Whats the deal with Tongue Cleaners?

Ah the lesser known of the dental apparatus. 

Because is isn’t really about cleaning your teeth at all, the tongue cleaner cleanses and cleans your tongue and therefore, can have an impact on your entire oral health.

Using a Tongue Cleaner can remove dead cells, bacteria and debris from the tongue that would otherwise be left there as we have all been taught to worry about the teeth and gums.  Our tongue health is often skirted over or not mentioned at all.

Don’t get me wrong, cleaning your teeth is the most important but when you are trying to follow a more natural path with your dental health, tongue cleaning is an important part of your dental routine.

Using a tongue cleaner can help get rid of bad breath and with careful management, regular flossing and cleaning, tongue cleaning can also help get rid of halitosis.

Bad breath will come back, consistency and repitition is key.  As with cleaning your teeth or even washing your hair, you need to do these things regularly.  We recommend the following dental routine for excellent results.

Morning and evening (usually before bed)

1. Floss, carefully.

2. Clean your teeth with your toothbrush and toothpaste.

3. Use our Tongue Cleaner in soft yet firm motions up to 10 times from the back of the tongue to the front (don’t go too far back or you’ll make yourself ill).

5. Finish off with a mouthwash.

Simple right?  yet it’s amazing how many people only brush there teeth and leave the rest then wonder why their oral health isn’t tip top!

Tongue cleaning will also improve your sense of taste, the appearance of your tongue, improve overall health helping prevent gum disease and cavities as well as removing bacteria.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, I can just use the bristles of my brush to clean my tongue.  You’re right, you can, that’s better than doing nothing, however, using a Tongue Cleaner has been proven to remove up to 30% more debris and sulfur compounds from the tongue than a toothbrush has so it’s entirely up to you of course 🙂

Of all the products in our dental collection, the Tongue Cleaner gets the most interest and with some stockists, it’s the best selling product!  

Not only is it uber effective but it’s also as sustainable as they come, made of stainless steel and the packaging is compostable and recyclable there’s literally no waste from this product.  It’ll last you years and years!

Tell your friends everyone! no bathroom should be without it 🙂
