Hello beautiful,

BS 2018I see you're back for more tips, hints, styles, and trends to help you look and feel your best!

When you brush your teeth, how much time do you really spend brushing your tongue? A clean tongue is just as an important part of good oral hygiene. Brushing your tongue can do you a whole lot of good – right from removing the extra particles that may breed bacteria to reducing bad breath.

In this week's Looking Good, we’ll discuss details about tongue cleaning you may not have known before.

Until we meet again,

*-- Unbelievable Reasons Why to Brush Your Tongue --*

Some might wonder, "What is the tongue even responsible for?" Well, for starters the tongue might seem like one of the most simple organs in your body, but did you know that it starts your digestion process? Not only that but it plays an extremely important role in your taste and speech.

Brushing your tongue...What's the big deal? The big deal is that it improves bad breath. Food debris, bacteria, and even dead cells can build up on your tongue over time which causes bad breath. Brushing your tongue is a way of improving oral hygiene – and it helps eliminate bad breath. Make sure you are brushing the middle and the back of your tongue.

Another interesting fact is that brushing your tongue can help prevent oral infections. It has been proven that brushing your tongue can reduce the harmful bacteria that causes tooth decay. The surface texture of the tongue supports the formation and accumulation of plaque which is another important reason why you want to brush your tongue. Did you know that oral surfaces are colonized by over 500 bacterial species and the tongue carries the most load?

Although a regular, manual toothbrush will do the trick, electric toothbrushes do decrease more plaque and gingivitis than regular toothbrushes. Studies show that after three months of use, plaque was reduced by 21%. Now electric toothbrushes can get up to over $50 in cost...but I got mine for under $10 here and it even comes with 5 brush heads!
