In April, I was asked to take part in a fun challenge, which involved using Crest Pro-Health and Oral-B products for a month, in an attempt to help prevent plaque. I was sent Oral-B Professional Care Deep Sweep + Smart Guide Triaction 5000 Rechargeable Toothbrush, Crest Pro-Health Clinical Plaque Control Toothpaste, Oral-B Glide Pro-Health Clinical Protection Floss, and Crest Pro-Health Invigorating Clean Multi-Protection Mouthwash. These products are conceived to protect teeth and gums against problems such as cavities, gingivitis, sensitivity, tartar, plaque, stains and bad breath.
Before trying out these new products, I was using my all time favorite electric toothbrush, Oral-B ProfessionalCare SmartSeries 5000, and I was also trialing Kiss My Face Spearmint Breath Blast Mouthwash, which I will probably review soon. I am a bit shy to admit that I was never a regular flosser though - I am so lazy - but thanks to this challenge though, I was able to make this habit stick!
Before starting to use the new Crest and Oral-B products, I had to go to my dentist for a check up, and I am happy to report that I don't have any major problems, appart from my wisdom teeth that I will need to have pulled out soon - I am so scared!
I then proceeded to use all of the Crest and Oral-B Pro-Health products at least twice a day for four weeks, and I quite enjoyed my experience. Oral-B Triaction 5000 Rechargeable Toothbrush is just as nice as my old one, with its unique brush head design with 3 cleaning zones and its 5 customized modes - I use the whitening mode every day and I do notice a big improvement on my naturally yellow teeth! I like that Crest Clinical Plaque Control Toothpaste not only reduces plaque but also helps keep it from coming back, while also whitening teeth and freshening breath. Although I was pleased with the Invigorating Mint flavour, I honestly can't say Crest Multi-Protection Mouthwash is the most freshening and long-lasting mouthwash I have tried - I have yet to find a mouthwash that beats Scope Outlast on this point!
I am happy to report that when I returned to see my dentist after a month, she had absolutely nothing negative to say about my teeth - she still insisted that I get my wisdom teeth pulled out though - argh!
