Can I use my toothbrush to clean my tongue?
Your toothbrush was designed to clean the hard enamel surface of your teeth. Your tongue is a soft tissue with many crevices. Brushing your tongue does not remove or kill the bad bacteria. It is important to clean the back of your tongue with a tongue sweeper. The following is a quote from the Colgate website.
Some people use a regular toothbrush to clean the tongue. The disadvantage of using a regular toothbrush on the tongue is that the bristles are designed to clean the smooth surfaces of your teeth. Your tongue is a rough surface with many tiny crevices, and regular toothbrush bristles may not do a thorough cleaning job. A 2004 study in the Journal of Periodontology showed that a toothbrush reduced the production of volatile sulfur compounds by 45 percent while a tongue sweeper reduced production by 75 percent.
