Tongue
by: Dr. Thomas Rohrer

We don't always think of our tongue and its importance unless we burn it or bite it by accident.

The tongue is one of the most important muscles in our body. It helps us swallow, taste, talk and more.

We strongly recommend our patients to have a yearly screening for oral cancer, which includes a close look at their tongue, as the tongue is often where oral Cancer seems to start.

In Chinese medicine, the tongue is a great tool to help diagnose illness. Chinese medicine healers look at the coating of the tongue which tells them about possible deficiencies or even alert them of some organs' malfunctions.

In the dental field, we recommend our patients to scrape their tongue once a day as it can hold some bacteria that can cause tooth decay.

You can use a tongue scrapper or even your tooth brush to keep your tongue free of these unwanted bacteria. Keep your tongue healthy !!!!
