Mint Toothpaste to help with a burnt tongue

Applying toothpaste on a tongue burn is a really easy and such a simple remedy. I seem to have burnt my tongue a fair bit recently (never have the patience to wait until my coffee cools!) I found this remedy on the internet and it really does surprisingly help. The mint cools and soothes the burnt area, plus it may even leave your mouth feeling a little fresher! And the taste of the toothpaste helps distract from the pain.

What You'll Need

  • Mint toothpaste (fluoride free)

What You'll Do

  • Dab burnt area with a paper towel or some tissue to get rid of most of the moisture (very softly as the area will be sore)
  • Apply a small amount of toothpaste all over the burnt area
  • Try to keep the tongue out of the mouth so the toothpaste drys (so basically have you mouth open for as long as you can stand it, at least 10+ seconds)
  • Wash toothpaste off tongue and rinse mouth with cold water

Tips & Warnings

  • Remember, this is only for minor burnt tongue episodes! For more serious burns you should probably talk to your doctor.
