Nice post Dr. Saline temporarily increases the pH balance of your mouth, creating an alkaline environment in which bacteria struggle to survive. Because they along with most other natural species generally prefer an acidic environment, using the rinse often enough can make it difficult for bacteria to breed. The use of salt also promotes healing, so it's ideal to use it gently 24 hours after minor dental surgery to help your mouth recover. It's an isotonic solution, which means it contains the same salts and minerals our bodies do in equal concentrations hence it does not cause any irritation to oral mucous membrane

Dr when do u advise Betadine mouth wash.
Sir it is being indicated in periodontal cases (abscesses, postoperative prevention) and in oral medicine cases alone or in combination with specific treatment schedule as it is excellent against bacterial and fungal infections in the oral cavity, which prevent or treat bacterial infections after surgical interventions. By this way the bacterial superinfections of exulcerant oral mucosal diseases are avoidable.The only contraindication is iodine allergy.
