A Guide To Tongue Scraping

What is tongue scraping and

 the benefits of 

tongue scraping

Copper tongue scrapping is an Ayurvedic self-care ritual that removes bacteria, food debris, fungi, toxins, and dead cells from the surface of the tongue. Let us talk you through what we know and hopefully help you to make a decision on whether tongue scraping is for you.

WHAT IS A TONGUE SCRAPER?

A tongue scraper, also known as a tongue tingler, is a long, thin, piece of (usually) metal that has been rounded into a "U" shape. Stainless steel, copper, and plastic are the most commonly used materials when it comes to tongue scrapers. While plastic is affordable and can be gentler on your tongue, steel or copper tend to be the more effective options. 


HOW DOES TONGUE SCRAPING WORK?

We have bacteria in our mouth, good and bad, but if there is a build up of the bad it can cause bad breath, tooth decay and infections. 

Tongue scraping is a way of cleaning your tongue naturally and removing the extra layer of bacteria, food debris and dead cells that sit on the surface of your tongue.  

This holistic approach to mouth hygiene promotes a healthy tongue improving oral and digestive health. 


ARE COPPER TONGUE SCRAPERS BEST?

Copper is naturally anti-microbial and anti-bacterial, plus it provides vital enzymes that promote the survival of good bacteria and other important microbes in your mouth which is why it is the ultimate material. Silver and stainless steel are also ofter preferred materials for a tongue scraper. We stock both a Copper Tongue Cleaner and Stainless Steel Tongue Cleaner.

The only downside; copper can change colour and start to tarnish, so to make sure your tongue scraper is a zero waste purchase and lasts a lifetime, we have come up with our top tips on how to clean it naturally How To Clean A Copper Tongue Scraper.

BENEFITS OF TONGUE SCRAPING

In Ayurveda, it is believed that your digestion and health begin with your taste. And so, by using a tongue scraper and removing the build up on your tongue and stimulating the salivary gland, this encourages the digestive process to run smoothly and improve your gut health. They believe that by massaging your tongue can detox different organs in your body.

Other believed benefits of tongue scraping include: 

  • Improving your sense of taste and therefore your health, as you will be able to taste your food and drink with more intensity and so will need to add less salt and sugar to your meals.
  • Removing bacteria and plaque from your tongue and therefore helping to temporarily get rid of bad breath. However, please note that you must use your tongue scraper regularly for this to last. 
  • Improving your oral health, as removing this layer can help to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, cavities and many other problems.
  • Bettering the aesthetic of your tongue by getting rid of the whiteness that can build up. 

Please note although tongue scraping is believed to benefit your oral health in many ways, you must still brush your teeth, use floss and mouthwash where possible.

Frequently Asked Questions


Do tongue scrapers actually work?

Tongue scrapers quickly and efficiently remove extra particles from the surface of your tongue. They are inexpensive and specifically designed for cleaning your tongue, unlike a toothbrush.


Is it safe to put copper in your mouth?

Copper is essential for good health however, exposure to higher doses can be harmful. Daily use of a copper tongue scraper will not leave you with adverse symptoms.


How often should I use a tongue scraper?

You should scrape your tongue once a day, and most experts recommend that you do it after brushing either in the morning or evening.

What about tongue brushes?

Tongue brushes look similar to a standard toothbrush but are made with bristles that are designed to help clean tongues rather than scrub teeth. They are kind on the tongue and gums thanks to their rounded shape and lightweight. These are said to be comparably effective to tongue scrapers. Shop our Bamboo Tongue Cleaner.


My tongue scraper is tarnished

Copper does oxidise with air over time which forms a coating on it . This is actually a good measure for the purity of the copper. 

Can tongue scrapers damage my your tastebuds?

Make sure you scrape gently. A little goes a long way.

  • My name is Hailey Garcia and I am from New Jersey. My herpes virus turned to war after 2 years of living with it. I have tried different medical procedures to cure my herpes but to no avail. Most people think herpes is only a minor skin irritation of which herpes has long term effects on health and passes through the bloodstream and can be easily contracted through sexual intercourse. I knew I had herpes from the first day I started feeling itchy in my pubic area and the pain was very unbearable. I couldn’t stand it anymore. After 2 years of trying other means to get rid of it, I had to contact Doctor Odunga to help me with a permanent cure. I saw his email and whats-app number from a testimony I read online from a lady who was also helped by him in curing infertility problems, I had faith and contacted him. He assured me of his work and I ordered his herbal medicine. Within 5 days, I didn’t feel any pain anymore and within 2 weeks, my skin was all cleared and smooth. I am very grateful to you sir and I write this testimony as others have done to bring those having faith to you sir. If you have herpes or other similar disease and you want it cured, kindly contact Doctor Odunga, Whats-App (wa.me/+2348167159012) OR Email odungaspelltemple@gmail.com

  • Hello everyone my names are ALEX JACKSON from the UK, I want to use this golden medium to appreciate Doctor Abdul a great spell caster for helping me retrieving back my relationship with my ex lover when she ended and turned back on me for quite a long time now (6 months ago). He performed a spell for me and within 48 hours after the spell had been cast I received a text from my ex saying that she is sorry for the pains and tears that she had caused me and that she will not do such a thing to me again in her life. I was surprised but later accepted her back again. Anyone that is in the same line of problem or different one that wants to contact a spell caster should happily contact Doctor Abdul now on this email address.doctorabdulspellcaster@gmail.com or message him through his Whatsapp +2348108728256
