Tanda Pearly Ionic Teeth Whitening

Posted by writeradmin

I want to whiten my teeth but am worried that it will aggravate the jaw pain I have been experiencing recently. I read about a system called Tanda Pearl Teeth Whitening which allows you to whiten your teeth in just five minutes a day. Do you know anything about this? Does it actually work? Do you think that will keep my jaw from hurting while whitening my teeth?


Dear Lisa,

teeth bleaching trays

I am glad you wrote. The whitening ingredient itself is legitimate. It will whiten your teeth. That much is good. I do have a couple of concerns though. First, the supposed ionic light. It is nothing and is there, in my opinion, only for psychological reasons. To me, that says something negative about the company. Second, is the whitening trays they use.

If you were to get teeth whitening done by your dentist, they would make you custom-fitted teeth whitening trays. This will keep the whitening gel in the trays and your saliva out.  The trays provided by this kit will do neither. Because they are DIY in their fit, that means you will end up having some of your saliva seep into your tray, which will weaken the whitening gel. Additionally, your whitening gel will leak out, which not only lessens the effectiveness of the gel even further, but also puts your gums at risk.

There is another issue with their whitening trays. The Tanda Pearl is a single tray that you have to bite down on and keep biting down on in order to keep it in. This will actually aggravate the jaw pain you mentioned. The trays your dentist will make for you are one for each arch. You can wear them comfortably while you go about your day or even while you sleep.

About that jaw pain you are experiencing. This could be a symptom of TMJ Disorder. I would visit with a dentist who has TMJ training in order to see if that is the root cause of your pain. If it is, there are treatments that can help you feel better.
