Starting today I will be taking part in the Power Oral-B Challenge! I got chosen to trail the PC500 Power Brush for one month to see if it can convert me, to using a power toothbrush over a manual one, forever. Late last week I received my Oral-B ‘Britain’s Brush Box’ which included the Oral-B PC500 Toothbrush, a Union Jack Washbag, a Best of British Trivia Game and a blue hand towel. Merci Oral- B ♥
Apparently power brushes are proven to remove twice as much plaque compared to a manual toothbrush and 9 out of 10 people who have tried a power toothbrush would not want to go back to a manual one!
Oral-B ambassador and dentist Dr. James Russell believes that after a month of using this toothbrush I should really feel that my teeth are cleaner and see that they are whiter than they were before.
To help me along the way in my challenge Dr. James Russell provided me with some handy tips:
♥ Floss: I must floss once a day to achieve optimum oral health
♥ Brush: I must brush twice a day for 2 minutes! Luckily Oral-B Professional Care 500 toothbrush comes with a clever little timer so help me with that.
♥ Curb Snacking: Watch the kinds of snack I consume. I should stick to foods like cheese, raw vegetables, nuts and breadsticks which are better for my teeth..(as apposed to chocolate and crisps I imagine! Gosh another reason not to have them haha)
♥ Avoid: Fizzy drinks, as they’re very sugary and acidic and erode tooth enamel. (ummm not sure I will be giving up my Diet Coke anytime soon, sorry Dr Russell!)
So after buying a shaving power adapter, because my bathroom doesn’t have that kind of plug, my power toothbrush is now ready and fully charged to be used! I will loyally use it or one month and will report back at the end of the challenge to let you know how I got on and give you my verdict! Also if you’d like to join me in this challenge, as part of National Smile Monh, the Oral-B 500 will be available at half price in the UK between March and May for only £22.50 at all major retailers.
Get set, ready…..GO! Let the challenge begin…
