If you have sensitive teeth, you know what a challenge it is to get through the day without wincing in pain at least once. A sip of hot coffee, a scoop of your favorite ice-cream, even a tiny particle of seemingly harmless food that makes its way to the wrong place at the wrong time can cause sudden discomfort. The worst part is, sensitivity can come out of nowhere at times!
I grind my teeth. I have since I was a kid. As an adult, I’ve gotten a bit better at controlling it. I tell myself before bed that I’m not going to do it. It seems to work…sometimes. It really depends on the kind of day I’ve had. If my day was particularly difficult or I’m extremely anxious when I go to sleep, no amount of mental exercises stop the grinding
My bruxism (the clinical name for teeth grinding) causes my sensitive teeth. I’m lucky, because most days its pretty tolerable. If I have a particularly bad night, though, it’s followed by a particularly sensitive day.
Get double the relief with the Colgate® Sensitivity Toothbrush + Built-In Sensitivity Relief Pen
Dealing with sensitive teeth has never been easier, thanks to Colgate® Sensitivity Toothbrush + Built-In Sensitivity Relief Pen! It is sheer brilliance! Of course, you would expect Colgate® to come up with the perfect toothbrush for people with sensitive teeth. After all, protecting your enamel is pretty much their business! They’ve taken it a step further, though, and coupled their Colgate® Sensitivity Toothbrush with an amazing Built-In Sensitivity Relief Pen that delivers relief right to the source of your pain.
How does it work? Using the Colgate® Sensitivity Toothbrush + Built-In Sensitivity Relief Pen is really easy. First, brush as usual with the extra soft toothbrush. I recommend using the Colgate® Enamel Health™ Multi-Protection Toothpaste because it not only cleans your teeth and freshens your breath, it also helps protect against enamel erosion and further sensitivity with twice daily use.
After brushing, take your pen out of your toothbrush. Then just twist the knob on the bottom of the sensitivity relief pen until you see the gel appear. Apply that gel right on your sensitive tooth and gently massage for a minute. That’s it. You don’t even have to rinse! Put the pen back inside the brush and you’re on your merry way! The gel features an exclusive Pro-Argin™ technology. What does that mean? I didn’t know either, so I looked it up. Basically, this proprietary technology actually creates a seal against sensitivity. It’s clinically proven to relieve sensitivity right at the source, with continued twice-daily use.
I really love the convenience of the whole system. The pen is super easy to twist out of the toothbrush. When you’re done, it’s just as easy to slide it back in and lock it into place. I was also really pleased with the flavor of the gel and overall texture. I was afraid it would taste medicinal or feel weird. It tastes minty and has a nice cooling feel to it when you first apply it. Once you massage it in, it doesn’t leave behind any residue that I could feel.
