It's called oil pulling and there have been threads on here before regarding this topic. I personally believe it has tremendous benefits - not only for your teeth but for your health in general, especially when using coconut oil, but beware, many people will say it's snake oil, bunk, etc.
No, but I use the coconut oil for moisturizer and swishing in my mouth to remove toxins for three minutes. I have not cooked with it yet but will soon. I am sold on this working for the mouth. My daughter often had inflamed very red gums and now they are a pretty pink and as healthy as can be after one week of using the coconut oil. She also suffered from very sensitive gums and they would bleed when she brushed her teeth but not anymore, so seeing that made me a believer, so I am now swishing coconut oil.
