As we enter the new year, it's important to prioritize our health and well-being. One aspect of our overall health that often goes overlooked is oral hygiene. Brushing our teeth twice a day and flossing once a day are essential habits for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. But there's one step that many people forget: scraping their tongue. Your tongue is home to millions of bacteria, and failing to remove them can lead to bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease.
Scraping your tongue with a tongue scraper or a toothbrush can help remove bacteria and prevent these issues. In addition to the health benefits, maintaining good oral hygiene also has aesthetic benefits. Who doesn't want a bright, white smile and fresh breath? So as we enter 2023, make a resolution to prioritize your oral hygiene. Brush, floss, and scrape your tongue daily to keep your mouth healthy and clean. Your teeth, gums, and tongue (and those around you!) will thank you.
