Why You Should Scrape Your Tongue When You Brush Your Teeth

Sam Carroll has the dental knowledge and technology which Yuma AZ residents need. When it comes to excellent oral health, you may be skipping one of the essential steps in your daily routine. We all understand the importance of brushing and flossing, but many Yumans may not realize that the incredible benefits of tongue scraping can take your dental hygiene to the next level.

Benefits of Tongue Scraping

Tongue scraping can do much more than brushing and flossing when it comes to ridding your mouth of harmful bacteria and plaques. While brushing and flossing help remove debris from the surfaces of your teeth and gums, most will stay in the mouth to settle again. When you use a tongue scraper, you can remove more of the bacteria, toxins, food debris, yeast cells and dead cells that form a film on your tongue.

Here are just a few of the benefits you can gain from using a tongue scraper regularly:

  • Reduce bad breath by 75%
  • Uncover your taste buds for better meals
  • Boost your immune system
  • Prevent gum disease
  • Promote saliva production for better digestion and oral health
  • Reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and infertility with superior dental hygiene
  • Prevent tooth decay

When you consider how simple tongue scraping is and how beneficial it is, adding this to your daily routine is a no-brainer. If you live in the Yuma, The Yuma Foothills, Wellton, San Luis, or are just passing through the Yuma area, and you are looking for an exceptional general dentist, please contact our Yuma dental office today to schedule an appointment.

Dr. Carroll has state-of-the-art equipment and can do it all. I was able to get my new crown replaced on the same day with only the one visit. I've been going there for years and never had to wait past my appointment time. The office staff are all friendly, helpful, efficient, prompt, and make you feel at home and more importantly, comfortable. Dr. Carroll remembers details from prior visits and always follows up on them. A real bonus for me is that he has a way with giving the shots to numb your mouth without it hurting! I'm very grateful for the excellent care I get from Dr. Carroll and his staff.

I had such a wonderful experiance at this office! Switching from another local dentist was the best decision I ever made. Shanel, the hygienist, was absolutely amazing and Dr. Carroll was incredibly down to earth and attentive to any questions or concerns. The whole staff is just awesome and I can't recommend this office enough!

I was terrified of the dentist from past bad experience. My daughter had a traumatic experience at a local dentist as well. We have both started seeing Dr. Carroll and have had the most comfortable, reassuring experience. They are kind, knowledgeable and patient!! Thank you Dr. Carroll and Staff!! Second visit - 2/4/16 - Deep Clean Procedure and a Wisdom tooth extraction - Again, I can't say enough about my visit. The staff from the moment you walk in the door are professional and friendly. My procedure was 99.5% pain free and the extraction was 100% pain free. I was given information every step of the way and was made to feel comfortable at all times. This is an office with compassion, caring and understanding. I highly recommend this practice. I can't say thank you enough for the positive experience and dental work. Thank you!!

I have had an excellent experience with Dr. Carroll over the past -I have been with him since he started practice in Yuma. He and his staff have always treated me professionally and respectfully. I say 'had' because I just moved out of state and now I hope to find a new dentist as skilled as Dr. Carroll. My last visit was a highlight for me. He gave me a brand new, much improved smile by replacing my top front six teeth with crowns made by him on site. The change is amazing and I say "thank you Dr. Carroll!"

Sam Carroll , DMD, is knowledgable about all the latest and most effective dental procedures and treatment to make you SMILE... I have seen a caring and gentle approach with the very young patients ( My Grandaughter) and the concern he had with my 90 year old Father. Very comfortable yet professional atmosphere at all times!
