For a year now my tongue is always white looking. It is not fungal as has been tested for that quite a different times. One doctor said it is from my acid reflux and another doctor said it is from post nasal drip. Also my tongue gets suction to the roof of my mouth when I sleep. I started that ever since I got my 1st crown and got TMJ pain. In the past whenever my tongue turned white like this it was only for about a week and my tummy was upset at the same time. But would go back to being pink again when the tummy ache went away. Well this is been over an year and for most of the part my tummy is not upset. I've changed my diet and at the moment have the acid reflux under control. Does anybody else have a white tongue? It is the top part, the sides are pink. What is weird is if I swish baking soda and water in my mouth my tongue looks normal but in a short time it goes back to being white. Also when I brush my teeth the toothpaste makes it look even whiter. I do not use any whitening toothpaste, it is the sensodyne because of sensitive teeth. I can't use mouth wash as I so allergic to many things. I really could use anybody's suggestions and help here. So far the doctors don't seem really concern after the tests come back negative. It is so frustrating-maybe the stress is doing it. Thanks so much!
