For some strange reason, the thought occurred to me that brushing your teeth might actually help your heart. Perhaps it’s because plaque is both the build-up in blood cells as well as on your teeth. Well, now two scientific studies have linked bad teeth care and a higher risk of heart disease. I recommend getting a tongue scraper as well, they really work. http://www.physorg.com/news140292034.html
Let’s just say I was impressed with how much plaque it removed, even after brushing my tounge daily.
I remember reading that there was a possible link between heart disease and dental caries-causing bacteria at least a decade ago, it came out at around the same time H pylori and stomach ulcers finally went mainstream.
In what sense does a tongue scraper “really work”? To scrape your tongue, certainly, but to what advantage?
