Cleaning the Tongue

Posted on 2/7/2022 by Summit Dental Group
Cleaning the TongueWe are all aware that brushing and flossing the teeth at least twice daily is important. Flossing and brushing of the teeth ensure that all food particles left in the mouth after eating are washed away. The dental team will advise you on how to brush with the right technique. The professional will also talk to you about the importance of brushing your tongue and this gives you optimal oral health.

Prevention of Gum Disease

Cleaning the tongue is important since it helps in the removal of bad mouth bacteria. When you fail to brush the tongue the bacteria in the tongue and food particles in the tongue will combine with bacteria in the mouth and cause acid to be formed. The acid erodes the teeth' enamel and will lead to tooth decay, tooth loss, and even cavities. When the tongue is cleaned this is likely to prevent gingivitis and gum disease of any kind. Ensure that when you are brushing and flossing the teeth you brush the tongue. The mouth bacteria can hide in the tongue as you brush the teeth then get back to the teeth later. That is why it is vital to brush your tongue when you are brushing teeth.

Bad breath

The cleaning of the tongue is important for it will help in keeping away bad breath. This is because the mouth bacteria that is in the mouth is cleaned after brushing. When you brush the tongue the mouth becomes fresh, and only fresh breath emanates from the mouth. Our dental team will guide you on how to brush the tongue with a soft bristle brush and this will give you optimal oral health. The tongue is an organ that must be cleaned at any time you are brushing the teeth
