What does tongue brushing do?

Many people are aware that cleaning their teeth keeps microorganisms at bay. Many individuals are unaware that they must clean their tongues after brushing and flossing their teeth. This is because bacteria in the teeth can migrate to the tongue and then back into the gaps between the teeth, forming gingivitis if combined with leftover food. Brush your tongue after cleaning your teeth at all times. To avoid damaging the tongue, use a gentle brush.

When to brush the tongue

Brushing of the tongue should be done at any time you are brushing your teeth. This is at least twice a day. The bacteria causing gum disease and tooth decay hide in the tongue when you are brushing your teeth. This means that at any given time when you are observing oral hygiene consider brushing the tongue and give it a priority like brushing teeth and flossing.
