Tongue Scrape Test is probably inaccurate

Postby pepper234 » Wed Nov 22, 2017 2:06 pm

Other than the number of reactions, people have been saying that BB can be detected by using a spoon, by scraping the back of the tongue to detect any smell. I've had my doubts about this test, and this was confirmed for me when I watched this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIH87NOKrzw

Basically, presenters walked down the street and did the spoon scrape test on random passersby. Most of the people in the video had smelly tongue scrapings. As we all know, 99% of people we meet might have normal BB, but goes away after brushing. Since normal people fail this test, I think everyone's scrapings just smell bad. Being able to smell your tongue scrapings might not say much at all.

Anyone has thoughts about this?

The show seems to confuse temporary funky food smells with chronic BB.
If they do that I belive they are pretty clueless on this topic.

I wish I could smell foodstuffs, it's totaly different kind of smell.

Have you done the tongue test yourself?

Yes, but unfortunately most websites and people think like that. I have done the tongue scrape test and often can smell something sourish, but when i smell my BB (very occasionally i can smell it in certain positions) it smells more like rotten eggs. I also have perpetually blocked nose so I am not the best at detecting the presence of scents.

I agree that it is not accurate. When a normal person puts his finger at the back of his tongue and smell it, ofcourse it smells bad. But that person doesn't necessarily mean that he has bb.

My mother has a bad set of teeth. She even have black teeth. She never flossed for decades. But when we talk, her breath doesn't smell bad. I can smell it. Becoz if she does hav bb, i would have noticed it. Other poeple would have noticed it too. But she doesnt have bb.

Licking is not accurate. Tongue scrapping is not too. They dont have what we have. These people who post these topics in youtube might have encountered a person who have bb. Then they become curious about us. Then they're trying to figure it out what is the cure based on their own study. As if that is really the cure. Indeed they found the cure, but only worked for them. What they have is just a normal morning breath.

Yeah i agree, to 'cure' normal BB one just has to brush their teeth. These people will smell their scrapings and say it's bad but OF COURSE! Your mouth literally digests food, there is food putrefying in your mouth so everyone's tongue smells on some level. But it doesn't mean they have any BB which others can smell. Also, i think for many of us the BB comes from the digestive system. I don't believe BB from tongue can be room filling and travel so far.

What do you mean here: "When a normal person puts his finger at the back of his tongue and smell it, ofcourse it smells bad."

You're saying even people with no bad breath can have smelly tongues? I think you're wrong here.
I believe my bad breath started after multiple rounds of antibiotics between the ages of 2 and 10. Attempting a fecal transplant in 2018 to cure it.

The best way to smell your tongue is to put your tongue on your upper lip and then smell your lip. Do that when you wake up in the morning to know how your tongue smell in the morning when you have morning breath. To use that as a standaard when you need to compare during the day.

And after brushing and scrape your tongue. Do the same thing to know when your tongue is pretty clean how it smell. You will notice that it don't smell anything. If you can still smell something after brushing, you need to brush and scrape it again because it isn't clean yet. Thats what I do every day to check my breath.

And remember to wet a tissue paper to wipe your lip. After checking. hahhaha. :mrgreen:
