Ah the holidays...

Not only do they do a number on your pocket book and waistline,
they can do a number on your teeth!

Which is why Colgate has a new line out, to help you solve that problem!

But first, let's talk about enamel:

The enamel on your teeth is the hardest and most highly mineralized substance in your body. It covers the outer layer of each tooth, and it is the most visible part of the tooth. The enamel is made up mostly of minerals, primarily hydroxyapatite. The color can vary from light yellow to grayish white. Because it is semi-translucent, it is only partially responsible for the color of your teeth.

Enamel plays a very important role in protecting your teeth from decay, so it is important to do everything that you can to prevent your enamel from eroding. It forms a strong barrier that shields the inner layers of your teeth from the effects of acids and plaque. It also protects the sensitive inner layers of your teeth from foods and beverages that are very hot or very cold.

You can protect your enamel by avoiding foods that are known to cause a lot of damage. Sugary foods and acidic fruits and beverages are among the most damaging to your enamel. When those substances stick to your teeth and interact with bacteria in your mouth, lactic acid is produced, which can damage your enamel. Biting or chewing very hard foods, like hard candy or ice cubes, can also damage your enamel by causing it to crack or chip. So avoid these foods when you can, and if you do consume them, remember to brush thoroughly afterward.

 This new toothpaste helps your enamel in two ways:
- Helps replenish natural calcium and other minerals back into weakened enamel, filling rough spots and making it stronger
Gently polishes the enamel surface with gentle micro-polishing action, so germs are less likely to stick to teeth

This new tooth brush has several features that complement the Enamel Health toothpaste, The uniquely designed bristles help protect enamel surfaces and gums, as they are 48% softer than normal brushes, while the polishing whitening cups gently remove stains for a brighter smile. Plus the cheek and tongue cleaner help to remove 98% more bacteria than other tooth brushes! The raised cleaning tips help get into hard=to=reach places to remove more bacteria too! 

Since I started using the toothpaste and toothbrush combo, I have found I have had less sensitivity, and my teeth feel cleaner and look better! So I would say it is definitely helping me! I like the clean mint taste and it doesn't feel abrasive, or harsh. I really like the toothbrush, as it really seems to clean your mouth better. Bad breath really seems to be at bay as well, which is probably due to the amount of bacteria it removes!
