The tongue should be cleaned and taken care of the same way as you take care of your other body parts.
The tongue is an important indicator that revels a lot about our health. Its shape, color, humidity or dryness, deposits, lines, cracks, all these features are important for your overall health. Deposits from the tongue are one of the features that are crucial for making the right diagnosis for your health. Healthy tongue is always pinky and fresh. Each occurrence of a deposit on the tongue that lasts for more than a few days is a sign of a potential problem in the body. Regular cleaning of the tongue not only frees you from deposits, but also improves the sense of taste, removes bad breath, protects the teeth and oral cavity. The thin layer that covers the tongue contains millions of bacteria, so with the continuous cleaning you will prevent further infections.
To improve your oral hygiene, clean your tongue 10 seconds two times a day. This will reduce the bacteria in the mouth.
All you need is a tongue scraper. Using it is very simple-slide it gently on the surface of your tongue 2-3 times back and forth. Rinse your mouth. Then wash thoroughly with water. Also, there are toothbrushes that have a special part for cleaning the tongue. Why do you frequently have a bad breath in the morning? While sleeping, less saliva is secreted, so the mouth dries which is the perfect environment for reproduction of bacteria.
Did you know that it takes up to ten days to rebuild the endings on the tongue that are responsible for the sense of taste? The many deposits on the tongue can be a sign of indigestion and sick body. For more advice, consult your doctor.
