Dentist 's  Response

your tongue gets the coating very fast and that coating smells bad.

this is normal but amount of coating depends from person to person.

I suggest use tongue cleaner regularly two times a day along with brushing.
for fresh breath use mouthwash at the interval of half an hour from brushing.
