In brief: Carbon Dioxide Laser

In most cases, simply brushing the tongue with a soft toothbrush, tongue scraper and good oral hygiene is sufficient to eliminate elongated papillae.
Or visit your dentist for carbon dioxide laser treatment for hairy tongue.

In brief: Use a tongue scraper

Brush your tongue at least times a day and you can also get a tongue scraper at the drug store.
Put it on the back of the tongue and slide it forward to clean the debris off your tongue. Rinsing with warm salt water will also help
