The Today Show just had a segment about Crest Pro-Health Rinse and how it is causing problems for some of its users, namely brown staining, tongue pain, and altered taste.
Who wants that from a mouthwash?!
The FDA and Crest/Proctor & Gamble are claiming that this rinse and the accompanying toothpaste were properly tested and that “only a small number of people” have.
Why use anything that can damage you? Who wants stained teeth?
Good oral health care does not require mouthwash.
The young woman featured in the Today Show segment who had brown staining said it took 2 visits to the dentist to get the stains off. The good news, of course, is that the stains came off. The bad news is that Crest Pro-Health Rinse caused the stains.
Another woman said that Crest Pro-Health Rinse changed her sense of taste, that everything now tastes like Play-Doh! How awful!
Take good care of yourself; don’t over-do it with cleaning products, and read ingredients labels and corporate reassurances with a skeptical eye.
