Treatment at home will only hurt the patient. Both folk remedies and antibiotics can be prescribed by a dentist only as additional measures. Typically, after surgery, such measures are required in order to completely eliminate the dental flux. Treatment at home reduces to rinsing the mouth with a mild warm solution of potassium permanganate, a solution of furacilin or sodium hydrogen carbonate. Recommended for rinsing medicinal plants.
