Dentist Supplies and The Value of a Clean Tongue

dental hygiene productsDentist supplies are helpful when you want to maintain excellent dental hygiene. But most pharmacies don’t carry a very special, underrated item. For a tongue scraper, your dental supplier is where to turn.

Everyone should have a tongue scraper. It may sound silly, but it’s actually one of the only ways to clean your tongue. Brushing your tongue and using mouthwash only do so much. With this simple tool, you hold on to each end of the white stick and drag it from the back of your tongue forward. Lo and behold, these dental hygiene products remove all of that nasty white gunk that you find sitting on your tongue. Your tongue will actually be pink again!

This gunk is a large contributor to bad breath, which you might have guessed. But not so obvious is the fact that this stuff also can get stuff on your molars and contribute to plaque buildup. So the more you scrape, the better shape your back teeth will retain.

And when you supplement tongue scraping with twice a day brushing and once (or more) a day flossing, you will be well on your way to having some gorgeous teeth.
