There are several things on a list of to-dos in order to maintain a regimen for good oral health. Brushing and flossing are top priorities along with using a fluoride toothpaste and selecting a toothbrush that is the right size and quality for your individual purposes but doesn’t forget to take care of your tongue. Not only does your tongue allow you to speak but it lets you chew and swallow your food which in turn will aid in digestion.
The tongue is where the thousands of taste buds that let you enjoy your favorite foods and drinks thrive. Unfortunately, it also provides the perfect environment for the growth of harmful bacteria. It’s important to remove that bacteria every day in order to avoid disease or infection and keep your tastebuds healthy. Remember, your tongue is in constant contact with your teeth. A tongue scraper is made specifically to clean your teeth of bacteria. You can find a tongue scraper and a tongue cleaning solution alongside the other dental care products in your local pharmacy.
Rinse with water after cleaning your tongue just as you would after brushing your teeth. Drink water every day to stay hydrated, promote the flow of your saliva and flush debris from your teeth and tongue. A clean mouth means fresher breath.
