When asked recently, “What would be your most important tip for your patients?,” Taylor shared the following:
“Don’t forget to clean your tongue! Clean the surface of your tongue daily. By using a professional tongue cleaner you remove countless bacteria that otherwise live, particularly on the rougher top surface of your tongue. These can contribute to bad breath (halitosis) and negatively affect your dental health.” ~ Taylor
