    An Aunty in my building is having dental problems. Even WaterPik hurts her teeth.

    She is looking for X-tra X-tra soft toothbrush. When I emailed home, they say they no longer sell it.

    I am looking through Amazon, but I see some toothbrushes Made in China. She don't trust.

    Please give some ideas. She wants to fix her teeth so she can eat Diwali sweets!

    Her tooth seems to be very sensitive.
    Is she seeing a dentist?Does she do cleaning on a regular basis?

    She is in a high-COVID zone and TERRIFIED to go to dentist because she has to remove her facemask.

    TERRIFIED

    She only uses thick floss.

    My Aunty only uses Dental Floss, followed by Waterpik at the lowest intensity. She hasn't brushed for 2 months.

    This is quite upsetting. We emailed the Dental office, but no one got back. Hope we can reach someone tomorrow.

    Few people told to use Children's toothbrush, such as Colgate, Oral B but
    1. They are not x-tra x-tra soft --- on the contrary they are still too hard
    2. The handle and the base of the head is smaller


    She is quite frustrated. And when we emailed Sensodyne for alternatives, there is no reply. They take phone calls M-F, 9am to 5pm, but this is so uncomfortable for her.

    And COVID shot back up!

    :(
