July 21st is National Ice Cream Day, but for those who suffer with sensitive teeth, the holiday might not be that fun. We spoke with top NYC dentist and spokesperson for Sensodyne, Dr. Nancy Rosen, for the scoop on some sweet relief so you can enjoy the day.
So how do you know if you have sensitive teeth? When tooth enamel wears away, it exposes the soft, inner layer of your tooth called dentin. This dentin houses thousands of microscopic channels that run toward the center of the tooth where the nerve lives. Certain triggers, like ice cream or hot tea can stimulate the nerve, causing tooth sensitivity.
Switching to a daily sensitivity toothpaste, like Sensodyne Rapid Relief, is an easy way to help you enjoy the foods and drinks you love with proven sensitivity relief after just three days of twice-daily brushing. Through its unique formulation with stannous fluoride, the toothpaste works by creating a protective layer over your exposed dentin. For more information check out Sensodyne.com.
