December 8, 2006, Newsletter Issue #41: Brush Your Tongue

Tip of the Week

You think you're an all-star tooth brushing machine since your yoga has given you the flexibility to twist your arm and wrist into angles that reach even the most evasive corners of your mouth and rear molars. No plaque on your teeth or gums can escape your Zen-like mastery of the art of tooth brushing!

Think again. Under a microscope, your tongue looks like a little forest of bushes or mushrooms, under which you can harbor plaque, food particles, and bacteria. Aside from contributing to a bit of funky breath even after you've brushed, these stowaways will inevitably get moved around the rest of your mouth between brushings.

No individual dental plan is complete without a good tongue brushing.
