i have been oilpulling since may 4 never missing a day. after a month i noticed stains on my teeth. fortuitously i had an appointment with the dentist and she cleaned it nice and shiny. now two weeks later, last night i noticed some stains have reappeared.
i use 1 tablespoon ofvirgin coconut oil all the time. sometimes mixed with 5-10 drops of cayenne pepper or 5-10 drops of oregano oil. i then swish with salted water for a fe wminutes and then clean my teeth with herbal toothpaste. at night i may swish using clay and water and then swish it with water.
btw i even switched toothpaste after the first discoloration was cleaned.
it could be the cayenne? Are you drinking tea or coffee? Those could be the culprits, as well. Have not used clay and water, but maybe this could be a culprit?
I personally brush with baking soda and peroxide (dang, forget to stop and get peroxide on way home from work!...tomorrow :D) and my teeth look fabulous. When I paid for a bleaching my teeth became (almost) as white as they are now. BUT the one thing I will mention (which I have before, a while back) is when I was a toddler, I was given large amounts of iron, in liquid form, due to serious anemic status. By doing this, it (somehow or other, seems it should have been just first teeth, not adult...oh well) stained one of my teeth. No matter how my cleanings went and even with the bleaching, it did not become unstained. It is no longer stained since I have begun brushing the way I do now.
I use the 3% peroxide, which you get from the drug store (aka pharmacy). The food grade is 35% and here in the States, it can be had at a HFS. It most likely can be had off the internet...that has many positive contributions, so sayeth a friend of mine who has used it.
Hi. I'm from oz too. I use 3% Faulding Hydrogen peroxide. You can buy it at Safeway, health section. Easy to miss, mainly stored on bottom shelf. Brown bottle, 200ml, with mustard colour label, and mustard colour cap. $3.25 at supermarket, a $1 more from chemist. I also use this on my face and hands. Makes skin very soft. Does not burn, no smell.
