Having a white tongue rarely indicates anything serious but a white tongue can disrupt your daily life quite a bit, you don't want to laugh with your mouth open and you don't want people standing to close when you are talking to them. It might not be dangerous but it is annoying and it does tell you something about your health.
Having a white tongue can be an indicator of a low immune system. This has everything to do with bacteria and fungi that are naturally present on your skin, mucous membrane and through out your body. Usually this bacteria and fungi live in harmony in and on your body. Yet if your immune system is low the balance between them can be disrupted which causes the whiteness on your tongue.
It is not serious but in some cases a white tongue can be caused by serious disease like AIDS. The whiteness can also occur when you are taking antibiotics or undergoing radical treatment like chemotherapy.
