About six weeks ago, the girls and I were packing for a weekend in Richmond, VA (at a homeschool convention). The plan was to leave straight from there to head to Ocean City, New Jersey for our annual beach trip. A few days before we were to leave, I started having this awful pain in my left jaw area. I attributed the pain to sinus issues, and quickly made a doctor’s appointment, where I pretty much begged for an antibiotic. It started kicking in while we were in Richmond – the jaw pain subsided and I was left with a horrendous toothache that brought me to tears. Not only was I taking the antibiotic, but I was also od’ing on Ambesol and Vicadin. Yikes.
By the time we got home from the beach, the pain had greatly subsided but my tooth area was still pretty tender and hurt when I brushed my teeth or chewed in that area. And right about that time, I received a box of goodies from Crest Pro-Health.
I immediately starting using the toothbrush, the toothpaste, and the rinse. Here’s a bit about each product:

The only rinse that helps prevent tartar build-up and cavities.
About Crest Pro-Health Toothpaste

Right away, I loved the feeling of the toothbrush. The flexible head and the cross-action bristles make me feel like I’m getting my teeth nice and clean.
At first, I wasn’t so sure about the toothpaste. It doesn’t make a nice lather like my regular toothpaste does. But, I’ve come to really appreciate it. I like the minty flavor and the fresh feeling that I have in my mouth after I’ve used it. What stuck out to me in the description was the part about helping to fight gingivitis. I started to wonder if maybe that wasn’t at least part of what I was dealing with in my mouth. Since using the toothpaste, I’ve seen much improvement. What was major pain when I would brush my teeth or chew is now a mild inconvenience. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not claiming that the Crest healed me – it could just be a situation of good timing. But, I’m feeling better and I’m going to continue using the Crest toothpaste in the hopes that I don’t have to go through that again!
I’ve never been a fan of mouthwash and rinse, but I’ve been faithfully using the rinse for several weeks now and I really like the way my mouth feels after using it. It leaves me with a clean, fresh feeling.
