Tongue scrapping removes bacteria, food debris, fungi, toxins, and dead cells from the surface of the tongue. Usually made from copper however stainless steel tongue scrapers do require care not to tarnish so the stainless steel option is for those who would not prefer the metal to discolour.
Dental research has concluded that a tongue scraper is more effective at removing toxins and bacteria from the tongue than a toothbrush. Almost half of our oral bacteria live on and in the deep crevices of our tongue; the scraping action of a tongue scraper collects these toxic tongue coatings and removes them from the body. Some people who get large buildup of bacteria will benefit from tongue scraping because it is essentially the manual removal of the bacteria which cause the compounds that produce bad breath.
There are claims that regular tongue scraping, by removing a buildup of toxins, can boost your immunity, improve your digestive health and also assist with your general well-being as it is an important part of Ayruvedic health and digestion principles.

How to Use
Stand in front of the mirror, open wide and stick your tongue out. Pinch the ends of the scraper so the round end fits onto your tongue. Start at the back and lightly scrape forwards (never do front to back. Gently touch the scraper to your tongue. Slowly pull it forward, toward the tip of your tongue. Clean after each use and repeat a couple of times to each area. It will only take a couple of minutes to complete. Wash scraper with soap and water and leave to dry out.
