Bad Breath and Your Tongue

Posted on March 31, 2016 at 8:00 AM

Bacteria Target: The Tongue

You brush and floss every day, but you are missing a huge part of oral hygiene if you neglect your tongue. Your tongue is a giant target for bacteria and a major cause of bad breath! The tongue is covered with taste buds and in between the taste buds are valleys. Those dips, valleys and crevices are the perfect spot for bacteria to hide, grow and multiply.

Is your tongue a different color other than pink?

Whatever you are putting in your mouth will feed the bacteria. When that bacteria settles in the crevices of the tongue, it stays put. If not removed, food, tobacco and beverages will stain the bacteria. The bacteria will continue to grow in the crevices of the tongue and the now “longer” bacteria will catch more stain, resulting in a funny colored tongue, bad breath and reduce the ability to taste.

How do I clean my tongue?

Think a rinse will work? Think again. This bacteria is stuck in crevices on the tongue and continue to grow and thrive unless that bacteria is scrubbed out by bristles.

It is recommended to brush your tongue each time you brush your teeth.

• Brush back and forth

• Brush side to side

• Repeat as necessary until the bacteria coating is gone

• A tongue cleaner is a good tool to use if the bacteria coating is really stubborn.

 

Bad Breath Still a Problem?

If your tongue is clean and your still notice bad breath, come see us. The problem may be more involved- tooth decay, infection, sinus issues, dry mouth, to name a few.

I have been with white tongue for over a month, I have anything to clean, and maintaining oral hygiene, but no results, what could be the problem. Am really worried, and I can't go out because of lockdown.

I simply needed to thank you so much yet again. I'm not certain the things I might have taken care of in the absence of the type of basics discussed by you on such area. Certainly was an absolute terrifying issue in my position, however , taking a look at the very specialized fashion you dealt with it took me to leap over contentment. Extremely happier for the support and thus hope that you are aware of a great job you have been getting into instructing the mediocre ones with the aid of a web site. More than likely you have never met all of us.
