What does a clean tongue have to do with teeth?
As it turns out, a whole lot! The surface of the tongue comes into contact with everything you put in your mouth, so imagine how much residue could be hanging around and attacking your teeth causing cavities and dental problems! I don't know about you but I want to keep my dentist trips to a minimum so anything that can keep my teeth is great health is important!
Why does my tongue need to be cleaned?
Ever looked into the mirror in the morning and wondered what's on your tongue? We might go to bed when the day is finally done, but our digestive system never sleeps. As toxins are removed from our body, they often end up on our tongue. You definitely want that gone, otherwise those toxins are reabsorbed into your body!
A dirty tongue is also a main cause of bad breath, so it's important to make sure your tongue is as clean as possible! A cleaner tongue also means more flavour in food as it allows the taste buds to perform better, so you can really taste just how delicious that naughty afternoon snack is!
