Is it okay to clean tongue with a toothbrush?

Q.
I use atoothbrush that has bits on the back to clean the tongue. When I do so I try to get my tongue properly clean but when I go past say the middle area of my tongue it makes me gag. Do you have any tips for cleaning the tongue?
A.
hi many thanks for your email, there are many other devices you can use to help clean your tongue such as tongue scrapers which i personally find easier to use than the toothbrush varieties.
