Ask and Ye Shall Receive... An Oral B Power Toothbrush

I went to the dentists last month, and found out that I have the beginning stages of gingivitis. I've heard it before from my previous dentist, but she never gave me any suggestions on what to do about it, other than keep brushing and flossing. My new dentist suggested an aggressive professional cleaning schedule (every three months), and that I use a power toothbrush.

He mentioned that they conveniently sold them there, so I didn't have to take the time to drive to the store. (how nice of them!) First of all, I'm a power toothbrush skeptic, and second of all... I'm going to try to get one free, first!

So I wrote to the Oral B, and asked if I could get a review product and write an ongoing review throughout my next dental appointments. All they could say was "no," right? And they did say no; at least the guy who emailed me said, "no." I thought, "Oh, well, I'll just spend the $20." Then imagine my surprise when I received a coupon for a free product of my choice in the mail! Awesome!!

I bought the Oral B Vitality, and used it for the first time last night. It felt really great! It was like a gum massage, and my teeth felt really clean and slick afterward. According to the product and my dentist, the power brush is supposed to clean under edge of the gums better.

After my next dentist appointment, I'll let you know what he says!

If you want a $3 off coupon, you can visit the website, and fill in some information.

How cool that you were able to get a free one. Good job!

I used to work for a periodontist, and we usually saw people who were too far gone for simple measures. I'm so glad yours was caught early. :)
