I don't think salt is a good thing to be brushing with. If you ever go to the beach you know that salt dries out the skin. I can't see how this would keep gums healthy... I'd think it'd just dry them out.

SALT & TEETH ANSWERS Comments By: JENNIFER Lam on 2010-01-20
I think brushing with salt is good for teeth but bad for your gum.it will whitens teeth but cause gum inflammations as it gets under your gum. especially for people with high blood pressure, salt will inflame ur gum so bad that no tissue n bone are left to hold your teeth in place.( baking soda) is also salt. If ur gum is a pale pink color, firm, hardly bleeds during brushing, Then it would be good for you to brush with salt or bakin soda and hold salt water in ur salt for minutes like listerine. it helps maintain cleanness of entire mouth

How do I brush with salt? Do I mix it with the dental cream or brush alone with it?

I think it is really good for the teeth, but it totally destroy the gum... so if you use salt, do not use it very often... :)
Choose Wisely Comments By: Andre' on 2011-05-23
It all depends on the type of salt. Iodized salt IS HORRIBLE FOR YOU in many ways. It's toxic. However Natural sea salt or in my case Himilayan pink salt has been a miracle for my oral care. It has completely stopped the tooth sensitivity. Because natural salts are loaded with trace minerals they are th healty choice when using salt for consumption or oral health.
ACtually my Dentist told me....... Comments By: Spencer on 2011-08-16
I have braces and my dentist would say that my gums are swollen so to sit in front of the tv and try brushing with salt water for 20 to 30 min concentrating on my gums
