At any given moment, millions of acids could be sitting on your tongue. Not content to cause bad breath alone, these little bacteria could also be creating a host of other problems. Cleaning your tongue will aid you to defend your oral health, and to do so, you need to be using a tongue scraper correctly. Here are a few instructions you can follow to save your fresh breath and your clean mouth:

–Wash off the tongue scraper before and after use. Bacteria from your tongue could remain on the scraper if it’s left dirty.

-Don’t worry about scraping your tongue in any particular order; no order is more constructive than any other.

-When using the scraper, scrape gently because forceful scraping could hurt your tongue.

-Start at the back of the tongue and pull the scraper forward, eliminating bacteria as you go.

-Clean the top, bottom, and sides of your tongue.

-Wash your oral cavity out with water once you’re finished with the tongue cleaner.
