You cringe, roll over, and just wonder, "Why God why?!?!"
Okay, that was a bit melodramatic but you get what I'm saying right? Having sensitive teeth is not a joke.
Tooth sensitivity is a dental condition that causes discomfort or pain in teeth when encountering certain substances and temperatures. It occurs when the dentine underneath the tooth enamel becomes exposed, revealing small holes called tubules.
When the fluid inside these tiny tubules encounters something cold, hot, sweet, or sour, it can trigger the nerves inside the tooth and cause a short, sharp pain.
Last week, I was able to attend a launch with Sensodyne where they discussed ways and measures to prevent teeth sensitivity. Good thing my family and I already use Sensodyne so when we were asked to do a test, I passed with flying colors.
We were also put into groups and my group and I ended up winning because we were all competitive.
So, what are ways we can do to handle sensitive teeth at home?

1. Desensitizing toothpaste. When you use Sensodyne Rapid Relief, the unique technology in Sensodyne Rapid Relief toothpaste offers fast relief and long lasting protection to beat sensitivity. It has an active ingredient called stannous fluoride which enables faster blockage of the tubules. It also has an optimised polymer system that creates a gel-like scaffold which holds the stannous fluoride in place, preventing it from being washed away in the mouth.
2. Avoid or lessen the intake of highly acidic foods. Some examples are coffee, soda, and meat.
3. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush.
Tooth sensitivity will never completely go away but with proper handling and care, you can avoid it and enjoy your food and drink without sudden pains.
The Sensodyne Rapid Relief toothpaste retails at P208 SRP and is available at leading stores nationwide. For more information about Sensodyne Rapid Relief, visit sensodyne.com.ph.
