Time sure does fly in the battle against plaque and gingivitis. A few weeks ago, my family reviewed the Crest and Oral-B Pro-Health FOR ME line of products aimed at children. This time, we're reviewing the newest member of the Crest Pro-Health family, Crest Pro-Health Clinical Gum Protection.
Crest Pro-Health Clinical Gum Protection is a new, advanced formula that provides the highest level of protection against plaque bacteria that cause gingivitis and is clinically proven to help reverse gingivitis in just four weeks. I don't know about you readers out there but I fear these two words...plaque and gingivitis. I've heard some horror stories about gingivitis...they make me shake in my boots!
If you'd like to know more about gingivitis, read this really well laid out webpage filled with information on it (gingivitis link). While you're at it, test your gingivitis IQ...it's actually a really interesting short quiz. Thankfully, I passed! Here's one tricky question from the test: After a professional dental cleaning, how long does it take for plaque to re-form on your teeth? I couldn't believe it was a few hours...I mean, come on...maybe I should bring my toothbrush with me wherever I go!
I LOVE this toothpaste and floss. I've been using it for over 5 days and I really can already tell a difference. The toothpaste is thicker and makes your teeth feel like they were professionally cleaned. The floss is nice and minty. It also slides through my tight teeth and I have yet to shred it with my pointy teeth.
