Salt Water Tea Bag for Inflamed Gums

I grind my teeth while I sleep so I wear a night guard. This helps a lot but I still chew on the guard all night. Sometimes when I wake up in the morning, my gums are inflamed from doing so. Swishing with warm salt water is helpful but does not have as much as a lasting effect as using both salt water and a tea bag compress.

Use a tea bag that's high in tannin content such as black tea or green tea. Place in a small cup or bowl with a big pinch of salt and steep in a bit of boiling water for a few minutes.

Let the hot tea bag cool down a bit, then hold up to the inflamed area of your gums for about 5 minutes. This works for any type of gum inflammation such as gingivitis, or other tooth and gum related pains.
