If your mouth is uncomfortable due to an abrasion, sore, swelling, or otherwise, then you may not know exactly what to do. You may wonder if you should just wait as long as you can. You may think that going on with life as usual is the best thing to do for a while. The truth is, what you need for discomfort is to take action. Your Corona dentist extends some helpful tips to make sure you’re not making things worse, to help you through, and to assist you in getting back to that wonderful place of comfort.

#1: Swishing With Salt Water Helps Heal

Swishing with salt water will help with just about anything. It’s a natural antiseptic, which means it helps your smile heal. If you have a sore or abrasion, it will actually help it stay clean and will help your smile feel better. It can help soothe your mouth if inflammation is present. In short: It’s very helpful for protection and relief (but only until you see us, which should be soon, explains your Corona dentist).

#2: Avoiding Spicy And Hot Foods Helps

Don’t add fuel to the fire, so to speak. If you are dealing with discomfort, spicy foods can make things feel much worse. The same is true for hot foods and beverages. Focus on cool or lukewarm foods to stop discomfort from worsening, suggests your Corona dentist.

#3: Seeing Us Will Offer The Final Word

You can rinse and rinse with salt water, remain mindful of food that you’re eating, and more. However, if something is wrong and persists, it’s probably not going to go away all by itself. For the final word on what’s happening and to fix any existing problems, your Corona dentist reminds you that you need a visit with our team!
