Will I Lose My Fillings?

Posted by Jean (Fairfax, VA)

Can you tell me how long a person would have to be doing the oil pulling for it to possibly cause mercury fillings to fall out.....and how does it do that, does it cause the whole filling to just fall out of your tooth, or is there a gradual pulling out of the metal? Is this really very likely, or just something that "might" happen? Thanks so much. Jean

Actually this is quite a rare occurence. It is only when you already have a loose filling prior to the oil pulling that it would come loose. Rarely with oil pulling alone will a filling come loose.
