After a tooth surgery, you may be asked to rinse your mouth with salt water. Rinsing your mouth with salt water is typically done only after a surgery resulting in stitches. Rinsing your mouth with salt water helps your stitches dissolve more quickly. In addition to helping your stitches dissolve, salt water rinses also help keep food from getting stuck to your stitches. Salt water rinses are usually recommended to start the day of your surgery. Make sure you consult with your doctor to figure out when salt water rinsing should start and end.
