Does it really exist?
Hairy tongue phenomenon is used to describe an abnormal coating on the top surface of the tongue.
It is a relatively common, harmless and temporary condition that occurs in around 13% of the population and occurs due to lack of stimulation & abrasion to the top side of the tongue and poor oral hygiene.
Individuals with a persistent coating on the tongue should consult their dentist or other trained oral health professional. In most instances proper oral hygiene with a toothbrush or tongue scraper will result in elimination of the build up. Hairy tongue that does not resolve so simply may be treated with medical or surgical treatment by qualified individuals.
