Crest Pro-Health Invigorating Rinse Test Drive – Maintaining Oral Health

What kind of shape is your mouth in?  Is that a weird question to be asked?  Well, think about it.  We worry about our cholesterol, our blood sugar, our fat intake and so many other health related conditions but how often do we worry about the condition of our oral hygiene?  Are your gums healthy?  What do you do to ensure your mouth is healthy and remains that way?

Test Drive Crest Pro-Health

I am taking a challenge with Crest Pro-Heath Invigorating Rinse.  The invigorating rinse is supposed to kill germs, reduce plaque, help prevent gingivitis, keep teeth cleaner, freshen breath, and provide an invigorating sensation.  I’ve decided to test it and see if it holds true to it’s word.  I started using it this past Monday and so far, so good.

My Oral Hygiene Background

My personal oral hygiene leaves much to be desired.  It isn’t because I don’t brush – I do.  Every day.  Twice a day, when possible three times.  I have been using a mouthwash on and off for years, but it was not Crest.  I have gone through periods of regular flossing and not so regular flossing.  What did it get me?  A mouth full of fillings, a few root canals, a couple crowns, and the beginning of gingivitis.  I am nearly 45 years old and I am not ready for dentures.

My Promise

In order to be fair I am making a promise to brush twice a day – minimum.  Use Crest Pro-Health Invigorating Rinse at least twice a day.  Floss at least once a day.  It’s time to take back control over my oral health.  I’ll post again in a couple weeks to let you know any changes I’ve notice, if there are any.

Wish me luck!

    Unless you want your dentist to be driving a Mercedes while you are taking the bus take care of your teeth and gums. even a cleaning today is over $100.00.

  2. And make sure you visit your dentist 2x a year! So many people put it off! Good luck with getting healthier gums and teeth!

  3. Great challenge. I am going to have to look into getting some of that.

  4. Good luck Lisa. I’m guilty as well for not taking good care of my oral health. Thanks for this reminder.

  5. My husband is only 29 and has the same problem. His whole mouth of teeth has to be replaced. Dental work is so Darn expensive.

    Good luck with your goal, I’m sure you’re as motivated as my husband is. He now takes very good care of his teeth.

  6. I brush twice a day and I visit the dentist twice a year. BUT, I always forget to use mouth wash! Thanks for the reminder and sharing your post with us.

  7. I haven’t tried this one, looking forward to hearing your thoughts. I’m also wondering what it tastes like.

    Would love it if you checked my blog out! Have a great night.

  9. Amazing alternative. It is hard to ignore on loosing teeth. Dental reconstruction is really expensive.

  10. I’m a little disappointed with this “Mom Central Consulting” reviews on this product.

    I’ve read several, and NONE mention that this product has a high chance of killing taste buds. Now I say high because maybe there are a few that it doesnt do that to, but I havent met one yet that complains about taste buds being ‘numbed’

    I can use this stuff in the morning and even by lunch time food barely has a taste. Why a company like Crest would put out such a product is beyond me.

    Check out epinions, walgreens, etc and check out the reviews there and you will see the complaints on taste buds.

    Now I am aware that the reviewer on this website will probably say “it didn’t affect my taste buds”. While I don’t understand how it wouldn’t, then I think these reviews should have the whole household use the product and at least one person would have the taste buds complaint.

    I’m a normal product user, and really wanted to enjoy the product because it did leave my mouth fresh. I was trying hot fries (the snack) last night and yea I could barely taste them, so that was it for me.

    • Ed, although I respect other people’s opinions I do have to say this is my “go to” mouth wash and toothpaste. I’m not so sure that my taste buds have been compromised at all…and I have never heard of that before, but I guess some people may have more sensitive tastebuds.

  11. Oral health is something we seldom hear about compared to other areas of health and it is so important.With the combination of brushing, flossing and Crest mouthwash you should achieve optimum teeth and gum health.
