    I do this. I noticed my teeth were whiter almost immediately. I used olive oil because it is what was in my house. I hear sesame oil is the preferred oil though.

    This it quack advice. As a dental professional I can assure you this is NOT doing anything to help you other than to waste 20 minutes of your time. I would love to see the medical literature supporting this as testing in officw using a plaque index guide shows absolutely no removal of plaque via this process.
