5 Reasons Why A Clean Tongue is Crucial For Health

5 Reasons Why A Clean Tongue is Crucial For HealthTongue plays a significant part not just in your oral health, but on your overall body wellness, too. Brushing and flossing your teeth remove bacteria dwelling on teeth and gums. However, 50% of the mouth bacteria reside on the surface of the tongue. This is why it is extremely important to include tongue cleaning to the routine of your oral hygiene.

Here are the five reasons that will make you realise why a well-cleaned tongue leads you to a better and healthier living:

 1-Eliminates Toxic Buildups From the Body

Tongue cleaning is an Ayurvedic practice that’s been around since ancient period in India. Ayurveda, which is a traditional Indian Science of Medicine, suggests tongue cleaning as part of your oral hygiene to remove ama (the toxic byproduct of improperly digested foods), and toxic debris that accumulates in the body.

 2-Improves Immune System

While you are sleeping, the digestive system is fully awake to detoxify itself. The toxins are accumulated on the tongue’s surface through internal excretory channels and are accountable for the white film commonly seen on the tongue when you check it every morning. First thing in the morning you should scrape your tongue as this eliminates the bacteria from your tongue and from your body. As a result, your overall health and immune system are remarkably improved.

How is Your Oral Hygiene Doing?

How is Your Oral Hygiene Doing? For most people, brushing teeth and having good breath is already a satisfying sign that they’ve been doing great in their oral hygiene. What they just don’t know, this essential routine does not end that way. Oral hygiene is not just about putting toothpaste on the top of your toothbrush or flossing away food particles; it’s beyond all these. Your teeth and gums must be both absolutely healthy.

Steps in Achieving Healthy Oral Hygiene

One basic step to consider in maintaining good oral hygiene is avoiding unhealthy lifestyle activities that will slowly destruct the strength of your teeth. Children should minimise eating sweets such as too much candies and chocolates. Adults, on the other hand, must practice healthy living through reducing alcohol intake and quitting smoking habits.

Don’t just simply brush your teeth. Do it thoroughly. Also, it’s a constant advice to brush your teeth every after meal, and don’t forget to do this twice a day. Being idle in brushing your teeth might lead to bacteria build-up, gum disease and cavities.

How Having Missing Teeth Affects You

How Having Missing Teeth Affects YouGetting tooth knocked out is a problem experienced by a lot of people, kids and adults alike. For children, it is normal for their baby teeth to fall off because these have to yield to the permanent ones. Aside from a little discomfort, this does not usually cause a huge concern. However, when it come to adults and their permanent teeth, it is an entirely different situation.

People usually think that losing teeth is inevitable as we age. Then again, tooth loss is actually a result of several factors including genetic inheritance, excessive tooth wear and tear, dental and oral health concerns, current general well-being and other medical conditions, diet, lifestyle habits, and even trauma as a result of accidents. All these contribute to your teeth getting knocked out.

The Consequences Of Missing Teeth

You might feel that having a little gap in your smile does not affect you that much. Then again, having missing teeth, if not addressed properly and immediately, can result to a number of problems that would eventually disrupt your day-to-day life.

When a tooth falls off, the other remaining teeth will gradually shift towards the direction of the empty space. This slight movement may cause your bite to weaken and your jawbone to shrink. Furthermore, this affects the bone that provides support for your facial structure. Due to these changes, you will eventually look way much older than your actual age.
