How to perform a tongue scraping
The entire process usually takes less than one minutes. Repeat as needed throughout the day.
You should be mindful of how much pressure you’re applying. You want to be gentle enough to avoid harming your taste buds or breaking the skin, but firm enough to scrape up excess debris. When in doubt, start soft and gradually increase the pressure.

The surgery is clean and spacious; there is plenty of light and the waiting areas are comfortable. I have been a number of times in the past few months and have always been seen promptly and greeted in a friendly way at reception. My dentist (Seetal) is quick, with a light touch. Seetal is clear and decisive, and has a good sense of humour. Other staff I have met have been cheerful and efficient. Though I am a relatively new patient, I would happily recommend Oakthorpe Dental to others.
