The tongue coating is a whitish or yellowish mass that is in most cases embedded in the back of the tongue. The tongue is one of the most important organs in our body, as it is what makes us taste, swallow, speak and sing.

Generally, the tongue coating is formed when good hygiene is not done on the tongue, this fact can affect children and adults. It can cause bad breath and even change the taste of food, it can also compromise the health of the oral cavity. It can cause changes in the oral flora, causing cavities and tartar to appear. Tongue coating can also have other causes:

  • Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption;
  • Dehydration;
  • injuries;
  • Side effects of some medications;
  • Bacterial infections like the herpes virus.

In most cases, tongue coating is temporary and not serious, but it is important to pay attention because it can also be a symptom of some disease, including gastritis. The first step is to look for a dentist for an effective diagnosis, in some cases the dentist can prescribe medicine depending on the patient’s condition. But for the most part, treatment is done through healthy oral hygiene habits.

  • Brush your teeth three times a day;
  • Use dental floss;
  • Brushing the tongue with a brush or lingual scrapers;
  • Avoid long periods of fasting and hydrate well;

So that this problem does not come to visit your life, the ideal is to pay special attention to oral hygiene, using a soft brush so as not to damage the tongue and gums. It is also essential to spend at least every six months at the dentist, so diagnosis and treatment is easier, avoiding possible embarrassment. A healthy tongue should be pink for the most part, with small amounts of coating.
