The warmer months are now nipping at our heels, and for me, warmer months offer some of the better things in life. Sandals, swimsuits, beaches and ice cream! Those are all definitely a few of my favorite things. Especially the ice cream! What I don't like though, is the oral pain I sometimes get from those tasty, cold treats. I don't think I realized how good I had it when I was a kid and could just bite right into a triple dip cone. Now, I think I'm lucky if I can get through a scoop without suffering hours of pain on my teeth and gums afterwards. Now that spring is here, I am in full spring clean mode, and I realize it's time to give my medicine cabinet an overhaul. I am tossing out my old toothpastes and replacing them with Colgate Enamel Health.
Last year, Colgate launched a new line of toothpaste products to help replenish natural calcium for stronger, healthy enamel called Colgate Enamel Health. This year they have expanded the product line with the newest toothpaste variant- Colgate Enamel Health Multi-Protection Toothpaste. Not only does it replenish calcium to weak spots, it gently polishes for healthy enamel.
Here is a great example of how the new Colgate Enamel Health Toothpastes work. Using a piece of chalk to demonstrate plaque and germs, I rubbed it across a textured tile, then again over a smooth tile. The textured tile shows how plaque and germs can stick to rough tooth surface, where if the tooth enamel is smooth and polished, it is less likely to stick.
In addition to the new toothpaste, Colgate is proud to introduce a breakthrough product for sensitivity suffers, like me. Introducing new Colgate Sensitive Toothbrush + Built-in Sensitivity Relief Pen.
How does it work? Simple! A week before enjoying your ice cream, replace your regular toothbrush with the Colgate Sensitive Toothbrush + Built-in Sensitivity Relief Pen. After brushing, simply apply the gel in the pen directly to the source of the pain and gently massage for one minute. No need to rinse! The gel in the pen creates a seal against sensitivity pain to shield the exposed nerve instead of merely numbing the pain. Within a week you get long-lasting relief with continued use of the product. It's as easy as Brush. Apply. Go!
You can find these new products from Colgate at most large retailers nationwide.
