What Happens If You Don’t Clean Your Tongue?
Your tongue facilitates harmful oral bacteria that travels to your digestive system. Here are things that happen when you don’t clean your tongue.
- Bad breath is one of the major effects of not cleaning the tongue.
- Bad bacteria on a dirty tongue allows for gum disease.
- You might get dull taste buds, oral thrush and other issues like white patches on oral skin.
This is why you should clean your tongue regularly with a tongue scraper, a metal spoon, or your toothbrush.
Visit your dentist regularly for teeth and tongue cleaning and professional checkups.
