it is a sign of dehydration. Just drink a bit more water and continue brushing teeth and it should be gone soon enough. It could also simply be a build up of bacteria. Again, drinking water, using mouthwash (listen to the adverts- only 1/3 mouth is cleaned by brushing) and by brushing your teeth which ytou say you already do.

I got this info off a medical website on google so it should be accurate.

if it hurts at all it is probably oral thrush

if not then it is either symptoms of internal yeast infection in your gut/colon which is will show through the tounge and/or you have poor digestion

scraping/cleaning tounge will not do that much good. the problem is internal.

also if it due to yeast then taking antibiotics will probably just make it worse ..just to warn you
