dca-blog-172-mix-of-leftover-articles_1200x630

When it comes to dental health, people focus on their teeth and gums and forget about their tongue. But the surface of the tongue tends to attract debris and bacteria that can cause a white tongue and many other dental problems. To remove these harmful substances, you need to clean your tongue. Discover the reasons why tongue cleaning should be a part of your hygiene routine.

Why Tongue Cleaning will Make you Smile

Tongue cleaning is an easy and effective way to improve your dental health, medical state, and overall appearance. Its many benefits include:

  • Removes the bacteria and toxins that result in a white tongue
  • Makes the tongue look very clean by eliminating the unattractive coating of a white tongue
  • Cleans both the tongue and the entire mouth to reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease
  • Gets rid of bad breath
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Improves digestion
  • Enhances your sense of taste
  • Provides an attractive and healthy smile

Simple Steps of Tongue Cleaning

Tongue cleaning should be performed first thing in the morning before eating or drinking. This will remove the bacteria and white coating that accumulated while you slept. Tongue cleaning can be performed once or twice a day, depending on whether the white coating returns before the next morning. To use a tongue cleaner, follow these trusted tips:

  1. Before you begin, rinse the tongue cleaner with fresh water.
  2. Stick out your tongue and hold the edges of the tongue cleaner with your index finger and thumb.
  3. Hold the back, rounded part of tongue cleaner against the back of the tongue.
  4. Slide the tongue cleaner forward along your tongue to remove the bacteria and toxins that lead to a white tongue.
  5. Gently pull the tongue cleaner over your tongue as many times as needed to clean the entire surface of the tongue.
  6. When you’re done, wash the tongue cleaner with soap and cold water.
  7. Enjoy a cleaner, fresher, healthier mouth!
