My family got the cool opportunity to try out the newest member of the Crest product line, new Crest® Gum DetoxifyTM toothpaste.  We had a crazy snowstorm and my package got lost in the mail for a few days, but we are almost at the 5 day mark of testing, and are smiling more! Our mouths just feel better.   Gum health is so important and often overlooked.  I worry about our family eating enough veggies, drinking enough water, and getting enough fresh air.  Oral health is just as important as these other healthy habits.   I think we do a good job of modeling good brushing behavior to our kids but I had never thought about our gums.  It was always about fresh breath and sparkling smiles.  Healthy gums keep your mouth happy  and your smile beautiful.


Gum problems can lead to other issues, including bad breath, tartar buildup, cavities and gingivitis.


Ways to keep your gums healthy include brushing twice daily, regular checkups and professional cleanings, flossing daily, using a mouthwash, and not smoking.


This year, Crest is making the first step of keeping your gums healthy easier and more effective with the launch of new Crest® Gum DetoxifyTM toothpaste. The revolutionary new paste is formulated with Activated Foam technology that reaches below the gum line where even the most diligent brushers may not be able to reach to significantly improve gum health.  In fact, ninety-nine percent of gingivitis patients showed reduced gum bleeding and inflammation in eight weeks after using Crest Gum Detoxify.


According to Crest, the new Gum Detoxify Toothpaste:

  • Goes around, and even below, the gum line for lasting gum protection
  • Seeks out and neutralizes harmful bacteria by penetrating hard to reach places even below the gum line
  • Gently cools gums during and after brushing
  • The Activated Foam in Crest Gum Detoxify is available in Deep Clean, Extra Fresh, Gentle Whitening and Two-Step varieties.


#ForGumsSake, you want a healthy mouth, don’t you?


I read about the product and seriously walked through 6 inches of Hilton Head Island snow to my mailbox hoping my package was there.  But the good news for you is – it’s now available at your local Walmart, Target and Kroger!
