A tongue cleaner can be a great addition to your daily mouth cleaning routine - especially if you suffer from bad breath and plaque on your tongue.
We recommend brushing your teeth daily with Tea Tree toothpaste and using a tongue scraper to remove and prevent bad breath. You can also use a mouthwash and mouth gel to counteract mouth problems.
How to use the tongue scraper
You should clean your tongue with the scraper every day for best results. We recommend that you use the tongue scraper twice a day in conjunction with brushing your teeth.
1) First brush your teeth thoroughly with Tea Tree toothpaste. We recommend using an electric toothbrush, as it is easier for the brush head to reach all the way around the mouth and clean the back teeth as well as possible.
2) Once your teeth have been thoroughly brushed, replace the toothbrush with the tongue scraper and give your tongue a go. Drag the tongue scraper over your tongue a few times and then spit out any excess toothpaste.
3) Rinse the tongue scraper well to remove all bacteria and make it ready for the next time you need to brush.
You should not rinse your mouth with mouthwash, water or anything else immediately after brushing your teeth. If you do, you'll just rinse the fluoride from the toothpaste away from your teeth and won't get the best protection for your teeth. You should therefore wait at least 30 minutes before drinking, eating or rinsing.
The oral products can be used by everyone and children from 6 years old.
Why do coatings appear on the tongue?
Most coatings on the tongue are caused by bacteria in the mouth. Unfortunately, they can also cause bad breath. Fortunately, this can be easily counteracted and prevented by using the right products. Tea Tree Oil can be used for a wide range of skin problems, including bad breath and tongue coating challenges. We therefore recommend brushing with Tea Tree toothpaste morning and night. Once you have brushed your teeth, replace the toothbrush with the tongue depressor and give your tongue a good brushing. This will clean away any unwanted bacteria that may be causing bad breath.
If the bacteria causes bad breath during the day, you can freshen up your tongue, teeth and gums with a good mouthwash with Tea Tree Oil.
White deposits on the tongue can also be a sign of mouth or tongue fungus. It can leave a metallic taste in your mouth that can feel unpleasant. Here, a mouth gel with Tea Tree Oil can help with daily care and relieve the bad breath and taste.
All mouth products with Tea Tree Oil can be used for the daily care of oral problems, including fungus of the mouth and tongue, periodontitis, gingivitis or other discomforts of the tongue, teeth and gums. We always recommend that you consult a dentist or dental hygienist for proper treatment of oral problems and diseases.
