Gratte langue Aime x A Tongue Cleaner Changed My Life
Meet the Aime tongue cleaner, the perfect accessory to complete your dental care routine and get back to a healthy oral hygiene.
Our mouth is the host to more than 700 bacterias, among them are some good ones and others are not. Those ones find a place to stay in oral cavities and favor dental plaque and halitosis, which is responsible for a bad breath. Gently cleaning your tongue daily is therefore a major step to boost the body’s natural detoxification process. The results: a fresher breath, an appeased oral hygiene and a balanced oral microbiota.
Our mouth is the host to more than 700 types of bacterias. While a large part of this microflora is useful, the hundreds of fine lines that compose the tongue’s surface also host some harmful bacterias, feeding from food leftovers and dead cells. Their favorite game? Taking advantage of a drop of saliva production during the night to proliferate.
Unlike the teeth, the tongue is not a smooth surface, but a surface made of asperities, which makes it the perfect field for bacterias to find refuge in it and multiply themselves.
You will finally understand the why of this bad breath in the morning - and the presence of this odd and thin white layer that covers your tongue.
Studies have shown that tongue scraping was way more efficient than a toothbrush to eliminate tongue bacterias, for a toothbrush may create micro-damages which would be a nest to other bacterias.
Our tongue cleaner is 100% made of copper, known for its antimicrobial properties. It has smooth and thick borders, and is conceived to cover the whole tongue. It also comes with its pretty travel pouch.
A tongue cleaner is used in the morning, before eating or drinking, to remove bacteria that have accumulated on your tongue overnight.
- Hold one end of the tongue scraper between each hand and place the rounded part on the back of your tongue.
- Scrape your tongue from back to front while applying gentle pressure. Finish in the middle, then several times on each side.
- Observe the yellowish mucus removed from the surface of your tongue each morning.
- Simply rinse with water after use.
What are the benefits of the tongue cleaner? The tongue cleaner allows you to eliminate bad bacterias, obtain a better-smelling breath, enhance your oral-dental hygiene and prevent cavities. It’s also going to increase your sense of taste and favor the production of saliva, and thus digestion.
How to use the tongue cleaner? For an optimal use of the tongue cleaner, we invite you to hold one extremity of the tongue cleaner in each hand and to place the rounded part at the back of your tongue. Then, while allowing a light pressure on your tongue, you just have to scratch it gently from the back to the front. You can end with the middle and several times on each side of the tongue.
How to clean an oxidized tongue cleaner? Because the Aime tongue cleaner is made of copper, it is possible that a layer of copper oxide naturally appears. Be reassured, it is only a natural phenomenon, it is absolutely not dangerous. Oxidation does not mean it is dirty. You simply have to rinse it and wipe it off after use. If you want your tongue cleaner to remain shining, you can clean it with a cloth, some salt and white vinegar, then rinse it underwater.
When is the ideal moment to use the tongue cleaner? We usually recommend using it in the morning, on an empty stomach, to eliminate the night’s bacterias or in the evening, before bed.
Is the tongue cleaner efficient to suppress bad breath? Yes, most of the time bad breath is due to the presence of some bacterias on the tongue. Thus, by scraping your tongue with this tool, you can remove those bacterias and say goodbye to bad breath.
