Importance of tongue cleaning in dental care

Posted on 9/11/2023 by Dr. Bembey and Dr. Yokoyama
Importance of tongue cleaning in dental careMost people think brushing and flossing are the only ways to maintain your oral health therefore, cleaning your tongue is neglected as a result. Below we tell you more about tongue cleaning and the importance of it.

Why tongue cleaning is important

The tongue is a breeding ground for microorganisms and different microbes, that lead to bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease. Brushing your teeth alone will not remove all the bacteria and particles in your mouth. By incorporating brushing of your tongue it will enhance your overall oral health.

Tongue brushing is done with tools like tongue cleaners, a toothbrush, and/or tongue scrappers. This leaves your mouth in good health as you wipe away any bacteria that could be harmful. As a result, issues like gingivitis and periodontitis are less of a threat.

It is a way to smoothen the tongue

Cleaning your tongue takes a few minutes, a maximum of a minute to be precise. Start by brushing your teeth, rinse your mouth with water, and then use a tongue scrapper or toothbrush to gently scrape your tongue from the back to the front. Rinse your mouth once more to do away with the residue on the tongue.

Incorporate tongue cleaning in your routine

To make this a habit, incorporate it into your brushing schedule every time. To do this, ensure that every time you are brushing, the tongue scraper is next to you.
