How do I Open the Crest Mouthwash bottle?

What to Do if I Swallowed Mouthwash? 
If you, or a child, should swallow a small amount of fluoride mouthwash (or any other type), there's no reason to panic, but do take care to avoid it happening again by taking some of these steps:

  1. Supervise Children. Don't let children use a mouthwash unsupervised. It has been recommended that children between ages 6 and 12 need to supervised when they use a mouthwash. Many companies use child-resistant caps to help you out. Be sure they spit it out. Children younger than 6 years may have trouble controlling the swallowing reflex, so mouthwash is not recommended for young children.
  2. Pay Attention. Don't let family members distract you when you're performing your oral care routine; distraction might make you forget to spit and you may swallow the mouthwash by mistake. Go into the bathroom and shut the door.
Swallowing small amounts of mouthwash may leave you feeling a bit queasy or may even cause diarrhea, but these symptoms should pass. However, if your child or someone you know overdoses on mouthwash by drinking and swallowing a large amount, take these steps:
  1. Check The Label. Check to see which of these potentially poisonous products the mouthwash contains: fluoride or ethanol. Severe symptoms of a mouthwash overdose related to these ingredients may include dizziness, drowsiness, trouble breathing, or, in serious cases, convulsions or a coma. In severe cases, head for the emergency room, and bring the mouthwash bottle with you if possible.
  2. Seek Help. Call the National Poison Control Center at 1-800-222-1222 for quick, confidential help. Do not try to make the person who swallowed the mouthwash vomit it up. Instead, be sure you have information about the victim's age, weight, and the type and amount of product swallowed. It's very important to have the product close by so you can tell the operator the specific ingredients.

This Mouthwash Is AMAZING!

I've tried other mouthwash products in the past. Some of them are okay but I pretty much had the same problems with everyone I tried, bitter taste & burning sensation especially when rinsing the product out of my mouth. But I thank God Crest put out this Gum Care Cool Wintergreen Mouthwash! Not only has it helped my sensitive Teeth, it has helped me stop the bleeding gums I seemed to always have after I brushed my teeth & no more bitter burning when I rinse. Now it's more like breathing in fresh mountain air on a beautiful morning. One month in to using this product and I'm truly amazed at the results. Thank You Crest For Helping Save My Gums And Teeth.

Yes, I recommend this product.

excellent edition to gum detoxify toothpaste

I purchased crest gum care mouth wash after a dental visit told me I had signs of early gingivitis and needed to do a better job brushing. I immediately ran out after seeing a commercial for this mouth wash and im truly amazed at the results. Within about a week the bleeding and the redness of my gums was reduced by 95%. The mouthwash doesn't burn and it has an really nice clean after taste. I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone with sensitive gums like myself.

Yes, I recommend this product.

Crest Gum Care just completes the Job!

I have always used Crest Mouthwash but I recently found Crest Gum Care on the grocery store shelf and I purchased 33 oz. bottle. It is a pure bottle of Gold after brushing and flossing and a good rinse of Gum Care my mouth feels so clean and my dental checkups are wonderful. Dentist says my gums look better less bleeding and gums look healthier. Dental work on a limited income is not cheap so any money I can save with coupons or good checkups are just money in my pocket. I thank you for helping the bleeding gum problem in this old world.

Yes, I recommend this product.

Great minty taste.

Been using for about a month and I never understood gum care much. I mean i bursh daily but my gums would always bleed. This mouth wash has helped control the bleeding when I do brush with a great lasting minty freshing taste left in your mouth. I have for years always used mouth wash before and after brushing. It has always helped me swish things between my teeth out before brushing to get a better brush. Went to the dentist and he says my teeth and gums are looking great!

Yes, I recommend this product.

Fresh and clean

This product left my mouth feeling fresh and clean for hours after use. Size of the product was amazing and should have lasted me much longer than my daughter let it (she wanted to mix it with charcoal for her teeth THE WHOLE BOTTLE) so with the week that I got to use it I will be buying another one because I enjoyed the clean feeling it left my mouth with and how there wasn't a burn to it.

Yes, I recommend this product.
