Importance of Tongue Cleaning
The tongue's surface is the main breeding ground for harmful bacteria that attack teeth & gums producing a rotten egg - smelling gases or "dragon mouth"!

Tongue scraping with a Tongue Cleaner is a boon for those suffering from coated tongue. Effective tongue cleaning reduces coating on the tongue by as much as 40%!! The best part is that a tongue cleaner is so easy and fun to use.
A myth widely believed is that the stomach is the root cause of bad breath. Bad breath from the stomach is so rare that of a thousand people treated for bad breath not a single case was caused by stomach problems.
Tooth brushing and mouthwashes do nothing to remove oral debris on the tongue, the root cause of bad breath. At best they mask bad breath. Tongue cleaning is by far the most effective way of combating bad breath.
Recently, there have been three world meets on bad breath wherein a lot of emphasis has been given to tongue cleaning as a daily adjunct to routine oral hygiene.

Why use a Tongue Cleaner ?
A Tongue Cleaner is a product that has been used for thousands of years as a part of traditional Ayurvedic and yogic practice. It is a uniquely designed bend made of Copper (preferably!) designed to remove the maximum waste organic matter and mucous from the tiny grooves on the tongue surface by gently gliding it over the surface.
You'll be surprised when you actually see how much mucous is removed after what you thought was a perfect brushing session !! It is the best way to keep your breath fresh and taste buds active. (More...)
" I had never tried the tongue cleaner before (although I had heard of it many times) and I am truly amazed! It leaves a wonderfully clean feeling in my mouth. So much better and surely more healthy than mouthwash! "
