Salt Water Mouth Rinse

EB Hacks, Salt Water Rinse

Hey, Guys, it’s Emily here from MiaThrives!

At a recent dentist appointment, this hack was recommended to me to help prevent gum disease. People living with EB have a slightly higher risk of developing gum disease because of the constant sores in our mouths. Using a salt water rinse daily helps to both prevent gum disease and heal EB related trauma in the mouth.

You can watch the full video here (or down below).

Salt Water Rinse:

  • ½ a teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of warm water
  • Swish in mouth for 10-20 seconds

Note: Do not drink the salt water because the salt is dehydrating

Positive Points To Note From Use:

  • Inhibits dental bacteria
  • Salt has healing properties
  • Soothes and heals mouth sores
