Why is it important to clean your tongue properly?

Years ago, the importance of brushing your teeth was unknown and no one ever did. However, things have changed and today it is unthinkable not to brush your teeth after every meal. The case of the tongue is different, since the need to clean it is still forgotten on many occasions, despite being essential to maintain proper hygiene and oral health.

Without it, we would not be able to perform such essential actions as talking, chewing, swallowing or tasting food. It has a huge diversity of muscles, which allows us to have great mobility. In addition, it allows us to tactilely detect many surfaces and has important blood vessels and nerves.

At the base of the tongue, called the lingual floor, are the salivary glands. In addition, it is lined with thousands of papillae, the coroliform ones give that velvety appearance and the gustatory ones, which are divided into many types, are what give us a sense of taste.

An uneven surface:

The surface of the tongue has grooves and grooves, it is very rough. These holes cause food debris and bacteria to accumulate that can cause tooth decay or periodontal disease.

Therefore, it is very important to clean the tongue properly. By doing so we will notice the flavors more, and we will benefit the whole health of the mouth, also reducing the chances of having bad breath.

The tongue, which should have a velvety and pinkish appearance, may be a reflection of the patient's state of health. It should not be whitish, nor should it be smooth, as it would be a swollen tongue.

In addition, if it has a yellowish or brown appearance, it is usually due to lack of cleanliness, but it can also be a reflection of some pathology or problem. Therefore, the specialist advises to consult our dentist in case of maintaining good hygiene and finding changes in the appearance of our tongue.


Clean it every day, at least twice.

The ideal utensil is the tongue scraper, although we can also use a toothbrush (in the case of the latter, it should not be the one we use to brush our teeth).

Stick out the tongue as much as possible, place the device on the back of the tongue and press it lightly, sliding it from behind to the tip of the tongue.

Use toothpaste, water, or mouthwash. It is recommended that the dentist be consulted on which toothpaste and mouthwash to use.
