Why Should You Scrape Your Tongue?

What is a tongue scraper and why should it be used? A tongue scraper is an oral hygiene device designed to clean off bacteria and dead cells from the surface of your tongue. Film that develops on your tongue while you sleep can be an indicator of what is happening inside your body and can be related to many common health problems and can be a leading cause of bad breath.

By scraping your tongue daily, it will help improve:
– your breath
– your ability to taste
– dental health
– avoid toxins being reabsorbed into your body
– get to know your tongue

Don’t wait any longer! Start making this a part of your daily routine, preferably morning. Be gentle when you start and your tongue will get used to it very quickly. You will be amazed how much stuff will come off!

As always, please call our office if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you at your next dental visit and when you are here, don’t forget to ask your hygienist about tongue scraping!
