Tongue Scrapers

Tongue scrapers are handheld devices used for scraping the tongue to make it healthier, cleaner, and fresher. They remove plaque and bacteria coating the tongue caused by food particles not eliminated during brushing. They also prevent bad breath, tooth decay, and gum problems. They are best used after brushing the teeth.
