    Using a hard bristled brush can be harmful

    In oral care, there is never a reason to choose a hard toothbrush. Hard bristles are more likely to wear away your teeth's enamel and your gums. If only long, vigorous brushing makes your mouth feel clean, you could be doing more damage than good to your teeth and gums with a hard bristled toothbrush.

  • What is sensitivity

    When the enamel that protects our teeth gets thinner, or when gumline recedes, the underlying surface, the dentin loses its protective layer.  This exposes the nerve endings inside our tooth to hot, cold, acidic or sticky foods, resulting in the characteristic sharp painful sensation.
