Happy Mother’s Day weekend to all the moms out there! For me, Mother’s Day means a day of relaxing and kicking back with my two beautiful girls, enjoying some time outdoors, and even going off diet a little bit to enjoy some of my favorite treats, which this time of year, means ice cream! Diet aside, I often forgo my my favorite treats because I am among one of the 40 million people, according to the Academy of General Dentistry, that suffer from sensitive teeth. While I love ice cream, the pain for me comes from my teeth rather than brain freeze! If I bite into ice cream (or any cold food really) with the wrong tooth, I can feel the pain down to my jaw.
Luckily this Mother’s Day, Tom’s of Maine is helping me enjoy my ice cream with their new Rapid Relief Sensitive Toothpaste. Tom’s new toothpaste works with a combination of arginine, an amino acid, and calcium carbonate. What this special combination of ingredients (which are derived from natural sources) does is actually seal the pathways to sensitive nerves that cause that jaw-deep pain for me. This is different from other toothpastes for sensitive teeth, which only numb the pain – Tom’s of Main Rapid Relief Sensitive Toothpaste actually creates a protective shield around your sensitive tooth – and it’s the only toothpaste in the US to use this technology!
In addition to using it as a toothpaste, it works really really fast as a “spot treatment”. You can get relief in 60 seconds when you rub a sensitive tooth with a fingertip gently for one minute – and then you are free to enjoy your favorite foods! Plus with regular brushing, it offers long-lasting protection.
AND, if you’re not already a fan of Tom’s of Maine, get ready to be. 10% of their profits go back to supporting people and our planet, and their toothpaste uses no artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors or preservatives and they do not animal test or use animal ingredients. Plus their packaging is recyclable through TerraCycle Tom’s of Maine Recycling Program
What’s not to love??? If you’re ready to give Tom’s new Rapid Relief Sensitive Toothpaste a try, you can pick up a 40z. tube for $5.99 at Walmart, Walgreens, CVS and Amazon! For me, it’s back to the ice cream!
What foods bother your teeth, and how can Tom’s help you enjoy the foods you love?
