If white plaque is in the central part of the tongue, this is due to the appearance of various malfunctions of the stomach, in particular gastritis and ulcers. If the plaque has a rather fine texture, then the disease is in its infancy.
If plaque formed on the sides of the tongue, it means that it is a precursor of lung diseases, as well as various urological diseases, in particular nephritis.
If the plaque is at the base of the tongue, it means that a large amount of toxins in the intestine has accumulated in the body, and the kidneys also do not work well.
If plaque is located in the middle part of the tongue, the liver or pancreas fails.
If white bloom on the tongue has a subtle texture and light color, then you should not worry too much. Especially if after a certain time it passes. This can lead to various bad habits (smoking, alcohol), poor oral hygiene and effects on the language of certain foods. All these problems can be solved independently, without the help of a specialist.
