Getting to the dentist is hard #CrestSponsored


Oh, the dentist. I love to hate it and hate to love it.

I’ve had some issues lately with finding a dentist that can and will see me. So, I’ve surpassed my 6-month mark. Fortunately, it’s only been a couple weeks past it, but still not good.

I love that feeling right after going to the dentist. The one where you rub your tongue on your teeth and they are squeaky clean. Only the dentist really seems to be able to get them that clean. However, I do pretty go in between. My teeth stay clean, look clean and remain cavity free, so I must be doing something right! In fact, every time I go to the dentist, I get compliments on how little to no plaque I have.

I think I’m blessed with healthy teeth because really, I just brush twice a day. And floss like once a month maybe twice (stop saying gross, I don’t know many people…really my mom is the only one..that actually floss every day!

Since I haven’t been to the dentist in a while, I’m hoping these products can tide me over.

I’m participating in the Crest and Oral-B Pro-Health Clinical Plaque Control Test Drive Program and testing these all out over the next couple weeks.)


  • Crest Pro-Health Clinical Plaque Control Toothpaste – kills plaque germs and slows down the growth of new plaque.
  • Oral-B Pro-Health Clinical Pro-Flex Toothbrush – removes up to 93% of hard-to-reach plaque using flexing sides which individually adjust to teeth and gums to clean areas where plaque growth begins.
  • Crest Pro-Health Clinical Rinse – Crest’s most advanced rinse formula ever. Keeps teeth 91% clean of plaque for up to 2 months after visiting the dentist. It also fights and helps reverse gingivitis in as little as 2 weeks and kills 99% of germs to improve breath.
  • Oral-B Glide Pro-Health Clinical Protection Floss – when used as part of a comprehensive dental routine, it is clinically proven to reverse gingivitis in just two weeks. Provides a minty cool feeling every time it’s used. Protects against bad breath and cavities. Slides up to 50% more easily in tight spaces than the leading floss. Shred resistant.

  1. Your BIL flosses every day—usually twice a day! I don’t do it very often, I am too rough on my gums with the floss. Oops. I’ll have to try this toothpaste…I like the squeaky clean feel, too!

  2. I floss every day. Or pretty close to it. I have to. I have teeth that perpetually get food stuck in them (mostly crowns). And I learned the hard way what not flossing will do. Yeah. I really hope my kids don’t pick up my bad dental hygiene habits that I had.

    My teeth have never been healthier. It’s too bad it took 15 cavities, 1 crown and 2 root canals to figure it out.

    1. Lately, I have been, too. I have a couple teeth that seem to have shifted and now food gets stuck all the time!

      I honestly think that teeth are more about genetics then dental hygiene…

  3. I really need to visit the dentist soon, but we don’t have dental insurance.

    1. I really don’t think dental insurance these days helps that much!

    2. A lot of places will offer breaks for those without insurance. Go get thee a cleaning. It’s cheaper than filling 15 cavities later. That was my mistake. Didn’t visit a dentist for about 5 years due to know insurance. The effects of no cleanings and such was 10 cavities, 1 crown and 2 root canals. $3,000 later. $150 every six months would’ve been cheaper.

  4. Flossing. Reminds me of a story that happened to me in my Dental class once. Lol…But I thought it was weird to floss everyday. 3 times a week is good enough for me!

  5. I hate going to the dentist but I try to go for the regular visits. It’s the whole poking at my gums thing that wants to make me go thought the roof but you are right the feeling after is awesome.

    1. My sister hates the fact that it’s metal in her mouth! Like hates it. I don’t mind because of the nice feeling.

  6. I NEED to to the dentist. I try to floss daily, but have not been using mouthwash since I ran out of it a week or two ago.

  7. I also have never had a cavity. I thought I was the only one. A good hygenist (sp?) makes all the difference in a dental experience.
