From today’s perspective, the removal of coatings on the back of the tongue is an integral part of each person’s oral hygiene.
In doing so, it is important to use an effective, safe and hygienic product.
The tongue cleaner LinguaFreshONE, in whose development I was able to play a part, is an instrument which meets these requirements.
Prof. Dr. Christoph Benz has been President of the Bavarian Association of Dentists (Bayerischer Landeszahnärztekammer) since October 2010. He is assistant medical director of the polyclinic for restorative dentistry at the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich.
He tested the Linguafresh tongue cleaner for us.
After many long years of reducing oral hygiene to simply brushing one’s teeth, dentists nowadays know how important it is to clean the tongue regularly.
The tongue constitutes a huge reservoir for microorganisms. 60% to 80% of all microorganisms in our mouth are found in the grooves or fissures of the tongue.
Regular cleaning [with the Linguafresh tongue cleaner*] reduces the number of bacteria which cause caries and infections of the gums; it improves the taste perception and fights bad breath (halitosis).
