During Ramadan the fasting process can take its toll on the whole body, and especially the mouth. Dry mouth, bad breath, cracked lips, bleeding gums, tongue coating, these are just some of the oral effects of fasting.
Method of tongue cleansing:
- Draw the tongue scraper down from as far back as is comfortable.
- 3 strokes right side, middle and left side from back to front.
- You may need to start at the tip of the tongue for a few days till you condition your body to the sensation.
- This is more effective than a tooth brush, even the ones with tongue cleaning parts to them. And remember, breathe.
