How do I know when my lip piercing is healed?

I got my lip ring a month ago and there was no swelling and it never hurt. I think my piercing is fully healed but I'm not sure. I want to stop rinsing with saltwater because it looks and feels perfectly fine, but I don't know how much longer I'm supposed to and I don't want to risk infection. Also, if it is healed, could I replace the ring now? Some people say wait up to three months but I think that's a little extreme..
