Words of Wisdom No.3 – Clean Your Tongue
Brushing your teeth is one way of cleaning your mouth but this is not enough in order to keep the bacteria out. Even if you’re already applying the right way of brushing your teeth, your mouth can still be prone to plaque buildup. Why? It is because of your tongue. Cleaning your tongue is necessary in order to make sure that you covered up all grounds. Brushing your tongue is a good way to clean it but there’s actually a better way to do it.
Using a tongue scraper every morning in order to remove plaque buildup can save your mouth from the stinky smell caused by the bacteria. The reason why you still have a bad breath even after brushing is that you are not thoroughly cleaning your mouth from teeth to tongue. Always bear in mind that bacteria from tongue can still affect your teeth and hence cause decay overtime if neglected. According to Dr. Katz, using a tongue scraper is actually more effective than just brushing your tongue. So, keep your mouth healthy by cleaning both your teeth and tongue with a toothbrush and a tongue scraper.
