Your tongue can harbor countless amounts of bacteria each day. While this is quite unfortunate, it is common. This is why it’s important to clean your tongue regularly. Many people clean their tongues with tongue scrapers.

Tongue scrapers can be beneficial for you, your smile, and your oral health, and Dr. David Trebisovsky and our dental team are happy to tell you why.

Tongue scrapers can help with bad breath. This is because it cleans that bacteria that gather on your tongue. When you use a tongue scraper, the odorous bacteria will be scraped away and your breath will be freshened.

Tongue scrapers can make your food more flavorful. This is because mucus and other substances gather on your tongue and block the taste buds. This can make it difficult to taste food. When you clean your tongue with the scraper, the mucus will be washed away and your taste buds will be exposed.

Tongue scrapers can also boost your oral and overall health. This is because when the bacteria on your tongue get washed away regularly, the body doesn’t absorb the toxins and the teeth don’t get attacked by decay-causing germs. Scraping the tongue can boost your overall immune function as well as prevent dental issues like tooth decay, gum disease, and plaque buildup.
