Hi there, Generally use of baby brushes are recommended for teeth and tongue cleaning. If coated tongue use of effervescent vitamin C tablet (one quarter will be fine) can be tried (Take is directly over tongue and let it dissolve in mouth). Vitamin C gargles can be also done. In case you see patches which might be infection take expert medical advise. Regards
