Tongue scraping is just as important as brushing your teeth! I’ll say it again for the people at the back: Tongue scraping is just as important as brushing your teeth!
It takes less that 2 minutes but has a HUGE impact on your overall health- your body will thank you for it!
The build up of bacteria on the surface of your tongue not only causes bad breath, but also soft plague which can lead to tooth decay. Gross, right?
“Why can’t I just use my toothbrush?”
Sadly, the soft bristles of a toothbrush aren’t able to remove microorganisms effectively. They can only be scraped off with a rigid tool like a tongue scraper!
A toothbrush can remove up to 45% of bacteria, but the trusty tongue scraper can remove up to 75%. I know right?!
Benefits You Will Love :
Wake up and scrape!- the minute you wake up your body starts to produce more saliva. This causes you to re-ingest the bacteria that has accumulated on your tongue overnight. Before you brush your teeth, scrape from the back of your tongue, pulling the tool gently forward. Repeat a few times. Rinse your scraper after each use!
