You’ve probably heard that to remove bad breath is to brush your tongue. But I bet you are doing it wrong.
Oh – real quick – while this is a sponsored post, all opinions are 100% my own.
Ok back to the post.
Experts agree – brushing your tongue gives you fresher breath. Let’s talk about tongue brushing. Most people either don’t brush their tongue at all or if they do, they are doing in inefficiently.
So if you’re going to go through the trouble to brush your tongue, do it right!
Why You Need To Brush Your Tongue
Mainly, you need to brush your tongue to eliminate halitosis. I didn’t realize this, but the term “chronic halitosis” is a term created by the makers of Listerine to sell more Listerine! A lot of bad breath smells come from sulfur gasses released by bacteria on your tongue. Gross!
Most of this bacteria and the debris it feeds on, are located on the back of the tongue. Tongue scrapers actually push the bacteria into crevices of your tongue. You need a brush that will reach far back in your mouth without making you gag, and with stiff enough bristles to remove the bacteria.
How To Brush Your Tongue
There are right and wrong ways get that fresh, kissable, breath. Let’s get into it!
Completely Brush The Entire Tongue – Even The Back
Since 90% of bad breath is caused by that nasty bacteria, you should try to brush the entire tongue – even the back. I know, that’s gagging territory! But if you don’t remove it, it will keep causing bad breath.
(Hint: TUNG brushes are made flatter and with less of a chance of gagging you!)
Use Stiff Bristles To Remove Bacteria
Bacteria on tongues are sticky little buggers. Be careful with tongue scrapers. They have the potential to damage your tongue. Using stiff bristles is better because it is gentler than a scraper.
Using a soft-bristled tooth brush is smart for delicate gums. Use a stiff-bristled TUNG brush is best for your…um…tongues..(yeah you guessed I’d say that!).
Try TUNG Brush & Gel
The TUNG Brush is scientifically created to help you effectively remove bacteria from your tongue with less gagging. It has stiff bristles, a flat/short size and a wide size to cover more area at once.
The Gel is “fresh mint” and leaves your breath feeling oh so clean!
