The mouth has many bacteria, therefore any measure is just for protective purpose. Start with salt solution ( 1/2 teaspoon in 8 fl oz of water) and use as oral rinse while wait 1 week should be fine. Other oral rinsing solution may also be helpful. Many way to promote oral hygiene.

During this time you should follow good oral hygiene advice. You can rinse with hydrogen peroxide and water, half and half in a glass or cup, at least twice a day. Buy a water PIK at CVS, brush and floss, a healthy , diet and when brush, start on gums first, than your teeth. You can also mix in some baking soda on brush, this lowers the acid content of your oral fluids.
