Tongue Scraper Types

Posted by Dr. Abeyta on Jun 22 2011, 03:02 AM

Tongue scrapers can be purchased over the counter or from a dental hygienist. They come in many different shapes and sizes, and are made from a variety of different materials. Some patients prefer a tongue scraper that is made of metal or plastic while others prefer a softer material.

Tongue scrapers can be used to remove debris, bacteria, and food particles from the tongue. When debris and bacteria build up on the tongue, it can contribute to bad breath. Regularly using a tongue scraper can help prevent bad breath by removing these particles.

Tongue scrapers can also be used to remove dead cells from the surface of the skin. This can help prevent the buildup of bacteria and fungi that can lead to cavities, bad breath, and other oral health issues.
