Do you have to brush your tongue?
Posted on 9/22/2022 by Covington Family Dental
Do you have to brush your tongue?Your tongue is a large part of your mouth that is covered in bacteria! This bacteria leads to halitosis (bad breath) and even tooth decay.

Mouth wash alone does not do the trick. Bacteria settles into your taste buds and other tongue structures that requires brushing to effectively remove it.

A clean and healthy tongue lowers your risk of periodontal disease, bad breath, and enhances your taste buds. Brushing your tongue should be a part of your daily oral hygiene routine.

How to clean your tongue:\It doesn’t take too much time!
Simply stick your tongue out of your mouth as far as you can (to prevent gagging) and brush it back and forth, side to side gently covering all areas. Rinse your mouth and you’re done!

If your tongue is starting to form a white film on it a tongue scraper may be necessary - consult with your hygienist if this is the case.

Happy tongue brushing! [-10179][-8694]
