I love it when I’m approached for a collaboration by a brand that I already use (and love!) Here’s an interesting fact about me that you may not know…as a child I had braces for longer than I care to remember – seriously, something like 8 years on and off. I can’t remember exactly how long, it’s a part of my childhood that I’m trying to block out… My braces came off just in time for our matric dance and it was the best day ever!
The downside was, my teeth were EXTREMELY sensitive after the braces came off. Ice cream, a glass of cold water, ice – all of these were off limits. I grew up in Kakamas, where the temperature easily reaches 49C on a normal summer’s day. So, a plan had to be made. I wanted to eat ice cream and drink ice water! My orthodontist recommended Sensodyne to help with the sensitivity and boy oh boy, what a game changer it was. So when Sensodyne asked me to help spread the word about how their products can help relieve teeth sensitivity and make life better, I was happy to oblige.
Did you know that Sensodyne was founded in 1961? That’s more than half a century ago! And I’m sure you know that Sensodyne is the brand most recommended by dentists for sensitive teeth. It has a clinically proven formula to help relieve the pain caused by sensitive teeth – the stabbing pain experienced when you eat or drink anything cold. So, what causes sensitive teeth? In some cases, it’s due to gum recession caused by over-brushing or poor brushing. The exposed part becomes sensitive, and also the places where there’s plaque build up due to poor brushing. The other cause is the thinning of the enamel on your teeth – the cause in my case. Brushing with Sensodyne in the mornings and evenings will help relieve sensitivity.
If you have sensitive teeth, Sensodyne created an online test that you can take to determine which product will suit you best. Follow this link and take the test – it only takes a couple of minutes!
