I am participating in the Crest and Oral-B Pro-Health Clinical Plaque Control Test Drive Program. In this program, I am testing out the new Crest® and Oral-B® PRO-HEALTH® Clinical Plaque Control line of products. What makes this unique is that this line of product is designed to work together to protect your mouth against all the key checkpoints that dentist make including: plaque, cavities, gingivitis, sensitivity, tartar, stains, and fresh breath.
I’ve never heard of a line of products that work together before. I usually just buy the brands and flavors that I like. It is really a great idea. The PRO-HEALTH Clinical Plaque Control line includes toothpaste, rinse, floss and manual toothbrush. That when used together, protect against all the areas dentist check most: plaque, cavities, gingivitis, sensitivity, tartar, stains, and fresh breath.
I don’t know about you but right after I go to the dentist for a cleaning, I can’t stop running my tongue over my smooth teeth. You know the feeling, there is nothing better than the “right after a dental cleaning” feeling. I always try extra hard to keep that feeling for as long as I can after the dentist visit. I follow the rules especially well with flossing, brushing, and sometimes rinsing. I’m not as good at continuing this regimen, especially the mouth rinse.
That being said, I like that this new line of products is designed to keep that after a dental cleaning feeling by having all products work together.
Crest® Pro-Health® Clinical Plaque Control Toothpaste
Crest Pro-health Clinical Plaque Control Toothpaste keeps plaque from coming back by killing plaque germs and slowing the ability to generate new plaque. I have used Pro-Health toothpaste for the sensitive teeth issue for some time now, off and on. I like that it is a fluoride toothpaste to fight cavities and also against gingivitis and sensitive teeth. Plus, it has a great fresh mint taste to keep my breath fresh and teeth whiter.
Crest® Pro-Health® Clinical Rinse
Like I said, the first thing to go in my regime is the mouth rinse. I have two theories as to why. #1 I always thought it was just a breath-freshening upper as a kid so that thought has stayed with me all these years. #2 The stronger stuff is so strong that I know it is working, not just covering up bad breath but I can’t commit to dealing with the strong taste.
The Crest Pro-health Clinical Rinse taste great and I know that it is doing more than just giving me fresh breath. It actually can help keep your teeth 91% plaque free for up to 2 months after a dental visit! Imagine a “right after a dental cleaning feeling” for 2 months. Plus, it can actually start reversing gingivitis in just 2 weeks. And, of course, it kills 99% of germs to keep your breath smelling minty fresh.
Oral-B® Pro-Health® Clinical Pro-Flex Toothbrush
The Oral-B Pro-Health Clinical Pro-Flex Soft Toothbrush does a great job of brushing your teeth. The sides actually flex so that it can adjust to your teeth and gums.
Oral-B® Glide ™ Pro-Health ® Clinical Protection Floss
Oral-B Glide dental floss has always been my favorite brand. It doesn’t shred and just simply glides smoothly between my teeth. The new Oral-B Glide Pro-Health Clinical Protection Floss can help reverse gingivitis in 2 weeks as part of a routine with products like the PRO-HEALTH Clinical Plaque Control line. Plus, it protects against cavities and bad breath by removing plaque.
My overall impression so far is very favorable. I like the fact that the entire line works together to help me keep that “right after a dental cleaning feeling” and to keep my mouth healthy. The flavors are all great too, which is a huge bonus for people like me who can’t handle a regimen if the taste is off.
