The first thing Talia noticed when she tried the toothpaste was that it was not as "minty" as the toothpaste we had been using (she loved that because she hates the extreme minty taste a lot of toothpastes have). I, on the other hand, love that minty feeling! I was surprised when Ken mentioned that it wasn't as minty as our previous toothpaste because I found it quite refreshing! (I have tried toothpastes that are less minty and leave me longing for that minty fresh feeling- this wasn't one of those- my mouth still felt very fresh).
I've only been using the toothpaste for a few days, but it's definitely working at least as well as my previous toothpaste for sensitivity. It's formulated to shield and even repair sensitive teeth with regular use. I'm kinda bummed that I don't have any popsicles or ice cream in the house to test this new toothpaste out on- I am told that you can massage it on your tooth for one minute and notice a difference right away- how cool is that?! Most other sensitivity toothpastes contain potassium nitrate, which primarily numbs the tooth nerve, masking the pain of tooth sensitivity, and will take 2 weeks of use before relief is delivered. Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief toothpaste works by plugging the channels that lead to the sensitive tooth nerves, to block the pain.
