JALINGO – Dr Likunga Atiku, a dentist and staff of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital, has advised the people of Taraba to always brush their tongue while brushing their teeth to prevent mouth odour.
Atiku, who gave the advice on Wednesday in Jalingo in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) said that both the tongue and teeth should always be kept clean.
He said that only a few people remember to brush their tongue while brushing their teeth.
“It is important to brush the tongue as it produced saliva which helped the digestive process,’’ he said, and urged the people to wash their mouth regularly especially after eating. (NAN)
