Treatments For Scalloped Tongue
Is a scalloped tongue serious? Indentations go away when i move my tongue around, etc, but am worried about this...
My tongue has been scalloped it's not going away and it feels as if I cleaned my tongue to much, and the top of my tongue has a very thin white layer.
Normal: very normal for lots of patients. the tongue = very resilient area & the white coating is mostly caused by debris, bacteria & dead cells getting lodged between the enlarged & sometimes inflamed papillae.
