AMW Reviews: Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief

January 1, 2013 is more than a week over but it doesn't mean the celebrations will end. We, Filipinos, love to spend time with our friends and loved ones and bonding will always equate to enjoying our favorite meals!  As for me, I still have loads of get-together plans with my friends!

Years ago, I would laugh at my mom and brother each time we eat Halo-Halo or drink something super hot or cold, I'll see them react to pain and I've always thought they were over-reacting!  After some dental checkups, both my brother and mom are said to have sensitive teeth and they've been using specialized tooth care products for years.  

As for me, I've always been very consistent with my dental care in terms of brushing my teeth 3x a day, using mouthwash and flossing.  But after my most recent checkup during my 2nd trimester of pregnancy, I was told by my doctor that I am starting to suffer from gingivitis (gum disease) which may also cause sensitivity due to the loss of supporting ligaments and may expose the root surface that leads to the nerve of the tooth!  No wonder I am starting to have a hard time with my favorite Frozen Yogurt and iced cold drinks!  What's even worst?  I'm recently craving for anything ICE cold!  Frozen fruit salad, Halo-Halo, Chilled Sugarcane juice, Vanilla Ice Cream, etc...Etc... The list definitely goes on!

I may not be into New Year's resolutions but I promised myself I will start taking care of my teeth and will use the right type of toothpaste, mouth wash and toothbrush and not just randomly pick whatever is available at the sink! 

I listened to my dentist's advice when she told me to "Change your brand of toothpaste!”  So I went ahead and picked the newest Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief toothpaste.



The product comes in a uniquely "sealed" tube, guaranteed product freshness!


Colgate says ---
  • Toothpaste with exclusive Pro-Argin™ technology
  • Instant relief (apply toothpaste directly with fingertip for one minute)
  • Lasting protection (with regular use)
Size: 75ml/ 110g

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Very minty.
  • Texture is very thick.
  • Both Mr. AMW and I tried the Sensitive Pro Relief and it does help lessen teeth sensitivity even after first use. (direct application with fingertip leaving product for at least 1 minute.) 
Cons
  • It is  somewhat difficult to find! (I’m glad it’s available in Mercury Drugstore branches. We always go there to check.) 
Overall
Effective for people with sensitive teeth.  The product definitely gives instant relief.
Tips
  • Avoid using hard bristled toothbrush if you have sensitive gums and teeth.
  • Be aware of the brand of toothpaste you use and check with your dentist.
  • Avoid food and drinks that could trigger pain.
  • Have a dental check at least once every 6 months!  
  • For immediate relief, aside from using the toothpaste to brush your tooth, apply toothpaste on to the sensitive tooth with your fingertips.
Will I repurchase?
Yes!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone!  Doesn't have to be people with sensitive teeth but people with healthy gums and teeth can start using this for added protection!

Where to purchase and how much?
Bought mine at Mercury Drugstore (Retiro Branch) for Php144.00 (approx $3.60).


They also have another sensitive toothpaste, Colgate Sensitive Whitening, which also provides sensitivity relief but costs cheaper at only Php89.00. (approx.. $2.23).



I am proud to say, I can easily enjoy my frozen yogurt last weekend without pain!
