We all know that daily teeth brushing and flossing sessions are vital for maintaining good oral health. However, many people are unaware that the majority of bacteria in the mouth is actually harbored on the tongue. The tongue accounts for 1/3 of the mouth surface area and there are about four times more bacteria on each tongue cell compared to any other cell in the mouth. The tongue is a complex organ that performs amazing tasks for us but it also happens to be a superb depository for collecting food debris and bacteria. The visible white coating on the tongue is the resulting layer of evil-smelling sulfur compounds excreted by populations of bacteria. Even a rigorous routine of teeth brushing, flossing, and water flossing will do little to reduce this carpet of bacteria on the tongue. So, if you really want to give your mouth a completely clean, it might be time to get yourself an effective tongue scraper or cleaner.
Cleaning your tongue of bacteria, dead skin cells and food debris is an excellent way of improving your oral and general health. By decreasing the number of bacteria on your tongue you can decrease your risk of cavities, gum disease and diseases that originate in the mouth.
The bacteria that cause bad breath thrive and multiply in the cracks and spaces of the tongue surface. These colonies of bacteria feed off of the remnants of the food we consume and then excrete the foul-smelling waste compounds that cause bad breath.
