Stainless Steel Tongue Scraper in Cotton Pouch
This surgical grade stainless steel tongue scraper is an excellent tool that helps to clean your tongue. While tongue scraping has been around since ancient times, it has recently become more popular due to its oral hygiene and fresh breath benefits.
In addition to brushing your teeth and flossing, cleaning your tongue helps to keep bad bacteria, as well as food debris and dead cells that may accumulate there, from causing trouble. In fact, studies suggest that tongue scraping can remove bacteria and improve bad breath more than brushing.
Bad bacteria has been linked to such health issues as periodontal problems, plaque build up, tooth decay and gum disease.
TONGUE SCRAPING BENEFITS:
- Improved taste: scraping off the surface of your tongue helps to clear your palette.
- Reduces dental decay: research study showed that using a tongue scraper twice a day for seven days reduced the overall incidence of Mutans streptococci and Lactobacilli bacteria in the mouth, which are known to cause dental decay and bad breath.
- Fresher breath: tongue scraping helps reduce odor-causing bacteria that lives on your tongue.
- Improved overall health: scraping your tongue can improve oral hygiene, which helps prevent other issues like heart disease, cancer and more.
HOW TO USE:
It is recommended to do tongue scraping in the morning on an empty stomach after brushing your teeth, as morning is the best time to remove toxins that have accumulated overnight.
- Wash the tongue scraper with warm water.
- Stick out your tongue and gently set the rounded end of the tongue scraper at the back of your tongue.
- Using handles, slowly pull the tongue scraper toward the tip of your tongue. The tongue should be gently scraped from back to front 5 to 10 strokes.
- After each scrape, use water or a tissue to remove debris from the scraper.
- Wash the tongue scraper with hot water and soap if needed, dry, and store in a clean area. The entire process usually takes one-two minutes. Repeat as needed throughout the day.
