awesome tongue scraper!
on December 10, 2010
i've tried a few different tongue scrapers and this one works by far the best. my first one was a dentek. after a little use, the head snapped right off. i got a similar plastic one called "the tongue cleaner," and the scraping is good but the head is very fat, so it's hard to reach the very back of your tongue. next i got one made by GUM, it has a dual scraper and 2 rows of little brushes on the other side. the head is skinnier, but the scraping edges are very round and soft, so it doesn't do much scraping. and the brushes are too soft to do much either. however the handle is very nice..
the tongue sweeper is on the small side, about 3 inches shorter than my oral b toothbrush. that'd be good for kids. it's not hard to use but i prefer the longer and thicker rubber handle on the GUM one.
the head on the tongue sweeper is small so it's very good for reaching the back of the tongue. and the edge is just sharp enough to clean the tongue well but still rounded enough so it doesn't hurt at all.
check out the picture i posted of my tongue sweeper.
