OP, OP, OP with compliant oils ... I am using Sesame oil at the moment ... but I am starting to think that even if we had no oil, I am now so used to that swirling around in my mouth time, that I will do this whether I had oil or not ... even with water!!!
But, yes, I also had some receding gums issues 3 years ago when I started OP and now, no cavities and no gum issues at all.
Of course 3 years of compliance must have helped too!!!

When using peroxide, get the right amount. Too strong is harmful to tissues, which I found out with my throat. It was sensitive for several years after using too strong a solution(recommended by a relative)! Yes, vitamin C is very useful for this & is very cheap.
Of course, compliancy helps just about everything!

I had very bad gums for a while about 8 years ago, bleeding, large pockets, etc. I bought an electric toothbrush like a Sonicare. Mine's a different brand that my dentist recommended at the time but she now recommends the Sonicare. I brush for the whole time 2x/day. I use the soft picks, then floss, then use the rubber tip every single night without fail. The pockets around my teeth have virtually disappeared. I haven't had bleeding gums in years. I was using a CoQ10 toothpaste. I've run out and lately have been using a presciption toothpaste in the evening and a whitener or tea tree toothpaste in the morning. The only thing I've heard about oil pulling is that it can loosen up fillings and crowns. I've been undergoing implants on 2 lower molars and it's been quite the investment so I can't take any chances.
