I received the purple Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash. I use it both in the morning & in the evening after I brush my tooth. In the evening I floss before using Crest Pro-Health Mouthwash. I noticed the typical sting of the mouthwash, but I have felt a stronger sting with similar products. The longer I swished it around in my mouth the more intense the sting/burn became. The aroma of the Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash was pleasant, it’s a winterfresh mint kind of smell. I must have a cavity starting because once the mouthwash hit that area it hit a nerve. The bottle states to wait for food or drinks for 30 minutes, but by that time there is an unwanted taste in my mouth. My mouth felt clean, but that aftertaste was a bit much for me. I kept rubbing my tongue along my teeth because my teeth almost felt kind sticky, a film or protective coating.
My spouse uses mouthwash more often than I do, at work mostly. This was a welcome change to the other brands that he normally uses. He liked this product just as well, if not better than the brands. The plus side of Crest Pro-Health Mouthwash is that it is alcohol-free. There is no hard alcohol smell when you open the bottle. I noticed that there is a safety cap on the bottle, it must be gripped at the marks on the sides to twist off. This is good for those that have little ones who might be curious about the bright purple liquid in the bottle.
This mouthwash is an addition to the daily dental hygiene and the assistance of preventing activities in addition to regular dental exams.
What I Didn’t like about Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash:
- The stinging sensation the longer it stays in your mouth
- There is after taste that is left in your mouth.
- Recommended a wait of 30 minutes before having any food or drink.
What I Do like about Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash:
- There is no strong alcohol smell or taste. It’s 100% alcohol free
- Safety (twist) cap
- It does give a clean fresh feel to the teeth.
- The price is reasonable at $6
I would recommend this to family & friends. There is a certain amount of burning or stinging when using any mouthwash or oral rinse. However, Crest Pro-Health Advanced doesn’t have a strong burning sensation compared to other mouthwashes I have used in the past.
