How soon can I expect results?

It depends on where you're starting from but the results can be seen and felt instantly. With the coating that sits on the tongue removed, everything just feels better. It’s just like washing your body! A clean tongue just like a clean body doesn’t have a displeasurable odour.

 

Do many people clean their tongues in this way?

The truth is that millions of people know about it.

It is common practice in many Asian and older cultures. Tongue cleaning was practiced in ancient Rome by the wealthier classes of Roman's in the 18th and 19th century Europe. However, for unknown reasons, the practice did not spread widely in the West. But now, with more research verifying its benefits, and with TV and other publicity, many dentists and hygienists are recommending it.

 

Do you recommend plastic or stainless steel tongue cleaners? Or even brushes?

Stainless steel doesn’t wear out and is impervious to bacteria (unlike plastic) making stainless steel or even silver the obvious choice.

With the U-shaped design, it's easy to clean the back of the tongue where most bacteria reside. As you can use 2 hands, it gives you precise control over the pressure and position of your cleaner. This seemingly simple design has evolved over centuries and gives precise control over the position and pressure of the cleaner on the tongue, making it easy to use and overcoming the gagging problem caused by too much pressure on the tongue (as when trying to clean it with a brush or other one-handed cleaners).

As for brushes, soft bristles are generally not effective in removing such viscous substance, especially from a soft object like the tongue. Brushes are really designed for the application of solutions hence the application of pastes to harder surface, like teeth.

 

Does tongue cleaning have benefits in addition to keeping the breath fresh?

Research shows that tongue cleaning can help prevent plaque build-up on the teeth. Also by removing the coating on the tongue, it can also help improve our taste perception (because the coating on the tongue dulls the taste receptors). Many people report that they get far less colds and flu. Cleaning your tongue is good for overall health!

 

How often should you clean your tongue?

Twice a day is usually sufficient. Most people do it upon waking and before going to bed, which helps prevent morning breath. Some people also like to clean their tongue after each meal. It only takes 10 or 15 seconds each time.

 

How do I clean the stainless steel tongue cleaner?

We suggest cleaning the tongue cleaner regularly - like every few weeks by rubbing it with toothpaste (rather than a chemical cleaning agent). This helps get rid of any residue that may have built up on the stainless steel.
