7. Oil Pulling

oil pulling

Oil pulling is an age-old practice that supports oral health by removing harmful bacteria from your mouth. It helps keep your mouth moist and prevent dry mouth, a common problem among denture users. It evens helps eliminate bad breath and reduce gum swelling.

  1. Put 1 tablespoon of cold-pressed vegetable oil like sesame oil in your mouth. Make sure not to wear your dentures while doing this.
  2. Swish it around your mouth thoroughly for 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Spit it out and rinse your mouth with warm water.
  4. Repeat the process daily, in the morning before eating anything.

You can also do oil pulling with extra-virgin coconut oil.


Note: Do not gargle or swallow the oil.

8. Sage

Irritated or inflamed gums due to dentures can also be treated with sage. Its anti-inflammatory property helps reduce gum pain and swelling.

This antimicrobial herb is also toxic to harmful organisms that cause bad breath and impact your oral health.

  • Boil 1 tablespoon of dried sage in 1 cup of water. Strain and allow it to cool. Use the water to gargle 2 times daily until the swelling and pain are gone.
  • Also, chew a few fresh sage leaves 2 or 3 times a day to help ease pain and reduce gum swelling.
