Should You Rinse With Peroxide Or Salt Water To Treat A Cavity?

Postby Boda » Mon Dec 08, 2014 3:22 am

I have a bad cavity that I haven't been able to get treated for a long time because I'm uninsured. And even though I finally found a job, it's still going to be a while before I can save up the money for insurance.






Anyway, to try and keep the tooth from getting any worse I've started rinsing my mouth with diluted peroxide after meals. But a lot of home remedies I read say to gargle with salt water instead. Does one treat cavities better than the other?

Depends what kind of peroxide you're using. Hydrogen peroxide is mostly used to whiten your teeth and really messes up your gums-you shouldn't be using it. Saltwater is just salt and water don't see how that would help. To be honest you should pick up some sensodyne toothpaste for like $8 and some MI paste, which is not a toothpaste and you just rub it on your teeth before bed and it gradually builds up your enamel, it is the best and most trusted product.
