Why You Should Remember to Clean Your Tongue

Twice daily teeth brushing, daily flossing, and regular dentist check-ups are essential for good oral care — helping your overall well-being, too. The tongue should also be cleaned as part of a healthier mouth.

  • Scrape the tongue three to four times on each occasion, cleaning the tool you use between each scrape.
