Oral B – How Much Do You Love Your Gums?! : Challenge

Recently we have been taking part in the Oral B Love Your Gums Challenge with Britmums for the past few weeks.

For our Challenge we were provided with a full-sized tube of the new Oral B Pro-Expert Premium Gum toothpaste to try and review.

Why I Took Part

As a child, I was always led believe that if you brush your teeth twice a day the tooth-fairy would visit when you lost a tooth. The tooth-fairy knew when your teeth weren’t brushed.
Obviously as I grew up, I outgrew all them tales but they have stuck with me and have also ensured I have the best dental hygiene I can manage.

As a teenager I spent 5 years with braces, straightening my rather wonky teeth. This also fuelled my desire to keep my teeth healthy and clean.

Now I have children and I am also raising them to brush their teeth thoroughly every time. We also all visit the dentist on a regular 6/12 monthly interval.

I took part of this challenge to share my experiences and also my passion for good oral hygiene.

About Oral B Pro Expert

Currently Oral B are running a “Love Your Gums” campaign, raising awareness of the importance of healthy gums.

Did you know that bleeding gums are a sign of a serious gum issue? And left untreated, or uncared for could eventually cause tooth loss?

With the right information, products and oral health regime you can look after your gums more effectively and significantly reducing the risks of bleeding gums.

We have been testing out the new Oral B toothpaste for 2 weeks now, I have occasionally suffered with swollen, bleeding gums ever since my teenage years and a major thing I have noticed is that my gums haven’t bled nor been swollen for nearly a week whilst trying this new product!

Whilst protecting your gums, this toothpaste also covers all the areas your normal toothpaste does too.

  • Fights Tartar
  • Reduces Plaque
  • Whitens Teeth
  • Helps Against Sensitivity
  • Helps Protect, Prevent Against The Causes Of Gum Problems
  • Freshens Breath
  • Protects The Areas Dentists Check Most
  • All Round Protection.

Also this toothpaste is highly recommended for pregnant women, as a pregnant woman has a 1 in 2 chance of developing gum problems during pregnancy.

I really recommend trying this toothpaste out for yourself, if you show any of the signs of gum problems. See for yourself the wonderful results.
