Nada eco-friendly toothbrush heads use less plastic than disposables and can be returned to be 100% recycled

Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential for overall health and well-being.

But while brushing your teeth twice a day is a crucial part of your oral hygiene routine, it may not be enough to remove all the bacteria and toxins from your mouth.

That's where tongue scraping comes in. And that’s also why our new Nada eco-friendly toothbrush heads come with a built-in tongue scraper.

Tongue scraping has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine to promote oral health, but recent studies have also shown its effectiveness in reducing plaque, gingivitis, and cavities. Here are some of the benefits of tongue scraping:

  1. Removes bacteria and toxins

The tongue is a breeding ground for bacteria and toxins, and brushing alone may not be enough to remove them.

Tongue scraping can help remove the bacteria and toxins that accumulate on your tongue, preventing them from spreading to other parts of your mouth and causing cavities and gum disease.

  1. Reduces plaque

Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that forms on teeth and can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

Tongue scraping can help reduce the amount of plaque in your mouth by removing the bacteria that contribute to its formation.

Regular tongue scraping can also help prevent the build-up of plaque, which can be difficult to remove with brushing alone.

  1. Prevents gingivitis

Gingivitis is a common gum disease that is caused by the buildup of plaque and bacteria in the mouth.

Symptoms of gingivitis include swollen, red, and bleeding gums. Tongue scraping can help prevent gingivitis by removing the bacteria that cause it.

Regular tongue scraping, in combination with brushing and flossing, can help keep your gums healthy and prevent gum disease.

  1. Fresher breath

Bad breath, also known as halitosis, can be caused by bacteria and toxins that accumulate on the tongue. Tongue scraping can help remove these bacteria, reducing bad breath and improving your overall oral hygiene.

  1. Enhances taste buds

The tongue is responsible for detecting different tastes, and a buildup of bacteria and toxins can dull your taste buds.

Tongue scraping can help remove the buildup, enhancing your ability to taste food and enjoy different flavours.

Tongue scraping is a simple and effective practice that can help improve your oral hygiene and prevent cavities, gingivitis, and plaque. It is a quick and easy addition to your oral hygiene routine that can have significant long-term benefits for your overall health and well-being.

If you haven't tried tongue scraping yet, it's worth giving it a try!
