Hi Amanda, Salt has an antiseptic effect, and that's the basic thing, but of course that effect is not on teeth, but on the oral cavity. Because of this, warm saline rinses are prescribed to patients after extractions. Sodium chloride does not have any particular effect on teeth, but a very high concentration may cause a little attrition (wear) when accompanied by strong brushing. thank you Dr. Shoaib
