Blue Plastic in Crest Pro Health Toothpaste


Those little blue specks in your toothpaste are very appealing and we might think they help freshen our breath, but in fact they are actually little tiny bits of Polyethylene plastic.  Crest adds them to some of their toothpastes for cosmetic reasons only.  They do not dissolve in the mouth and we have found little bits of plastic under the tissue in some patients.  It could cause some irritation, just like a popcorn hull can. 

A few other symptoms some patients have experienced with Crest Pro Health products include more tissue slough and lots more calculus and stain build-up on their teeth.
