My wife thinks I am nuts, but I got her to pull last week. She is in constant oral pain, has very opaque teeth and is plagued with pockets and requires scaling every six months.
I finally got her to brush with my Sea Salt / soda / clay mixture every morning.
In addition, she has pulled three days out of five and has said her pain and swelling is almost non-existant; confirmed by her dentist yesterday (it seems she goes to him twice a month. Now I just need her to be consistent.
