White Tongue Causes Problems

Have you ever noticed a white coating on the surface on your tongue? If so, then you may be suffering from halitosis (bad breath). The white tongue coating is a result of bacteria, debris, and dead cells getting stuck between the inflamed papillae (finger like projections) on the surface of your tongue.
Papillae inflammation is caused by:

Poor oral hygiene.
Dry mouth.
Dehydration.
Congenital heart disease.
Smoking or tobacco use.
Alcohol.
Mouth Breathing.
Fever.

In addition to brushing your tongue, I highly recommend using a tongue scraper. They can be found in almost any store where toothbrushes or toothpaste are sold. Try it and see the difference!
