What Health Problems are related to Plaque on Your Tongue?

The plaque settled on the tongue can result in various problems such as gingivitis, periodontitis, and other gum diseases, alongside offensive mouth odour or bad breath.

One of the chief causes of periodontal disease is a bacterium that hides under the food and mucous layer settled on the tongue. This bacterium present in periodontal disease invades the bloodstream through damaged, bleeding gums, and may cause damage throughout the body, including the heart.

What Is Tongue Scraping?

Your tongue has a rough surface that traps minute food particles, which decay to form a bacterial film called plaque, which gives off an offensive odour. While mints, gums and mouthwashes can temporarily gloss over the problem by covering the odour, the tongue cleaner removes this film of bacteria, giving a much longer-lasting freshness to the mouth.

Many people are aware of the fact that metabolic byproducts and toxins are removed from the body through the coating of the tongue. Unfortunately, we are re-injesting most of this with our breakfast.

What Causes Your Bad Breath?

Clinical studies have demonstrated that odor-causing bacteria build-up on the tongue is a prime cause of bad breath and a potential contributor to other oral health problems such as gum disease.

Especially during sleep, the tongue is coated with a plaque film of bacteria and other odour causing compounds. The texture of the tongue is very conducive to housing this unwanted bacteria, which is why, fresh breath is difficult to maintain, even after brushing your teeth. Brushing your tongue with a toothbrush only stirs up this plaque film, without effectively removing it.

The American Dental Association News recently reported that halitosis experts agree that the dominant cause of bad breath is the bacteria on the tongue.

“When saliva collects in the mouth – particularly in depressions at the back of the tongue – and is digested by oral bacteria, powerful odors can result”. — Time Life, The Medical Advisor, Bad Breath, Causes 

The bacteria release odorous byproducts (known as Volatile Sulfur Compounds, or VSCs similar to the gasses released by a rotten egg) as they thrive on the tongue. These “stinkers” also arise from active gum disease. In fact, according to recent research, VSCs may even be the first factor in initiating gum disease.

While volatile sulphur compounds are the principle causative agents of bad breath, the bacteria that live in our mouths also produce other waste products, and some of these have their own unpleasant odors too. A few of these wastes are:

  • Cadaverine – the smell we associate with corpses
  • Putrescine – the compound responsible for much of the foul odor produced by decaying meat
  • Skatole – the characteristic smell of human fecal matter
  • Isovaleric acid – the smell of sweaty feet

Most people are surprised to discover that this wonderful mix of compounds emanates from the mouths of humans, and noone is an exception. Everyone has some level of these unpleasant compounds in their breath. Fortunately, however, low levels of these odorous compounds cannot be detected by the human nose. It’s only when the levels of these compounds become elevated, and others’ noses can detect them, that we have “bad breath”.

The diagram below illustrates how the harmful bacteria hiding under the coating of the tongue lead to bad breath and plaque:

Tongue coatings

The tongue is a rough surface that provides the bacteria with plenty of hiding places. When we eat, debris left over from food and normal mucus production build the “coating” on our tongues. This coating provides the bacteria with a “safe” hiding place. Why is it safe? Because the bacteria are anaerobic oxygen is lethal to them. So the bacteria, hidden in the safety of the tongues coating, do their “dirty work” releasing odourous gasses in the process.

This is the primary cause of halitosis. It also leads to increased risk of decay (especially root surface decay), and a decreased sense of taste.

A study done by Anne Bosy, co-founder of the Fresh Breath Clinic in Toronto, found that most people with bad breath do not have gum disease. Instead, she found that sulphur-producing bacteria live at the back of the tongue, bedding down under plaque and mucous. These bacteria are a source of halitosis.

A white film on the top of the tongue means there are millions of bacteria living there.

It is estimated that approximately 85% of all halitosis cases have their origin within the mouth; of these, 90% are caused by tongue residues. Previous studies have established that hydrogen sulfide and mercaptans are the primary components of halitosis.

Do you smoke, drink alcohol, take heart, sinus, birth control, or antidepressant medicines, or are over 55 years old? A positive answer to any one of these conditions means you have diminished salivary flow and are prone to bad breath. If you are dieting successfully, or your gum disease is active (bleeding gums) – you’re going to have bad breath!

Behavioral studies reveal that no one informs those with bad breath, often not even their spouse for fear of embarrassing them.

The latest shocking research associates the bacteria in our mouths to heart disease and other ailments:

“It is impossible to remove all the bacteria from the mouth because it is constantly under attack by the gram negative anaerobic bacteria which thrives in the anaerobic environment of the posterior dorsal villa of the tongue These anaerobic type bacteria include the likes of A. actinomycetemcomitans, B. forsythus, T. denticola, P. intermedia and P.gingivalis and are readily associated with periodontal disease”

The plaque settled on the tongue can result in various tooth problems such as gingivitis, periodontitis, and other gum diseases besides offensive mouth odour or bad breath.

  • One of the chief causes of periodontal disease is a bacterium that hides under the food and mucous layer settled on the tongue. This bacterium present in periodontal disease invades the bloodstream through damaged, bleeding gums, and may cause damage throughout the body, including the heart.

Bleeding Gums

  • Many recent studies have shown that several of the bacteria in the mouth can enter the bloodstream and promote blood clots and damage heart muscle tissue. The bacteria Clostridium perfingens, which is commonly found in the oral cavity, is suspected of being one of the major culprits .

Other research suggests that newborns with low birth weight may be associated with the toxic byproducts released by the bacteria from gum infections in pregnant women. There are also ongoing studies that link the worsening symptoms of both diabetes and periodontal disease.

As well, bacteria found in the mouth can end up in the airways and increase the risk of complications associated with chronic lung conditions and respiratory disease.

Many people are aware of the fact that metabolic byproducts and toxins are removed from the body through the coating of the tongue. Unfortunately, we are re-injesting most of this with our breakfast.

The Problems You Face In Dealing With Bad Breath

A recent study showed that mouthwashes (even “antibacterial” brands), gums, and breath mints merely mask the problem. They only work for a short time (an hour at most) because the bacteria are still alive and well.

Obviously, mints, gum, sprays, and mouthwashes are poor cover-ups for bad breath, although people in American alone purchased over 1 billion dollars worth last year.

Even if you are using an antibacterial mouth-wash, the bacteria are comfortable lurking in the safety under the coating of the tongue. All of the mouthwashes currently available over the counter add to the “compost pile” on the tongue, instead of reducing it.

More importantly, the rinses or pastes that have an antimicrobial effect work by changing the PH and/or another biochemical component related to one facet of the oral environment. Alcohol is probably the worst rinse ingredient because of its drying effect on the oral tissues (actually, this promotes the growth of anaerobic bacteria) and the possibility that long-term use may cause oral cancers.

Stop wasting your money on mouthwash, gum, mints, and sprays. One pack of mints a day (at 30 pence each) will cost you £109.50 every year, and most people spend a lot more than that. That’s OK if you like mints, but if you really want to solve the problem at the root, you must do it another way.

You see, the way we have been dealing with bad breath and oral hygiene has not kept pace with the times. In an age of instant global communication and deep space exploration, you would expect that we would have made much more progress in cleaning our mouths.

Think about it for a moment. Why do you use a toothbrush? If the same results could be achieved with a mouthwash as a toothbrush, then noone would bother with a brush, they would just rinse and go. We all know that it would not work, so why would we expect the tongue to be clean after a “quick rinse” of chemical-laden mouthwash.

Recent studies have shown up to 90% of all cases of halitosis (bad breath) can be contributed to the decomposing of the coating on the tongue, and harmful bacteria that are not removed by brushing, flossing, or gargling alone.

Our “normal” hygiene routine doesn’t work against the bacteria on the tongue because we simply are not properly cleaning our tongues.

Some dentists teach patients to brush their tongues with their toothbrushes. A drawback of this is that a moist toothbrush will continue to hold the bacteria. Unless you are willing to throw out your toothbrush on a continuous basis, we don’t recommend this practice.

As plaque is to the teeth and gums, coating is to the tongue. Brushing alone does not solve the problem. Although it is a step in the right direction, it merely loosens the coating. It does not remove it.

Don't do tongue brushing

Brushing the tongue does little more than mash the bacteria and plaque deeper into the filliform, without addressing the real problem at the posterior part of the tongue.

Now that you know the cause of the problem, the next step is to know how to solve it, rather than just treating the symptoms with mouthwash and breath aids.

Here’s What You Need To Solve The Bad Breath Problem For Good

Bad breath and the other mouth and gum problems can be treated easily and scientifically!

Effectively cleaning the tongue is as essential as flossing and brushing your teeth to maintain fresh breath and a healthy mouth, teeth, and gums.

Removing the coating is crucial to killing the harmful bacteria that cause these problems.  The key is to remove the coating on the tongue properly.

A Tongue Scraper

Introducing the Tongue Cleaner – a tool designed specifically for this purpose

  • Cleaning the tongue removes harmful bacteria and toxic metabolic substances of the gut which are produced over night and during the process of digestion and deposited on the tongue.

You can see it during scraping. This white, yellowish, black, bluish or different colour coating is a waste product which should be cleaned away every day.

You’ll be amazed at how quick and easy the tongue cleaner is to use. Once you have used it for a few days, you won’t want to be without it again.

Look How Easy It Is To Use Your Tongue  Cleaner

Cleaning your tongue should be done first thing in the morning, before drinking or eating. This maximizes removal of any digestive toxins from the tongue.

  • Hold the tongue cleaner gently in both hands, and opening the mouth, place the curved part as far back on the tongue as is comfortable without gagging. Gently pull the cleaner forward over the surface of the tongue to the tip of the tongue.

Rinse any debris under running water and repeat the scraping action 3, 4, or 5 times, ensuring the full surface of the tongue is cleaned. When finished, thoroughly rinse the tongue cleaner under running water and hang to dry in your toothbrush holder.

copper tongue cleaner usage

We use metal because they are impervious to bacteria and are more comfortable and gentle on the tongue than plastic.

Although such a simple looking device, don’t be fooled by it’s appearance, it’s perfect for the job. A simple practical design that has stood the test of time. We see no need to reinvent the wheel, neither to change the tongue cleaner. This device has been used in India for hundreds of years.

The glories of the tongue cleaner are well known by those who use them. I’ve used my own daily for over 24 years, and my 18 and 14 year old children use theirs everyday too. I personally know people who have been happily using them for over 40 years!

What You Should Expect From Your Tongue Cleaner

  • Tongue cleaning is fast and only takes a few seconds
  • Dramatically better oral hygiene and health, daily tongue cleaning is the safest and most effective choice
  • Reduces susceptibility to heart disease and other diseases. In terms of general health, there is great incentive to mechanically remove the bulk of the harmful bacteria in the mouth by cleaning the tongue
  • The use of a tongue cleaner will eliminate about 80% of volatile sulphur compounds.
  • Studies show the tongue cleaner to be 700% more effective than a brush in removing bacteria from the tongue
  • Reduces bacteria that cause sore throats (Strep bacteria)
  • Cleaning your tongue is comfortable – Smooth, non-serrated edge ensures gentle, but effective cleaning.  The arms get progressively wider apart. This ensures comfort while cleaning and optimum surface area coverage with each stroke
  • Restores your taste sensations
  • Cleaning the tongue stimulates all the internal organs which have nerve endings there, and thus improves digestion and elimination
  • Pre-curved shape gives precise control  – non-gagging shape
  • Slows the growth of plaque by removing the coating on the tongue
  • Long-lasting metal – Special metallic construction provides the necessary cleaning edge that plastic cannot provide. This edge is the key to effective cleaning
  • Narrow tip facilitates cleaning middle and posterior portion of the tongue – the favourite hiding place of VSCs! The edge cleans the fissures in the tongue
  • Durable, ergonomic design promotes consistent use for a lifetime
  • Cleaning your tongue will not only reduce the build-up of material at the back of the mouth, but it will also lower the amount of bacteria in your mouth, which will improve the overall health of your gums and teeth
  • Tongue cleaning at night, before going to sleep, removes the food particles that would have formed the bacteria and plaque overnight, which would have resulted in morning bad breath. Some bacteria may still persist when a person sleeps, however, when the tongue has been scraped at bedtime, this problem is minimal
  • Much lesser tendency to gag while using a scraper than a brush
  • Chemical-free – better for you and the environment
  • Takes less time than using a rinse, works better and costs less
  • Used and recommended by dentists and hygienists

Here’s What The Experts Have To Say

“Tongue-cleaning is very important in Ayurveda, The dirt which is collected at the root of the tongue creates obstructions in respiration and produces a foul smell; hence one should scrape one’s tongue (from Caraka Samhita, Sutrasthana, V, 75)- This process not only cleans the tongue, but also activates the salivary glands and cleans and revitalizes the throat. It saves you from throat and mouth infections. This practice is highly recommended for those who complain of a frequent bad throat.” — Dr. Vinod Verma, Ayurveda A Way of Life

“Good oral hygiene will take care of most bad breath Mouthwashes, mints, and chewing gum are only temporary cover-ups for bad breath.” — Time Life, The Medical Advisor, Bad Breath, Treatment

“The usual cause of bad breath is bacteria growing on the tongue, and sometimes around the gum lines, too. There are a couple of simple ways to take care of the problem. First, try a tongue scraper. This is a metal instrument that you use to scrape your tongue once or twice a day, cleaning off the bacteria I wouldn’t pay much attention to the claims made about mouthwashes like Scope or Listerine. These germicidal formulas may help, but they often don’t penetrate into the crevices of the tongue.” — Dr. Andrew Weil, www.drweil.com, Q & A Help for Halitosis?

“Cleaning the tongue, which many people neglect, is very important A tongue blade, a device used in the Middle East and India to scrape the tongue, may be helpful.” — Time Life, The Medical Advisor, Bad Breath, Treatment

“Once I was traveling in India and wanted to buy some souvenirs for my family and friends. I visited the local pharmacy and discovered a utensil designed to scrape the moss from the tongue. Indian people scrape the moss from their tongues so that they can eliminate accumulated waste and better appreciate the taste of their own cuisine! I was truly impressed. I bought many tongue scrapers that day and sent them to friends with the encouragement to scrape their tongues.”  — Ohasi, Reading the Body: Ohasi’s Book of Oriental Diagnosis

There has been a re-awakening of interest and focus on the posterior dorsal surface of the tongue as a site for malodor production. Reviews and papers that examined reduction of oral VSC by various dental hygiene procedures, strongly suggests that keeping the tongue clean is of major importance in reduction of oral malodor. The tongue provides an excellent harboring place for anaerobic organisms to proliferate (even in a patient with “good oral health”) and to create malodors and bad tastes for the patient. — Research Discussions: First International Workshop on Oral Malodor

A clinical research group has just requested samples for field evaluations. We are confident their report will be similar to the only other evaluation of current tongue cleaners, ranking tongue scrapers #1. You can recommend the tongue scraper with confidence and your patients will appreciate you for it. Bad Breath Research Perspectives by: Mel Rosenberg

The Effects of Daily Mechanical Tongue Scraping vs. Daily Mechanical Tongue Brushing on Bacterial Flora, Results:
Ronald E. Mangie, B.S. Bacteriology, D.D.S

  1. Bacterial counts:
    Individuals who scraped their tongues displayed a significantly lower total Strep Salivarius count than individuals who brushed their tongues. Furthermore, no apparent damage to the tongue tissue or the taste buds was observed
  2. Clinical studies:
    The tongues of the patients who scraped were significantly cleaner and pinker than the tongues of patients who brushed. Additionally, the individuals who brushed their tongues often complained of gagging, choking and other discomforts, while the number of these complaints from the individuals who scraped their tongues were significantly less
  3. Cleaner Taste:
    A related significant discovery of the study is that those subjects who scraped their tongues reported a cleaner, fresher taste in the mouth, and a marked improvement in the taste of food. Similar sensations were not reported by the subjects who brushed their tongues

Now That You Know What It Is, How Can You Get Your Tongue Cleaner?
