Hi! Hihi, I am not sure but may be salt can kill and remove bacteria within a few minutes. I do not think that this is a permanent remedy for the cause.  Use of other medicines can be helpful and more appropriate than to use salt.

Your mouth has billions of bacteria.  You may be trying to kill pathogenic bacteria, but you will never kill all of the bacteria in your mouth.  Most do not make you sick.  They are there for your whole life.
