Using a tongue scraper for children

Posted by Dr. Alicia Abeyta DDS FAGD on Jul 13 2011, 03:04 AM

For children, using a tongue scraper is one of the best habits you can teach your children. It's especially beneficial if you drink water, soda, or juice on a regular basis. A tongue scraper removes bacteria, food particles, and other debris from your tongue, helping to keep it clean.

Many parents help their children brush their teeth, but skipping the tongue is a big mistake. The tongue is like a sponge and collects bacteria. The bacteria on the tongue can infect the gums, causing gingivitis. Using a tongue scraper helps keep the tongue clean and healthy.
