Question: Impacted Wisdom Teeth Infection..?
My dentist says My wisdom teeth r infected
My dentist told me to gargle my mouth with salt water

How often should I do this.? Is there anything else to reduce the infection .?Health Question & Answer

Salt water is largely ineffective.
Get a chlorhexidine mouthwash e.g. Peridex, and use it 2x daily after brushing. I give it out to all my patients pre-extraction and post-extraction. Keeps everything perfectly clean, even the stitches.Health Question & Answer

Rinse with warm salt water at least 5 times a day to start. If you have a water pick, use that. Consider having the teeth removedHealth Question & Answer
