I tried Crest Gum Detoxify (with gentle whitening), about four months ago. I would squeeze out a small amount, take some water, and use it as a swish and spit. It stopped my gums from ever bleeding, but very bad things were to come, and I never suspected this toothpaste until yesterday. I started having a burning mouth, prickly tongue and sore throat. I saw an ENT, Gastro guy, Allergist. I was sure that I had developed some sensitivity to the air around me. None of the MDs were of much help. They were baffled. I had started using this toothpaste as a gargle, in the past two weeks. Things got worse. My teeth became very hot/cold sensitive, and they NEVER were, before. The pain was excruciating.
This product jumped into my head, last night. Now that I have done the research, I know it's the culprit! Do NOT use this toothpaste. Don't let anyone you love use it. If it's in your house, throw it out, now! As someone else has posted, there should be a Class Action Lawsuit filed. I wasted lots of time and money on this. Crest needs to compensate everyone in here for their time, pain and suffering. It has been terrible, for me. I want to thank everyone who posted their experiences, here. You have headed me in the right direction. I only hope we all experience a complete recovery.
I've suffered from seizures for the last 13 years. My doctor assumed it was epilepsy and had me take a lot of seizure medicine twice a day. My argument was that it's impossible to "just start having epilepsy this late in life" and have seizures all day, every week! Especially when I was super healthy all my life. I did everything the doctor told me to do like stop drinking beer, stop eating processed meats, stay hydrated, take the right amount of meds, and I didn't take any other drugs "not even **". But I was still having seizures!
3 pills a day is what the doctor had me on, now I have problems going to the restroom, but the doctor never wanted to figure out the problem, just wanted to prescribe me more and more drugs. I told him I was not comfortable with drugs because they always have side effects, and they are not organic. So, I kept a closer look at the things I was eating, drinking, doing, and what could be causing my seizures. The last time I had seizures was Oct 15th 2022, I can’t prove it but I’m pretty sure I died! It took weeks to start thinking halfway normal again, and memory is like gold when you have seizures.
So, after a few weeks, I remembered the night before I had the seizures that I used (Crest) mouthwash for whitening teeth. It has hydrogen peroxide in it to help make teeth super white. I remembered swallowing just a tiny bit of it by accident the night before. I googled what happens when you ingest hydrogen peroxide and the answer I found should scare everyone! I emailed Crest and they said “Quit using the product” ...after 13 years of seizures, they tell me that now. Why is a deadly chemical allowed to be put in a product that is used every day? Why is it still being produced? Is this the cause of a percentage of all new epilepsy cases? Of course, I have quit using all tooth products that contain hydrogen peroxide, and I feel so much better. In fact, I’ve even slowly weaned myself off the seizure meds they had me on. And “NO” seizures!

I used this toothpaste for 3 days and stopped because I started to feel tingling/burning feelings around my gums. Now my gums are red, swollen, and painful. It feels like my mouth is slightly burning. I also got a canker sore on my tongue and have a sore throat. I've also noticed small areas of white globs on my teeth and gums like others. It seems the this toothpaste has way too harsh chemical amounts in its ingredients or something and is too abrasive. I am really hoping this all goes away with time as I've switched off the toothpaste. But I do not recommend putting this stuff in your mouth.
I used Crest Detoxify and my gums are on fire after two days. My dentist recommended throwing it in the trash. Based on the other reviews I see on here I am not the only one having used with this. The pain this has caused me is intense for a toothpaste.
In the beginning I thought it was awesome. After a few weeks I couldn't figure out why my mouth felt funny then my esophagus. Last week it caused chemical burns all over the inside of my mouth, tongue, and throat. I will not use any more Crest products.
This specific toothpaste (Gum Detoxify) made my teeth painful sensitive!!! 2 wks ago, I had my teeth cleaned & checked. Everything was fine, I don’t have any cavities or prob. Just sensitive gums, tried this Crest Gum Detoxify and notice that my teeth aches esp. to hot food & drinks! It’s awfully painful, that I thought I had some prob with my teeth but it’s not!! I immediately threw this in the garbage! Do not buy!!!
This toothpaste clogged My Father's pipes after using it. He's also had swelling and ringing in the Ears since using this toothpaste. It builds up on Your Toothbrush also. The Warning on the label worries Me. This needs Immediate Attention Please.
I like to try different toothpastes, especially any that freshen breath and are good for gum health. Saw this one and bought it two days ago. It has a pleasant minty taste and a somewhat gritty texture, but not rough at all. At 6.99 for a 4.1 oz tube, this is already pretty expensive. I've only had it two days, used it three times a day, and I'm already squeezing to get more paste out of the tube. I don't mind paying more for a good quality toothpaste. My mistake for buying a small tube, but this is just not enough product for the price.
Sore throat and tongue from using. Pretty intense discomfort. Thought that I was having a allergic reaction to something but couldn't figure from what. Has left me with a bad sore throat with burning tongue
I have been suffering with mouth sores and I have noticed the sores come up every time I use Crest Toothpaste. It causes me a lot of pain and I am unable to consume any food or drinks because of the pain. My doctor has prescribed me medication and I have sworn never to use Crest Toothpaste ever again.
