Oral Hygiene: Why You Should Use a Tongue Scraper

Posted .

Are you trying to decide whether to use a tongue scraper or not? If so, our dentist, Dr. Annette Moranda, is more than happy to help you. Although a tongue scraper isn’t as important as a toothbrush or dental floss, it can still offer many benefits. Those benefits are:

-Tongue scrapers can help you have the pristine breath you deserve by preventing halitosis (which is bad breath).

-Tongue scrapers can boost the function of your taste buds. This is because they remove the mucus from your tongue and uncover the buds and opens their pores.

-Tongue scrapers can boost your immunity by removing toxins before they have a chance to completely enter the body.

-Tongue scrapers can help your teeth and gums because they remove bacteria that promote cavities and gum disease.

-Tongue scrapers can help you produce more saliva, which is beneficial because saliva keeps your mouth clean and helps you digest.
