Jacob Trager DDS ©
Warm Salt Water Soaks

Salt, indicated for swelling, soreness and pain in the mouth, can act as an Irritant in too heavy a concentration.

Take 1/2 tsp. of sea salt (can be found at most health food stores)and dissolve in an 8 oz. glass of warm water (your finger must be able to stand the temperature or it will be too hot for the mouth).

Take a mouthful and hold it on the affected side until the warmth goes out of the mouthful. Repeat until the glass is empty.

Repeat this every hour if the symptoms are acute or four times a day until the symptoms have alleviated.


Cuts and Scrapes Inside the Mouth and on the Lips

Vitamin E covered with orates, available at your pharmacy, works effectively. If vitamin E liquid is not available, take a 200 unit vitamin E capsule and make a small opening In one end and squeeze the necessary amount on the abrasion.

We recommend that you stay away from foods high In acid, salt and pepper, and foods that are crispy.


Canker Sores or Mouth Ulcers

Canker sores or mouth ulcers are often painful and Interfere with normal eating. Avoid using harsh chemicals like camphophenique as the phenol does not limit itself to the surface tissue and can affect deeper tissue cells.

Use a gentle oral bandage like plain orates to keep the ulcer covered. This should allow gentle healing in several days. If the sore or ulcer has not disappeared in ten to fourteen days, a visit to your dentist Is recommended.


Cold Sores or Blisters on the Lips or Corners of the Mouth

At the first sign of a cold sore, usually a slight swelling, redness, or soreness, begin taking a 500 mg. Lysine tablet or capsule two to three times a day (available at your pharmacy or health food store). This natural amino acid works wonders in the prevention and treatment of this problem.
