It is all very well to brush their teeth, but the tongue   also serves as a nest for bacteria. Your tongue  is like a carpet. Between each papilla  (equivalent to carpet fibers) can accumulate debris and bacteria.  Depending on your preferences, you can use a regular toothbrush or a tongue scraper   (ask the pharmacy).  With a  daily tongue brushing ,

•With chlorexidine (sold by prescription only). Good and effective at reducing plaque  and gum disease, this type of bath mouth is not recommended for long-term use  because of side effects.  The often contain alcohol which could be more irritating to dry your mouth. It is  preferable to :

•take it diluted with water,

•Opting for brands without alcohol

•simply you rinse with water

the use of mouthwashes does not replace flossing and brushing. You have to remove   mechanically the bacteria responsible for the smell and not to perfume it, if not  the  smell will return very quickly.
