Health | Sensitive Teeth SOS Kit With Sensodyne*


Hi blog friends!!

Today we're talking teeth!

My teeth have always been a massive source of anxiety and low self-esteem for me. When I was younger I had braces and when I had them taken off my dentist (more like con artist/absolute moron) left all the glue on my teeth and being young I didn't say anything because I thought it wouldn't be a big deal, but the years passed and my teeth began to get in a really bad state, to the point where I didn't want to go to school or go outside because they were so horribly discoloured (brushing them didn't seem to make a difference and I would brush my teeth 5 times a day sometimes). 
That was until I went to the dentist recently and she used her terrifying scraper thing to grind the glue of my teeth and I could not believe the result. Not only were my teeth so much whiter they looked so shiny and new! The dentist told me the discolouring was due to the build up of bacteria in and around the glue but once it was taken off it was goodbye bacteria and hello new smile!

But whilst having to deal with that, another thing I have struggled with throughout my life is sensitive teeth. 
I have sensitive teeth because I constantly clench my teeth together, sometime I don't even know I'm doing it but this wears away the enamel which in turn exposes the dentine layer of my teeth causing sensitivity. 
I would say my sensitivity is moderate for example really cold drinks sometimes hurt but eating ice cream is fine! 
Having sensitive teeth is never nice though as it makes you feel like you can't enjoy some of the things people with non sensitive teeth take for granted.



Well, step in this little saviour, Sensodyne's Repair & Protect toothpaste*. 
This toothpaste has literally changed my teeth, before I started using this toothpaste my teeth were moderately sensitive and now I can't even feel a thing. I use it with my Sensodyne medium bristle toothbrush* which is one of the softest toothbrushes I have tried! It doesn't feel abrasive on the gums and is small enough to reach right to the back of my teeth and get in all the nooks and crannies  The toothpaste has a really nice flavour and leaves my teeth feeling squeaky clean (side note this is not a whitening toothpaste but there is a whitening toothpaste in the range). 
To top it all off I use the Sensodyne cool mint mouthwash* which to me tastes kind of fruity/spearminty and as gross as that sounds it is very pleasant and gives me fresh breath all day plus long lasting sensitivity care. 
The way these Protect & Repair items work is by seeking out the teeth that are sensitive and creating almost a second tooth around it to stop the sensitivity.


Since using these products I have been able to eat and drink anything hot or cold with no sensitivity to hold me back. 
So if you suffer from sensitive teeth I would definitely recommend trying the toothpaste and the rest of the range for that matter.



One piece of advice I will give you before you go is...

HAVE REGULAR DENTAL CHECK UPS!!!! 

Honestly my teeth were in a right state before I went and now I feel so much more confident, you will not regret it and I know that most normal humans hate the dentist but seriously, healthy teeth means a healthy you!!!

Lots of love
