The tongue is the main home of any bacteria in the mouth. Bacteria living on the tongue are likely to spread to your gums and teeth, even whilst you are brushing the teeth.
The back of the tongue is where as much as 80% of bad breath starts – this can then lead to gingivitis and tooth decay developing gradually. The importance of tongue cleaning cannot be emphasised enough as a way of preventing severe dental health problems. It should be incorporated into your regular oral hygiene routine.
Bacteria can get stuck in the teeth
The tongue has grooves and ridges which can lead to bacteria getting stuck in them. As the day goes on, the bacteria will then attach to the surrounding gums and teeth.
A tongue cleanser is a good solution for getting rid of surplus bacteria and halting the development of any issues with your dental health in the process. It will eliminate bacteria that could harm your mouth, and keep breath smelling good at the same time.
The Tongue Detox Cleanser
The Tongue Detox Cleanser is one specialist tongue cleanser that is simple to use. It is made of plastic with a covering of minty, antibacterial material. It is flexible and can be scraped over the tongue’s surface, getting rid of food debris, bacteria and any other film or dead cells that are causing bad breath.
The Tongue Detox Cleanser should be used every day in order to reduce the risk of bad breath and promote a good overall level of oral hygiene.
It can also be used to stop ‘smoker’s breath,’ which is caused by a film layer accumulating on the tongue. The Tongue Detox Cleanser works to remove this and leave smokers with fresher breath.
