Having a salt water rinse to wash out your mouth is very useful for many different reasons. If you have a sore throat, sores on your gums or anything of that nature using salt water to rinse you mouth out is a great option for these things. Here at Draper Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we strive to be one of the best dental offices in Albemarle, North Carolina and today we are going to be discussing how salt water rinse can help your mouth
Even though salt water rinse doesn’t take the place of modern day dental products but it is very commonly used as a supportive resource for everyone to use. Here are some things that you can use the salt water rinse on.
· Cuts in your mouth.
· Sores on your gums or inner jaws and cheeks.
· If you see bleeding in your gums.
Salt water rinse creates an isotonic environment in your mouth in which bacteria struggle to survive and the salt water kills all the sounding bacteria and disinfects your mouth as you swish it around in your mouth. Bacteria and gems love to reside in an acidic environment and using the salt water rinse can make it very difficult for it to breed and stay alive.
Now that you know what you can use the salt water rinse on we are now going to tell you how to make it. It is extremely easy to make. All you have to do is get a cup of warm water (preferably tap water) and then add ½ teaspoon of salt to the cup of warm water. Then just stir it around until all of it dissolves and you are done.
