Did you know that most of the bacteria that cause bad breath are found on your tongue?
If you see a coating or a color on your tongue that doesn’t look right, chances are that you’re looking at bacterial residues that cause halitosis(bad breath).
While most people brush their teeth regularly and floss once a day, far fewer know that it’s just as important to clean your tongue as it is to clean your teeth and gums.
The tongue contributes to approximately 57% of the total bacteria found in the human mouth. Halitosis (bad breath) is mostly caused by Sulphur-producing bacteria that normally live on the surface of the tongue.
However in the majority of cases, bad breath that arises from the tongue can be treated through the simple process of cleansing and sanitizing the tongue thoroughly on a regular basis.
Tongue sanitization is a process of deep-cleansing of the tongue through the vacuuming of bacterial tongue coatings. This will eliminate the largest bacteria reservoir in the oral cavity and provide an Extraordinary feeling of freshness after treatment.
