Self-Care To A Tee(th)


Let’s talk about teeth.

I’ve never cared too much about them and for some reason thought they’d take care of themselves, if not, the dentist would spruce them up and I’d be fine until the next visit. Post-braces, I had lost my retainers and hadn’t worried about replacing them. Over time, my teeth shifted and I had used Crest Whitening toothpaste religiously up until recent months.

My teeth would sting and ache especially when there were high-pitch noises or if I ate anything extremely cold or sweet. It was painful and I wasn’t sure how to deal with it.

It wasn’t until my best friend suggested Sensodyne that things really started to improve for my dental health. It didn’t ache as much anymore and I could eat whatever I wanted but I still wanted to go the extra mile to ensure this didn’t happen again.

Then I did it.


I upgraded to an electric toothbrush, but not just any electric toothbrush, I upgraded to the Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic brush and it changed everything. With different modes (ranging from Whitening to Massaging) and gentle vibrations, the toothbrush is equipped with a timer for each section of your mouth so that you’re brushing everything with the appropriate amount of time. Remember those plastic hourglasses your dentist would send you home with to ensure you were brushing long enough? This is the adult version of that.

I’m so glad I changed things up in my routine before it was too late. I definitely took my dental health for granted and would never wish that discomfort on anyone.
