Dr. Kanani, Woodland Hills Dentist: Tongue Brushing May Be as Important as Tooth Brushing
Date:6/12/2013

Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) June 12, 2013

Many people think that brushing and flossing their teeth is the most important way to keep out of the dentist's chair.

The extra bacteria not being scraped off the tongue can feed on leftover starches and sugars, creating an acid wash that works to eat through the enamel coating on teeth. This is especially why teeth and tongue ought to be brushed in the morning and at night, so that bacteria have less of a chance to help form acids. Drinking lemon or lime juice without rinsing afterward can create
