Have you ever had a conversation with someone only to realize immediately afterwards that your breath smells terrible? You have brushed, flossed, rinsed, and your breath still stinks! Have you ever found yourself with this embarrassing problem?
Over 80% of bad breath originates in the mouth. There are millions of bacteria on your tongue that cannot be brushed off with your toothbrush. The deep grooves and hair like projections on your tongue, known as papillae, also hold food particles. Imagine last night’s dinner, sitting in a moist environment at 98.6 degrees for 8-12 hours. It’s going to smell bad!
Most everyone knows the importance of brushing, flossing, and proper dental for maintaining oral health. A tongue scraper is a necessary tool in the fight against plaque, bacteria, and bad breath! You cannot get a clean tongue by brushing it with a toothbrush. A toothbrush is made to clean the harder, solid structure of your teeth and gums. Your tongue is soft and squishy. The tongue scraper gently lifts and removes odor causing debris and bacteria from the grooves of your tongue.
Daily tongue scraping is key to fresh breath! Your dentist or hygienist will be happy to demonstrate proper oral hygiene including tongue scraping for you. Don’t rely on mouthwash, gum, or mints to just cover up your bad breath. Eliminate bad breath with this easy technique!
