In brief: Analyze routines

If you brush 2x daily (including tongue) use a tongue scraper daily, floss every night, and use mouthrinse 2x daily and you see a dentist on a regular basis the yellow stuff on your tongue may go away.
You may also have a concurrent fungal infection, check with your dentist to see if he thinks an anti-fungal is appropriate. If your a smoker you may be stuck with the yellow until you quit.

In brief: Brush your tongue

Most of the stuff on your tongue is food debris.
Try using a tongue scraper or a toothbrush to remove it everyday. If this does not help or if you have pain, swelling, you need to sea dentist for an exam.
