Tooth sensitivity, or dentin hypersensitivity, can develop over time as a result of enamel wear and receding gums. This can cause the softer, inner part of your teeth called dentin to become exposed, causing you to feel that characteristic short sharp jolt of pain.
Sensodyne benefits include 24/7 sensitivity protection* with stannous fluoride and potassium nitrate, which soothes the nerves in your teeth. It also helps to re-harden the enamel and provides freshness, clean feeling, and whiter teeth.
A sensitive tooth is a painful experience that can be caused by brushing too hard, teeth grinding, receding gums and certain foods. Sensodyne is the number one dentist recommended toothpaste brand for sensitive teeth and gums. It is specially formulated to provide fast, lasting relief and ongoing protection, with just twice daily brushing.
It has a low abrasion formula that gently and effectively cleans your teeth while also protecting your sensitive areas with a patented blend of active ingredients (including Novamin) that quickly builds up a protective layer over your exposed dentine. It also contains potassium nitrate and strontium acetate/chloride which help reduce the nerve impulses that cause sensitivity pain.
The unique formula of sensodyne rapidly beats sensitivity pain in just three days, providing clinically significant sensitivity relief with just two daily brushings. It is also specially formulated to improve gum health by targeting and removing plaque bacteria to reduce swollen and bleeding gums, and it offers all the benefits of regular cavity protection toothpaste.
Sensodyne whitening toothpaste gently lifts stains to help whiten teeth and provides ongoing sensitivity relief when brushed twice daily.
Sensitivity pain occurs when the softer, inner part of your tooth called dentin becomes exposed, revealing tiny holes or tubules. When these are triggered by hot or cold foods and drinks they can cause that short, sharp jolt of sensitivity pain.
When you use a sensodyne toothpaste with stannous fluoride, it builds a layer over the sensitive parts of your tooth to prevent your nerves from being stimulated by painful triggers. This is why senodyne is the #1 dentist recommended sensitivity toothpaste.
Sensodyne also has an effective tartar control agent that helps reduce plaque bacteria to help improve gum health. In addition, all senodyne sensitivity toothpastes are gluten free and do not contain sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS).
Sensodyne toothpaste for sensitive teeth offers a fresh mint flavor and delivers a clean mouth feeling. The toothpaste cleans the surface of your teeth and between them and works inside the tooth to help calm nerves for 24 hours. The Sensodyne Pronamel toothpaste freshens breath, strengthens teeth and protects against enamel damage, sensitivity and tartar. The toothpaste contains fluoride to protect against cavities, remineralizes teeth and removes stains and leaves a clean feeling.* iv.
Sensodyne toothpastes with stannous fluoride build protective layers to shield teeth from painful triggers. Potassium nitrate, another key ingredient, works in a different way by hyperpolarizing the nerve endings inside your tooth, blocking the signals that cause the pain.
Your dentist may recommend a specific Sensodyne formula depending on the causes of your sensitive teeth. These include brushing too hard (toothbrush abrasion) and gum recession, which can expose the roots of your teeth and lead to sensitivity.
Sensodyne offers a range of products that address sensitive teeth and other oral health needs. For example, Sensodyne Rapid Relief is designed to relieve sensitivity in just three days with twice daily brushing. While Sensodyne Pronamel is a daily toothpaste that can control tartar, freshen breath, and strengthen acid-weakened enamel to help protect against enamel erosion, which can lead to sensitivity.
