Brushing Your Tongue

What is big and strong and so very important in your mouth?

Your tongue!

Our tongue is essential for eating and swallowing properly. And try talking without using your tongue!

But our tongue also harbors lots of biofilm (plaque) and spreads it around our whole mouth constantly. That is why brushing your tongue every day is an important part of your daily oral hygiene program in addition to brushing and flossing your teeth.

Once a day, using your toothbrush or a tongue scraper, get as far back on your tongue as possible and gently brush to the front to remove as much biofilm (plaque) as possible.

And yes, we know you will gag when you do this. So do we.

Just do the best you can.
