We all know brushing our teeth is important, but did you know that brushing your tongue is just as important? We brush our tongue overtime we brush our teeth. Germs and bacteria hang out on the tongue and it is imperative for healthy living that we brush our tongues. We have always used our tooth brushes to brush our tongue, but after using the specially designed TUNG brush, we all use TUNG now.
TUNG Brush has been designed to actually clean your tongue without gagging unlike cleaning your tongue with a toothbrush. The worst or grossest bacteria actually lives in the back of your tongue and TUNG Brush has been designed so that users can get to that bacteria without setting off that gag reflex we all hate.
Why Should We Brush Our Teeth? 90% of the bacteria that cause bad breath live on the tongue — not on the teeth or gums. But bad breath, or “chronic halitosis” as the creator of Listerine famously labelled it in the 1920s, isn’t the only reason to clean your tongue — nor, perhaps, the most important.
Where Does Bad Breath Come From?
The same anaerobic bacteria that are blamed for cavities in your teeth form thick colonies known as biofilm, which allow them to thrive in the nooks and crannies of the tongue. There, they consume leftovers from your meals and emit volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) as waste. These VSCs are the primary source of the odor we know as “bad breath.
