Have you ever tried cleaning your tongue?

Sometimes brushing and flossing alone won’t give you a super fresh feeling, that is when you should look into cleaning your tongue as well. The tongue can harbour lots of bacteria that can give you bad breath and even contribute to dental decay.

There are plenty of devices on the market to do the job. You can either get a toothbrush with a built-in tongue cleaner, get a specially designed tongue scraper or buy an attachment for your electric toothbrush. Start cleaning your tongue from the back working in long sweeping motions towards the tip, applying gentle pressure.

When you are done have a good rinse with water or alcohol-free mouthwash to remove the loosened-up film.
