Keep it fresh
Brushing, flossing and rinsing with mouthwash are absolutely key when it comes to being kissable. But that is only half the battle. What we have learned is that you need to brush your tongue too and not just with your toothbrush. You need the right tool for the job known as the TUNG Brush .The TUNG Brush bristles are uniquely designed to break through tongue plaque and get inside those crevices, outperforming your toothbrush, whose bristles are too soft to get the job done, and tongue scrapers.
Clinical research proves that 90% of bad breath comes from gases produced by bacteria on the surface of the tongue! These are the same bacteria and gasses that can lead to gum disease. The majority of this bacteria, and the debris it feeds upon, was found to be located primarily on the back of the tongue. The TUNG Brush™, the original tongue brush, is designed to allow you to comfortably reach far back on the tongue without gagging.Your tongue’s irregular surface has numerous crevices where bacteria can hide. On top of those crevices, a mucous-like, sticky tongue plaque forms (that white film on the tongue we’re all familiar with). The TUNG Brush bristles are uniquely designed to break through this plaque and get inside those crevices, outperforming your toothbrush, whose bristles are too soft to get the job done, and tongue scrapers.
Professional researchers have gained a new understanding of bacterial behavior in the mouth and it revolves around Biofilms. These are colonies of tenacious, three dimensional masses of bacteria that are the major contributors to bad breath and periodontal disease located in the nooks and crannies of the tongue.The effectiveness of mouthwashes and antibacterial agents is very limited in the fight against bad breath. They typically provide only a mask to the odor and not a real solution to the problem. Periodontal disease or gum disease as it is commonly known, is a condition whereby a gateway is provided for bacteria to reach the bloodstream in the gumline where the condition occurs. It’s like an open wound in the mouth. In moderate to severe cases, that wound approximates the size of the palm of the hand. It is this event, when bacteria enter the bloodstream that the individual’s overall health is compromised.
Over 75% of individuals over the age of 35 in the US alone have some form of gum disease. Research shows that bacteria on the tongue is one of the primary factors directly responsible for the onset of gum disease. Research has shown that periodontal disease is directly linked to a wide variety of serious health conditions such as heart disease, esophageal cancer, early births, diabetes and respiratory complications.
Tongue scrapers simply slide over the rough surface of your tongue, pushing that nasty film deeper into the crevices. In fact, tongue scrapers can actually damage your tongue.
The TUNG Gel™ completes the tongue cleaning system. TUNG Gel is formulated with Zinc Oxide to neutralize all that gas emitted by the bacteria. It’s actually these gases that you smell when someone has halitosis, or bad breath. Because it’s healthy for your mouth to have a certain amount of bacteria, we do not use an anti-bacterial agent in the our gel.
