"We wanted to give our consumers a new way to enjoy our products while providing them with the superior oral care benefits they expect from Crest," says Dr. Robert Gerlach, DDS, MPH, Research Fellow, P&G Worldwide Clinical Investigations.

Many people believe that they are doing everything they can to protect their mouths, but in reality, gingivitis, an early form of gum disease affects more then 50 percent of American adults.(1) If left untreated, gingivitis can lead to more serious forms of gum disease. Crest Pro-Health Invigorating Clean products protect your mouth against plaque and gingivitis. In a recent clinical study, 100 percent of people who used Crest Pro-Health Invigorating Clean Multi-Protection Rinse, Clinical Gum Protection Invigorating Clean Mint Toothpaste, Oral-B® Pro-Health Cross-Action Soft Toothbrush and Oral-B Glide Pro-Health Clinical Protection Floss together had reduced gingivitis in just 2 weeks.(2)

Crest Pro-Health Invigorating Clean includes:

  • Crest Pro-Health Invigorating Clean Multi-Protection Rinse offers consumers a unique rinsing experience with new flavor ingredients that provide an invigorating sensation during use and a lasting cool freshness after use. The new flavor experience helps signal that you are on the path to a healthy mouth. In a survey of over 100 Women's Health readers selected to receive free samples of a new Crest Pro-Health Rinse, 89 percent felt more confident about their next dental check-up after regular use of Crest Pro-Health Invigorating Clean Rinse.(3)

  • Crest Pro-Health Clinical Gum Protection Invigorating Clean Mint Toothpaste provides an invigorating sensation while helping to improve gum health. It includes an advanced formula that provides our highest level of protection against the plaque bacteria that can cause gingivitis. It is clinically proven to help reverse gingivitis in four weeks.
