Tongue scraping

Is tongue scraping part of your daily routine? Here are some of the reasons why you should scrape your tongue daily.

Everybody talks about brushing and flossing daily, which is very important. But less talked about is another aspect of mouth hygiene: tongue scraping.

Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why you should scrape your tongue daily.

Better heart health
Poor mouth health is linked to heart disease. Many other diseases and illnesses enter through the mouth as well. Cleaning your tongue is crucial to mouth hygiene.

Immune boosting

Scraping your tongue can prevent germs and toxins from entering the body. It is especially important when you are dealing with a virus.

Fresh breath

A 2004 study in the Journal of Periodontology showed that a toothbrush reduced the production of volatile sulfur compounds by 45 percent while a tongue scraper reduced production by 75 percent.

Fewer cavities

Cleaning your tongue helps prevent plaque buildup, which in turn prevents cavities.

Better digestion

Tongue scraping and keeping a clean tongue increases production of saliva, which aids in digestion.

➥Thoroughly clean your tongue scraper before and after use.
➥Start gently scraping from the back of the tongue and move your way forward. Do so 3 -5 times.
