Clean Tongue, Fresh Breath

Clean Tongue, Fresh Breath
Many people are unaware of the correlation between not brushing the tongue and bad breath- also known as halitosis. Brushing or using a tongue cleaner is beneficial in reducing VSC’s or Volatile Sulfur Compounds on the tongue. In one study, it was found that for a majority of the patients, the cause of halitosis was found to be tongue coating. Since most of the bacteria in the mouth is harbored on the tongue, removal of that bacteria is key to help reduce bad breath.
