The tongue is home to plenty of bacteria, including bacteria that causes bad breath and dental decay. A tongue cleaner, also known as a tongue scraper, removes extra particles on the surface of the tongue. Tongue cleaners are a small, round, handheld tool made from plastic or metal. Aside from removing bacteria and dental decay, tongue scrapers may also improve your tongue’s appearance and improve your sense of taste. The scraping tool of a tongue cleaner must be sharp enough to properly clean the excess substance, or otherwise replaced occasionally.
