P&G oral care brands tap Tiffani Thiessen to raise awareness about gum disease
NEW YORK Procter & Gamble’s Crest and Oral-B brands have kicked off National Gingivitis Awareness Month and partnered with Tiffani Thiessen, the star of "White Collar," to help educate consumers about the early gum disease, which affects more than 50% of American adults.
The brand also has introduced a new member to the Crest Pro-Health family: Crest Pro-Health clinical gum protection. This new formula provides Crest’s highest level of protection against the plaque bacteria that can cause gingivitis, and with regular use, it is proven to help reverse gingivitis in four weeks.
"We developed Crest Pro-Health clinical gum protection with newly balanced stabilized stannous fluoride chemistry that provides an increase in antibacterial power, resulting in our highest level of protection against plaque bacteria that cause gingivitis and helps reverse it after four weeks of regular use," stated Robert Gerlach, research fellow at P&G Worldwide Clinical Investigations.
To support National Gingivitis Awareness Month in September, Crest will engage in a variety of activities, including a partnership with Thiessen and the release of an educational video featuring Dr. Travis Stork of CBS’ "The Doctors." Consumers also can visit CrestProHealth.com to test their "gingivitis IQ" and learn more about gingivitis and how it may affect them.
In August, Crest conducted meetings with congressional representatives on Capitol Hill to educate them about gingivitis and generate further action and support of National Gingivitis Awareness Month.
