Should I Remove Dentures Before Pulling?

Posted by Karen on 08/09/2007

I keep checking the site but have not seen a response to this question. I would really appreciate your input. Question: Should dentures be removed to do oil pulling? I have a full plate on the top and a partial plate on the bottom (only four natural teeth on the bottom). Thank You, Karen

It is best to be remove, however, oil works the same way as eating food and can be done even if they are not removed. However, they should still be rinsed with a good mouthwash, with or without the dentures.

I just recently asked the same question. Should I remove dentures while OP.

Please consider. Dentures have a lot of places for bacteria to hide. I have tried OP with and without. The dentures hold the oil on the surface of your gums while killing bacteria on your dentures.
