Dry Tongue

Split, cracked, fissured, and dry as the Sahara Desert–a dry tongue is not only uncomfortable, but it can also be a sign of more serious mouth and health problems. If you have a dry tongue, you may want to learn about some of the causes of a dry tongue.

Causes of a Dry Tongue:

A dry tongue can be a symptom of dehydration. You may be dehydrated because you have been sweating excessively, have a fever, diarrhea, blood loss, or have been vomiting. These could be related to sickness or just spending too much time in the sun.

If you smoke tobacco or drink alcohol you are more susceptible to having a dry tongue because these products affect your saliva production. If you salivate more than usual while using tobacco or alcohol products, your salivary glands can be aggravated and may not produce necessary saliva later.

If you continuously breathe with your mouth open either while awake or asleep, you may have a dry tongue and dry mouth.

Some medications can cause a dry tongue and dry mouth. These medications are usually taken orally, but they can treat many different types of diseases. Check your medication labels or speak to a doctor about the possibility of a dry tongue side effect from your medicines if you think this may be a cause.

And if you think your medication may be causing your dry tongue, also consider that some diseases or sicknesses can cause a dry tongue just as easily. Some of the most common medical conditions that cause dry tongue are diabetes, anemia, HIV, and Parkinson’s disease.

Cures for a Dry Tongue:

Many of these causes of dry tongue take time to heal, disappear, or fix. In the mean time drink plenty of water and other liquids that can replenish and refresh a dry tongue.

Be sure to use proper oral hygiene techniques, too. Brushing your teeth and tongue can provide a healthy environment for a dry tongue recovery.

If you aren’t brushing your tongue, do it. Brushing your tongue¬†can prevent harmful bacteria on your tongue from drying up and causing infections.

The Orabrush is the best tongue brush on the market, designed with microfiber bristles to pull gunk from the surface of your tongue instead of moving it around like a toothbrush does.

A dry tongue deserves to be pink, supple, and happy again. Give it a chance with water, good oral hygiene, and an Orabrush.

Orabrush and Tongue Foam—The world's best bad breath system.

Better Than a Toothbrush!

Ultra-soft, pointed bristles reach deep into the uneven crevices of your tongue and loosen stinky bacteria. These bristles are designed after the surgeon's scrub brush, the same brush they use to clean bacteria from their hands before they cut you open. (Toothbrush bristles, however, are designed for the smooth surfaces of your teeth, not your tongue.) The scraper then collects and removes the bacteria and residue generated from brushing, helping cure bad breath.

    "[Dr. Bob] knew that toothbrushes, made for hard surfaces, would not work as well on tongues. He had researched ways to clean salmonella off raw chicken and learned it took flexible bristles to pry the bacteria from soft folds. Based on that, he hatched the idea for the Orabrush. It has soft, rubbery bristles for scraping across the tongue, back to front."
