Top 3 Reasons to Brush Your Tongue Each Day

Posted on 3/17/2018 by Dr. Roger Chang
Brush Your Tongue Waterford Dental Group CA 94568-4603Why is it so important to brush your tongue? If you aren't brushing your tongue along with brushing and flossing your teeth, you are not getting rid of all the bacteria that's in your mouth. In this article we are going to be discussing the reasons why you should always brush your tongue.

Brushing Your Tongue and the Reason Why

Brushing and flossing is not enough to get all the bacteria out of your mouth. You also need to start brushing your tongue to get rid of all the harmful bacteria and germs from your mouth.

While brushing and flossing are extremely important, so is brushing your tongue. Here are some steps that you can do to rid the bacteria from your tongue.

Your tongue is a very large organ that holds a lot of bacteria inside your mouth. You may not think that brushing your tongue is a crucial step, but it is and it shouldn't be skipped, it should be added into your daily oral routine.

All you have to do to remove the harmful, odor causing build-up on your tongue is to apply some tooth paste to your brush and start in the main back of your tongue and gently brush downwards, making your way to the tip, be sure to clean the whole upper surface of your tongue and make sure you rinse your mouth out with water after you're done.

To get the most thorough cleaning for your tongue, you can use a scraper. This is a dental device that is made of soft bendable material that will gently scrap the thin layer of bacteria on the surface of your tongue. After cleaning your tongue be sure to always rinse your mouth out with warm water.

Reasons Why You Need to Brush Your Tongue

•  Brushing your tongue removes plaque and bacteria that can lead to gum disease and other infections that can travel to other places in your body.
•  You will get fresher breath by getting rid of the odor causing germs that will cause the bad breath.
•  It helps your taste buds by removing all that plaque and bacteria from your tongue your food will taste better and you will be able to enjoy your meals more because they will become more flavorful.

You need to brush your tongue at least twice a day along with your teeth and be sure to always floss in between your teeth to rid all the bacteria and plaque from your mouth. If you have any questions or concerns, please give us a call or stop by the office for a visit.
