White Tongue Bumps

White tongue bumps(sometimes called “lie bumps”) can be freaky. They sometimes appear overnight or in the middle of the day without you suspecting a thing. Don’t worry–gremlins haven’t been tampering with your mouth, planting these little white bumps. The only monster you should be wary of is your own hygiene.

Where do white tongue bumps come from?

White tongue bumps are most often the result of overly acidic, spicy, or hot foods that irritate your taste buds. Those taste buds become inflamed and grow little white heads to show how angry they are.

Other times, white tongue bumps are canker sores. Canker sores come from all sorts of things like extra stress, imbalanced hormones, or coming in contact with another someone’s canker sore (remember all that kissing the other night?).

Then there are other white tongue bumps caused by bacterial infections on the surface of your tongue. That means your tongue is dirty, and it has finally decided to complain about not being treated properly (conveniently in the form of white bumps).

How do you treat white tongue bumps?

Some types of white tongue bumps are very painful, while others are numb to most feeling. If you are one of the unlucky people with a painful white tongue bump, you may want to get an over-the-counter numbing agent to help dull the throbbing.

In the mean time, avoid foods with high acidity like citrus fruit and anything with tomatoes. Acid will irritate your white bump even more, causing extra pain. You may also want to stay away from foods with sharp edges (chips, crackers, etc.) that could cut your mouth and the white bump on your tongue.

Generally, white tongue bumps heal on their own in about 4 to 10 days. If for some reason they don’t, or if the pain in your tongue increases, see a doctor. He or she may be able to diagnose exactly what is wrong with your tongue and give you more treatment options.

For those white tongue bumps that spring from a dirty tongue, the best treatment is to clean your tongue regularly.

How do you clean your tongue?

The Orabrush allows you to clean your tongue, harmlessly and effectively removing gunk from the surface of your tongue that can cause infections and bad breath. The soft micro-fiber bristles on the head of the Orabrush pull residue from your tongue.

All that bacteria removed makes for a happier tongue with fewer white bumps in the future.

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."
