When you’re standing in the toothpaste aisle, you’ll notice there are toothpastes for just about every need and personal preference. Looking at the many choices, it can be hard to tell which one is the best toothpaste for gum disease such as gingivitis. We’re going to offer a little guidance to help you when you’re searching for a toothpaste that can protect your gums.
When you want to help prevent gingivitis, you should look for a toothpaste with proven gum health benefits. Crest® PRO-HEALTH® Advanced Toothpaste is specially formulated with stabilized stannous fluoride to significantly improve gum health. It offers the same anti-cavity benefits as ordinary fluoride toothpaste, and its advanced formula delivers Crest’s highest level of protection against plaque bacteria. Plus, Crest® PRO-HEALTH® Advanced Toothpaste is clinically proven to help reverse the signs of gingivitis in 4 weeks.
With Crest® PRO-HEALTH® Advanced Toothpaste, you don’t have to sacrifice any other oral care benefits to get this level of gingivitis protection—its unique formulation also provides protection against cavities, plaque, tooth sensitivity, tartar buildup, plus it freshens your breath and provides excellent whitening benefits.
One thing you may also want to consider is a toothpaste that can reach plaque – and the millions of bacteria it contains – around the gum line as well. That way you’ll be getting a more complete clean and keeping your entire mouth healthier.
Adding an anti-gingivitis mouthwash to your gum disease prevention plan can make a huge difference. Remember to choose the best mouthwash for gingivitis that is right for you. Crest® PRO-HEALTH® Multi-Protection Mouthwash is an excellent complement to Crest® PRO-HEALTH® Advanced Toothpaste—it kills 99% of the germs* that cause plaque, gingivitis, and bad breath, without the burn of alcohol.
For gingivitis treatment that’s been proven as effective as chlorhexidine (a prescription treatment), you may also want to consider the breakthrough daily 2-step system, Crest® PRO-HEALTH® [HD]™, which provides gingivitis protection, in addition to noticeable whitening benefits.†
