Oral B love your Gums!

Tooth hygiene is important but not more so than in pregnancy. I know this as I lost a tooth in my last pregnancy, yes lost a tooth! I am only in my twenties! It all stemmed from my first pregnancy and my teeth took a big hit 3 teeth crumbled, and I sadly at the time didnt have a dentist till some time after, I was young and didn't really understand the importance to looking after my teeth.

So when I finally went to the dentist I spent alot of time in the dentist chair trying to correct the damage caused by my brital teeth. So for my 2nd pregnancy I made sure I had regular appointments and looked after my teeth, but sadly one time I noticed was a little wobbly and it just fell out! My dentist couldn't save it and I am now left with a gap until one day when I can afford to fix it!  I was sad and made to be the butt of many jokes by my husband. fortunately its not to near the front so not to noticeable.

We recently have been reviewing Oral B's Pro Expert Premium Toothpaste, now being in my third pregnancy I definitely know the importance of tooth hygiene. We have been using it both me and my husband and I for one have noticed the difference from our usual tooth paste, my teeth have stopped bleeding so much and feel clean. So far my teeth have suffered no damage this pregnancy!

My husband also has noticed the difference another member of the family with crumbling teeth and has had reduced pain in his teeth. We definitely will buy this toothpaste again as if it saves us a trip to the dentist we will be saving the pennies. The only thing my husband wasn't fond on was the taste, hes more of a minty fresh toothpaste guy, I wasn't to fussed it tasted better than some other pro gum toothpastes.
