What is the point of brushing your tongue?
What does it do? Is it good, neutral, or bad to brush your tongue?

it is good to brush your tongue.. many microorganisms get deposited on your tongue though out the day.. they keep growing in numbers and are a cause of bad odor from the mouth.. brushing your tongue actually helps prevent foul odor from the mouth..

that's were all the jerm's are

Bacteria builds up all over your mouth - not just the teeth.

The tongue collects a good amount and is fairly easy to clean.

The point is it makes your breath cleaner and it will stay that way longer if you brush the tongue

SO: it is a good thing.. just be careful and not over do it.. use something designed for that purpose. I know most people do not do this and have no problem but everyone knows someone who should be doing this.

it's very good, that's were all the germs and bact. is, also causes bad breath if you don't brush your tongue

Sierra J
bacteria will build up and your breath will smell really bad if you dont brush it

i am a DENTIST... basically we should do tongue scrapping coz it removes germs present in white coat over the tongue... so by this way we can maintain the oral hygiene & results in no problem of bad odour.... but excessive tongue scrapping may cause damage to taste buds so be careful during tongue scrapping....

There's bacteria on your tongue after you eat too so i know dentists would advice you to brush it

You should definitely brush your tongue. The white stuff that will build up on there is from bacteria, and it causes bad breath.

When you brush your teeth, you are only removing a small fraction of the bacteria and food debris in your mouth. Your tongue is like a giant food sponge. It traps bits of food and tons of bacteria. If you still have bad breath after you brush your teeth, its probably your tongue that needs a good scrub. Just make sure you don't hit your gag spot. Also a tongue scraper works really well because it moves all the junk up front and out instead of just moving it around like a regular toothbrush does. Also with the scraper, make sure that you don't do it too hard too often, once a day is fine, because your taste buds start to hurt. in other words, it is very good to brush your tongue.

actually, tongue scrapers are used to scrape away the germs in your tongue.

you do this to get the bacteria and germs of your tongue

Brushing your tongue when you brush your teeth is part of good dental hygiene. It's as important as flossing. It seems trivial but it's important in the aid of fighting bad breath and gingivitis causing germs that can stay on your tongue. Plaque doesn't only form on your teeth, but also on your tongue.

It is highly recommended by dentists that you brush your tongue! The tongue has a bumpy surface that is home to tons of bacteria. These bacteria feed on the remnants of things you eat. This is the main cause of bad breath! If the situation gets really out of control, it is referred to as Halitosis.The only way to get rid of this odor-causing bacteria is to clean your tongue. There are a few different ways to accomplish this. One is to use the bristles on your toothbrush and gently scrub at your tongue. It doesn't take a lot of force or time. Alternatively there are some toothbrushes that provide a tongue cleaner on the back of the brush. Follow the instructions on the packaging. Finally, you can purchase a tongue scraper. These mechanisms look a little scary, but the concept is the same. You just gently pull the scraper across your tongue and it removes that filmy layer of bacteria and food particles to leave you with a pretty, healthy, and clean-smelling tongue.
