A few months ago I talked about two fantastic brands that I use in my personal and professional life, Crest and Oral B. As a dentist, I see kids and adults come in with severe gingivitis and accumulations of plaque in their mouths. After they have their teeth cleaned by the hygienist, they remark how they wish they could keep their teeth “professionally clean” all year round. I know how great it feels to have your teeth cleaned – your teeth glisten, all the plaque is cleaned away, and you walk away with the confidence of knowing you have a healthy smile. When they tell me how they could keep this feeling, I tell them the truth – it is easy to keep your teeth “professionally clean”.
It is easy to keep your teeth clean between your twice-a-year cleaning. For me, I have a dental regimen of flossing, brushing, and using an oral rinse on completion. I also make sure that I not only brush but I brush for a full two minutes. Too many people think they can get the fresh feeling by brushing for 30 seconds..not so! If you are unsure of how long two minutes is then set a timer. For my daughter, I keep a timer in her bathroom and when it goes off, she knows I will stop brushing her teeth.
New on the market, are Crest and Oral B products that when used together will not only reduce plaque but keep plaque at bay. The Crest and Oral B Pro Health Clincal Plaque Control incorporates the following four products: Crest Pro-Health Clinical Plaque Control toothpaste, Glide Pro-Health Clinical Protection Floss, Oral B Pro Health Clinical Pro Flex toothbrush, and Crest Pro Health Clinical Advanced Oral Rinse. I plan to be following my journey to see my plaque reduction as well as see if these products helps plaque from coming back. I have started my journey a few weeks ago but you will have to wait to see the results….
Pro Health Clinical also came out with an Olympic Games Sweepstake:
