REACH Oral Care Review!!
Having a former dental assistant for a father, oral care was always very important in our family. Growing up, though, I didn't realize just how important it really was. At least, not until I had my first cavity, and needed a filling. That opened my eyes to how necessary it is to keep my teeth and gums in good health. I recently received a pack of products from REACH brand. The pack had 2 REACH by Design Toothbrushes, 2 Total Care & Whitening Toothbrushes and a packet of Total Care Floss.
The Whitening toothbrushes have a unique design that includes Calcium Carbonate that does more than just clean your teeth. It also removes stains, and helps whiten for brighter, whiter teeth! I also enjoy the "tongue cleaner" on these toothbrushes, as that is something that often gets left out when discussing oral care.
The REACH by Design brushes are also unique. They have an angled neck that makes it so much easier to brush in those hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. And, they are the only "designer toothbrushes" I've ever seen! There are 8 limited edition designs, ranging from plaid to polka dots, and zebra stripes to camo.
The Total Care Floss is the only floss with flexible Micro-Grooves technology. This floss really works great, and has a fresh minty taste. It literally glides between your teeth, and removes any plaque buildup.
"As a pioneer in oral care for more than a century, Johnson & Johnson Healthcare Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. constantly strives to offer new innovative products that can help consumers live healthier lives. The NEW REACH® by design™ Toothbrush and REACH® TOTAL CARE Floss are designed with a purpose - to help oral care conscious consumers fight against plaque through superior cleaning
Four studies were conducted for the NEW REACH® TOTAL CARE Floss to determine efficacy. Clinical results showed that the NEW REACH® TOTAL CARE Floss removes up to two times more plaque than Glide® floss products. Additionally, a consumer comparison clinical test found that the NEW REACH® TOTAL CARE is a flexible, shred-resistant floss that slides as easily as Glide® Original Mint.
For the NEW REACH® by design™ Toothbrush, one-day use clinical studies and a four-week clinical study were conducted to determine the amount of plaque removed by brushing. Results of the one-day studies showed that the NEW REACH® by design™ Toothbrush removes up to 90 percent of plaque in places that are hard to reach and more plaque than the leading toothbrush. In the four-week study, the NEW REACH® by design™ Toothbrush removed more plaque and improved gum health better than Colgate® 360°** toothbrush following 30 days of use."
