A tongue scraper often offers a temporary solution when it comes to eliminating bad breath. The scraper is a great tool that effectively cleans your tongue when it is coated with debris, bacteria, and dead cells.
The tool is a small, wand-like product that is shaped as a triangle at one end. You will grab the scraper, place the triangle end on the back of your tongue, and will gently bring the scraper forward, cleaning the particles from the surface. This will help remove the debris and bacteria that are causing your bad breath. However, this is not a permanent solution to halitosis, which is a health condition also known as bad breath.
You can purchase a tongue scraper at a local drug or grocery store and you can use it at any time of the day. Many people carry it around with them during the day so they can clean their tongue whenever they feel is necessary. Remember to rinse the scraper before and after each use and also rinse your mouth with water after your tongue has been cleaned. It is also important to remember to scrape the sides of the tongue with the scraper instead of just the middle. The bacteria and particles causing your bad breath will be all around your tongue and it’s best to thoroughly clean the entire muscle if you want successful results.
