Decades of fruit juice, fizzy drinks, previous tooth whitening and nocturnal tooth grinding have unfortunately taken a toll on my teeth making them super sensitive. I have heard of the tooth-protecting effects of Sensodyne and upon trying their products, I have remained loyal to this brand for years since.
Growing up I was never really taught the detrimental effects of acidic food and drink on teeth. If you were or you weren't taught this in your childhood, let me remind you:
Enamel is the white, mineral rich outer layer of our teeth that protects the sensitive bony dentin underneath. If your enamel is thick and healthy then it gives you a strong white smile. However, over time acidic foods and drinks can erode the enamel and expose the yellow and dull dentin underneath. If your teeth become sensitive, appear yellow, dull and thin, then it could be a sign of weakened or acid softened enamel.
Acid erosion is caused by frequent eating and drinking sugary acidic food and drink, such as fruit juice, fizzy drinks, alcohol, and even coffee and salad dressings. If your diet is healthy then don’t change it. As long as your enamel is protected every day, then there's no reason why you can't enjoy acidic foods and drinks as part of a healthy diet, as well as healthy strong enamel.
Once enamel’s gone, it’s gone forever.
If you are like me, with sensitive teeth, you may benefit from the Sensodyne Pronamel Range.
Sensodyne Pronamel Mouthwash and Toothpaste* are recommended by Dentists due to their unique optimised fluoride formulations that actively strengthen weakened enamel.
Pronamel toothpaste also helps to prevent further enamel from dissolving. The toothpaste and mouthwash have each also been specially designed for people at risk of Acid Wear.
With Pronamel, minerals penetrate deep into the enamel surface, actively strengthening and re-hardening weakened enamel making it healthy, stronger and better protected from the effects of acids - every day.
Used twice a day it helps:
Protect your teeth from the effects of Acid Wear
Protect your teethfrom sugar acids, a leading cause of tooth decay
Maintain healthy teeth and gums
Clean and freshen your mouth
It's no surprise I recommend Sensodyne Pronamel. Come and join me on the Sensodyne Pronamel bandwagon!
