Features of Hygienic Care for Lingua Plicata

Keywords: lingua plicata, tongue hygiene, contamination with Candida microflora

Hygienic care of lingua plicata is of particular relevance, since the degree of microbial contamination of the tongue folds is a key factor in initiation and progression of non-specific glottitises. The aim of the work was to study the effectiveness of hygienic modes of tongue care using "Albadent" balm-rinse in patients having a fissured tongue. Three subgroups of patients were included in the study; patients of the 1st subgroup had their tongues treated with a toothbrush pad, patients of the 2nd subgroup rinsed it with Albadent balm twice, and patients of the 3rd subgroup treated their tongues twice with an irrigator with Albadent balm solution. A comparative assessment of care regimens showed that in patients of the 1st subgroup the hygienic condition of the tongue improved by 2.7 times, and the prevalence of Candida albicans decreased twice. The patients reported unpleasant «scratching» sensations in the tongue after its mechanical treatment. In patients of the 2nd subgroup, the depth of the folds decreased, and hyperemia in the bottom of the folds decreased in half of the observed patients. The hygienic condition of the tongue improved by 2.2 times, and the prevalence of Candida albicans decreased by 2.5 times. Patients reported a pleasant freshness sensation in the tongue after treatment, continuing after spitting for 60-90 minutes. In patients of the 3rd subgroup, the depth of the folds changed insignificantly in the direction of decrease, and hyperemia of the bottom was not detected. The hygienic condition of the tongue improved twice, and the prevalence of Candida albicans decreased by 2 times. Patients reported a pleasant freshness sensation in the tongue after rinsing, continuing after spitting for 40–60 minutes.
