Sensodyne Rapid Relief
Advantages: Works, easy to use.
Disadvantages: Doesnt make your teeth feel clean when brushed with.
I had an accident a few years ago and knocked out a tooth. From then the rest of my teeth have been sensitive and at times found it hard to bite into anything. They felt wobbly, making me paranoid that all of my teeth were going to fall out because of how sensitive they were. When i would speak, they just felt painful.
But i thought that i would just have to live with it and so I got on with it, then i tried Sensodyne rapid relief. My dentist gave me a couple of sample tubes after telling him about my problem (He had been my dentist all of my life, and fit my braces, bridge etc).
Sensosyne is distributed by GlaxoSmithKline, which is a rather big company, owning many famous products, so i was hoping for the best, although i wasnt convinced.
At first i thought that it wouldnt make any difference, but as soon as i used it, there was no longer any shooting pains at all. My teeth felt secure again, as the sensitivity made them feel loose and wobbly.
However, the problem with the paste was that i felt like i had to brush my teeth with normal toothpast as well as sensodyne. The past never made my mouth feel clean, and the texture felt a bit sticky, and didnt foam as well as my other tooth paste did. The tast and smell of the paste was typically minty, as you would expect, but there was certainly a medicated effect to it. It actually smelt more like the mouth wash you have at the dentist than a normal everyday toothpaste.
Like most toothpastes again it contains fluoride. Which helps with cavaties.
Sometimes i feel that all i have to do is place some of the past onto the teeth that hurt, and they feel normal again.
However, over all, this was a small price to pay as the sensodyne worked, and made sure i wasnt worrying about my teeth all of the time, and gave me the confidence to carry on with my life :) I would reccoment buying this toothpaste, although it is a little pricey, so if intrigued but not convinced like i wasnt, go to your dentist and ask for a small sample tube!
Summary: Effective product, a little pricey, but works like it claims it does,
