Should You Gargle With Saltwater Daily?

Posted on 11/9/2020 by Langtree Dental Associates
Gargling with salt water is a tested natural remedy for ailments. You should use salt water because it has many medical values for both adults and children. The saltwater solution has both antibacterial and anti-inflammation properties. It can help eliminate bad breath, relieve toothaches, ease sore throats, heal canker sores, and clear mucus. It can also prevent upper respiratory tract infection, treat dry throat, reduce tonsillitis, protect the enamel, and relieve nasal congestion. How To Gargle With Salt Water Properly Fill your cup with warm water and add half a teaspoon of salt. Stir the solution to dissolve the salt. Take a sip of the salt water, then tilt your head backward and tart gaggling the solution near the back of your throat for 30 seconds. Rinse your teeth and gum before you spit it out. Repeat the same procedure until you finish your saltwater, and you can do it twice a day for maximum effectiveness. Precautions When using a saltwater solution at home, you should take some of the following precautions. Ensure that the water is not hot to avoid mouth burns, and if you feel the water is too salty, you should add more water to dilute it. The salt has to dissolve entirely because undissolved salt particles grate along the throat lining can end up causing more pain. Risks Gaggling too much saltwater will raise plasma and sodium levels in your body, leading to dehydration. Children will often swallow the saltwater accidentally, and too much of it is harmful because excessive intake of sodium puts them at risk of developing cardiovascular diseases. Saltwater is acidic, and gaggling it every day can soften the teeth enamel and gums. Therefore, you can't gargle salty water daily Also, people with special medical conditions such as those with high blood pressure should take extra precaution or simply look for other alternatives they can use.
