I slide with a rustle
Of needles that hang,
To glide in the tunnel
And scrape every fang.

I spread with a slither
Of slime and a slew,
To shred and to wither
The gold from the chew.

What could I be?

I think you are a

Toothbrush

I slide with a rustle

Noise of a toothbrush is a rustle

Of needles that hang,

Bristles

To glide in the tunnel

The mouth.

And scrape every fang.

The teeth

I spread with a slither
Of slime and a slew,

When coated in toothpaste and foam.

To shred and to wither
The gold from the chew.

Gold here could be figurative or may refer to gold fillings. The process is separation of food from the teeth.
