Crest Pro Health Mouthwash Review (Complete, Clean Mint)

New Crest Pro Health Mouthwash in Clean Mint is an Anticavity Fluoride Rinse that comes in a pleasant clean minty flavor that is Alcohol FREE. Crest claims that the New Pro Health Complete Mouthwash strengthens and rebuilds enamel, cleans gums and teeth, refreshes breath and kills bad breath germs without the burn of alcohol. For a mouthwash that contains no alcohol, I think that the active ingredient in Crest Pro Health Fluoride Rinse is as effective as any other fluoride rinse for fighting cavities and the squeeze and turn cap on the current bottle (December, 2001) is shaped in a way that someone with arthritis could easily open it without too much discomfort …which is a nice feature! Overall, this mouthwash is not considered a value mouthwash although the ingredients aren’t much different than other fluoride rinses. However, Crest Pro Health Mouthwash is a Procter & Gamble Product–and P&G is infamous for distributing money-saving coupons to the public on a regular basis.

Ingredients in Crest Pro Health Mouth Rinse VS ingredients in Generic Antiseptic Mouth Rinses (What’s the difference?)

Most Generic Antiseptic Mouthwashes contain a high percentage of alcohol content as well as Menthol Active ingredients that prevent plaque, gingivitis and do not contain fluoride–whereas the active ingredient in Crest Pro Health prevents cavities with fluoride. Additionally, antiseptic mouth rinses can appear to be cloudy looking if not stored at room temperature. This doesn’t affect the antiseptic ingredients properties, however. Aside from the different oral care treatment purposes, the most notable difference between an antiseptic mouthwash and Crest Pro Health Mouthwash ingredients is the burn and irritation levels one experiences when using the antiseptic rinse versus Crest Pro Health rinse. Rinsing with Crest Pro Health Mouthwash is a more pleasant experience.
