June 16, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Johannesburg, South Africa One of the most common dental problems is sensitive teeth. Colgate® is a leading manufacturer of quality oral health care products and has developed a range of toothpastes that provide relief for sensitive teeth.

Tooth sensitivity affects many people and can often be painful. Sensitive teeth result from dentin becoming exposed and symptoms include a sharp, sudden pain that shoots into the nerve endings of the tooth.

Although dental sensitivity is most common amongst adults, dental problems can occur at any age. For this reason it's vital to encourage good dental hygiene in children to prevent more serious problems developing as they grow older. That's why it is vital to use fluoride toothpaste that provides good germ-fighting protection and prevents bad breath, gum disease and sensitive teeth.

Steps to preventing dental sensitivity

1. Visit your dentist regularly at least every six months
2. Don't brush with a toothbrush that is too hard as it can wear down the enamel and cause the dentin to become exposed
3. Prevent gum disease like Gingivitis which causes tooth sensitivity as it can expose the roots of the tooth
4. Use a good quality toothpaste like Colgate® Sensitive® or Colgate® Sensitive Pro-Relief®

The Colgate® Sensitive® range of toothpastes is clinically proven to provide everyday protection from painful sensitive teeth. This range of toothpastes offer long-lasting protection from the symptoms of sensitive teeth with continued use and provide protection against cavities.

The Colgate® Sensitive Pro-Relief® range of toothpastes penetrates the nerve for long-lasting relief and also helps repair weakened areas of the tooth. This range of oral hygiene products have been specifically designed to assist people who suffer from hyper-sensitive teeth.
