My teeth are my nemesis. I have never been happy with my teeth. First, as a tween I felt I had buck teeth. (I didn’t) Then I felt my teeth weren’t straight enough. Then I got braces and that fixed that problem. But my teeth have never been super strong, or white enough or just perfectly lovely as some smiles are prone to be. I have more cavities than I’d like despite brushing and flossing regularly but my enamel is something that for whatever reason is just not strong enough. My health issues have been well documented here. I am open about the fact that I have Crohn’s Disease and I feel like it has had a great impact on the strength of my teeth. This past 15 years, that has looked like me getting extra fluoride treatments at the dentist, to strengthen these babies. And this past 15 years I have also been on a running quest to find toothpaste that helps the sensitivity issue.
My teeth are sensitive. My gums in the back near the molars on the bottom left side have been sensitive for a long time. I have tried many toothpastes and treatments to help the sensitivity. This time of year hot foods and cold foods really smart. There’s no other way to explain it. You eat something cold and get that instant jab of nerve pain in the bottom side of your mouth. I hate that. But in terms of challenges, teeth are a cosmetic and small issue. I have been fortunate to live through some severe health crises with my Crohn’s Disease and this past year with the loss of my Mom there have been many difficult and challenging times. But, Moms and Dads know that life throws challenges into your path, obstacles that sometimes seem insurmountable. But when you have kids there is no time to sit and think about all the hardships you faced, or still struggle with. Parenting is not a thing that you can put on pause. So you find some tools and strategies that help. You find friends and look for the bright side and you find your strength and keep showing your children every day resiliency.
I found Colgate Sensitive recently and it is a tool I can use to immediately stop the sensitivity in my teeth and in the gum area of my mouth. Congate Sensitive has Pro-Argin and it also whitens teeth. It’s multi-tasking toothpaste. Must have been invented by a Mom. That’s my kind of toothpaste.
Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief (CSPR) toothpaste is formulated to shield and repair sensitive teeth for long-lasting protection (with regular use). Most other sensitivity toothpastes contain potassium nitrate, which primarily numbs the tooth nerve, masking the pain of tooth sensitivity, and will take 2 weeks of use before relief is delivered. Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief toothpaste works immediately by plugging the channels that lead to the sensitive tooth nerves, to block the pain. With regular use, it builds a long-lasting protective barrier that acts like a seal against sensitivity.
Right now Colgate is asking people with sensitive teeth like me to take their challenge.
