Oral B is running a Love Your Gums campaign to educate about the importance of healthy gums. Recently, I signed up to the challenge with Britmums. Having used it for a week now this is how I feel about the Oral B Pro-Expert Premium Gum Protection toothpaste.
Since young, I have never wanted to look after my teeth and gums even though I had plenty of oral hygiene talks from school. The reason is I always bleed when I brush my teeth so am scared of brushing them. My gums have always look darker red than normal. I have never dealt with this problem until I went on a volunteer overseas trip to Thailand. We had raised funds in Singapore and bought over a few hundred toothbrushes and toothpastes for two schools in Thailand. While we were in Thailand, we taught the children how to brush their teeth and why we should look after our teeth. It was only then, I realised that I should not have avoided my gum problem and should deal with it.
Since then, I have regularly visited my dentist every six months and brush my teeth twice a day. Brushing should be for two minutes which is not a long time but I'm always in a rush and brush for about a minute. I am indeed very naughty! Our regular family toothpaste has always been Colgate Whitening. My teeth are yellow from not looking after them properly. So I use a whitening toothpaste.
With this challenge, I found out about this Oral B toothpaste. As well protection for gums, it also fights cavities, plaque, sensitivity, enamel and tartar. It whitens teeth and helps give you fresh breath. This toothpaste has a very strong mint flavour and leaves my mouth feeling very fresh. I hope using this toothpaste will protect my gums and keep them healthy!
