How a Salt Water Mouth Rinse Benefits Oral Health (https://goo.gl/Qzwv1B)

One great way to maintain excellent oral hygiene is to use a salt water mouth rinse.

Rinsing with salt water can help you clear up numerous oral health issues, such as bad breath, sore throat, and even early stages of gingivitis.

To make a salt water rinse, simply add a half a teaspoon of salt to one cup of water and stir until it has dissolved. Using warm water will allow the salt to dissolve faster. Swish the solution around in your mouth for between ten and twelve seconds, and then spit.

Some of the oral hygiene issues that can lead to white tongue are:

Mouth Breathing: What Every Parent Needs to Know (https://goo.gl/wa7Yn1)

Breathing through one's mouth as opposed to through your nose can be a bad habit. It can lead to sleep issues, facial growth problems, and can create speech impediments.

It is especially common in children. But this behavior is luckily easy to correct. This habit often occurs in children who may have issues with breathing, have a thumb or finger-sucking habit, or had a tongue-tie.

If you observe your child breathing through his or her mouth, take note of how often this happens throughout the day. If there are no airway or breathing issues, you might want to consider consulting a doctor that specializes in breathing and sleep.

Mouth breathing issues are also commonly diagnosed by your family dentist.

5 Medications That May Be Causing Your Teeth to Decay (https://goo.gl/zNJrB6)

One of the common side effects of many medications is dry mouth. While this can seem like more of an annoyance than a real health concern, it can be both when it comes to your oral health.

Dry mouth can irritate the sensitive tissues in your mouth and make them inflamed. This in concert with reduced saliva which rinses away bacteria can increase your risk of tooth decay and gum disease exponentially.

Some common medications that often lead to dry mouth are antidepressants, blood pressure medications, antihistamines, antacids, and opioid painkillers.
