My teeth were looking a bit dull after using Colgate so I decided I wanted to upgrade to something stronger and saw Oral B whitening for half price. When I was brushing my teeth it was burning the whole time and I even had tears coming out- but I thought that’s how it should be for the “whitening” to be effective. I woke up the next day and around the sides of my tongue were swollen and burning. I couldn’t eat or drink anything without excruciating pain following. Used it once and was too afraid to brush my teeth for another 2 days to follow. Have switched back to Colgate. Definitely would not recommend, and definitely keep out of reach from children. It can do serious damage.
White residue and peeling layer of skin on the inside of my mouth shortly after brushing my teeth. It’s quite off putting when you’re talking and there’s white stuff in your mouth :(
DO NOT USE ORAL B TOOTHPASTE
After a visit to the dentist last week I was told I need to look after my gums a bit better so when I saw Oral B gum care range half price I thought I'd give it a go....
Bad idea - I noticed on morning 2 of using it i was getting white clumps in my mouth- i now realise that it was in fact skin peeling away around my bottom lip. Days 3&4 a weird sensation in my mouth & now today total agony - skin peeled away from inside of my bottom lip & sores around the corners of my mouth.
Since this has occurred I decided to do a little research & to my ...
Developed Ulcers & Sores in mouth from this Toothpaste
My husband & I developed multiple ulcers & sores in our mouths for approx 3 mths when we switched from Colgate to Oral B toothpaste. At the time we couldn’t work out why, then the ‘penny dropped’ when we realised it was the change in toothpaste. Oral B toothpaste seems to be missing an ingredient that kills bacteria which seems to be creating ulcers & painful sores. We have since switched back to Colgate & have not had a sore since. Oral B need to fix this problem as they portray themselves as the ‘dentists preferred’ dental care, but their toothpaste lets them down.
Horrible product, never had slime in my mouth from any other toothpaste, I've ditched Oral B. Possibly unsafe product, and these days not surprising, they pass poor quality for the sake of profit.
I bought the whitening accelerator by mistake, have used oral B whitening toothpaste for a couple weeks. Bought the accelerator by mistake - used it once and have now got ulcers all over my tongue. Won’t be using it again, I’ve giben one star because it won’t let me give no stars
Purchased in March 2019.
I have been using Oral-B fresh mint for about 4 years and loved it, until recently.
The recipe has been changed. The small gritty pieces that were in it and made my teeth feel clean and fresh, are gone.
WHY ? It's not the same anymore.
Purchased in February 2019 for $6.00.
Its like my gums and mouth start peeling
I brought this toothpaste last week. Within a day i noticed that my mouth and gums started peeling. Switched back to Colgate and no issues. To throw caution to the wind I used the Oral B again. Within 10mins the peeling started. This seems to be dangerous

Peeling skin in cheeks and gums.
I have used this product for years and loved it.However out of the blue a couple of months ago,strips of skin were peeling from the inside of my mouth.it always happened for a few hours after cleaning.I knew this was not normal so sought advice from google.I was amazed when I seen some of these comments.I have now changed my toothpaste and today everything was fine.I cannot believe that there is no warning on this product.I will never use again.
Needs to be discontinued
I, like many others have suffered with painful gums and mouth after using this product. I have a patch of exposed root which causes extreme pain and a high flouride toothpaste helps this but after trying this product it actually inflamed the area and as soon as it touched the root it was real agony. An hour or so later, thick white shedding from the mouth appears around the gums and is absolutely disgusting. If you use it before you'll have a tickly cough all night whilst the lining of your mouth runs down your throat. Very horrible toothpaste.
Terrible experience of using Oral B Pro Health toothpaste.
Burns gums and leaves skin peeling inside mouth and stringy white substance from gums after using Oral B. I will not purchase this product again.
Oral B whitening kit
I used this product for three weeks and it had no effect whatsoever on the colour or the condition of my teeth.
my gums turned white
step 2, the gel, burnt my mouth and turned my gums white. when the white finally disappeared my gums were left red in places and sore. no warning appears on the package. this product needs to be investigated and it does not appear to be safe based on the reviews here!!!
The toothpaste corrodes the lining of my mouth. My gums had been swollen for a week now and I'd switched to another brand of toothpaste. Brushing my teeth has never been this painful..
Now I know why it's always on promotion
I'm not sure if bleach is stronger than this damn thing.
Chew my mouth skins every time after brushing teeth.
Tried to google online to see if anyone complains this product, I realise that I'm one of a huge crowd. ;-(
Ulcers and gum peeling
I found this toothpaste hurt my gums and after a few minutes white stringy stuff accumulated in my mouth which i had to peel off and spit out. I had ulcers and worse inflammation than ever. Horrifying
Does its job.
Although different flavours may taste weird, it does its job. Every time after I brush, i feel as thought my teeth are stronger, whiter and cleaner than they ever were before.
Oral-B Pro Health is pretty good
I used Oral-B Pro Health whitening toothpaste with really good results. A dentist recommended Oral-B 3-D white as an alternative and I find the results just as good, if not slightly better. I drink two cups of tea and two cups of coffee per day and my teeth were getting that yellowed look (at 62 years of age it's what you probably expect) but after using these toothpastes twice a day the results are markedly whiter teeth. I shall continue to use this brand of toothpaste.
I cried for two weeks when it got discontinued
This toothpaste is the best I have ever had in my entire life. I can't find anything like it and I despise other toothpaste types. I honestly considered just stopping any tooth-brushing all together when it got discontinued.
Thought I had oral thrush.....
After buying this new tooth paste for our Thailand trip my partner and I stated to notice some peeling of the tongue and cheek skin. Me the caring partner did the right thing and asked doctor google. Turns out according to doctor google it was oral thrush. My partner fretting decided we were going to make a quick stop to the pharmacy to fix this oral dilemma. Turns out not oral thrush but burnt skin from the tooth paste we were using. Thanks to oral b 3D whitening both our mouths ended u looking like bulldogs chew toys.

What is in your toothpaste that causes my mouth and lips to shed skin for hours after using. I feel uncomfortable when I am out with friends having to suck up all this loose skin.
