Tongue scraping eliminates bad breath, prevents cavities, improves internal organ function, and aids digestion. Adding this practice to your daily oral care regimen is a simple way to improve your sense of taste, monitor your internal health, and remove plaque.
How to use:
To perform tongue scraping, follow these steps:
- Stand in front of a mirror, open your mouth, and stick out your tongue (ok seems easy enough)
- Gently set the rounded end of the tongue scraper at the back of your tongue. (you may find it helpful to start at the middle of your tongue if you have a hyper-sensitive gag reflex)
- Gently touch the scraper to your tongue, pulling it forward towards the tip of your tongue. Always go from the back of the tongue to the tip.
- After each scrape, use a washcloth or tissue to remove debris from the scraper.
- Repeat until you’ve scraped the entire surface of your tongue. One to two scrapes across the same area is usually enough.
- Wash the tongue scraper with warm water and soap, dry, and store in a clean, dry area.
