Horrific burning, stinging and peeling of inside of mouth and gums
If I could give zero stars I would. I intend to formally write to Oral-B and lodge a complaint about the affects this toothpaste had on me. As soon as I started using it my gums and inside of my mouth began stinging. After brushing only twice I have ulcers under my top lip, under my bottom lip, and around the sides of the inside of my mouth. The salivary gland underneath my tongue is completely irritated and blocked (having formed a bubble) due to the irritation. This product should be immediately recalled. Oral B are continuing to sell a product that affects the health of consumers and this is prima facie negligent.
Leaves residue after brushing
Despite providing nice value, the toothpaste leaves several white strings of residue in my mouth after brushing. It happens after every brush, and from three different tubes bought while they were on sale. Seeing as many others are experiencing the same issue, its unlikely just me or just this batch.
Don’t trust it
I’m silly because I continued to use this product for some months, and always had the same problem. The inside of my mouth would peel after brushing my teeth, even to the point of inhibiting my ability to talk because I was trying to deal with strands of skin in my mouth. Keen to improve the enamel of my teeth, but I am over this product. It has to be questioned why this effect happens!

Never ever ever again. Ordered two and have just been to the store to buy another brand instead.
Never again. I ordered 2 of these, because I thought Oral B was one of the better options. But this toothpaste is awful and causes so much discomfort?! I went to the store to buy another brand today - after only a few days with this toothpaste - and I am not someone to waste things. But I will not be using the two I ordered. I am not sure if it is my mouth peeling, or film left from the toothpaste, but whatever it is; it leaves a horrible film inside your mouth. I strongly recommend not buying this toothpaste and that is coming from someone who never bothers to leave reviews.

as good as any
this is normal, good quality toothpaste, a good product, well made.
made in Germany, so with the normal high German manufacturing standards
and sold by both Coles and Woolworths,
sometimes very cheaply at about half price.

Terrible. My mouth is SO SORE
Used Oral B a few times. Noticed my gums started. Stinging and mouth peeling. Woke up following day to a swollen top lip. My mouth is still recovering. I have ulcers under my tongue and it hurts to brush. My gums are red raw now and bleed. Horrible product.
I used to love the old Oral B range of toothpaste and used it for quite some time. Then this Pro Health one came out and Im gutted that I cant use it, as it does make my teeth white. However, it makes my inner lip peel like mad and gives me the worst ulcers under my tongue and on the inside of my lip and cheeks. My mouth hurt like crazy. And this was only after a few uses; like within a week! Will never buy again - extremely disappointed.
Awful. Sore mouth and peeling gums
Ive been using this product for around 1 month now, and had peeling gums and inside of my cheeks. My dentist told me to switch to a new one but I carried on using it until it ran out. After a couple more weeks I started getting sores on the insides of my bottom lip and around my teeth. Never using this product again, absolutely awful and made my mouth sting when brushing. Please dont use this product.

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

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.

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.
