Butler Gum Tongue Cleaner 760: Brush and Scraper Combo
From previous posts I have mentioned that I usually just brush my tongue with my toothbrush
which is supposed to help keep your mouth clean and to have a fresh breath
. Some toothbrushes have the gel head on the other side of the bristles specifically for cleaning your tongue. I’ve just been using the bristles. In the past I have used plastic tongue scrapers
which have a flexible piece of plastic which you hold on with both hands to bend into a U shape and you scrape it across your tongue. This method worked but it's kind of a hassle and I eventually stopped using it. I was curious to test out a new type of tongue cleaner and to see if there were any differences from the plastic U shaped tongue scraper.
The Butler Gum Tongue Cleaner
was really amazing! The cleaner had 2 sides on each side. One side had short bristles that felt like a toothbrush but was more firm due to the shortness of the bristles and the other side was like a plastic rake. I used both sides of the tongue cleaner after I brushed and rinsed and it felt like a full cleaning. The cleaner scraped off all the extra residue from the toothpaste and rinse and my mouth felt fresh and clean. My breath was clean and I have been using this cleaner every night after brushing my teeth. I significantly see the results with a longer lasting fresh breath. With the easy handle similar to a toothbrush, I see myself using this product for the rest of my life! I am also a fan of the Gum brand toothbrushes because of their unique features for special needs such as cleaning wisdom teeth.
