A sure-fire way to get your teeth super-clean
I might be dating myself here, but who remembers those little pink pills you’d get from the dentist that would stain your mouth—and the plaque you missed while brushing? I’ve always been a little obsessed with oral care, so I loved using them, but it’s literally been decades since I’ve had the pleasure of calling out my plaque in a big way.
Well, my much-beloved brushing ritual is back thanks to Plaque HD. The difference that this is a toothpaste that you use as usual, but it stains plaque blue/green (with plant-based ingredients) so you really have to brush well to send all of the color (and all of the plaque) on its way. In a nutshell, this toothpaste basically forces you to brush for the full recommended two minutes, and there’s nothing bad about that!
I was lucky enough to receive both versions to test: The Professional Plaque Identifying Toothpaste in “Fresh Mint” (which can only be purchased through these dentists and orthodontists) and the regular Plaque-Identifying Anticavity Toothpaste in “Berry Bubble Gum." I obviously gave the latter to my son, Sawyer (who is really excited to be mentioned in this post), and it’s made it a heck of a lot easier to get him to brush effectively.
Yes, these toothpastes are pricier than the Crest or Colgate you may be currently using, but think how much money you can save in the long run by taking better care of your teeth!
