I have had sensitive teeth for as long as I can remember. I haven’t had a cavity since adolescence, though I did break a molar pre pregnancy (oh the glorious ways pregnancy visits our bodies).
I have regular dental check ups though I cringe at the cleanings. Metal tools on sensitive teeth is like fingernails on a chalkboard. I have used toothpaste for tooth sensitivity non-stop, never leave home without it. Despite this, my teeth are so sensitive that I limit what I eat and drink everyday, so much so that I don’t even notice how I accommodate my sensitive teeth. It has become automatic for me to chew hard, crunchy or cold foods in certain spots and bring liquids to neutral temperature before moving them around in my mouth. Conveniently, red wine is the perfect temperature!
Most people take for granted that they can freely eat fruits, veggies, ice cream, and anything really. I however consider the texture and temperature of all foods and beverages before preparing meals or ordering in a restaurant. I have even had to literally bite my tongue after accidentally chewing the wrong food the wrong way. The shooting pain of sensitive teeth is serious business, and that is why I was happy to write about the Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief Challenge.
Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief (CSPR) goes beyond just masking the pain of tooth sensitivity and plugs the channels that lead to tooth nerves thereby blocking the pain. CSPR not only offers instant relief, but with regular use, it builds a protective barrier sealing out sensitivity.
Colgate is inviting sensitive teeth sufferers to participate in the Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief Challenge and say goodbye to sensitive teeth! You can go to the Colgate Sensitive website for a free sample of CSPR toothpaste – one sample per household. You will receive a trial size tube of CSPR toothpaste and a coupon for $1 off Colgate Pro-Relief toothpaste. Then:
- give the toothpaste a try by rubbing it directly on your sensitive teeth for 1 minute
- eat or drink something that typically triggers tooth sensitivity and experience instant relief!
- review CSPR online for a chance to win one (1) NESPRESSO® U Pure Orange coffee machine and one (1) gift basket containing a 1 yearsupply of Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief products
Don’t head into the holiday season limiting your festivities due to tooth sensitivity! Take the challenge, get relief and have a happy holiday!
