Colgate Sensitive PRO Relief

This week we are going to be reviewing Colgate Sensitive- PRO Relief ™

Please note- this is an independent review and we are in no way affiliated with Colgate®

Many of us experience sensitivity for reasons including-

  • Over-brushing– brushing too hard can wear away the enamel, exposing the sensitive dentine layer underneath.
  • Gum disease– if gum disease is left untreated, there is a risk of gum recession and bone loss which can cause sensitivity.
  • Erosion- if we over-indulge in high acidity food/drinks, there is a risk of tooth erosion, which involves the enamel being worn away by acid.
  • Whitening- temporary sensitivity is common during teeth whitening procedures.
  • Clenching/grinding
  • Cracked, broken and decayed teeth.

How does Colgate Sensitive PRO-Relief™ compare with other sensitive toothpastes on the market?

According to Colgate®, its Pro-Argin® formula instantly seals channels to sensitive nerves and creates a fixed, long-term barrier to pain when used regularly. Colgate® Sensitive Pro-Relief™ Toothpaste with Pro-Argin® Technology is the only sensitivity toothpaste offering clinically proven instant and long lasting relief from dentine hypersensitivity, together with the recommended fluoride level for caries prevention (1450ppm F).

Case Study/

One of our Nurses has used Colgate Sensitive PRO-Relief™ for years due to enamel wear and exposed dentine, particularly on her back molars. Discomfort can range from a slight ache to full on pain and throbbing. She says, “I have used PRO-Relief for years. When it first came out, there was a lot of buzz in the dental industry and I was particularly interested in the “instant relief” aspect.” Our Nurse has kindly (and bravely) volunteered to ditch her beloved toothpaste for a regular one for a 1 week trial and here is what she had to say.

“I had NO idea how effective PRO-Relief was whilst I was using it! You take things for granted sometimes and I just assumed my sensitivity had calmed down over time naturally. After a week of not using it, I can see now how wrong I was! Within about 2 days my teeth were aching and drinking cold drinks or eating anything sweet sent twinges through my teeth. I must admit I did use a couple of blobs on my finger to rub into the worst areas, just for a bit of relief, but I did stick to Colgate Total™ for my morning/nightly brushes. I won’t be coming off it again, it does an awful lot of work behind the scenes! I have also heard great reviews about Sensodyne® Rapid Relief but I’m too scared to switch now knowing how well this works for me”
