, it’s still very beneficial, without any side effects.
