It Takes Two to Tongue-go: You Should Clean Your Tongue, Too

When it comes to oral hygiene, most people take their precious time cleaning their teeth. Some would even make it a point to brush every after meal. But, despite this religious cleaning ritual, many of them still develop bad breath. Even though they take extreme care in brushing their teeth, they tend to forget to clean their tongue too on a regular basis.

Hotbed of Bacteria

The human tongue serves different purposes. For one, it helps break up food for easier digestion. It manipulates and moves the particles towards the teeth. It also adds to the sensory experience of eating because it is the primary organ for tasting food. As it makes contact with virtually everything you put into your mouth, it easily becomes a hotbed for bacteria. This may eventually lead to bad breath. In fact, the primary cause of malodour in the mouth is attributed to unclean tongue.

Scraping and Brushing

One of the recommended ways of cleaning your tongue is to scrape the whitish-grey layer of debris and microorganisms. If you do not have a tongue scraper, a brush should do the job. The problem here, however, is that some people gag when scraping using implements not designed for such task. This results to an unpleasant experience, which can easily discourage anyone.

Luckily, there are tongue-cleaning implements that specifically remove unwanted bacteria from the tongue surface. Our TongueDetox, for one, is designed to scrape off food debris without inconvenience. Once used daily, it can give help you have a healthier mouth and fresher breath.

All-Around Protection

So, if you want to prevent plaque build-up and eliminate bad breath – causing bacteria, give more attention to your tongue-cleaning habit. Apart from the proven effective treatments like Invisalign and teeth cleaning, make sure you have regular tongue cleaning.
