Log in to Reply Because I’m not a stink ass bitch Log in to Reply I use a tongue scraper. Only a couple dollars at the pharmacy and you’d be surprised what it looks like when you scrape Log in to Reply I use a tongue scraper. I can watch a large mass of white nastiness get scraped off my tongue. It smells terrible. Why? It is composed of bacteria, sugars and food particles, and bacteria shit. If the smell isn’t bad enough, the fact that it helps produce the acids that give me cavities is. Log in to Reply You low-key need to deep throat that shit to kill the bacteria back there. Most of it hangs out at the back where the throat meets the tongue. I hate being a human. It’s fucking nasty sometimes. But after you brush, pop some mints and drink a cold glass of water to get the menthol and xylitol back there. You’ll have fresh breath for a while. Log in to Reply Yes, because bacteria love to hang out on your tongue, and that means bad breath. Log in to Reply No, i don’t brush at all after the incident Log in to Reply Yes because my fiancée won’t snuggle with me otherwise. Log in to Reply No. I watched a Sesame Street video with Elmo brushing his teeth and he didn’t mention anything about brushing your tongue. Log in to Reply Yes, because for my class’s 8th-grade science fair, in 1975, a student did a presentation about dental health, and it recommended brushing your tongue. Thanks, Jackie.

Log in to Reply No, because i never new about it until im an adult. So now i do it when i remember but that isnt often enough. Log in to Reply Yes. I also scrape often. It feels better imo. Log in to Reply No, my gag reflex does not allow it. I can barely brush my teeth sometimes wothout gagging.. I have woken up gagging from my mouth guard for bruxism (teeth grinding). The gagging can lead to vomiting, which IA worse than mot brushing my tongue. Log in to Reply I don’t do that because I don’t like it. Log in to Reply there’s so much bacteria on there, if i don’t brush my tongue my breath stinks in the mornings Log in to Reply https://youtu.be/UgSORyrcHJo – relevant.
