Crest and Oral b products Review — Pro-health Clinical Plaque Control Regime

Crest and Oral-B — 4 products Designed to Work Together

Crest and Oral B Products in the Pro-Health Line-up

4 Crest and Oral B products Reviewed

still blondeThe Chief Blonde Remarks:  I had the opportunity to review four Crest and Oral B products in the Pro-Health Clinical Plaque Control Lineup.  These products were:

  • Oral-B Pro-Health Clincal Pro-Flex Toothbrush
  • Oral-B Pro-Health Clincal Oral Rinse
  • Crest Pro-Health Clinical Plaque Control Toothpaste
  • Crest Pro-Health Clinical Protection Floss
Watch the Video below to see the Chief Blonde’s full reaction to each of the products:

I will be taking the time this fall to use all these Pro-Health products in tandem in order strive to improve the dental health.  Women over 45 know that dental health becomes even more important as we age, especially avoiding plaque build-up.  I have never followed a regime like this before, but with 4 products all designed to complement each other I feel it should be easier.  My favorite product was the Crest Pro-Health Clinical Protection Floss!  I loved this floss because it lived up to its claim of being 50% easier to slide through my teeth!  I always shred dental floss, and this floss went through my toughest crevices between my teeth with ease…Wow..I just loved this product. To learn more visit the Crest and Oral-B Pro-Health Clinical Plaque Control website.

Would you consider a 4 step Dental Regime like the Crest & Oral B Pro-health Group of Products if it helped to improve your dental health?

“I wrote this review while participating in a blogger review campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Crest and received product samples to facilitate my candid review. Mom Central Consulting sent me a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.”
