Fractionated coconut oil is simply coconut oil with the long-chain fatty acids removed. The medium-chain still remain, and the antioxidant content is actually greater due to the concentration.
If anything it would actually work better. And I would disagree with WTFGOD, oil pulling does work for improving oral health. Just be sure to brush your teeth afterwards to remove any residual oil.

Oil pulling doesn't work, just brush your teeth.


And floss if you want, even though i'm not sure how good the evidence for flossing is...although I doubt it can hurt.

I have to disagree, oil pulling certainly works.
Not sure what you have tried it for, but it helps reduce plaque build-up and even helps whiten teeth. As for actually pulling toxins out of your body through your mouth, I don't know... But as far as oral health, it works wonders!

Ditto - oil pulling does work, it's not the same as brushing, brushing and flossing are mechanical method of cleaning teeth.  Toothpaste itself would be a chemical method of cleaning teeth, as is oil pulling.
