Tongue scrapers are used to help clean your tongue from any bacteria that gathers on it. Using the tongue scraper can help decrease bad breath by reducing the number of bacteria in your mouth but is not the only way to reduce bad breath. The best way to fight bad breath and to keep your mouth healthy is by brushing your teeth 2 times a day for 2 minutes, flossing, eating nutritious healthy meals, and seeing your dentist for regular cleanings and checkups.
To use the tongue scraper, start by sticking your tongue out and positioning the scraper at the back of your tongue and pulling forward. Repeat this step 3-4 times being sure to rinse between each stroke. If you have any irritations of the tongue, such as cuts or open sores, give your tongue a chance to heal before using it.
