I was given the amazing opportunity to try out the latest Oral-B toothpaste as a member of Super Savvy Me’s Savvy Circle. I was excited about this particular project as I have found that during this pregnancy, my teeth have become quite sensitive to cold drinks and my gums have been bleeding when I brush my teeth. This has been a big issue for me because at the moment I only like my drinks ice cold and I hate going to the dentist! I thought I would give this toothpaste a try before forcing myself to book the dreaded dentist appointment.
The Oral-B Gum & Enamel Repair toothpaste has ActivRepair technology which targets the gum line area with a dual action on gums & enamel, to get to the root of many oral health problems. As we age, our teeth can become more sensitive and our gums may be irritated during brushing and during pregnancy this can be accelerated. I’ve even heard horror stories about women’s teeth crumbling during pregnancy!!!
When I initially tried the toothpaste, I almost quit the project straight away. I didn’t like the texture at all. I am used to a super smooth paste whereas the Oral-B one has a slightly grainy feel to it.
I have to admit I was a bit sceptical about the results I’d get before I tried this toothpaste but I was actually impressed. I can honestly say that in the 2 weeks that I tried the toothpaste, my teeth are in better condition than before the trial. My teeth are definitely less sensitive and I haven’t experienced gum bleeding since. Whilst it worked for me, my partner didn’t notice much of a difference but then he doesn’t suffer from any noticeable oral issues.
My only downside would be the price of the toothpaste. At £4 RRP, it is a bit high and is beyond what I would normally pay for a tube of toothpaste for regular use. It is also not the easiest product to locate in stores at the moment, possibly because it is quite new!
Overall, I would recommend this toothpaste as a quick fix for teeth sensitivity and gum repair. I am going to continue to use it throughout my pregnancy in the hopes of preventing my teeth from falling out!
