I have a very sensitive teeth and gums and I stick to only one brand of toothpaste. When we went to the leading supermarket few weeks ago, there was no available brand so I chose the other one instead. The problem is, my gums and teeth become swollen every time I try the other brand with flavor. It should be at least plain and no flavor at all. Now I am back to Sensodyne.
Sensitive teeth are most likely to happen when you drink or eat cold or sometimes hot foods or drinks. I already had this painful gums yesterday but I still craved for chocolates and donuts with strawberry fillings. I should not complain now. I gave in to my cravings that added to my swollen gums today.
I remember one time when I consulted the dentist about sensitivity of gums and prescribed a certain brand. I forgot the name. :( When rubbed, I immediately felt relieved.
