Brushing the teeth two twice a day without cleaning the tongue is as good as not brushing at all.

This
is because the tongue is a breeding ground for bacteria and when not
cleaned, it causes everything from bad breath to infections.
It
is important to note that the tongue is not just contained with
harmless saliva. It’s a carrier of biofilm or a group of microorganisms.
And unfortunately, getting rid of it isn’t as simple as drinking water
or using mouthwash.
As a matter of fact,
it’s difficult to kill the bacteria in the biofilm because, for example,
when mouth rinses are used, only the outer cells of the biofilm are
destroyed; thereby leaving the cells beneath the surface to thrive,
which often lead to bad breath and even tooth damage.
Be
that as it may, it is not encouraged to use force to brush the tongue.
With gentle brushing, the tongue will be cleaned of the mucus trapping
the bacteria that are usually in abundance on the surface.

After brushing the teeth, use the bristles to gently brush the tongue in these easy steps:
1.
After brushing the teeth, reach for the back of the tongue with the
same brush of a tongue scraper and then work this forward towards the
mouth opening,
2. Brush the surface of the tongue
using gentle strokes. Don’t apply too much pressure so as not to tear
into the skin which can open up the area to infection.
3. Rinse with water and spit just like you would brush the teeth and you’re done!
Brushing
the tongue is one way to get rid of bad breath permanently and it’s
endorsed by dental experts so don’t be afraid to brush away!

1. Better breath

The
bad bacteria in your mouth are one of the primary sources of bad
breath. The good bacteria in your mouth will do their best to fight off
the foul-smelling bacteria, but they need health. By scraping or
brushing your tongue, you will remove the layers of bacteria that cause
stinky breath.

2. Taste

As
the bacteria cover your taste buds, you may find that the flavors of
your food are muted. By cleaning your tongue you can expose more of your
taste buds and enjoy richer flavors in your food.

3. Dental health

Like
we mentioned above, the bad bacteria in your mouth cause cavities and
gum disease. By removing the bacteria on your tongue, you can improve
the overall health of your mouth and potentially avoid a trip for cavity
filling at the dentist.
Monrovia patients can either scrape their tongue with a specially designed tongue-scraper or use their toothbrush.

Note

Cleaning
your tongue usually makes bad breath go away, but if it’s still a
problem, you may want to consult with a dentist or your doctor. Your
problem could be more serious.
Bad breath can be
caused by tooth decay; infections in your mouth, nose, sinuses, or
throat; medications; and even cancer or diabetes.
