GUM Dual Action Tongue Cleaner
The GUM® dual action tongue cleaner efficiently removes dental plaque, food debris, and dead cells from the surface of the tongue. One side of the tongue cleaner consists of two rows of bristles that reach into the tiny folds and crevices on the tongue surface to dislodge the dental plaque and debris. The other side of the cleaner consists of two rows of scrapers that remove the loosened plaque and debris for thorough cleaning.
Clinical research has shown that most of the bacteria in the mouth live on the surface of the tongue, and that the tongue is one of the most common sources of oral malodor. Regular tongue cleaning, as part of a daily oral hygiene regimen, reduces oral malodor.
The GUM® dual action tongue cleaner has a narrow head that is comfortable and minimizes sensitivity and the gag reflex. The long handle provides easy access to the far-back areas of the tongue. The comfort grip handle design enables firm control and precision guidance for both brushing and scraping actions.
Dual action for thorough, deep, and gentle tongue cleaning! Include tongue cleaning as part of your twice daily toothbrushing and once daily between-teeth cleaning regimen.
