The tongue is usually cleaned with the toothbrush itself or the back of the toothbrush, which is often specially grooved for this purpose. A tongue scraper is much more convenient, effective and certainly nicer than a standard toothbrush. What are the benefits?
Cleaning the tongue is a practice popular in Ayurveda. It is believed to rid the body of toxins and strengthen the immune system. Even if you don’t follow Ayurveda in your life, cleaning your tongue has its own benefits. It is on its surface that the bacteria that cause bad breath accumulate. Removing them regularly will not only help keep your breath fresh, it will also reduce the risk of oral diseases. What’s more, with this practice, you are also cleaning your taste buds. This will make your food seem tastier and juicier.
Tongue scrapers on the market can be made of plastic, like those offered by Curaprox Poland, or of metal, mainly copper, which has antimicrobial properties.
