When you’re brushing and flossing your teeth do you show your tongue any toothbrush love? If not, you should start. Food particles that form plaque buildup don’t just sit on your teeth, they harbor on your tongue as well. To improve your dental health, finish your dental care routine with a tongue cleaning. Our doctors at All Coast Dental recommend investing in a tongue scraper to reap the maximum benefits.
Brushing your tongue is effective in reducing bad breath and even tooth damage. However, a tongue scraper provides a more thorough cleaning. Tongue scrapers are affordable and can be purchased at your local drugstore. This tool is used to scrape the bacteria that food leaves behind on the tongue. Cleaning your tongue is just as important as cleaning your teeth because you are removing harmful bacteria that can lead to decay.
