Cures for bad breath
Tests that revealed truth
The tests have often revealed that the smell of the anterior portion of a person's tongue is usually less offensive than the smell found emanating from the posterior part. The reason for this is related to the fact that the anterior portion of the tongue is somewhat self-cleansing and therefore less likely to harbor large numbers of odor producing bacteria. Many tongue functions require that the anterior portion of the tongue touches firmly against the hard palate. This friction produces a cleansing action, therefore preventing any significant bacterial accumulation.
Other methods of curing bad breath
The posterior portion of the tongue in comparison only rubs up against the palate relatively gently during tongue movements. This soft palate contact does not provide enough friction to produce any significant cleansing. For these reason it is typically the posterior aspect of the tongue that is found to harbor the bacteria that cause a person's bad breath, and thus the posterior tongue is the most important area to clean. There are various methods you can use to clean the posterior portion of your tongue. Each of the techniques though has the same goal, to scrape away the bacteria and debris that have accumulated on your tongue's surface. No matter whichever method of tongue cleaning one chooses to use, one should always try to clean as far back on your tongue as possible. One should not be surprised finding themselves having an active gag reflex. Gagging is a natural reaction, but with time this reflex should diminish.
