Tongue is actually the most important and sensitive part of your mouth, the tongue helps the process of chewing, swallowing, speech and sense of taste. If we do not take care of our mouth, we can get the most common tongue diseases.

Main symptoms of tongue diseases

  1. Yellowish color
  2. White color
  3. Brittle tongue
  4. Bad breath
  5. Taste problems

Most of the tongue diseases can develop into candidiasis, halitosis and tonsil stones, but a tongue infection can be related to other oral parts as the teeth or gums.

Why is so important to the care of your tongue? There are many reasons, for example, your tongue helps you to feel the flavors of every meal you eat, and also it serves to speak properly.
