Warm salty rinses are good for your gums!
Making a salt water-based mouth rinse is not just easy and cost-effective but it’s also known for its natural healing properties.
Just add ½ teaspoon of salt to a cup of warm water. You can use this to:
- Soothe mouth sores
- For pain relief after tooth extraction
- Reduce discomfort from a sore throat or tongue
It also aids the healing process by reducing inflammation and bacteria in the mouth.
Although there are benefits to using a salt water-based mouth rinse, it shouldn’t replace your daily oral hygiene routine.
Taking good care of your teeth starts with brushing twice a day and flossing which removes plaque, bacteria, and food particles that can get stuck between the teeth
