Salt kills the bugs that cause toothache

Submitted by Mervyn

If you suspect you have an infection, wash out your mouth with a glass of warm, or tepid, salted water every couple of hours or so until the inflammation and pain dies down - but don't use this effective remedy to put off that visit to the dentist.

salt does work Comments By: darren on 2009-10-16
if you have a hole in your tooth,and the root is exposed,put a small heap of salt on the end of your finger,and then put it into the hole,leave it there for at least 5 minutes,dont swallow it,then wash out with warm water,and the pain will be gone
