Protection system for exposed tooth necks and sensitive teeth.
If a tree loses its bark, it is left bare to the mercy of the elements. The situation is similar with teeth if the sensitive tooth necks are exposed and are at risk of cervical caries.
A sore point.
The exposed tooth neck is no longer protected by the gum and is therefore particularly susceptible. Incorrect tooth-brushing (scrubbing), hard toothbrushes and abrasive toothpastes may harm the exposed tooth neck, as it is softer than the hard tooth enamel and more prone to cervical caries. Furthermore, it is made up of lots of fine tubes known as dentinal tubules. They relay external stimuli such as heat, cold, sweetness, sourness or touch to the tooth nerve. The outcome is sensitised, oversensitive teeth.
elmex researchers have developed the scientifically accepted elmex SENSITIVE Protection System to counter this problem. The elmex SENSITIVE products have been tested in studies and, with regular use, offer
