Everybody wants to have a clean, healthy mouth and fresh breath but not everybody knows that brushing and flossing alone are not enough.

Dentists now recognise that tongue cleaning should be a part of everyone’s oral hygiene routine.

The tongue carries a lot of dead cells where sulphur compound producing plaque can get trapped and cause bad breath.

Correctly cleaning the tongue reduces the amount of sulphur compounds in the mouth by removing dead cells and bacteria from the tongue, giving you cleaner, fresher breath.

By removing the plaque and bacteria from your tongue you will also improve the health of your entire mouth, dramatically reducing  plaque and lessening the chance of developing tooth decay or gum problems.

Cleaning your tongue is a simple process, you can use a purpose-made ‘tongue cleaner’ or you can buy a toothbrush with a specially designed cleaner for the tongue on the back.

Our expert hygienist and the dentist will show you the best methods for keeping your teeth, gums and tongue clean and healthy, devising the best oral health strategy for you.
