Arm & Hammer Sensitive Toothpaste

First off, I apologize for my absence. Things have been a little crazy the past so many months, but I'm back and will be doing some reviews and things here and there again. Today I am writing about a product that I received from Smiley360 to try and share. If any of you have kept up with my blog, then you know that I have done a couple of these in the past. It's the Arm & Hammer Sensitive Toothpaste.

When I saw this opportunity on their site, I knew I had to take advantage of it. I have extremely sensitive teeth. They have been this way since I can remember. It's so bad that I cannot drink anything with ice in it, or even a chilled drink from the coolers at the store. It has to be room temperature. My husband thinks I'm weird, and has no idea how I can stand a soda at room temp. I guess it is a little weird, but it keeps me from having to experience the pain I do.

They sent me 3 travel size tubes (about 1 oz each) and I started using it right away. Firstly, I love the mild taste it has. Some toothpastes will set my mouth on fire, and I brush once to twice daily. It's worse when I am brushing my tongue. This does not cause that sensation, but still leaves my mouth fresh and clean.

Another aspect that I liked is that it is by arm & hammer, so it also is a whitening toothpaste. I couldn't believe that a whitening toothpaste would also fight sensitivity. It's an oxymoron for me. Whitening strips, toothpaste, gels, you name it usually causes sensitivity. I was a little skeptical to be honest.

Of course the main reason to love this toothpaste is that it decreases sensitivity...yay!  I mean, that's the whole point right? Well for me it is. It is from the makers from Orajel, so if anyone knows about oral pain it's them.  I have been using this toothpaste for about 3 weeks and I really have noticed a difference. Don't get me wrong, it's not a huge difference, but a little. I am able to drink a soda from a cooler with no problems, though I still can't tolerate ice in them. Plus, my teeth are a nicer shade of white. So really, it's a win, win.

Now, this probably won't do miracles like prescription strength, or Sensodyne, but it is a cheaper alternative, and people with minor teeth sensitivity would probably see much more positive results, but I think it would be worth a try for anyone who is looking for some relief.  I would recommend that if anyone is interested, that you consult with a dentist first. I did not, but that is just my personal choice.
