Do Tongue Cleaners Work?

In Dental Care on December 21, 2010 at 4:00 AM

YES – unless bad breath, oral bacteria, and leftover food gunk are things you want to take with you as you start your day…or before you go to bed. Some people use their toothbrush for the job, but for better removal of the oral bacteria that can lead to tooth decay, plaque, and gum disease; scrape that tongue!

We won’t get into any specific brand or style of tongue squeegee, just choose one you think will do the job. And if you have any questions, just ask.

Oral bacteria have been linked to many other general health problems such as:

Plaque (the kind in your blood vessels) & Heart Disease
Rheumatoid Arthritis
Premature birth or low birth weight
Osteoporosis
Diabetes

Watch this 3min YouTube video, “Healthy Mouth, Healthy You“… can you believe there are more bacteria in your mouth right now than there are people in the world!?!

What many people first deemed a gimmick is actually a useful and inexpensive oral health care tool to add to your arsenal. The cavity creeps are unrelenting, they don’t take time off for Holidays!
