Which Teas Help Soothe the Mouth Following Oral Surgery
Posted on 1/20/2019 by Alyssa O'Steen
The mouth and throat areas often heal rather quickly because of the healing properties in saliva. There are teas and other natural drinks that can help this process and make the mouth more comfortable. These teas are natural, and they can provide a soothing effect that other drinks may not be able to provide.
Teas That Soothe the Mouth
These teas all work to soothe the mouth and throat and can be consumed after having oral surgery. It is important to check the temperature of the tea prior to drinking it to reduce the chances of burning your mouth or irritating the surgical site.

Adding honey to the tea can help to soothe the mouth, but remember not to add too much, as this can be overly sweet and irritate the area. Herbal teas have been shown to boost healing in the body, hydrate, comfort and provide a relaxing effect on the consumer.
They can be an ideal way to naturally care for the mouth and soothe any discomfort that a patient may have after having oral surgery. If you're wondering if this is something allowed, speak with our oral surgeon here to see what they recommend based on your particular situation.
Always remember to stay hydrated to get faster healing times. Water is ideal in between and never use straws since this can cause the blood clot to dislodge. Following the instructions given to you by our oral surgeon is the best way to heal.
