In the last few weeks (maybe it’s been a couple of months now) my wife and I have been working on improving our health. Many would look at what we’re doing as just being a diet, but I look at it more as just trying to be smarter about how I take care of my body. Because honestly, I haven’t really put much intentional effort into that task in the last 30 years.
One of the areas I’ve decided to refocus my efforts has been on my dental care. Growing up I remember numerous people telling me I had nice teeth. They were straight. No odd gaps. No odd shapes. With that came the encouragement to take care of them.
I’ve always brushed regularly. Sometimes I would use mouthwash and I would rarely ever floss. What is it about flossing that’s so annoying? In all my efforts though, I was never real disciplined about my efforts. I’m trying to change that.
I saw an opportunity to give Crest Pro-Health Invigorating Clean Multi-Protection Rinse a try and decided I’d add that to regimen. In the past I’d used Scope or Listerine, but had never tried Crest. Although not a part of this promotion, I also added Crest’s Pro-Health tooth paste to my efforts as well.
I’ve been using these products for the last couple of weeks and I think I can already tell a general difference in the health of my teeth, gums and mouth. The obvious results of fresher breath is there, but my mouth also feels cleaner.
I’ve still got a couple more weeks to go for this campaign before it’s over, so I’ll have another follow-up post at the end of everything. But I can tell you right now. Even when the campaign is over, I think I’ll be keeping these new, improved habits of mine on the list of actions to take for a healthier me.
