4 benefits of brushing your teeth with a salt solution

Salt solution in a glass 

Common salt, also known as sodium chloride, is commonly used in the kitchen to make our meals taste better. 

It is also used in preserving foods, soothing a sting and removing stains from clothes. 

However, did you know you could also brush your teeth using salt?

1.Fresh breath

Do you have bad breath?

Common salt could be the perfect solution for this.

Just have warm water in a glass, add half a spoon of salt and use the solution to brush your teeth. 

You will have a good breath when you do this more often.

2.Whitens teeth

Some people have discoloured teeth and have tried many ways to make them white but in vain. 

Use a solution of salt to brush them twice daily for one full week, and your teeth will be whiter.

3.Good for gums

If you have swollen or bleeding gums, it could be a clear sign of gum disease.

The best way to prevent it is by brushing your teeth with salt water daily.

4.Soothes a toothache

A toothache can never alert you when it is coming. 

It may occur at night, and you have no option. 

Go to your kitchen and get some warm water and salt solution. 

Brush your teeth aiming at the affected tooth, and believe me, you will have the best sleep ever.
