I have been cleaning my mouth with salt water after every meal for the past two weeks. This is part of the healing process after a wisdom tooth extraction.
Oral Surgery: I received a gift.
During the first week, I sprinkled salt all over my bathroom cabinet. My salt container has a through hole similar to a salt shaker, and sometimes the salt gets stuck in the hole.

As for the wisdom tooth I mentioned earlier, I've been meaning to have it pulled for about 10 years. what can I say? As time went by quickly, I kept it in the back of my mind.
