Studies that have looked at effective hygiene of the tongue suggest that a tongue cleaner other than your toothbrush is recommended because these tools are more effective at removing the layer of debris that builds up and has an odor.  Look at your tongue.  If it’s not pink, you’ve got a problem.  Please call our office, 12 Oaks Dental, and let us take a look.
