If you’re constantly struggling with bad breadth problems, research reveals that it has A LOT to do with your negligence at brushing your tongue. You see, when we refrain from brushing our tongue for prolonged periods of time, bacteria settles on the surface of or tongue and expanding its growth beyond control and until the point where it has spread to your entire mouth.
Naturally, a mouth filled with bacteria is bound to reek of a horridly foil odour. Studies support the fact that the bugs and bacteria that cause this foul odour are always located at the back of your tongue, which is why dentists always stress the practices of brushing the back of one’s tongue to eliminate all the bugs and bacteria that might be residing down there.

Very few people have heard about or experienced this rare tongue condition, however, it’s extremely easy to acquire and very painful to live with.
It can easily develop if your teeth and tongue is constantly getting stained with leftover food particles and remains of the drinks and meals that you devour, particularly nicotine, spinach and coffee.
Regardless of how many efforts we put in cleaning our teeth and making them spotless white, there will always be traces of tiny stains and food particles that will hide themselves and evade our toothbrush.
When the papillae on our tongue repeatedly gets stained from drink particles, like tea and coffee, along with the particles that we can’t brush away, the tongue begins to turn abnormally furry and black. The good news is, this condition is absolutely harmless, and it will vanish as soon as you start brushing your tongue regularly.
