Toothsticks is a revolutionary product designed to clean, soothe, and protect your teeth and gums. It is based on many years of experience by practicing Registered Dental Hygienist Sandra Senzon. At the Manhattan Tooth Spa, Sandra perfected the botanical ingredients used in Toothsticks to whiten teeth, soothe the gums, and repair damage due to gum disease. With normal usage one tooth stick lasts for about a week. Teeth Whitening Follow Up. Use Toothsticks after tooth whitening procedures to soothe sore gums and address the sensitivity that comes with bleaching. The natural fluorine in Toothsticks reduces the inflammation of the gum tissue and desensitizes tooth pain. Use it during the day for healing gums and after foods that stain, like coffee, tea, tobacco or blueberries, to keep your teeth white. Gum disease. If you have been diagnosed with gum disease, toothsticks are an important part of your recovery. Use your toothstick throughout the day to keep the healing properties of natural fluorine on your gums and teeth. When you use your toothstick before flossing, the floss glides over the tissue and there isn't damage to the gums. Toothsticks prevents plaque from attaching to the teeth and gums, and less plaque means less bacteria in the blood stream. Use Toothsticks instead of brushing with toothpaste. Toothpaste has chemical additives that can be digested through the gum tissue, especially if the gums are bleeding.
