Natural Relief for Sensitive Teeth
Many of us experience occasional or frequent sensitivity of the teeth. This can be pain or unpleasant sensations due to heat, cold, sweets, acids or contact pressure. It is of course important to recognize that such symptoms may be the sign of a more serious condition needing dental treatment, and you should of course deal with those conditions if they exist. In many cases, however, the sensitivity is due to circumstances that dental treatment cannot easily “fix”.
One common cause of sensitivity nowadays is the over-use of teeth-whitening treatments which can in some cases weaken or thin the tooth enamel. This is particularly true when the bleaching effect of the peroxide is combined with a high-abrasive medium such as calcium carbonate.
Even regular brushing with most toothpastes has an abrasive effect that can over time help to wear down the enamel layer. (Note that using the Eco-Dent toothpowders, which rely on the low abrasive cleaning power of baking soda and sea salt, are a great way to provide optimal daily oral hygiene without harsh abrasive action).
Another issue is possible receding of the gums exposing sensitive parts of the teeth to the heat, cold, etc.
Assuming however that you already are experiencing a sensitive teeth problem, the question is how to deal with it effectively. Eco-Dent has recently released the Res-Q-Dent Gel Toothpaste formulation, which provides natural pain relief for teeth sensitivity, while using a low abrasive formula to preserve the tooth enamel. This formula relies on baking soda and kaolin, which is a form of fine clay, rather than calcium carbonate or chalk, which is found in just about all the other “pain relieving” toothpastes in the marketplace. The teeth get “squeaky-clean”, the breath is fresh, and you get relief from the sensitivity without harsh abrasive action that can have long-term detrimental effects!
The Res-Q-Dent formulation is a state of the art product which qualifies as an OTC drug due to its proven ability to reduce pain and sensitivity. It also includes xylitol which has been the subject of a number of studies, as well as aloe to soothe the gums. It does NOT include a lot of ingredients you will find in most commercial toothpastes such as parabens or other artificial preservatives, artificial sweeteners, fluoride, sodium lauryl sulfate, propylene glycol. The product is of course not tested on animals.
