Fresh, Clean, White and Not Sensitive

Did I tell ya’ll that at the ripe old age of 40, I have cavities? I’d been noticing my teeth were more sensitive, and when I went to the dentist, there they were–the beginnings of four tiny cavities, the first I’ve ever had. So far, 2 have been filled, and I have the other two scheduled at the end of the month. So! Cavities! In my mouth! Unacceptable! I’m flossing, which is something I never bothered to do before, and I am investigating toothpastes, because! Cavities! are! bad!

The first toothpaste I am experimenting with is this new one from Biotene. It has several attributes that I am enjoying after years of using cinnamon (Not gonna say, bit it starts with a C, ends with a t, and rhymes with test). Most noticeable to me is what’s missing, and that’s a mouthful of weird frothy stuff. Ewwww, that is something I hated, and had no idea you could live without. But, hey–froth-free toothpaste?? I’m sold right there! I also like the flavor, which is very understated. A little fruity, but not overpowering. Whodda thunk my teeth could feel so clean without burning a hole in my tongue?

Oh, yeah, back to the sensitive teeth part. The whole point is that it’s a sensitive toothpaste, right? Well, Biotene says it resolves the problem that causes sensitive teeth, instead of just masking it. I can’t speak to that, not being a dentist and all, but I imagine when I go back at the end of the month, we’ll find out, now won’t we?
