A tip from my dentist

Gargling with hot salt water can reduce gum disease. My daughter who is a dental nurse told me that she sees many people with beautiful white teeth, but terrible gum disease because they brushed their teeth well, but did not know that the gums needs brushing too, so they will lose those beautiful white teeth soon. Important note: Discuss this with your dentist, in case he has special advice on the matter for you. (Only use one teaspoon of salt, any more than that could leach and cause other problems for you including blood pressure).

Two more hints:  If you have a dental problem pray for and to the   Holy Souls in Purgatory and to St Appollonia to help you, as well as doing all that you can regarding the problem.
