I’m not a fan of taxes BUT I do make an exception one day a year. On Halloween, I’m ok with becoming a tax collector of sorts. The candy tax was probably one of the first parenting enforcements that I’ve enjoyed implementing.
I was invited to attend a Q & A session with Dr. Travis Stork to learn more about oral health and the challenges of patients with sensitive teeth . You might recognize him from the Bachelor or from his daytime current Emmy nominated talk show “The Doctors.” Dr. Travis Stork has partnered with Crest and Oral B health to help others understand how oral health is an important part of overall health.
We talked about how 50% of people are affected by sensitive teeth at some point in their lives. This can be caused by gum recession, weakened enamel and other factors. Many people avoid hot and cold food and beverages and change oral care habits because of the pain.
This led Crest to develop a product that provides relief and allows people to return to foods and beverages that they avoided pain free.
So how do Crest Sensi Stop Strips relieve the pain?
With Crest Sensi-Stop Strips, the right amount of tooth sensitivity treatment is applied exactly where it is needed. They are designed to cover the outer gumline of sensitive teeth for just 10 minutes. Using the same ingredient as some professional treatments, exposed dentinal tubules are blocked. Dentinal tubules are small passageways that lead directly to nerve endings. These tubules can be exposed due to the loss of enamel from teeth and receding gums.
1 strip, applied for 10 minutes, once a month can restore someone to their favorite foods or drinks.
The strips cover about 3 teeth. Half of the people who try the strips benefit immediately after the 1st treatment. The strips have oxalates, which is the 1/5 of the amount oxalates found in an apple. The strips are more comfortable and more targeted to the sensitive area than holding an apple on your teeth for 10 minutes.
If you have a cavity it won’t stop or mask the pain. That’s why overall oral health is important. Flossing and using Crest Pro health toothpaste provides coverage for your whole mouth from cavities, plaque, tartar, gingivitis while helping whiten and freshen your breath.
I love using products that cover everything at once that also give me fresh breath. If you have sensitive teeth, I really encourage you to check this product out to see if it helps make your daily life more enjoyable.
We learned so much during our Q & A session. Dr. Stork was really nice and even gracious enough to do selfies with The Healthy Hen and I after the session. We will definitely be more mindful about making sure that we are proactive when it comes to our overall oral health. Thanks for the tips Dr. Stork!
