Oral hygiene

Hi, my MIL AD Severe, is about to have all her teeth removed. Any advice regarding trying to maintain oral hygiene would be appreciated please. I suspect this may be achieved by some oral solution, but MIL may swallow, causing problems, when she may be required to spit this or any solution out. Thank you

The dentist usually recommends rinsing out your mouth after extractions with warm salty water I don't think a pinch of salt if swallowed would harm her,
